Two new LEGO sets, plus a DUPLO set, celebrating Chinese culture and legends have been revealed.
Next year will see the launch of two new LEGO sets, 80106 Story of Nian and 80107 Spring Lantern Festival, both of which have been developed for the Chinese market. There will also be a LEGO DUPLO set, Happy Childhood Moments.
Although the sets have been developed for China’s 2021 range, they will also be made available at LEGO.com globally.
Here is the official set information from the press release:
LEGO 80107 Spring Lantern Festival recreates the magical atmosphere of the festival which marks the end of the lunar new year celebrations. It features a brick-built Chinese garden with moon gates, pavilion, pond and bridge, a special ox lantern illuminated by a LEGO light brick as well as other must-have items during the festival like a rabbit lantern and a Tang Yuan rice ball.
LEGO 80106 Story of Nian invites children to learn the old story about Nian and celebrates the Chinese new year with LEGO bricks. It features a brick-built Chinese residence with traditional decorations, a snowy scene that is brought to life with a posable Nian creature, a snowman figure and six minifigures including grandpa, grandma, three children and a person in an ox costume to mark the Year of the Ox in 2021.
LEGO DUPLO Town Happy Childhood Moments taps into two critical moments of a toddlers’ life in China: Chinese New Year and kindergarten. It can support Chinese parents to teach their preschoolers about traditions of the lunar new year and key skills to prepare kindergarten life in a playful way. It is also the first LEGO DUPLO set that is customized for Chinese pre-school families.
“We are excited and proud of unveiling new products at the CIIE for the third year in a row,” says Paul Huang, Senior Vice President of the LEGO Group and General Manager of LEGO China. “All these novelties are rooted firmly with the Chinese culture and values, and provide a common ground for children and families to build and play together. By doing this, we can bring the LEGO play closer to the hearts of Chinese consumers and support the children with learning through play experiences.”
