Longing for those LEGO toys you’ve seen in Manila and abroad?
Well, the first Certified LEGO Store in Mindanao open its doors right here in Cagayan de Oro city at the Ayala Centrio Mall.
Fun, intuitive and simple, these are the hallmarks of toy design that made the LEGO bricks and mini figures the most beloved toys worldwide. A brainchild of carpenter Ole Kirk Kristiansen who introduced it in Denmark stores in 1932, the brand soon went global and it did not take long when it became a hit in the Philippines, earning a steadily growing following from children and those young at heart who use each LEGO piece to build toys and realities straight from their imagination.
Encapsulating the dream of its founder to “inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow”, the global toymaker continues to expand its presence in the Philippines market by opening LEGO’s 6th Certified Store in Centrio Mall, Cagayan de Oro City on April 1, 2017. A LEGO certified store offers the following unique features that inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow through creative free play and developing the imagination:
- Pick-a-Brick wall (PAB)– a custom-built fixture filled with LEGO bricks and elements where shoppers can hand-pick and select what they need to build something based on their own design and imagination.
- Fully assembled LEGO sets around the circumference of the store to inspire LEGO fans.
- An interactive play area to give children a “hands-on, minds-on” experience with LEGO bricks.
- Exclusive LEGO sets available
The store is the fifth in a series of stores that will open from Manila to Davao in the country under LEGO’s “Better With Every Brick” campaign. LEGO together with UNICEF Philippines, UN’s agency that supports children’s welfare, will work together to help build the first National Center for Children with Disabilities in PGH. A portion of sales with be donated for the Center’s construction. LEGO also issued a cheque worth Php 500,00 as part of the fundraising drive to raise money for the construction of the Centre.
“The LEGO brand goes beyond being one of the top global toymakers, we are a beloved builder of childhood fantasies. We aim to inspire and engage the world’s builder by injecting fun into play. This partnership with UNICEF Philippines resonates well with this dream to extend the opportunity to help more children by bringing the National Centre for Children with Disabilities to reality” said LEGO Executive
