Market Friday Goes Legoland
24 February 2023
One day I was wandering in K11 Tsim Sha Tsui Hong Kong and stumbled upon the Legoland Discovery Center. Upon entering the door to the escalator, the giant Donut was the center of attraction with a height that almost reaches the top of the 2nd floor. Below the giant Donut was his playhouse. However, to enter the playhouse, one must pay a certain amount, so I didn't bother. Apart from the Donut playhouse, there are other themed play areas too in other parts of the Legoland Discovery Center.
As I walked through the entranceway, the architecture of the place was another attraction. There were lego structure displays in the exhibition area and they vary depending on the occasion. Since it was Chinese New Year when I visited the place, the displays were related to Chinese like the dancing tiger and lion lego. There was also a lego set of Hong Kong's bustling city with different vehicles on the road.
Adjacent to it was the Gift Shop. And from the name itself, you can tell what is inside. I never imagined Lego prices to be that expensive though. I was shocked upon seeing the prices of some items on display. There was a white house that cost HK$849 which is equivalent to more than a hundred US dollars. The iron man lego set was HK$4299 or more than US$500. Only the lego addict will purchase such items at those prices.
My favorite part was Pick & Build where you can build your own lego toys depending on the price you have paid. You can build mini figures or mini cars. I was interested to make my own, but when I saw the price, I backed out, lol. The small cup was HK$99 and the big one was HK$179. It was kind've expensive for me.
But seeing the smiles of the kids playing with lego toys, they worth priceless. Back when I was younger, I wanted to have a lego set of any kind but my parents can't afford to buy one for me 😅. Now I understand why, lol. There are different kinds of lego set perfect as gifts to kids on special occasions. Some adults even like building lego. So Lego is truly for all ages.

@jane1289, I sent you an $LOLZ on behalf of @idksamad78699
Haha.. Just to see them is fine
I have a similar Legoland in Vancouver Oakridge center I had done a quick tour of a few years ago. An amazing place for kids as my kids were growing out of build your toy concept. Expensive kits and the pay by the kilo alright. Customer experience is the premium we're paying for.
Is there a discovery center too? There are themed play areas too but I didn't go inside as i need to.pay haha
It's more of a store front than a roomy discovery center therefore smaller footprint. The place is located in an affluent area and the local parents may tend to make Legoland a handy place to leave grandpa and the kids there while shopping.
I'm not sure if it's still operating since the pandemic.
Haha.. Why do grandparents become babysitters? 😂. I usually see that scene here.
I remember playing and putting Legos together when I was younger. I think they were between $5 -$15 the few sets I got. Back some time in the 1980's.
I have a coworker that collects military memorabilia in the form of Legos. Primarily tanks and has gotten into ships. They are of good size and he talks about the time it takes to put together. Has them all displayed on a shelf at work The cost of them are a couple hundred dollars piece. He's a bit odd so the money he spends is probably well spent, haha.
Maybe he could gift those to others haha
The more he puts his attention into his obsession the better for all of us. Every have that person who is odd who tries to make a conversation with anybody? Well he's that person. He brings things up where you scratch your head and say who says that? Haha. Don't take his toys away 🤣😂🤣
Wth... He has his own world 😂..
Haha a good way to describe him. Laters:)
ahhh Harry and Hermione are sooo cute
Cute din ng price haha
awts yun lang haha
When I was a kid, I also wanted lego! I like the building stuff. But yes, sadly it’s out of budget even til now. It’s an expensive hobby 😄

Legos have always been expensive toys. But they are so much fun. Seeing your posts has made me a little nostalgic for when I used to assemble legos with my son ;)
To be honest, I never played lego 😂...
I never experienced having a Lego since when I'm still a kid, because my parents cannot afford to buy me such an expensive toys like that. 🤗
This place is a paradise for Lego fans haha
Haha kya nga..
Lego Discovery is a pretty cool place. Legos have always been expensive, as long as I can remember. I can remember buying them and wondering how such little pieces cost. I see more adults using them than kids nowadays. Kids are too busy with their gadgets and hand helds to play with mere toys!
Thank goodness for adults to save the Lego industry!
