You Can Play Real Music on This 3622-Piece LEGO Grand Piano
Putting together thousands of LEGO pieces can provide hours of entertainment, but there isn't much you can do with most sets once they're assembled. That isn't the case with the new grand piano model from the company; once it's put together, this LEGO set plays like a real instrument, according to Travel + Leisure.
With 3622 pieces and several moving parts, the grand piano is one of the more complex products the toy company has made. Like a real piano, the lid props open to reveal its intricate inner workings, and each of the 25 keys connects to its own hammer, so you can have the satisfaction of playing your toy piano after building it piece by piece. The model also features a keyboard cover that opens, pedals that move up and down, an adjustable bench, and a music stand.
If you don't know how to play a piano of any size, LEGO can take care of that part for you. Connect your creation to a free smartphone app to have it play your choice of five songs on its own. For builders who can read music, the set comes with a piece of sheet music composed by the fan designer who pitched the model idea. You can also use the app to compose and record your own LEGO masterpieces.
The LEGO grand piano is listed at $350 in the LEGO store, though the product is temporarily out of stock. You can watch the complete set in action in the video below.
