LEGO Christmas Make & Take At Toys R Us

We know that some people had mixed experiences with the Star Wars Make & Take this weekend gone but it’s hard to argue with free LEGO!

Toys R Us are getting into the Christmas spirit with a new Christmas themed Make & Take event on Saturday December 5th 2015. From the picture it looks like the set is a cute LEGO Christmas Tree with Santa.

The LEGO “Brick Friday” offer for Australian shoppers is now available. Unfortunately the offer for us is lacking compared to some other regions around the world.

While others get discounts and bonuses the Australian Brick Friday offer is just 40107 Winter Skating Scene when spending over $100.
