LEGO Monkie Kid

LEGO Monkie Kid is inspired by the 500-year-old story of the Monkey King, and LEGO Group’s take on a new, untold chapter of the legendary tale.... 



Featuring eight exciting LEGO blocks sets, an animated mini movie about 45 minutes long and TV series, LEGO Monkie Kid is the first ever LEGO theme inspired by a Chinese legend.... 



The theme’s sets are packed with fun, excitement and an epic story just waiting to unfold…



The tale begins when an ordinary boy, Monkie Kid, finds Monkey King’s legendary staff and he becomes the chosen one. 




Together with his brave and loyal friends, Monkie Kid begins his quest to stop the Demon Bull King and his army of Bull Clones from taking over the city... 



Paying tribute to stories known and admired by so many children and parents in China and Asia, this latest LEGO play theme brings new life to the iconic Monkey King fable and provides a common ground for children, parents and even grandparents to build and play together.... 




With a modern Chinese twist, LEGO Monkie Kid celebrates bravery and friendship, allowing children to engage in fun building experiences whilst helping them to develop their imagination and creativity.



Children can look forward to eight action-packed sets with colourful characters, impressive vehicles with exciting new and hidden features - plus a blue cat with an orange mohawk! The sets are a result of two years of close collaboration with children and parents in China to ensure they are authentic to local culture. 


This is the first time LEGO Group has created a theme inspired by one culture and with so much attention to local details, values and traits.... 

“I have been touched and inspired by China’s rich history and culture, the passion and pride of the people and the incredible creativity of China. It has been an honour and privilege to be able to immerse myself in China’s culture of storytelling, in particular - Journey to the West and the Monkey King. The epic stories and incredible characters have been a huge inspiration to the LEGO design team and me. It is with deepest respect for Chinese culture and the 500-year-old legend that we have created the next chapter in the story of the Monkey King – The Monkie Kid,” says Simon Lucas, Senior Design Director at the LEGO Group.



LEGO Monkie Kid will launch worldwide on May 16th on LEGO.com, in LEGO Brand Retail Stores, LEGO Certified Stores and LEGOLAND with early access for Malaysia from May 15th in LEGO Certified Stores only.... 




Local broadcasting station Media Prima will be airing the Monkie Kid TV animated content on TV3 and ntv7 this year.... I was lucky to get a sneak peek and I truly loved it.... It is colourful, beautiful, creative and exciting...
