There I was at The Curve a couple of days back to check out LEGO Malaysia's showcase over at the concourse area. Always a fan of LEGO from when I was young, I am in awe of how far they have come, from simple building blocks of the past, to elaborate structures and buildings. LEGO Malaysia brought the popular LEGO Ninjago to life at the Curve, where Ninja enthusiasts had the opportunity to enter the mystical world of Ninjago, undergo an intense training only fit for a true Ninja and fight alongside Kai, Zane, Cole and Jay against the evil Morro at the LEGO Ninjago Battle Dojo. A kid's dream playground.

Arriving at the concourse area of The Curve, I was impressed by the vast size of the LEGO Ninjago showcase. LEGO Ninjago Temple of Airjitzu made its debut in the Klang Valley at the LEGO Ninjago Battle Dojo in the Curve. Budding Ninja warriors got an opportunity to immerse themselves in the LEGO Ninjago™ experience by traversing through 5 different lands – Build, Hiraki Lake, Calligraphy, Wisdom Path and Airjitzu Battle Zones – as apprentices before earning their rightful place as Ninja warriors.

Speaking at the event, Dick Yoong, Country Manager of LEGO Malaysia said, “At LEGO, we strive to provide creative offerings that enrich consumers and fans of all ages, by stimulating their imagination and igniting their ideation. The LEGO Ninjago™ range particularly fosters imaginative play and allows children to construct their own Ninjago™ dream world.

"It also instils positive values in children such as discipline, integrity, perseverance, courage and strength. One of many, we look forward to bringing more of such fun and educative experiences for our Malaysian consumers in the future as well" Dick added.

Budding ninja warriors begin their exciting Ninja path by creating their own Ninjago character and then crossed the treacherous Hiraki Lake on a narrow beam. Their knowledge of all things Ninja were then put to the test as the Ninja apprentices constructed ninja words in teams. They eventually made their way to the wisdom pathway where they found Airjitsu clues in a puzzling maze to unlock their final phase of their training.

The LEGO Ninjago culminated in an exciting battle with the ghost Ninja using Airjitsu flyers. Upon completing the final leg of the training, they were then awarded with a Ninjago certificate by Sensei Wu signalling their turn as full-fledged Ninjas.

With the specially-designed challenges and various fun activities, this is an adventure like no other and will definitely be a memorable Ninja adventure for families of all ages here at the Curve", said Jazmi Kamarudin, General Manager of the Curve.
