To get ready for Easter, LEGO is offering two new freebies starting today. In addition, LEGO also opened a special, Easter Basket section of the Online LEGO Shop, with some Easter gift ideas. We will look at all these new offerings below.
From now until April 13th, you can get a #30550 LEGO Easter Bunny with purchases of $30 or more. The set features a cute yellow and white brick-built Easter bunny with a lime-green and yellow Easter egg. This is a small polybag set with 67 pieces, and it could make a nice little surprise during an Easter egg hunt. The offer is valid at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
The second Easter-related freebie is a much larger set in a standard cardboard box and with the red Limited Edition logo. The #40371 LEGO Customizable Easter Egg comes with 239 pieces, and is free with purchases of $50 or more at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
The brick-built light-orange, white, and lime-green egg has three stackable sections that come apart to reveal quite a few surprises. The bottom section is filled with 1×1 tiles and plates in a rainbow of colors and several shapes to decorate the outside of the egg. And the middle and top section hides an adorable brick-built chick.
I like the interactivity of this set and how it encourages creativity and customization. Just like the Easter Bunny, it could be incorporated into Easter Egg hunt activities, including hiding, finding, and building the egg, decorating the outside of the egg in various ways with the included pieces, adding more decorative pieces from your own collection, hiding other items inside the egg, and using the set as a template to build more Easter eggs in various colors. This offer is also valid until April 13th at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
Please note that if you make a purchase of $50 or more, you will get both the #30550 LEGO Easter Bunny, and the #40371 LEGO Customizable Easter Egg. Both of these offers are valid at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
How to meet the $30 or $50 limit? You might already have your own wish-list ready to go, but if you don’t LEGO is making some suggestions in the Easter Gift Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop. They specifically recommend LEGO DOTS, the LEGO Disney Storybook Adventures sets, the new LEGO Trolls World Tour sets, and other small to medium size sets that offer good playability without breaking the bank. And they also advertise the new #10271 LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500, which doesn’t have much connection to Easter besides being cute and light-yellow. We talked about this set before (see links at the end of this post), and you can find it at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
