Time for the quickest review ever! I received a copy of 40522 Lovebirds. It’s a quick build and appears to be a Valentine’s Day theme. It features two lovebirds – I’m guessing one male and one female (although I’ve got no idea which is which), a log for them to perch on, and a brick built heart. I’ve really enjoyed these brick built animals in the past, so it’s great to see a really colourful one! The log is well done – very simple with a few embellishments here and there. The assortment of hearts is a nice touch, and there’s enough greenery to not distract from the main attraction – the lovebirds.

They’re short and squat and absolutely adorable! Nothing really exciting going on here. Light bluish grey 1×1 with tooth for feet, excellent shaping and texture, especially on the chest – the rounded tiles make it look almost feathery and layered – and great use of colour and gradients. The little wings are super simple and work very well. Add a little heart to a transparent bar with plates, and we’re done! Quick build, no stickers and a great end result.

40522 is available right now! Get in before they go.

A special thank you to LEGO for sending me a copy to review. All thoughts on this set 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.

    Back order already!
    Disappointed this was hidden on Lego’s website when I bought all my January 1st releases (I hate paying $12.50 on a $19.99 set)
    Thanks for highlighting it!
