LEGO launches ‘Play Unstoppable’ campaign

THE GOAL of the LEGO Group’s “Play Unstoppable” campaign is to inspire girls to explore and express their creativity without limits. The toy company previously conducted studies that showed that while 76% of young girls feel confident in their creativity, that number declines as they get older. LEGO will hold a series of “creativity caravans” around Metro Manila — in Toy Kingdom, Toy Express, Toys R Us, and LEGO stores — throughout March, which will be open to girls ages four to 15. Upon arrival, the girls can register on-site to receive a free LEGO Polybag set which they can play with at the activity area and take home for free after. For more information, check out LEGO’s official social media pages.
