The country’s first LEGO-certified store at KidZania Building in Bonifacio Global City opened its doors on Tuesday (May 12, 2015).

Children and AFOLs (or Adult Fans of LEGO) alike can now immerse themselves in a true brick experience. Apart from selling familiar LEGO sets, the store gives collectors and hobbyists easy access to bigger “UCS” (Ultimate Collector Series) sets such as Batman’s Tumbler, the Avengers S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, and the UCS Star Wars Tie Fighter.

For those who enjoy building MOCs (or My Own Creations), there is now a designated area for “Pick-a-Brick” where you can buy individual bricks and parts by weight at P679.75 for every 100 grams. Keychain brick accessories can also be engraved with your name for an additional fee of P100.

The store is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (All photos by Jayvee Fernandez)
