LEGO DOTS encourages children to use 2D tiles and shapes to create a range of fun wearables and room décor. The bracelets are an affordable introduction to the product range and a perfect option for pocket money purchases.
The LEGO DOTS bracelet polybag contains everything you need to make one or two bracelets, and a bag of colorful tiles. There are no instructions – so you can either make your own design or start off by copying the pattern on the packaging.
If the pack contains two bracelets – each is one row wide, while the single bracelet packets are two rows wide. You may like to purchase a tiles pack to allow for more patterns.
The size of the bracelet is designed for children and is adjustable, so they may not fit an adult wrist. I can wear mine comfortably. There are a couple of spare tiles (10) in case you decide to wear yours all day and accidentally lose any.
The bracelet designs and blocks are gender neutral, although the packaging features predominantly girls. The black bracelet of the Cosmic Wonder is one of the most popular designs.
It’s best to cut the package at the bottom, as it’s easier to access the tiles this way.
Tip: If you own a dog or cat, you can combine two bracelets to make a cute temporary collar.

About LEGO DOTS
LEGO DOTS taps into the arts and crafts space by using a 2D tile-based play concept that offers children a creative canvas for self-expression. Based on multiple shapes and colourful tiles, it is supported by an exciting portfolio that ranges from wearables to room décor with surfaces designed for individual customisation and self-expression.
To excite young creatives even more, over thirty mood tiles are also being introduced, incl. facial expressions, music note, cosmic planet, star night, paw prints and a rainbow pooh – and many more.
When creating LEGO DOTS, LEGO designers were inspired by internal research showing that kids are increasingly looking to shape their creative confidence through more personalised forms of play where they can explore freely and express themselves through their own designs. This particular insight draws on a quantitative study conducted with 10,800 parents and 7,200 children across the US, China and Germany, and among the participants a total of 21,600 play observations were mapped out and used to identify the relevance and concept direction of DOTS.
The specific DOTS product development phase has since been further informed by monthly hands-on play sessions, biannual focus groups and quantitative tests across US, UK, Germany and Denmark with more than 500 parents and kids over two years, ensuring the design development aligns to consumer input.
The LEGO® DOTS wearable range includes:
- Cool Cactus
- Cosmic Wonder
- Dark Unicorn
- Funky Animals
- Go Team!
- Ice Cream Besties
- Love Birds
- Magic Forest
- Mermaid Vibes
- Sparkly Unicorn
- Bracelet Mega Pack (4 pastel bracelets)
