A week ago LEGO reached out to me asking if I was interested in taking a look at two new Xtra polybags. It’s been a year since I last looked at one of these – 40341 Sea Accessories. This time around we’ve got 40375 Sports Accessories and 40376 Botanical Accessories. They’re not available until January 1, but are a nice little parts booster. Each of them has some very small builds included, so there’s a tiny little instruction sheet, although it’s probably not needed.

First up there’s the sports gear. The two little builds are a pair of hockey goals and an archery target. As well as this, there’s some hockey sticks and a puck (a black 1×1 round tile), a bow and arrow, a pearl gold trophy, a pair of ice skates, a pair of roller skates, a bike helmet and a motocross helmet, and a pair of skis and sticks.

It’s nice to get this stuff, but it’s all stuff we’ve seen before. The red skates are good, but they’ve been around since 2017. The helmets are nice, but again, we’ve seen them before. It is good to have spares though. In 40341 we got a rare parrot – no such luck with this one. Let’s take a look at the next one.

On to the garden polybag. This one has two small pine trees (presumably of the plants from plants variety), two reddish brown 1×4 fences, some assorted flowers including the beautiful new red variety, plant leaves in both light green and white, green 1×1 curled stems, and my favourite new element, the 1×1 plant with three leaves in two colours – green and orange. Throw in a few other bricks and tree arches and that’s the polybag.

Once again, they’re not unique elements, but they are great to have a few more of in the collection. They’re nice, but not all that rare. Then again, you’re not exactly going to be buying these polybags for the rare elements, are you?

Like the polybag from last year, if you’ve got a spare area in your build that needs filling with sports or botanical bits and pieces, these are worth getting. They’re affordable, so you can probably get a few of them to boost your stock.

A special thank you to LEGO for sending me copies to review. All thoughts on these sets are my own and are not influenced in any way, shape or form. The provision of sets for review does not guarantee a favourable review.
