Years ago, LEGOLAND theme parks during special occasions such as Halloween would make available promotional LEGO bricks for their guests as souvenirs. These bricks are 2×4 and thicker than most, to allow commemorative art to be painted on its sides. The practice wore off recently but seeing a resurgence now.
This was first noted by us here on The Brick Show almost two weeks ago, when we reported that LEGOLAND Dubai’s own Halloween extravaganza for the month of October also included a giveaway of a promotional LEGO brick. Germany’s followed suit with LEGOLAND Deutschland bringing out its own commemorative piece.
Where LEGOLAND Dubai’s Halloween 2018 brick is orange with a bat motif, their Deutschland counterpart is going for a yellow piece, also 2×4 pegs, printed on one side with a logo of the theme park, on the other with a minifigure in a spider costume holding a spider in hand.
News of the LEGOLAND Halloween brick for Germany was showcased on German LEGO news source Promo Bricks, along with a rundown of activities and events for the spooky occasion all through the end of October. More information on these festivity highlights can be found on the LEGOLAND Deutschland official website.
