LEGO Ideas Activity asks fans to build a fairy tale castle

Once upon a time, a LEGO Ideas Activity asked fans to build a fairy tale castle on an 8×8 baseplate.

The latest LEGO Ideas Activity is delving into a storybook world, asking fans to take an 8×8 baseplate and build a fairy tale castle on it.

Here is the official explanation of what the Activity is, which can be found on the same page where submissions should be uploaded:

Once upon a time… there was a 8×8 baseplate. Now can you build your favourite fairy tale castle on this limited ground?!

This is part of a series on LEGO Ideas that gives little tasks for builders to get involved with – there are no prizes, they are just a way to get involved with building something quick for fun. Each challenge is intended to be something quick and fun, unlike the more in-depth building required for a competition or product idea.

The deadline for this Activity is February 18 at 10.00am CEST.
