The world’s most popular construction toy has finally come to Asia. And I’m not saying that it has just been available in the market.  Malaysia has been so far the first country in the continent to hold this kind of international theme park.

So, for all those Lego junkies, immerse yourself at the photos below. 🙂

As you enter, you’ll be welcome by a big, spacious souvenir shop christened as The Big Store, it offers a wide selection of Legoland merchandise like toys, bags, DVDs and books. Just get your wallets ready because the prices are a bit costly. Beside the store is the Information Center, where in you can ask for a map to maximize your Lego experience.

Everything here coincides with the theme. Bounty of humongous lego-made animals emerges in every corner. Just like in our trip to Hello Kitty Town, we wouldn’t pass the chance to have our photo taken on these precious creations.

My favorite part is the Miniland.  It is a recreation of Asia’s famous landmarks made by Lego.  Every single detail was crafted in perfection. It’s like getting to see the whole of Southeast Asia in one setting.

Here are some of the detailed miniatures that took 3 years to build:

Since it’s Christmas season, they put up a  9-metre Christmas Tree, which is of course, made up of Lego and were bedecked with cute Christmas decors.

I admit I’ve been a Lego kid too, my mornings during my childhood years were usually spent building blocks with my sisters and my daddy. These theme park has relive those memories and I was more than glad they were able to conceive such a bright idea. It can be boring for some but I appreciate every attraction they have brought into existence.

In this modern world where tablets and mobile phones rule, kids nowadays prefers online games than those tangible toys. I have nothing against them and they can choose whatever they want to play with, but for me, I’m just thankful that I was born to the era where technology doesn’t really matter and get to experience the simplicity of life.
