    Date:4 August 2020 Author: Kyro Mitchell

    Lego has built a reputation for producing some of the most advanced and detailed scale models. These range from 864-piece models of the International Space Station to a 1:8 scale model of the iconic Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV that costs as much as the vehicle itself.

    The companies latest model is no different. Lego have just released a scale model grand piano that comes with an eye-watering 3,662 individual pieces. Best of all, once you’ve managed to put the piano together, you’d be able to play it.

    The Lego Grand Piano features 25 playable keys that each connect to their very own hammer. If however, you’re not musically inclined, you could simply connect the piano to your smartphone and listen as the piano plays a song of your choice.

    As you would imagine, the real joy of the Lego Grand Piano doesn’t come from the music, but instead comes from actually putting it together. The set comes with moving pedals, an adjustable bench, a lid that opens and folds back, a keyboard cover that opens and closes and a mini a music stand.

    The idea for the grand piano was originally thought up by a fan, with the final product being created by Lego designer Woon Tze Chee, who stayed true to the original idea and used many of the elements submitted by the fan designer.

    The Lego Grand Piano is currently selling for R6 098 [$350] and can be purchased directly from the Lego website.
