The first International Day of Play is celebrated on June 11, 2024. On this day every year hereafter, the world will celebrate the power of play.

Play is never just play. Play is universal and taps into children’s natural enthusiasm and curiosity to learn. Play teaches children to explore, to wonder, to connect ideas and experiences and help them gain a deeper understanding of the world that surrounds them. When children play, they develop essential life skills such as creativity, confidence and resilience that help them thrive as they grow up.

Playing takes little more than picking up a stone or a stick. The only real investment is time. Yet, both parents and children indicate that the demand for children’s time away from play is increasing – with play time often being deprioritized.

In a recent survey of 25,500 children and 36,000 parents in 36 countries commissioned by the LEGO Group, 59% of parents indicated they worry that their children do not have enough playtime, do not have enough access to fun activities

LEGO Insiders Community Shutting Down June 26

A while back, LEGO launched the LEGO Insiders Community which served sort of a forum/news area for AFOLs by AFOLs. LEGO today has announced that it will be shutting down June 26 and the content will be integrated into LEGO Ideas. I don’t think many people used the LEGO Insiders Community platform since it was newly launched and I didn’t really see LEGO advertising it too much. The last content update was back in March while fans sparingly posted in the forum area. Did you use this platform or did you even know about it in the first place?

We wanted to share an update with you. As part of the LEGO Group’s journey to offer fantastic experiences for adult builders, we’ve decided to close the LEGO® Insiders Community platform, effective June 26, 2024.

We’re eager to innovate and find more ways to connect with you and other builders, and whilst we’ve taken lots of great learnings from the platform, this decision allows us to streamline and focus on making improvements to our other experiences.

We’re asking our fans who use LEGO Insiders Community to join LEGO Ideas. Additionally, we’re moving the content from LEGO Insiders Community over to LEGO Adults Welcome and we’ll be broadening out our offerings there as well.
