    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    Yes! I think this is right and the lesson Lego seems unwilling to learn is that the price tag for in house Lego digital content that people are willing to pay is basically zero. The other day there was a survey on Lego.com about what was essentially a paid social media platform TLG must be about to launch- digital/ screens seem like this white whale that Lego canโ€™t resist trying to hunt. let other platforms whose expertise is digital be digital and stay in your buildable, screen free lane. Partner with orgs who do it better if you must but most people enjoy Lego for what it already is. I loved Vidiyo for how weird it was- I didnโ€™t let my kids really interact with the app because that isnโ€™t what Lego is in this house. Our Lego town smoothie shop is staffed by a Vidiyo dragon mini fig though, which is actually representative of TLGโ€™s core mission statement. I will pay $$$ for sets but invest zero time or cash in digital platforms out of brand loyalty.

    That squrriel is hecking cute! I know Friends sets aren't everyone's favorite on this thread but 41707 has a bee, lady bug and butterfly. Love that all three are included in a garden set!

    Lego DOTS 2021

    Was able to pick up the Leopard Bag Tag and Panda Bag Tag at Target- truly so cute! Will be curious to see if the soft lip around the cubes helps prevent tiles from going missing. I really love this theme!

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    Ellie V posted a review of Vidiyo and my kids were DELIGHTED by the theme. I had a hunch they would like the idea. The app looks like it has potential but it also seems like it has a lot of kinks to work out. I suppose one must wait until March 1 to fully judge its functionality. My kids don't really have devices of their own except for an OLD borrowed Ipad that I am certain will not support this app. That all said, the beat boxes still feel like they should be $15.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    My daughter as a toddler was so afraid of the Dobby at our library that I had to shield her eyes every time we entered or exited the kid section. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Now she is obsessed and would also go for a buildable Dobby.

    Disney Properties 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    ๐Ÿ™„... As if this is all political theatre. Disney was doubling down on streaming and realligning their entire corporate structure regardless of the current public health crisis anyway. The pandemic certainly sped up the timeline but releasing direct to consumer leapfrogging theatrical release via Disney+ was plan A. I doubt direct to streaming will affect distribution of products related to movies released- pandemic related supply chain disruptions is more likely. Here is to hoping the long term effect is less branded disposable merchandise with the release of films in favor of quality, well thought out toys like Lego. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    The Cinema features a movie poster that looks like the "movie," is set in space. Maybe an Easter egg? I could see a cute little subtheme set in space- maybe instead of animals in need of rescue they find little aliens in need of assistance!

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I would LOVE an honest to goodness farm wave but wouldn't be surprised by an eventual Creator 3 and 1 set with a house/barn/ vehicle along with a smattering of brickbuilt animals instead. Feels like that is how TLG aiming to satisfy AFOL wish lists without full waves or new product lines. It is clear that police must test better with kids time and again but I still can't help but be surprised that farming isn't sort of an omnipresent theme within the City line based on my own children's play and toy preferences. Granted, I live in a heavily agricultural area and we are avid Lego animal seekers! General consensus here seems like the wildlife wave with likely be Safari. I'm excited either way but am kind of hoping this is another opportunity to get a deer. Perhaps a recolored HP otter?
