Pretty bouquet for home/office display or for child's play. Simple build, simple beauty. Bravo Lego Designers! Recommend purchasing multiple sets for a more impressive arrangement. Another beautiful Lego set is Flower Bouquet; a must, if not for yourself, as a gift (modified double set included in second picture).

Recommendation: no 3.5 / 5 by Richard

I really like both of these small sets: simple, but effective constructions, some wonderful recolours in the tulip set, and relatively inexpensive. Perfect as a thoughtful gift.

As an entry level flower build, these are sure to get you wanting more. The colours are vibrant, especially in the bold red roses, and if your partner is a LEGO fan, they might enjoy them.

40461 Tulips was a bit too simple for my taste, and I would prefer a colour change for the flowers. Still, with 111 parts for £8.99 / €9.99 / $ 9.99 including a couple of useful recolours, while also bringing some other rare elements, it can still be an interesting in a low-budget package to pick up.

These sets present an affordable entry to the new botanical collection and look beautiful and realistic when placed in an attractive vase, although I don't think the two varieties display that well together. It's not normal to do so anyway, at least not in our house!

Recommendation: meh by Chris Doyle

These sets both offer a cost-effective way to add some flowers to your LEGO collection if the $50 US for the 10280 Flower Bouquet is out of your price range. Both are good representations of their real-world counterparts, and are pretty close in cost to what cut flowers will run you around holidays. Both sets have their minor flaws, but there aren't any major issues with either. They look nice, and are a fun way to sidestep allergies and hungry pets if you want a botanical display in your home.

Recommendation: meh by jaredhinton

Although the build is quick (and I mean really quick!) the end results look great, and I can't help but be in awe of the endless creativity found with LEGO. Taking car hoods and making petals! It's still not the kind of set that would end up on my wishlist, there's just not enough build, but for a small, impulse purchase (to get you to free shipping maybe?) these are a solid option. Playability is zero so it's not one for the kiddos, but if your significant other stops you from displaying LEGO, these might just get them to change their mind.

Recommendation: meh by Sébastien

If the LEGO Group is hoping to grow its adult market with these gateway models, then it's definitely going the right way about it. 40461 Tulips is a satisfyingly simple build, but the end result is aesthetically pleasing – and if you already own either of the other flower models from 2021, you're going to want to add this set to your collection.
