Rare Asia-exclusive LEGO GWP rumoured for June

A rare LEGO gift-with-purchase previously only available in China and South Korea may be coming to worldwide markets in June.

Promobricks reports that 6374338 Happy Children’s Day 2021 (potentially also named Swing Ship Ride) will be available for LEGO VIP members from June 21 to 30, with a spend of €85 (so presumably £85 / $85) across any and all LEGO sets.

The 152-piece yellow-boxed model was originally available as a gift-with-purchase through LEGO.com in South Korea, and with a minimum spend at LEGO Stores in China – where production was also limited to just 1,000 sets. That number will obviously be ramped up if the model truly is coming to international markets in June, potentially knocking down the aftermarket price in the process.

According to Time2Bricks, however, there are actually two different versions of the model, distinguished by their 2×4 tile. One reads ‘Happy Children’s Day 2021’, while the other displays the LEGO motto, ‘Leg Godt’ (meaning ‘play well’). It’s not yet clear which of these will be coming in June, but the latter seems more likely given the timing.

That’s because while certain communist (and post-communist) countries – including Bulgaria, Croatia, Vietnam and China – celebrate International Children’s Day on June 1, plenty of the LEGO Group’s major markets (including the UK, US, Denmark and Canada) actually celebrate the occasion on November 20.

We’ll bring you confirmation on which variety of 6374338 swings into LEGO Stores and on to LEGO.com as soon as we can – if any do, that is, because this is still just a rumour for now. Stay tuned.

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.
