7 New LEGO Monkie Kid Sets Are Coming on 1st January

LEGO has revealed more sets that are coming on New Years Day, with seven brand new sets coming to the Monkie Kid series.

Monkie Kid is a fairly new brand for LEGO, originally created to capture the Chinese LEGO market. It’s proven to be quite popular, and has now spawned the fourth wave of sets. Let’s take a look at what we have to look forward to come 1st January, shall we?

LEGO 80036 The City of Lanterns

  • RRP £114.99
  • 2,187 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 7 minifigures (plus 2 buildable robots)

At £115, this is the most expensive of the new LEGO Monkie Kid sets. But it’s seriously impressive. It packs in a tonne of detail – there’s a definite Ninjago City vibe going on here. A monorail train circles the city block, and we can see some individual stores on here – including a LEGO store. Honestly, we’re rather excited to get our hands on this in January. Read more about it at LEGO.com.

LEGO 80035 Monkie Kid’s Galactic Explorer

  • RRP £89.99
  • 1,356 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 6 minifigures

Monkie Kid is heading into space with this latest build. The focus is of course the Chinese-inspired rocket itself, which soars at an impressive 41cm tall. The six minifigures and launching pod add plenty of detail too, making this a great playset. More information is available on LEGO’s store page.

LEGO 80034 Nezha’s Fire Ring

  • RRP £69.99
  • 929 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 6 minifigures

There’s quite a lot going on in this set, although the main attraction is that titular ‘Fire Ring’; a monowheel vehicle with flame-energy shooters. It looks great! The six minifigures included here are wonderful, too. See more at LEGO.com.

LEGO 80033 Evil Macaque’s Mech

  • RRP £54.99
  • 893 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 5 minifigures

Here’s one for the mech fans amongst us. We have a feeling this is one that will look much better in person; being 34cm tall means this is a fairly sizable build, and we love its red and black colourway. More images and extra information can be found on LEGO’s store page.

LEGO 80032 Chang’e Moon Cake Factory

  • RRP £44.99
  • 609 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 3 minifigures

This set brings to life a modern version of the moon goddess Chinese legend – albeit set in space. It’s a fun little set, and we love the minifigures here. And that punk cat! More information is available at LEGO.

LEGO 80031 Mei’s Dragon Car

  • RRP £34.99
  • 456 pieces
  • Age 7+
  • 4 minifigures

Ah, a futuristic car – something we can all get behind. This is reminiscent of recent Ninjago sets, but of course the Monkie Kid themed minifigures set it apart. More information is available on LEGO’s store page.

LEGO 80030 Monkie Kid’s Staff Creations

  • RRP £24.99
  • 309 pieces
  • Age 5+
  • 2 minifigures

Here’s a set with a slightly younger target audience than the rest of the new Monkie Kid sets. There are three smaller models to be built here – a car, a plane and a mech – though of course it also invites children to create their own models. Find out more at LEGO’s website.
