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!
