LEGO has announced a Grand-Piano set - and yes, you can actually play it! The set consists of 3662 parts with a real piano mechanism. The piano has 25 keys, each with its own hammer. In addition, there is a dedicated music stand and a small chair with adjustable height.
To play the piano yourself, you need to connect it to your phone and the dedicated LEGO app. In this mode, there are five songs available: pressing any key will sound the desired note of the selected song. Alternatively, you can turn on the autoplay function, then the keys will be pressed by themselves.
The LEGO Ideas Grand Piano set has been in development for quite few years. It was initially conceived by music teacher and LEGO enthusiast Donny Chen, and made it to market thanks to the LEGO Ideas platform.
The set will go on sale on August 1st. The price will be $349.99 and €349.99 – Yes, it is the most expensive LEGO Ideas set ever.
