LEGO Fun for Kiddos : NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO Continues!

Because we’re great fans of LEGO, we’re loving all the LEGO fairs and fun events popping up almost everywhere. For almost the entire month of June, The Atrium at Raffles City was having a LEGO promotion event, which ended as soon as School reopened. What was additional fun was the special activities focussed at promoting the Ninjago range of LEGO.

We were away for most of June but managed to steal a chance to participate on the last weekend of the event.

We’ve all done the build and bring home your LEGO creation at Toys R Us and various locations but this time, the Ninjago Battle Dojo activities organised had no take-home but proofed to be equally fun for the kids- boys especially.

 About Ninjago Battle Dojo

Unlike the other build and take home LEGO activities, kids really need to be old enough to independently build on their own, this planned activity is a relay style game that both the really young and the slightly older can have their fair share of fun playing, with little or no Adult (Parent) supervision required.

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

Registration is required in order to receive a game card for the participants to receive a stamp for each of the 5 stages completed. After full completion, the kids receive a certificate.

Stage 1 Home: NINJA Base Camp – Build a LEGO NINJAGO KAI

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

Sounds exciting enough, WOW! Build Kai from scratch!!??! But wait, no! Actually, the kids were only required to build a simple replica of Kai’s Foot as shown below.

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

Participants are given loose bricks for them to model after a sample of Kai’s foot. There are no instructions given but the sample is easy enough to follow. Fast and easy! Of course, they also did have on display the full instructions to building Kai with loose bricks.

All set to build LEGO! YAY!

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

Easy does it!

Stage 2 RED NINJA ZONE: Conquer the Balance Beam Obstacle

This is definitely easy for older kids but I like that this simple activity allows really young ones to play as well without feeling left out when older siblings take part.

There’s something about relay games… kids just love it!

Stage 3 Blue NINJA ZONE : Build a Character

Wey probably enjoyed this stage the most, besides the Final Battle. Here, participants were asked to use LEGO bricks to form a Chinese Word, 敬 , given in a sample board.

Getting ready to form the special “Respect” Chinese character!

Again loose bricks, no instructions but pretty cool idea for homeschool sessions I think! Yay!

Happy and satisfied that he did it! hahaa…

Stage 4 White NINJA ZONE : Conquer the Tunnel of Terror

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

The little one had fun doing this very simple tunnel crawl plus the game station master was also very kid oriented and friendly, making it doubly fun. Again, this is very suitable and manageable for really young ones as well.

Ready Set GO!

There’s just something about relay play that kids love. I have super fond memories of Primary School days when we had so much fun with simple beanbag, hula hoop and ball relay games!

The Happy Tunnel Crawler! LOL@

Stage 5 The Final Battle : Battle with Morro

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJOYes, the Final Battle! Wey got to play with this spinning flying top-like LEGO NINJAGO toy and absolutely loved it, even though he wasn’t quite good at it. The aim was to see how high the spinner would fly in the Wind Tunnel, the higher the better. Everyone loves a chance to play with a toy that mummy hasn’t bought (or rather won’t buy)… hehe… it was a good chance to trial and check out the fun + worth value of the toy!

Checking out the spinning toy and how to play it πŸ™‚

The little one was very proud to complete all the activities and eventually receive that all important certificate. Simple joys! Savour them while they last hahaha… I am! He studied his certified completed game card very intently as he waited to receive his ‘certificate’ of completion!

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

Studying his completed game card intently! You can tell it’s serious work! LOL!

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

Got it!

I do wish that the certificates were given out with as much enthusiasm as the young ones receiving them. Maybe the Game Station Masters were all tired of being there everyday facing so many children for almost a whole month and very few of them seemed to be ‘into’ children. 😦 Most just treated it like almost a chore, stamping on the game cards without a smile or encouragement to the young ones, other than the nice young man at The Tunnel of Terror. Even so, we still had our share of fun plus it’s free, so better not complain! hahah!

Meet and Greet!

One of the main highlights was to meet Kai (I assume the hero of Ninjago, since I am not a fan of the Ninjago LEGO range) and to have a photo taken with him. The little one, who has always secretly admired and yearned for Ninjago sets, was thrilled obviously. You can tell from the photos! LOL!

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

Always a thrill to meet a LEGO character! What more with a Ninja!

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

So full of action! Wonder who taught him how to hold them swords!

If you missed the chance to let your young ones take part in the above activities, fret not! There’s yet another opportunity to play the NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO challenge, this time at Plaza Singapura Main Atrium from June 29th until July 12th!

LEGO NINJAGO BATTLE DOJO

So get set for the weekends and head on over for some free and fun LEGO activities!
