As we have discussed previously (see links at the end of this post), there is a brand new LEGO theme coming next year called LEGO Elves. While the official release is not until March 2015, LEGO already put up the LEGO Elves website. There is not much yet besides a teaser video, but it does give us some insight into this new theme. So let’s take a look! 🙂
As you can see, the official LEGO Elves website is just one page right now that simply says (talking in typical elvish rhyme): “Stay tuned for the story, soon it is here! Believe and March will turn magic this year!” Then there is a teaser video that you can also watch below:
Interesting, isn’t it? The five characters on the picture and in the video above from left to right are Aira Whisperwind (elf girl representing air), Farran Leafshade (elf boy representing earth), Emily Jones (human girl), Naida Riverheart (elf girl representing water), and Azari Firedancer (elf girl representing fire). The story follows Emily Jones (the human girl) on her exciting journey through the magical world of Elvendale. It all starts at a mysterious door at her grandmother’s garden, that turns out to be a portal to the land of the Elves. The only way Emily can get back home is to find four keys, but she can only manage this with the help of her elven friends.
I’m pretty sure there is going to be further teasers coming between now and the official release to tell us more about the story, however it is not known at this point if the adventure will unfold through short videos at the official LEGO Elves website only, or will there also be a TV show. In any case, we know there are going to be six LEGO Elves sets released in March, which we discussed previously, but I will list them again below for your convenience. Also, notice that in the teaser-video there is a big castle in the background. It is very likely that this is an important location in the story (perhaps where Emily will need to take the keys), and will be another LEGO Elves sets released at a later date. 🙄

So far I like everything about LEGO Elves. The sets are just lovely with all those fantastic new elements, sweet colors, and cute mini-dolls. It is a nice expansion of the LEGO Friends line into the realm of fantasy. I can see these sets becoming very popular with both young boys and girls, and of course adults too. LEGO Friends and LEGO Disney Princess (both using the mini-dolls instead of the regular minifigures) have been having very strong years, and looks like 2015 is going to be no exception. In addition to those two themes, now we will have LEGO Elves. Looks like LEGO finally found the right angle to appeal to girls who would otherwise not be into LEGO and construction toys. You can check out the currently available LEGO Friends and LEGO Disney Princess at the Online LEGO Shop.
What about you? How do you like LEGO Elves? Are you looking forward to this theme? And what do you think of the teaser-trailer? And the story? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
