The LEGO® Company in Vienna has presented a new collection on the theme of death and the funeral ceremony. The presentation of such an unusual set took place at the funeral museum at the central cemetery of Vienna. 

According to the creators of the new set, it will help children better understand the topic of death from an early age. The set includes everything you need: a funeral carriage, a hearse, a funeral tram, an excavator, a crematorium stove, cemetery personnel, a grieving family, a deceased, skeletons, and even a grave with gravestone.

Psychologists have noted that they fully support such an idea, because death cannot be avoided, and playing such toys, children will be emotionally prepared in advance for what is to happen in the future.

I can imagine that the new games and sets of the Vienna Funeral Museum will be used in the practice of psychotherapists for children,” commented Michaela Tomek, a specialist at the Vienna State Association for Psychotherapy.

While the new LEGO® sets have not arrived at the store shelves, they can only be purchased in Vienna at the funeral museum or through their online store.

In the meantime, LEGO® has denied this information about new products. According to a company representative, initially information about the kits appeared on a German-language website.

We officially declare that neither the site nor the funeral sets have anything to do with the LEGO® Group. Our priority is to provide creative play experience for children. We know that LEGO® sets help express ideas to millions of people around the world. Thousands of projects are created using LEGO® bricks, however, we do not approve all of the projects. This case is just an example of this, "said the LEGO® Company.

Would you buy one of these for your child? Do you think it is an effective and sensitive way to teach children about the realities of death? Let us know what you think in the comments!
