Experience Nostalgia and Creativity with the LEGO Typewriter

Transport yourself to a bygone era and celebrate the art of writing with the captivating LEGO Typewriter Set. This charming model pays homage to the classic typewriter used by the LEGO Group’s founder, Ole Kirk Kristiansen, and is designed to evoke feelings of nostalgia while igniting the curiosity of a new generation. Immerse yourself in the past as you build this exquisite LEGO Ideas model, complete with intricate details and functionalities that mimic the workings of a real typewriter. The center typebar elegantly rises with each key press, seamlessly connected to a moving carriage that glides across the keyboard. An authentic platen roller allows you to feed real paper into the brick-built typewriter for a truly immersive experience. The design is brought to life in the iconic mint green color reminiscent of 1950s-style typewriters, and every key is adorned with a printed character, eliminating the need for stickers. A groundbreaking feature of this set is the black and red ink spool ribbon, presented as a new fabric element. Designed by a dedicated LEGO fan and voted for by the LEGO community, this typewriter model includes a letter written by Thomas Kirk Kristiansen, a member of the LEGO Group’s owner family. As a cherished display piece, it beautifully captures the essence of simpler times and makes for an extraordinary gift for yourself, writers, LEGO enthusiasts, and lovers of vintage charm.
