LEGO Chinese New Year sets often include unique printed parts and stickers and 80108 Lunar New Year traditions is no exception.

Flat 2×4 tile
Bright red piece with text that reads ‘Bringing in wealth and treasures’.
Flat 1×4 tiles and 1×3 tile
One 1×4 tile has a ‘Jade Tiger welcoming the Spring with hundred businesses booming’ print, the other features the message, ‘Golden Ox leaving the year with thousand granaries full’ and the 1×3 tile’s text translates as, ‘Great Fortune in the Year of the Tiger’.
Flat 1×2 tile
There are eight of these red envelope pieces that feature ‘Good fortune’ printed on them.
8×8 round plate
This red piece has a Tiger head print on it and the messages, ‘Welcoming the new Spring with joy’ and ‘Reuniting the whole family’.
The tiger is holding the Chinese character for good fortune.
The text reads ‘Seafood’ and uses a stylised graphic of a fish.
The message says, ‘good fortune’, but it’s upside down and looks similar to the word, ‘arrive’. In traditional Chinese culture, people put this symbol upside down in their houses as a welcome blessing.
This is a Flour Figure, traditional Chinese folk art.
