This year marks the 100th anniversary of Disney, and to celebrate, LEGO has created a new 4,837-piece LEGO | Disney Castle set, as well as four giant murals in London, Manchester, Paris and New York City.

The murals were created by artists Lakwena Maciver, Amy Jones and Kristin Texeira, and each one features some of Disney's most iconic and much-loved characters from the last century, including Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, Ariel, Woody and Buzz Lightyear. What makes these murals particularly special? Families can build them with LEGO bricks. The Manchester and Paris murals have already been made, with the final New York mural to be created 28-30 July at Pier 17, Seaport.
