This week’s LEGO Ideas activity celebrates the Lunar New Year

The Lunar New Year celebrations get underway this week, and the LEGO Ideas team is celebrating with a new activity for eager builders.

The LEGO Group and Chinese New Year have been intertwined for years now, through both seasonal brick-built animal sets (like 2021’s 40417 Year of the Ox) and Chinese Traditional Festival sets like 80106 Story of Nian and 80107 Spring Lantern Festival.

This year sees the LEGO Ideas team getting in on the fun, with the latest activity asking builders to assemble the essence of Lunar New Year. “Whether it’s dragons dancing, lanterns, fireworks or dumplings and rice balls, we want to see the first thing that comes to mind,” the activity page explains.

You’ve got until February 15 at 9am UK time to submit your build. You can see all the entries so far over on the relevant activity page – but remember, there are no prizes for the platform’s weekly activities. Instead, they’re all about getting hands-on with your bricks just for the fun of it.

Last week’s LEGO Ideas activity encouraged mini medieval builds to celebrate the release of 21325 Medieval Blacksmith. You can check out the results of that activity here.

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.
