The stylin’ new Mega Bloks® Barbie® Build ‘n Play Glam Salon PREVIEW

I’m convinced that one of the best parts about the Mega Bloks® Barbie® line is that almost every figure in it comes with a different hairstyle. So with more sets, a girl has more variation in hairstyles that she can then mix and match for some trendy variations. Playing off that great feature comes the fab new Mega Bloks Barbie Build n’ Play Glam Salon set.

Barbie invites her friend Summer in a cool new style. Summer brings her Kitty along for the fun! They enter through the sparkly double doors and Summer sits down for a colour and trim in the real vanity mirror.

There’s space for a dryer chair, a funky lounge, a wash station, and a make-up station. Summer can have a seat upstairs in the funky mezzanine lounge to relax with a refreshing beverage. Girls who love to build can customize this fabulous two-level salon however they like. Make it different every time!

The 176-piece Build ‘n Style Glam Salon is packed with accessories for Barbie and Summer. Along with three interchangeable hairstyles, the set comes with two cute skirts and four hair bows that either girl can wear. Salon accessories include shampoo and conditioner, a brush, a hairdryer, a hand mirror, two shades of lipstick and two blush brushes. Your girl will spend hours helping Summer and Barbie look their cutest!

Another thing I think makes this set a fantastic addition to any Mega Bloks Barbie fan’s collection is that it comes with a brand new pair of legs in a seated pose! Perfect for Summer to relax as she gets styled, but also perfect for customizing any other Mega Bloks Barbie mini-fashion figure. For example, now Barbie in the Build ‘n Style Pool Party can relax poolside at her patio table!

This cute split-level salon will be a junior diva’s dream. This stylin’ set will be available this fall wherever Mega Bloks Barbie sets are sold. Like this set as much as we do? Let us know!

Mega Bloks Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are back! 20th Anniversary Set

Mega Bloks has been making Power Rangers sets since 2003 – exactly half the lifespan of the series itself! We’ve become superfans ourselves along the way. So there’s no chance that we’d let an epic anniversary like today pass us by.

As other fans of course know, today is the 20th anniversary of the series. On August 28, 1993, the first episode of the American series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers aired.

The show spawned a craze and twenty years later, Saban is still cranking out new seasons of its genre-defining series.

To celebrate our small part of the phenomenon, Mega Bloks has released a 20th Anniversary Set that finally puts the original six rangers in Mega Bloks form.

Although many Mega Bloks Power Rangers sets were styled in the older version of our figures, it’s awesome to see this throwback set shaped in the new, super-articulated style of the current Megaforce line.

The original team of Red, Blue, Black, Yellow, Pink, and Green Ranger come in their classic uniforms, ready to defeat the forces of evil led by Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd!

The black and gold stand that comes with this set is perfect for collectors to display the figures, and features a classic MMPR logo embossed in gold.

This set is a must-have for loyal fans of the 20-year series. It’s already hitting shelves at Toys R Us stores across North America. To our loyal Mega Bloks Power Rangers fans – happy 20th anniversary!

Pawtucket, R.I. – August 1, 2013 – Dr. Mayhem’s henchmen are invading and it’s up to builders nationwide to keep their city creations safe!  Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), in collaboration with Zynga® (NASDAQ: ZNGA), expands its popular KRE-O construction line with the introduction of the KRE-O CITYVILLE® INVASION collection, brick-based sets which turn ordinary cityscapes into madcap environments where builders’ imaginations can run as wild as Dr. Mayhem. In addition to mischievous new KREON figures including zombies, gorillas, and vampires, several of the KRE-O CITYVILLE INVASION sets include playful sounds and SONIC MOTION TECHNOLOGY, a unique new innovation to the construction category.

In each KRE-O CITYVILLE INVASION building set equipped with SONIC MOTION TECHNOLOGY, sound waves trigger specific movements in special KRE-O bricks creating a fun action scene filled with KREON figures spinning, shuffling, and swimming into action! Fans can watch as the helicopter included in the SKYSCRAPER MAYHEM set spins to life or AMY APEKEEPER chases after ZAPE the gorilla before he demolishes the city.

“The introduction of KRE-O CITYVILLE INVASION brings a wonderful diversity and playfulness to the construction aisle with its quirky backstory and technological advancements,’ said Kim Boyd, Senior Director Global Brand Marketing, Hasbro, Inc. ‘Together with Zynga, we’re thrilled to give building fans a whole new way to play, both online with the immersive CITYVILLE INVASION app and in physical form as SONIC MOTION TECHNOLOGY makes KRE-O brick-based creations come to life.”

The building fun continues digitally with the free ZYNGA KRE-O CITYVILLE INVASION app, developed with kids in mind and available now on the Apple Store or Google Play. As Commanding General of the CITYVILLE S.O.S (Special Operations Squad), players deploy KREON heroes to defend their city from Dr. Mayhem’s destruction. Special bonus defenses and new buildings to add to each in-game city are awarded to players as they advance in the game. All of the KRE-O CITYVILLE INVASION construction sets also include digital values to help enhance players’ online game play.

The LEGO Foundation opens school in Denmark

The International School of Billund is will introduce a focus on learning through play
The LEGO Foundation, the charity arm of The LEGO Group, has opened The International School of Billund in Denmark.

The school will follow the curriculum set by the Danish government but will also introduce a focus on learning through play.

The connection between the school and The LEGO Foundation means certain lessons will occasionally be taught by LEGO employees and classes may be used as a testing ground for new products.

The International School of Billund has been set up by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, grandson of LEGO founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen and it welcomed 75 students aged between three and seven for the first week of teaching.

In the future, the LEGO Foundation also hopes to collaborate with the school to learn more about child development and product development.

LEGO Simpsons 2014 Confirmed

We ran a story about LEGO Simpsons rumours back in March. Now it seems they've been confirmed, according to an article in Danish newspaper dr.dk today. This is a translation of the article, courtesy of Google:

"One of the most-loved, arch American families are now emerging as LEGO figures. These are the yellow cartoon family, The Simpsons.

There has long flourished rumours of an impending romance between 20th Century Fox Television, the production company behind the successful series, and LEGO, but only now being co confirmed.

We'll see Homer, Bart, Marge and the others next year, says Mads Nipper, marketing director with responsibility for product development, marketing and sales of LEGO.

The launch of the characters is a "small product news" in the beginning, but if the reception is strong enough, can quickly turn up the production.  It will be a small launch, but it will hopefully be fun and exciting for those who like the Simpsons universe, says Mads Nipper.
The target audience for The Simpsons are teenagers and adults, but there are also many children who know them, says product manager at Top Toy, Carsten Nielsen. He has seen the figures as they appear in the 2014 catalog, and he says that "they are really well made."
