The Lego Group has revealed a new Mickey and Friends range created in partnership with Disney, which will introduce five new sets for young children aged four and over.

Each set comes with instructions developed specially for kids just learning to read, as well as Starter Brick elements, such as a big car or plane chassis, that will kickstart the building process. The instructions also feature short build-and-play loops to develop confidence, ensuring an enjoyable building experience that will boost problem-solving, role-play and concentration skills, and encourage resilience while kids play.

“I loved Disney Mickey Mouse, Disney Minnie Mouse and all of their friends when I was younger so designing these sets felt very nostalgic,” says James Stephenson, senior designer at the Lego Group. “We hope the new Lego Disney Mickey and Friends range will offer great fun and role-playing opportunities to help young children learn about friendship, communication and resilience with characters they know and love. With these five new sets, which explore firefighting, flying, trips to a farm, space exploration and shopkeeping, we aim to inspire young children and introduce them to Lego building, whatever their interests.”

The new Mickey and Friends sets for builders aged 4 and over will be available globally from June 1st .

The five sets are as follows:
