08.01.2020 by LadyAlly
Remember last year’s Lunar New Year themed LEGO set that was sold out in a blink of an eye? Well, this year, LEGO Malaysia has released 2 brand new Lunar New Year sets to the Asia-Pacific region, and to top it off, LEGO Malaysia launches a LEGO Lunar New Year Event!
The LEGO Lunar New Year Event will be held at Mid Valley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur, as well as at The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey in Johor Bahru from 5 January – 2 February 2020. This is the first-ever large-scale LEGO Chinese New Year event in Malaysia!
This event takes up all of Mid Valley Megamall centre court, and the centre court of The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey. You can expect a whole lot of LEGO building activities and engagements that is not just limited to children.
LEGO Lunar New Year Event Activities
Rat Building Competition
Team up with friends or family members to see who can build a LEGO Rat set the fastest. There will be weekly winners and one grand prize winner. The prize? LEGO sets worth RM1000!
Drum Up The Lion
Children will have to build the LEGO Traditional Drum and use it to wake a sleeping lion that is shown on a screen. You will then get to redeem a ‘wishing card’ to make a wish for the LEGO set of your dreams.
Creative LEGO shadow Play
Children are free to build anything or build pre-determined sets and showcase them on a screen accentuated by light to allow them to tell their own shadow puppet story.
Give the Gift of Play
If you have redeemed a wishing card, you can now hang it on the ‘LEGO Wishing Wall’. Five lucky winners will be selected to win their favourite LEGO sets.
You will need to register to be able to redeem a wishing card based on your zodiac. You can then jot down your wishes for 2020 and the LEGO crew will hang it on the wishing tree.
