#CNY2020: Grab LEGO Lunar New Year Themed Sets at Its Mega Event, Starts Jan 5

LEGO Malaysia, who recently released two brand new Lunar New Year (LNY) themed sets to the Asia-Pacific region, is ushering the Lunar New Year (LNY) with the first-ever large-scale LEGO Chinese New Year event, which will be held at Mid Valley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur and The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey in Johor Bahru from 5th January to 2nd February 2020.

The event, which takes up all of Mid Valley Megamall centre court and the centre court at The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey, has a slew of LEGO building activities and engagements guaranteed to bring joy to all ages.

  • Drum Up the Lion: Children will have to build the LEGO Traditional Drum and use it to wake the sleeping lion on the screen. Participants will get to redeem a ‘wishing card’ to make a wish for their desired LEGO set.
  • Creative LEGO Shadow Play: Children to free build anything or build pre-determined sets and showcase them on a screen accentuated by light. This allows them to tell their own shadow puppet story.
