LEGO servers at cache.lego.com have been recently updated with a new set of building instructions that point out to a delightful party treat that everyone will surely enjoy. Named as the LEGO Birthday Buddy 40226, the set comes in 133 pieces and presumably in a boxed packaging. It resembles a chocolate cupcake with a candle on top, with a build reminiscent to that of the LEGO Mixels theme. It’s kind of cute and frankly speaking, and if you’re familiar with Nintendo’s pink puffball Kirby, then you’ll probably get the idea.
The Birthday Buddy is a birthday party themed set that is a good companion from last year’s similarly themed exclusive, the LEGO Birthday Table Decoration 40153. This popular seasonal set comes in 120 pieces and has a price of $9.99, featuring a pop-up jester minifigure and buildable numbers from 1-99 – a suitable birthday gift for any LEGO fan both young and old.
Given the price per piece of the 40153, the LEGO Birthday Buddy 40226 may perhaps be a boxed set similarly priced at $9.99. We might also see the 40226 posted later on at shop.lego.com, at any LEGO Certified Stores, and at LEGOLAND parks. These are just assumptions though, so we’ll keep a close eye for more news about this set so stay tuned here at the Brick Show for more LEGO news and updates!
