John Lewis has released a video showing displays of their Christmas adverts of the last five years made entirely of Lego. 

The two companies have linked up to recreate the different iconic scenes from 2012-2016. 

Seven ‘expert Lego builders’ spent 116 hours to complete all five constructions, using 9,400 bricks in the process.

The video includes a timelapse of each creation, showing how they were made from the first Lego brick to the last.

It took 33 hours to complete the ‘Man on the Moon’ advert of 2015, which was the longest to make, while ‘The Bear and the Hare’ advert of 2013 used the most bricks at 2,400 pieces.

All five models will be on display at the Oxford Street branch of John Lewis for two weeks in the run-up to Christmas.

This video follows the release of this year’s Christmas advert, which features 'Buster the Boxer'.

The advert, which is estimated to have cost John Lewis £7m to make, centres around a dog waiting to bounce on the trampoline bought by his owners.

Twitter users had complained that this advert had ‘ruined Christmas’ as it showed the father of the family making the trampoline himself, without the help of Santa Claus.
