This doesn’t seem possible, but LEGO has never been able to tell us how to get to Sesame Street. The iconic kid’s show has never had its very own LEGO product—intil now. And it was worth the wait. The beautiful new 123 Sesame Street collection, along with its lineup of minifigures, is an opportunity to build a sunny day of the best kind of nostalgia.

LEGO’s new 123 Sesame Street set is the latest LEGO Ideas submission to make it store shelves. Designed by fan Ivan Guerrero, the collection uses 1,367 pieces to bring that legendary neighborhood to life. When complete it stands nine-inches high, 13.5-inches wide, and 8.2-inches deep.
It’s also full of authentic details and accessories, both inside and out, that will transport you back to being a kid.
It also comes with adorable minifigs for Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, and Big Bird, as well as Slimey the Worm, Dorothy the Goldfish, Radar the Teddy Bear, and Rubber Ducky figures.
The set also includes Elmo’s bedroom and Bert and Ernie’s apartment (with their famous portrait and Ernie’s bath). The Sesame Street corner also features Hooper’s Store, Big Bird’s nest, and Oscar the Grouch’s trash can.
“As a long-time fan of the LEGO Group and Sesame Street, it has been a dream come true to be able to merge my two passions into a memorable set for fellow builders to enjoy,” said Guerrero in a statement. “LEGO bricks and Sesame Street shaped both my childhood and adult years, and the opportunity to work with the LEGO Ideas team to bring this quintessential New York street to life has been thrilling.”
It’s also gorgeous. The colors and design of this set genuinely make us feel good in the way only Sesame Street can.
LEGO 123 Sesame Street ($119) will be available starting November 1. You can get yours at LEGO.com and LEGO Stores. However, because of all its small pieces, the set is not safe for kids. Oh no! Guess we’ll just have to play with this set ourselves. But that’s okay, we’ve waited a long time to do that.
