LEGO 40355 Year of the Rat available with UK Monkie Kid purchases

Fill your LEGO basket with enough Monkie Kid sets, and you’ll qualify for a free copy of 40355 Year of the Rat. Those are the terms behind the latest promotion at in the UK, which is hoping to pull in early adopters of the LEGO Group’s latest theme.

You’ll need to splash out on at least £80 worth of kit to bag the freebie. Considering the eye-watering prices of the Monkie Kid range, though, that shouldn’t be too difficult. In fact, four of the eight Monkie Kid sets will bring you above the minimum spend all on their own.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
