LEGO House is reopening today, with a new exclusive set for visitors to buy – 40501 The Wooden Duck. This new release was first revealed by LEGO.com’s instructions database, then had a proper unveiling by the LEGO Group’s Stuart Harris and Jme Wheeler.
40501 The Wooden Duck will retail for 599 DKK, which is around £70. The set uses 621 pieces and is the first in a new series of limited edition products. Special printed tiles are included in the box, only available in this set.
The Wooden Duck has been a significant icon for the LEGO Group. While it is one of many wooden toys that the company produced before the move to ABS plastic, it is part of the legendary tale in which Ole Kirk Kristiansen taught his son, Godtfred, that ‘only the best is good enough’.
For a limited time, the current LEGO House exclusives are available at LEGO.com. 4000026 Tree of Creativity and 40366 LEGO House Dinosaurs are available in the UK, Ireland and Denmark as the packaging and instructions only meets legal requirements in those three countries.
