How did the LEGO Red Telephone Box become an iconic set overnight?

The LEGO Red Telephone Box has been insanely popular from the moment it was released in February 2024. Designed by John Cramp, the set was inspired by his interest in history and culture and a love for the bright red telephone boxes that have become an iconic symbol of Great Britain.

 

 

So what makes the Red London Telephone Box LEGO set a timeless classic?

The set features a replica of the iconic red telephone box, which is closely associated with London and British culture. Its recognisable design appeals to both LEGO enthusiasts and fans of British culture.

The set is based on the BT telephone box which is turning 100 years old in 2024.  There are only around 200 left which have been protected with Grade II listings by English Heritage. 

To mark K2 reaching triple figures, LEGO® have released a 1460 piece detailed model. It’s set in a London street complete with cobblestones, lamppost, hanging baskets, a flowerpot and a fence with a London style street sign.

Despite being a relatively small set, it offers a high level of detail and realism, capturing the essence of the real telephone boxes.

 

Once built, the LEGO set makes for an eye-catching display piece anyone would be proud to have in their home. Whether you decide to place it on a shelf or a desk, your set is best presented and protected with our display case. Designed to compliment the London scenery and made specifically for set 21347, our cases are the stand out choice.
