That's right, folks. The 3,281 piece Lego haunted house is set to be released on 20th May – just under a week from today – and given that the government's advice is still to stay at home as much as possible, we think it's pretty perfect timing. 

The latest addition to Lego's fairground range, this is the first haunted house Lego have released since 2012. So, if you're a lego collector, or simply enjoy putting together the quirkier kits, you're in for a treat with this one.

Discover everything we know about the Lego haunted house below, or check out our lego sale page for more ways to keep yourself – and your kids – occupied over the coming weeks. You need to be a Lego VIP to get it next week, but other fans will be able to buy it on 1st June. Let the fun ensue.

As you might expect from a lego set with an incredible 3,281 pieces, Lego's haunted house is a pretty impressive size. By which we mean 68cm high, 25cm wide and 25cm deep. And you can open it up to take a look inside, which is the bit that we're especially excited about.

So, you'll certainly be paying a pretty hefty price for this kit, but it does offer pretty much everything we could wish for in a lego haunted house.

Our favourite features include a free falling ride and automatic doors at the top of the tower, both of which give it that fairground feel that we're after. These will require Lego powered up components, which are more than worth the additional cost if you want to experience the kit in all its glory.
