Rebuilding Memories with LEGO

With Singapore celebrating its 50th year in a couple of days, we at The Loving Mum played a little part in rebuilding memory with LEGO last weekend at Raffles City where LEGO Certified Professional, Nicholas Foo completed a giant 8.5 foot version of our favorite Dragon Playground.

Since June this year, LEGO has been celebrating and commemorating SG50 with their limited edition Singapore Icons Mini Builds which include The Cable Car, Ice Cream Bike, HDB Flat and the Dragon Playground. All of which are fully redeemed. Well, these limited editions mini builds were flying off so fast so furious I didn't even manage to grab any with our recent LEGO purchase.

If you have missed the chance to redeem and build your own mini Singapore icons too, you can still do so with your own LEGO pieces! These LEGO build instructions are floating somewhere online, if you find hard enough, you'll surely get them. Like the one I found in a group on Facebook.

If you are Dragon or heritage spotting this year because "Everything also SG50", hopefully you managed to head down to Raffles City, Level 3 to snap some photos with the giant LEGO Dragon Playground before it was broken down into LEGO bricks after 31 July 2015. If you did got a shot with it, don't forget to tag it with #LEGORebuildSG!

And here are some photos of our little contributing role to building the giant LEGO Dragon Playground at Raffles City.

In addition the launch of the extremely exclusive mini builds, LEGO has also launched LEGO SG50 Mega MiniFigures. With only 50 pieces available, these Mega MiniFigures are extremely coveted. To stand a chance to win one of these mini builds, you can spend a minimum of SGD 100 on Lego Toy(s) in a single receipt from 5- 31 August 2015 at participating outlets to be one of the lucky ones to receive a LEGO SG50 Mega MiniFigure. The LEGO SG50 MiniFigure is:


  • Limited edition to commemorate SG50, and there are only 50 pieces available

  • The 'Mega' size, stands at 31cm tall

  • Back of mini figure comes with a unique serial number and birthday message to celebrate SG50



I saw the below picture on geekculture.co, not sure if this is the real deal. If so, I would be quite sad, shouldn't a Mega MiniFigure be a MEGA MiniFigure instead of a LEGO brick built one?
