LEGO releases another spectacular set with a Lunar New Year theme.
The toy giant had previously unveiled a double decoration box filled with symbols and mementos of the upcoming holiday, which will be held on Sunday, January 22, 2023 to celebrate the start of a new lunar cycle.
LEGO’s Lunar New Year Parade set is a perfect addition to the interconnected Modular Buildings collection, as you can organize a festive parade that travels through the LEGO city.

Intended for ages 8 and up, this 1,653-piece set includes three floats: one celebrating music, another featuring the dragon, and a third celebrating the Year of the Rabbit.
Kids can role-play their own Lunar New Year stories with the 18 minifigures in this set, including standard bearers, musicians, a mini white rabbit and a variety of dancers. Others include a pirate, an astronaut, a knight and LEGO’s signature Monkie Kid.
Each float has an interactive function, so you can, for example, press the music float to have the drummer play along with the procession. The dragon can also move automatically at the touch of a button.

In the US, you can pre-order the floats for $129.99, but you’ll just have to wait a bit longer as the release date is set for January 10, 2023.
