Lego Launches NASA Apollo Saturn V Rocket
  • Kids can fulfill their Astronaut Dreams with Lego's 3 Feet Tall Apollo Saturn V Rocket

Apparently, those kids who want to be astronauts when they grow up can turn for inspiration to Lego construction blocks.

Even today, the Saturn V remains the biggest and most potent symbol of classic space travel. NASA once used this superior rocket and this moment in history is captured by Lego in the form of its novel Apollo Saturn V model set. Find out how and when to buy the Lego NASA Apollo Saturn V rocket set.

This model is a meter in height and has moon landing equipment, a moon orbiter and even tiny astronauts concealed in the vessels of the rocket.

The set began its journey as a plan on paper submitted by a builder named “saabfun”. He quickly made it to the 10,000 votes goal from his fans. Ultimately, the rule-makers at the top gave the final stamp of approval to this idea.

The final version of the rocket looks a little different from saabfun’s idea on the drawing board though. This is because Lego wants to makes its products customer-friendly and does not want design flaws no matter how minor they may be.

The final version is still quite cool though and will be a solid investment for a kid who dreams of becoming a NASA astronaut one fine day in the future.

This model looks so cool when you place it on a large desk. The scale is approximately 1:110 and the Saturn V divides into three segments: S-IC, S-II and S-IVB. It also has three display stands. This allows the model to be laid out in a horizontal manner on a desk.

This is the same manner in which NASA keeps its Saturn V rocket in its display centers across the length and breadth of the United States. Within this rocket you will chance upon small versions of the Apollo Lunar Lander and the Command/Service Module. These allowed the astronauts to reach the moon and come back to the home planet.

The small human figures in their space suits represent Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin for those kids who prefer to play in a make-believe manner. This special set is available in all Lego stores starting from the 1st of June.

It will set parents back by $120 for the sake of their little tykes. The set has 1969 construction joinable blocks. This set comes after NASA’s Women set by Lego which is a celebration of space travel and scientific and cultural progress.

Lego is a toy known to increase intelligence in children to the nth degree. Such sets ought to come out in the future in order to inspire more kids to take up competitive and challenging jobs when they grow up to be adults.
