To ensure kids of all ages have something to build, LEGO Group has teamed up with Disney to debut a new Mickey and Friends range.

Each of the five sets features classic Disney characters—Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Donald Duck—designed “to spark creativity and imaginative play” for kids aged four and up.

The sets only use a limited number of bricks and come with a simple instruction booklet, which is easy for preschoolers to understand.

The toys also have short build-and-play loops, which can help young builders hone their building skills while enhancing problem-solving and concentration.

James Stephenson, a senior designer from LEGO Group, said he felt “nostalgic” while designing the Disney sets.

“We hope the new LEGO Disney Mickey Mouse 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,” Stephenson said in a statement.

“With these five new sets that 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,” he added.
