LEGO Art grows its mosaic-building ‘relaxation’ portfolio with Harry Potter Hogwarts Crests sets

The LEGO Group is growing its LEGO Art portfolio with the launch of a range of Harry Potter Hogwarts Crests sets, designed to give Harry Potter fans and adult LEGO builders the chance to display their house allegiances.

The new 2D tile mosaic wall art sets each allow Harry Potter enthusiasts to build one of four different Hogwarts house crests: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw with the 4,249 piece set. Four sets can be combined to make the ultimate Hogwarts crest.

LEGO Art offers adults a creative experience to help them relax and recharge as they transform a blank canvas (or in this case, small interlinking base plates) using LEGO tiles. The new LEGO Art Harry Potter Crests set can be reimagined in a number of different ways to display a different crest if loyalties change.

The new launch also comes with an immersive soundtrack designed to give fans a ‘behind the scenes’ peek into the Wizarding World as experts talk more about Hogwarts and the different houses. The range and its soundtrack is designed to helping builders “switch off and explore their love of Harry Potter as they build”.

The soundtrack includes stories of those close to the Wizarding World™ including Miraphora Mina, graphic designer for the Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts films, Eduardo Lima, graphic designer for the Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts films, Alan Gilmore, creative director for the Harry Potter films, Pierre Bohanna, head prop maker for theHarry Potter & Fantastic Beasts films, and Kitt Kossmann, LEGO designer.

A Harry Potter logo tile adds the final touch to the impressive 15.5” (40cm) square tile mosaic before it is proudly hung on the wall. The new LEGO Art Harry Potter Hogwarts Crests set is designer for builders aged 18 and over, and will be available from January 1st, 2021 from LEGO.com, LEGO Stores and other retailers globally priced from $119.99/€119.99.
