Holiday traditions bond family and friends closer together. This holiday, The LEGO Group is introducing a series of live-streamed build-along workshops on YouTube to encourage parents and children to spend quality time as they build and rebuild. Alongside some of the best-selling favourites and magical Christmas novelties this year, there is a LEGO play experience for everyone with different interests to unbox and create new holidays traditions together.
To get you started, The LEGO Group has curated 10 popular LEGO sets across themes like LEGO CITY, LEGO Friends, and LEGO Ninjago to look out for!
For little builders who love real-world play, they can enjoy hours of imaginative role-playing fun with 41684 LEGO Friends Heartlake City Grand Hotel, a 3-storey set filled with creative details. From the piano bar and reception to en suite bedrooms and outdoor dining area, little builders can now recreate what it is like to stay or work in a ritzy hotel and story-tell based on their imaginations.

Learn to build and rebuild with LEGO sets
To encourage parents and children to spend quality time together to build and rebuild, The LEGO Group will be launching an exciting YouTube Live series called LEGO Playdate (Holiday edition) with weekly contests and giveaways in November and December. Spanning across Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, the series aims to bring fun and joy to families across the region.
Hosted by Singapore-based host-parent, Cordelia Daphne Low, the first episode will kick off on World Children’s Day, 20 November 2021. Over the span of six weeks, parents and children will be brought on a journey to explore topics such as Jobs & Aspirations, Simple Machines, Ninjas & Dragons, Books & Magic, Technology in Play, and Dreams Holidays through hands-on activities with LEGO bricks. Each session will also feature the unboxing of popular LEGO sets, complete with a play demonstration to illustrate the educational benefits of LEGO play.
Interested parents can mark their calendars for these six sessions which go live on 20 November, 27 November, 4 December, 11 December, 18 December, and 24 December at 2pm Malaysia time. Alternatively, stay tuned to LEGO and LEGO Certified Stores Facebook Pages and be sure to RSVP once the Facebook event page is live!
Build a Christmas centrepiece with friends and family this year
Lastly, The LEGO Group has revealed five Advent Calendars across favourite themes such as LEGO Friends, LEGO City, Star Wars, Marvel and Harry Potter, as well as the charming new 10293 LEGO Santa’s Visit set that offers new building experiences for the family to create a centrepiece display or countdown at home together.
The design centres on a cosy little house, where a family is busily getting ready for Santa’s arrival. Cards are collected from the mailbox; gifts have been wrapped, and treats have been put out in anticipation of the most exciting time of the year. Once the build is complete, all Santa needs to do is drop down the chimney to spread some Christmas cheer!
The set is also bursting with tiny details to be discovered, including Winter Village’s first illuminated Christmas Tree! Just press down on the top of the tree to trigger the light brick hidden inside. Other details include a fireplace with stockings, a chimney (with enough space for Santa to slide down through), a child’s bedroom, a detailed kitchen with decorated dinner table, milk and cookies to leave out for Santa, and a comfy chair for him to curl up in. The house is also decorated with boughs of holly and includes a snowy gate with a mailbox. At the back, a roof panel articulates outwards for easier access to the bedroom upstairs.
Rohan Mathur, Marketing Director, Southeast Asia at The LEGO Group:
“This holiday season, we want to encourage families to spend quality time and bond through the creation of new holiday traditions such as building our 10 popular LEGO sets and counting down to Christmas together. We also hope the build-along sessions can inspire parents and children to build and rebuild with LEGO sets, enabling children to ignite their creativity, imagine limitless possibilities and create something new each time. Happy holidays!”
