For those of you in the U.S., LEGO has offered another building event for adults only. It happened on the evening of February 15th. I signed up sometime in January and it appears that there was a limit of roughly 40 per store (it appeared to be that way at the store I went to). We'll take a look at the Candy Box that was offered for the event.
I was offered the option of taking the pieces with me or building in store. The base is built first and has an attractive gold lining thanks to gold jumper plates and 1x1 gold plates. Perched on each plate or jumper is a different kind of chocolate as you would find in an assorted box of chocolates.
The lid of the box is decorated with a white ribbon with a fancy bow (thanks to two feather pieces) as well as a gold star.
Thanks to a couple 1x1 plates on the top layer of the box the lid is able to be fixed on the top.
All in all, it was a nice reason to stop by the LEGO store. Thanks to the timing of different promotions, that meant I had a reason to visit either LEGO.com or a LEGO store for three consecutive days: the flower promo on February 14, the adult building event on February 15, and the Year of the Dog promo on February 16.
Well played, LEGO, well played.
