It’s November! By now, you’re probably prepping up for your annual custom LEGO Winter Village build. And here’s a fun and free way to add more fun to your build – LEGO has just introduced its new LEGO Winter Fun VIP Add-on Pack 40610.
Exploring the Newest Gift-With-Purchase Set – the LEGO Winter Fun VIP Add-on Pack 40610
If you recall, LEGO revealed a similar gift-with-purchase (GWP) polybag last month in the form of the LEGO Christmas Fun VIP Add-On Pack 40609.
Since LEGO has rolled out a similarly themed polybag freebie, I’m not quite sure if this is just a regional variation or an entirely new offering on top of set 40609. As of this posting, only LEGO Singapore and LEGO Malaysia are listing the LEGO Winter Fun VIP Add-on Pack 40610.
Nevertheless, the latest free giveaway is a welcomed addition to any winter-themed LEGO collection. Let’s dive in and see what we can expect from this new promotional item just in time for the holidays.
First Glimpse of the LEGO Winter Fun VIP Add-on Pack 40610
While the LEGO Winter Fun VIP Add-on expansion set is not yet available in the US, our friends in Singapore and Malaysia have the privilege of getting a first look at this delightful creation. Valued at $10, this free set is a welcome departure from the usual Christmas-themed sets, and offers a variety of winter-themed pieces that will spark your creativity.
Piece Count and Other Unique Parts
Featuring 142 parts, the LEGO Winter Fun VIP Add-on Pack includes plenty of interesting pieces centered around the winter season. Not including the white LEGO bricks, we can expect plenty of holiday pieces such as pine trees, brown LEGO pieces, a playful squirrel, and plenty of minifigure accessories such as skis, snowboards, a guitar, an axe, and more.
To add this set to your shopping cart for free, you will likely need to make a minimum purchase of $50 in the LEGO online shop. While the exact promotional period for December is yet to be confirmed, I’m really forward to seeing this in the LEGO US online shop and other regions as well.
For a more in-depth look at the 40610 Winter Fun set, you can visit LEGO’s Pick a Brick feature, where you can explore the list of included parts. Please note that the white house is not included in the set; it’s used to demonstrate how you can use these components to create your winter-themed models.
The Legacy of LEGO VIP Add-on Gift-With-Purchase Packs
Needless to say, the LEGO Winter Fun VIP Add-on 40610 expansion set is a remarkable addition to LEGO’s collection of VIP Add-on Packs. This release marks the tenth in the series, and it follows the success of nine unique VIP giveaways. If you recall, we also saw a LEGO Lunar New Year VIP Add-On Pack and a lot more similar gift-with-purchase packs from 2021.
Each of these small sets has had its own theme, often drawing inspiration from the seasons. In the case of winter, we now have the privilege of seeing a second polybag offering. This set stands out from its predecessor, the LEGO Winter Wonderland VIP expansion set 40514 from 2021, with its distinctive composition and fewer Trans-Light Blue elements for crafting icy landscapes.
LEGO fans have much to look forward to with the upcoming release of the LEGO Winter Fun VIP Add-on 40610. This unique promotional offering adds more fun to your LEGO winter collection and promises to spur your imagination to build more holiday-themed creations.
Stay tuned for more updates about this GWP set.
