Product Idea |



This set is based on the Japanese animated movie 'My Neighbour Totoro' by Hayao Miyazaki.

In the movie you meet three friendly forest spirits, Totoros. They live under and inside a huge camphor tree. In this set, they are sitting in their favorite spot: at the very top of the camphor tree. 

The Totoros can be taken out of the tree and played with. In the movie, there is a charming sequence with the big Totoro standing at a bus stop in heavy rain. All of you who have seen the movie, will know that the umbrella and leaf are very important props!

The set includes

  • O-Totoro, the big gray Totoro
  • Chu-Totoro, the blue midsized Totoro
  • Chibi-Totoro, the small white Totoro
  • A leaf
  • An umbrella
  • A camphor tree

The set has a total of 82 pieces, most of the pieces are used for building up the camphor tree.

I designed this set because I love the movie and the Totoro characters. As a challenge I have tried to keep the number of pieces to a minimum, but still have characters you can recognize. The idea came to me when we were on holiday and had a tiny amount of Lego bricks around, and one of my children built a small Totoro using just a few bricks.

I also like the idea of having a Lego set that almost everyone can afford to buy, due to the small amount of pieces. And it is easily displayed due to its size. And cute!
