Lego Store Philippines-3.jpg
This is the first LEGO store in the Philippines. It’s a bit expensive but is a fair deal.

There are some newly released Lego sets like Simpsons, some old ones like Ninja Go and Star Wars, and some hard to find Lego sets like Minecraft.

There are tables where you can play Duplo and see Legos in display cases. You can engrave your names on bricks, and you can choose the color of the brick and the text.

Let me tour you around the first Lego Certified Store in the Philippines:
