What It Is

Discover the lost world of Atlantis... by building it! LEGO's new Atlantis line features a variety of building sets that revolve around a team of underwater explorers who are searching for the sunken city of Atlantis. The sets involve models of futuristic submarines, giant sea monsters, and ancient ruin sites. This is the latest of the narrative-driven theme sets that LEGO has launched. The half-hour movie debuted on the Cartoon Network, and with an interactive Atlantis website at and themed building sets, there's plenty of ways for kids to immerse themselves in the action-packed and rich LEGO Atlantis story.

Most of the building sets, including Monster Crab Clash, Guardian of the Deep, Seabed Scavenger, Gateway of the Squid, and Neptune Carrier, involve the underwater explorers retrieving Atlantis treasure keys from the keys' sea monster guardians. There are five colored keys to find and collect-orange, blue, red, green, and yellow-one in each building set.

There are so many building sets-at a variety of price points-in the Atlantis line that will engage kids in creative, imaginative and adventurous play.
