LEGO Monkie Kid is the first ever LEGO theme to be inspired by a Chinese legend and is rooted firmly in the country’s culture and values.

Paying tribute to stories known and admired by so many children and parents in China and Asia, this latest LEGO play theme brings new life to the iconic 500-year-old fable and provides a common ground for children, parents and grandparents to build and play together.

The tale begins when an ordinary boy, Monkie Kid, finds Monkey King’s legendary staff and he becomes the chosen one. Together with his brave and loyal friends, Monkie Kid begins his quest to stop the Demon Bull King and his army of Bull Clones from taking over the city.

With a modern Chinese twist, LEGO Monkie Kid also celebrates bravery and friendship and lets children engage in great building experiences whilst helping them develop their imagination and creativity.
