The Savoy Hotel in London is, er, building up the holiday spirit with massive Christmas decorations made out of Legos. We’re not talking about the kid-sized cars or houses you used to make back in the day.

We’re talking about a life-sized dragon-shaped Christmas tree and motorcycle fit for Santa. Travel + Leisure reported the magical displays were also installed above the famous Savoy Court sign, as well as the Front Hall. There are 12 rebuilds in all, including a rocket ship-turned-castle; a tea-drinking lion and a family of trees hidden inside the great oak treehouse.

Better yet, guests can also build a decoration themselves, no matter how old they are. They’ll also be encouraged to share photos of their designs on social media channels with the hashtag #BuildToGive. It’s all for a good cause — for every decoration built and shared, LEGO will donate another to a child in need. They want to make sure that children in hospitals, group homes and underserved communities have toys to play with this holiday season.

As if this wasn’t heart-warming enough, it’s part of The LEGO Group’s “Rebuild the World” campaign. The partnership is meant to inspire people around the world to embrace their creativity and act like a kid from time to time. We could all use a little bit of that, don’t you think?

Rooms at the Savoy during the holidays start at $540 (£419) per night, and it’s a Fairmont-managed property, so technically part of AccorHotels. You can earn or redeem points Le Club AccorHotels points for your stay. Or, stop by if you’re planning just a quick visit to London.
