Bali’s Beachwalk Shopping Centre in Kuta has welcomed a new shopfront to the mall.
The LEGO Store has officially opened its doors and is already proving to be a firm favorite with families, tourists, and locals alike. The store is the sixth official LEGO store in Indonesia.
The General Manager of LEGO in Indonesia, Ie Jung, told reporters, “In terms of age, LEGO games can be played from 18 months to adults.”
The new concept store in Kuta Beachwalk Mall has been branded as ‘Retailtainment’ – more than just a place to browse and shop, the LEGO Store is a place to play and create.
Tjung explained, “This latest LEGO Concept Store consistently brings the ‘Retailtainment’ concept to more LEGO fans throughout Indonesia, presenting various new ways to enjoy shopping and playing activities.”
With the rainy seasons coming up and the big Christmas and New Year holidays, families traveling to Bali will be on the lookout for rainy-day activities that will keep little ones entertained, and a visit to the LEGO store will certainly keep everyone entertained.
There is something pretty magical about the new LEGO store, featuring LEGO Pick and Build, a special AR interactive kiosk, and a futuristic Digibox that allows customers to hold a box of LEGO sets up to the camera and see the contents as a virtual 3D model that appears in an animation on the screen in front of them.
Tjung added that the store I”s the place where one can find the most complete LEGO collection including exclusive sets.
This shop also provides a Gift Center and the entire store is organized into clear categories between various themes such as City, Friends, DUPLO, and other favorite collections. So both children and adults can easily choose the set they want.”
Indonesian soap actress Nana Mirdad was in attendance at the grand opening on Thursday afternoon and shared with reporters her love of the classic toys.
She shared, “I think the uniqueness of LEGO games is to provide entertainment not only for children, but also for adults.”
Adding, “Apart from being a means of entertainment, LEGO games also have an important role in facilitating children’s social and cognitive interactions.
“Such as the ability to work together to build complex LEGO structures can also help children develop healthy cooperation and communication skills.”
The opening of the LEGO Store at Beachwalk Mall is just one of many family friend activities to take part in at the mall.
Located right on Kuta Beach, Beachwalk Mall is a popular hangout spot for locals and expats in the evening time, when everyone gathers together to play or watch basketball as the sunsets over the ocean.
