We have just received an update from Singapore Brickfest organiser that the event (originally to be held from 6-7 June) will be postponed till 2021 in view of the growing risk from Covid-19. We wishes everyone best of health and below is the official statement:
The COVID-19 situation has evolved into a global pandemic. We have seen Singapore’s government stepping up on social distancing measures and advising ticketed events with more than 250 participation to be cancelled or postponed. On top of local travel restrictions and 14 days quarantine measures to limit the spread of the virus, we have many participating countries that rolled out even stricter measures.
While the show could still go on even under such harsh circumstances, as organisers we cannot in clear conscience continue on June 6 & 7 with the situation as serious as it is. With over 8 participating nations, more than 100 tables of exhibitors and over 2700sqm of exhibition space, the crowd size expected would not make this a safe and comfortable event with COVID-19. The important interaction between builders and the crowd would not be as dynamic, losing full interactive potential for MOC exhibitors.
While we regret that Singapore Brickfest 2020 will be postponed to 2021, we are also delighted to announce that the same sponsors and all our 50 volunteers have reaffirmed their commitment to 2021 already. The show must go on! The dates only changed!
In fact, Singapore Brickfest has deepened our commitment to engage the community while we wait out this situation and will be planning:
1) Increased community engagement to encourage LEGO® My Own Creation workshops
2) Smaller scale LEGO MOC gatherings
3) Online/offline contests to inspire budding builders
We are also gathering interest and surveying feasibility for a smaller scale year-end event for LEGO® fans in preparation for 2021. If you think you can contribute to Singapore Brickfest 2021 and the continued engagement of LEGO® fans in Singapore and Asia, please reach out to us! Meanwhile the Singapore Brickfest organising committee, volunteers and sponsors look forward to deliver a fantastic experience for builders and attendees in 2021!
A brand new theme has been unveiled by LEGO just for the girls! Available immediate at participating LEGO retail stores!
Below covers the official press release:
Singapore, 2 March 2020: Furthering their legacy of fun and creativity, LEGO® today announced the launch of their newest line of products in Singapore, LEGO® DOTS. Tapping into the wide world of arts and crafts, LEGO® DOTS is a 2D tile-based play concept that offers young girls aged from 6 years+ a chance to self-express and create through their new #DotYourWorld Campaign. Going beyond play, LEGO® sees their new range as a fundamental enabler to empowering young girls to take charge of their own self-expression and identity through dotting their world however they see fit.
DOT Your World: About the Collection
The exciting multi-shape and colourful tiles come in various forms, ranging from wearables to room décor, all changeable to express self-identity, fashion and creativity.
The affordable new collection features 5 bracelets; the Rainbow Bracelet (41900), Funky Animals Bracelet (41901), Sparkly Unicorn Bracelet (41902), Cosmic Wonder Bracelet (41903) and the Love Birds Bracelet (41912). The lively bracelets come with adjustable bands to fit the wrist and 32 colourful tiles to encourage girls to design their bracelet to suit their mood and style at that time. The versatility of the bracelets allows girls to find fun and unique ways to express their personalities and use their imagination to show their creativity.
Girls will love the Rainbow Jewellery Stand (41905), not only because they can display their jewellery and wearables on it, but they can customise their stand to make it uniquely theirs with the colourful tiles. The stand comes with a tray to keep other accessories in, allowing girls to be imaginative both with decorating the stand, and how they choose to display their jewellery.
The kit also includes the Animal Picture Holder (41904), which is perfect for fans of arts and crafts. The Animal Picture Holders are easy to assemble and customise with colourful tiles that can be used to design a variety of adorable animal faces (from cats and dogs, to lamas!). Kids can use the picture holders to display their different designs and photos, as well as keeping little treasures safe in the box.
The Pineapple Pencil Holder (41906) is a DIY set of boxes that offers kids the chance to create their own customisable pencil holder and watermelon wedge stationary box. The dynamic boxes encourage kids to use their imagination and creativity to personalise the boxes with the colourful tiles and make designs to reflect their individual style, mood and room. Stationary has never looked so good in with these functional designs!
The entire LEGO® DOTS Line is compatible with the Extra DOTS Series 1 – Refill Tiles Pack (41908). This refill pack encourages kids to personalise their designs further with 10 colourful tiles including 20 translucent blue glitter tiles and 10 special printed tiles. This additional pack provides the opportunity for kids to stretch their imagination, enhance their designs and come up with unique ways to show their self-expression.
When creating LEGO® DOTS, LEGO® designers were inspired by internal research showing that children are now increasingly looking to shape their creative confidence through more personalised forms of play where they can explore freely and express themselves through their own designs. This particular insight draws on a quantitative study conducted with 10,800 parents and 7,200 children across the US, China and Germany, and among the participants a total of 21,600 play observations were mapped out and used to identify the relevance and concept direction of DOTS.
Young girls in particular, have had limited options available on the market to build their own worlds through traditional construction toys and showcase their love of all things fashion, creativity, fun and play. The new range allows them to imagine their own world and dot it, limitless and instruction-free to see their visions come to life.
DOTS will be available from March 1, at LEGO® participating outlets in Singapore with prices starting from just $6.50 for the refill pack and $9.90 for each bracelet.
