It doesn’t require cutting down, watering or dragging out to the green bin at the end of the holiday season. And you’ll possibly enjoy decorating it even more than your real Christmas tree.
The newly released Lego Christmas tree kit currently costs $89 on Amazon, or you can get it at the Lego website for $44.99. This set has 784 pieces including tiny faux candles, ornaments and a star for the tree topper.
It’s actually a 2-in-1 Lego kit. You can either build one taller, 11-inch Christmas tree or two smaller trees that are 6 inches and 9 inches tall. You can also, of course, change up the decor if you have other Legos at home you’d like to incorporate. The Lego Christmas tree is recommended for builders 12 and up.

One Amazon reviewer said that her 10-year-old loved this set.
“The whole piece is bigger than I expected and a perfect addition to our Christmas decorations while adding my son’s love of Legos,” Blutziyona wrote. “Though this isn’t Lego brand, these pieces for nice and tight and he even said they’re hard to take off when misplaced, which is good knowing all the decorations on the tree and around it won’t fall off easily. The music is beautiful and the rotating of the trains and the star move nice and smooth.”
There’s also a 506-piece version on sale for $25.59. You can clip a 5% coupon on the page for both versions right now.
