LEGO Chinese New Year 2022 Series

I love the LEGO Chinese New Year limited edition series. They are an excellent way to teach kids about culture and festivities and they make great decorative pieces for your home during the Chinese New Year. I first came across the LEGO 80101 Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner set and fell totally in love with it. It is so adorable and very relatable. There was also the LEGO 80104 Lion Dance set which is very nice to use as a Chinese New Year decoration center piece. That set me up to be very excited to find out what is the LEGO new release for Chinese New Year 2022 which is just around the corner.

Below are the LEGO Chinese New Year 2022 series. The series was very nicely reviewed by  Ashnflash, a very nice channel for Lego fans and lovers, which does daily LEGO videos and content. 

1. Lego 80108 Lunar New Year Traditions (CNY Series)

The LEGO Lunar New Year Traditions is for ages 8 and up. Of course with LEGO fans, the "and up" can be any adult age. It features 8 festive activities scenes including shopping for food, spring cleaning and decorating the house for Chinese New Year, visiting family during CNY and exchanging Angpows. Scenes which all Chinese celebrating the Lunar New Year will be very familiar with. 

Now the fun part about this set is each scene comes with separate building instructions so the whole family can play together, with each person or team building a different part or module, definitely a perfect activity during Chinese New Year! The modules can then be arranged together to create a unique display.  You can arrange them in a circle or upwards in a vertical display. It is made up of 12 LEGO mini figures  including the God of Wealth figurine and a family of 6 people - grandpa, grandma, father, mother, son and daughter, very nice for kids to role play after building. In keeping with the times, the kids have digital gadgets like smartphones. As for the parents who are busy with the housecleaning, is that a coloured feather duster I spot there? Very cute.

2. Lego 80109 Lunar New Year Ice Festival (CNY Series)

The Lunar New Year Ice Festival set is suitable for ages 8 and up. It features a very detailed winter scene with a frozen lake, equipment rental shop, sweet potato vendor's cart, photo booth, spring festival ice sculpture, vending machine, penguin-shaped sled, ski slope, snow capped trees and more. This could be used to teach kids about how cold countries celebrate their Chinese New Year. 

This set features 13 LEGO mini figures including a person in a tiger outfit to mark the year of the tiger in 2022. Other accessories included are smart phone, ice-skates, hockey puck, penguin ice sculpture and ice-sculpting tools.

Just like any other LEGO sets, it can be played individually or as a team with other members of the family with lots of role playing opportunity for kids and adults who love LEGO. Great to add to your LEGO collection display.
