#1233 SET REVIEW: 10281 Botanical Collection: Bonsai Tree

Updated: May 1, 2021

Our next review is the second item released recently in the new Botanical Collection - the Bonsai Tree (10281).

We were sent this by LEGO but our view is unbiased and we aim to provide a unique review from the perspective of a MOC builder and fan of building techniques. We score sets out of 100, giving 20 points each for a variety of factors.

Overall, the Bonsai is an excellent set to display in your home or office and it features a surprising amount of interesting techniques and parts. With two options included for different blossom and leaves, plus the ability to use the trunk and base to create your own style of blossom, this set really has a lot of potential.

Here is our full review with technique breakdown, part selection and a look at the inspiration images for making other bonsai!
