ENFIELD, Conn., May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — LEGO Systems, Inc. today announced The Quest2NINJAGO™ Wu-Cru Team Challenge, a traveling interactive competition visiting seven cities across the United States this summer. Based on the blockbuster LEGO® NINJAGO™ property – which comes to life through a collection of building sets and a top-rated animated television series on Cartoon Network – the competition invites children ages 7-12 to use their “ninja” skills to conquer challenges and compete for a chance to be named a Quest2NINJAGO Champion.
