Yay, Lego! Yes, that’s the voice in my head screaming in excitement. When I saw the Lego Nexo Knights display set-up at the Centre Court in MidValley, I just knew I have to bring my son as soon as the school holiday starts.
The Lego® Nexo Knights is the latest and newest product line from Lego Malaysia. My son first knew about this new LEGO® line through Cartoon Network and he loves it. He even records the shows from Astro and watches them after school or after doing his homework. Children and adults alike can easily be captivated by the story as this combines a futuristic, high-tech world with the classical theme of knighthood where there are heroic knights, a kingdom, princess, king, queen and, of course, an evil army to conquer.
Making this school holiday even more exciting for children, Lego® has brought the Nexo Knights experience to life at MidValley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur. As someone who resides in this beautiful country, I’m proud to say that Malaysia was the first to host the Lego Nexo Knights event in Southeast Asia!
This is the perfect time to bring the kids to MidValley and allow them to explore various activities by Lego Nexo Knights. From now until 20th March 2016, every day is packed with a “training schedule” where our children can have a fun time undergoing the Knight training process. These activities are free for you and your kids to experience.
Here’s the Weekday Training Schedule:
Love taking photos? Lego will print your Instagram photo for free! Just share a picture of your Lego Nexo Knights experience and add the hashtag #LEGONEXOKNIGHTS and you can redeem the print instantly at the Power Up Zone. This is just located within the same floor, across several zones from the event area.

At The Power Up Zone, kids can enjoy a life-size game where they will “power up to be a Nexo Knight” by physically holding a shield and a sword to engage and battle with enemies on a TV screen. Isn’t this cool? My son enjoyed this a lot and made him feel like a real knight in battle!
At the Battle Zone, this is at the Centre Court where all the Lego models are in display, Lego has several activities lined up for the little ones and even adults. There’s a showcase of tablets where everyone can play the Merlok 2.0, a free-to-download app available at the AppStore and GooglePlay, then battle as a Nexo Knight and fight the evil forces of Jestro. This cool app has an amazing feature where you can scan knight shields to use them as powers within the game. There are as many as 170 unique NEXO Knights powers that can be found in physical and digital forms, in building sets, print ads, books, comics and even from the TV series. (I will share more details and guide for this amazing app and the NEXO Academy in my next post, this is really exciting! I wanna play!)
At the Battle Zone, you’ll also have access to the Virtual Lego Nexo Knights Battle Tour where you get a close-up look into the fantastical world of Knighton, as an apprentice in training for the Lego Nexo Knights academy.
The Forge Zone allows kids to play mini-models and have fun learning to build Lego figures with simple steps. It’s fun to see children having a great time building something. I believe that this kind of activity fosters imaginative and creative skills among our children.
The Lego Nexo Knight mascot also appears in the afternoon, bringing much delight to everyone. Here are the happy children at the event together with Clay Morrington and the fun team of Lego!
Lego Nexo Knights is the first ever collection of Lego products to combine various points of activities into a multi-dimensional play and a new way of playing with technology. With the NEXO Academy, LEGO fans of all ages can engage in both online and offline realms as we all train to be the best knights of Knighton!
