New Toy Alert! LEGO DOTS Take the Craft Space by Storm with 2D Tiles and Kits! See it in in London now until 2 February 2020!

Dot your world with new LEGO® DOTS! Yes, I said, LEGOLEGO has now introduced to the world their brand new craft line that will inspire and engage children to live a more creative world. 

LEGO DOTS are available on March 1, 2020, in a variety of styles and ways to create. Since this is LEGO®, you already know that the possibilities for play are truly limitless. LEGO builders can now create 2D tile designs with LEGO DOTS to decorate their walls, create jewelry, and more! 

This exciting new line has already started to make waves in London, UK. From now until February 2, 2020, LEGO fans can visit the HOUSE OF DOTS at Coal Drops Yard and see an amazing art installation created by artist, Camille Walala, who says,

It’s a joy to create a fun space where kids and adults can spontaneously express their creativity, make something beautiful and show off who they are. HOUSE OF DOTS captures all the exuberance and playfulness that people know me for, with something extra special: the chance to let your imagination go wild and create your own work of art. Oh, and a slide.

Yes, she said a slide! Guests can view and participate in this amazing, historical installation and then exit via a 2.5 meter (8 feet) slide!

Sharing whimsical ways of turning LEGO DOTS into art, the end result is HOUSE OF DOTS, a place of fantasy comprised of five rooms spread throughout eight shipping containers. Each room is LEGO DOTS-filled where walls are literally dotted with LEGO DOTS 2D tile pieces, down to the floors to the rug, framed pieces, and even furniture are mixed with LEGO DOTS. 

Walala is known for mixing patterns, geometric shapes, and colors. She reminds me so much Keith Haring - she has mastered this look of simplicity yet there is so much going. I wish that I lived in London to see this art installation in person. Londoners can sign up via Eventbrite and see this master at her craft as she helps revolutionize the toy industry with LEGO. Guests are encouraged to play, to dance in the DISCO room, to create their own jewelry using LEGO DOTs, and much more!

Available in stores March 1, 2020, in the form of craft kits where you can create different things like a pencil holder or jewelry stand. Get extra pieces with booster bags with different tile colors and ways to create. Fill up the jewelry stand with the DOTS Wearables with different designs like Rainbow, Funky Animals, Dark Unicorn, and more!
