Video review: LEGO Botanical Collection 10289 Bird of Paradise

Watch LEGO Botanical Collection 10289 Bird of Paradise come together in our step-by-step video review of the brick-built flowers.

Launched last year as the third (and largest) entry in the LEGO Group’s Botanical Collection, 10289 Bird of Paradise presents a completely different way to build LEGO flowers, with the majority of its parts concentrated on its vase. Your eye will still be drawn first and foremost to its huge leaves when all’s said and done, but does constructing that base translate to an enjoyable building experience?

That’s the question we’re looking to answer in our latest video review. Whether you’re curious to see how 10289 Bird of Paradise is built or just want to find out which record it breaks, hit play on the video below (or head over to our YouTube channel) to check it out.

If you’d prefer to read a written review of the 1,173-piece set, which was designed by Chris McVeigh – who was also responsible for 10278 Police Station and 10293 Santa’s Visit in 2021 – click here.

10289 Bird of Paradise is available to buy now at, alongside both of the LEGO Group’s other Botanical Collection sets, 10280 Flower Bouquet and 10281 Bonsai Tree.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
