  4. Dear all, a very cool new LEGO House exclusive retail set is on the way. Please check out the details below, feel free to share and of course visit the LEGO House to buy it. In the midst of LEGO House stands one of the world’s most iconic LEGO models, at over 15m tall and packed full of details and surprises even the most avid LEGO enthusiast cannot fail to be impressed by the Tree of Creativity. The tree is constructed from 6.316.611 standard LEGO bricks and took 23.500 hours to assemble to create an incredible and unique LEGO model. And now a LEGO small scale model of this tree will be exclusively available at the LEGO Store in LEGO House, Billund. The LEGO model is a great reproduction of the giant tree. All the most iconic features have been resized into this retail model. The real LEGO enthusiast will know that the LEGO Group launched a Tree of Creativity model back in May 2017. That particular model was developed as the surprise gift for the participants of the LEGO Inside Tour. The product developed for Inside Tour only comes out in 175 individually numbered boxes. Senior designer Steen Sig Andersen who originally also designed the first model was asked to do a retail version for LEGO House. Steen Sig Andersen says:” The former Tree of Creativity box has proven to be an iconic model for the LEGO House and it makes a lot of sense to also offer a Tree of Creativity to the guests of LEGO House. But it was very important that the two models were not identical as we would not take away the originality from the Inside Tour guests in 2017” Steen Sig Andersen’s efforts resulted in a very nice retail version which is slightly smaller than the LEGO Inside Tour model. The model is exclusively available at LEGO House in Billund and the retail price is 599 DKK. The LEGO Inside Tour model is not for sale. A detailed comparison between the LEGO Inside Tour set and the retail version The Tree of Creativity: LIT Retail product Name LEGO® House Tree of Creativity LEGO® House Tree of Creativity Product number 4000024 4000026 Amount of boxes produces 175 10.000 Piece count 1008 837 Release date 1st of May 2017 1st of March 2018 Box size Length: 310 mm Width: 230 mm Depth: 72 mm Length: 382 mm Width: 262 mm Depth: 70,5 mm Packaging Custimized sleeves – five different ones Standard retail packaging Hight of built model 38 cm 35 cm Number of leaves 11 10 Number of minifigures 6 + baby 1 Uniquely decorated element Printed tile with space logo 0 Amount of mini builts on leaves 8 6 Base frame White with integrated bench Brown without bench LEGO Designer Steen Sig Andersen Steen Sig Andersen Available for sale No Yes – exclusively in LEGO House Price Not for sale 599 DKK LEGO House is a fantastic experience center, so amazing that it is hard to describe.

  5. The past Friday we could welcome over 40 happy AFOLs from 8 different countries to the Modular building themed AFOL evening at LEGO House. We had invited Are Heiseldal from Norway to host 4 interview sessions with LEGO Colleagues from Design, Engineering and Marketing as well as an hands on building session with Jamie Berard was organized. All AFOLs were invited to bring an owned designed floor for the Parisien Restaurant which we stacked to 2 quite high buildings. It was very entertaining, informative and fun evening for all involved. We plan to do more activities like that in the autumn.

  7. Dear all, first of all I wish you a Happy New Year! When LEGO® House announced its first Christmas party for AFOLs, it was actually with a bit of anxiety. One could not quite know if the event would carry - a Saturday evening late in December? - in Billund? - for international AFOLs? All doubt proved unfounded. The word of the event was quickly spread and in a few days the tickets were rapidly sold. So there we are. Saturday evening on the 16th December, 70 excited adult LEGO enthusiasts from 8 different countries went to Billund to hold their first Christmas party at LEGO House. After such a great event there is no doubt -a new tradition has been founded! Andres Lehmann from Zusammengebaut.com and Michael Friedrichs from Promobricks.de were among the participants and we have been permitted to publish their review of the event: http://zusammengebaut.com/gruss-aus-dem-lego-house-in-billund-40579/ and https://www.promobricks.de/afol-julefrokost-event-im-lego-house-in-billund-bericht-und-bilder/48919 as well as a report about the new 10260 Downtown Diner that was presented by the LEGO Designer at the Christmas Party http://zusammengebaut.com/lego-downtown-diner-10260-mike-psiaki-im-interview-40629/ The evening was a lot of fun for all participants as well as us as hosts and we are looking forward to the 2018 version of this activity. All the best, Astrid Mueller, Senior Event & Tour Manager in LEGO House and Jan Beyer, Community Manager LEGO System A/S

    Book around the LEGO House

    Dear all, my LEGO House colleagues informed me that there will be a very interesting book around the LEGO House available from now on. So I believe this could be very interesting for some of you. Feel free to share. Than Jan Building a Dream Author: LEGO House and e-types. Price: 249 DKK - The book can only be purchased at LEGO® House in Billund. Language: English. Edition: 2000 pcs. Idea development and construction of LEGO House has taken seven years. On 28 September 2017, a proud director, Jesper Vilstrup, finally opened the doors to Denmark's newest experience center together with the royal family and with the attention of world press. LEGO® House is a unique experience house located in the center of Billund – Home of the Brick. Here, LEGO fans of all ages can experience the magic of the LEGO universe and get the ultimate LEGO experience all year round. Both kids and adults meet a number of new LEGO experiences and a sea of LEGO bricks, where you can unleash your creativity. The heart of the 12.000 m2 LEGO House is the experience zones which consist of four colored play areas, a spectacular Masterpiece Gallery, where fans can exhibit their impressive creations and a History Collection, where guests experience the company's and LEGO brand's development over time. Building a Dream is built as a combined interview and photo book, which both tells the vision behind the house and through great photos shows the development of idea and building. Three people have been at the heart of the project: Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, 3rd generation LEGO owner, Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, chairman of LEGO Brand Group and Bjarke Ingels, international architect. Photos are taken by photographer Jens Honoré.
  9. I hope many of you join this cool competition! Check it out! What would you build from an endless supply of LEGO bricks? We’ve had entries ranging from a treehouse to a full size unicorn, and even a portal to a LEGO universe. Winners of the contest will get a full expense paid trip to the LEGO House and enjoy it all to themselves for a whole night. They will sleep in a dream LEGO bedroom under a giant LEGO waterfall and create their winning entry with the skillful support of the host, Jamie Berard, one of the finest Master Builders in the world and a true expert of the brick.

  11. Hi all, today we had around 600 AFOLs (including over 80 Ambassadors) from almost 40 different countries participating the LEGO House AFOL Opening - it was really a blast. It went really smooth and was an amazing experience for all AFOLs as well as the LEGO House Staff, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, Bali Padda, the DCE Leadership Team as well as all LCE team members present. We had all such a great time and I got plenty of very positive comments and saw plenty of very happy faces so it was a true mindblowing experience. Now most of the AFOLs and even some more (yes, you read right - there are over 700! registered participants) enjoy the Skærbæk Fan Weekend here in Denmark and will turn this into the most international AFOL driven event worldwide. So I wish us all here present a great weekend of LEGO brick fun and all others a great weekend and hope you are able to join in the future!
  12. Today we concluded our first week of team meeting (it is great to have Paul and Jacky in Billund) with participating in the AFOL test visit @ the LEGO House. Over 200 AFOLs from 8 different countries visited the LEGO House to give the staff an experience how AFOLs act and react as well as experience the LEGO House. It was a truely great activity and all sides were very happy and had a lot of fun. I am so excited to get to the AFOL opening in September with over 600 AFOLs - it will be so much fun! I hope to welcome many of you to the opening or in the time to come in the LEGO House - an exceptional LEGO Brand experience!
