LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) Promotion Live on [email protected]

The new LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) promotional set is now live on [email protected]. To celebrate Chinese/Lunar New Year, LEGO has released this cute little set that was previously only available in Asian countries and in the UK for a short time. To get the Year of the Dog set, it is free with purchases of $88 or more. The promotion runs from now until February 28, while supplies last. If you see the slider on [email protected], the $50 minimum purchase is incorrect as you have to have at least $88 in your cart. I’ve already done an early review of the set if you want to check that out.

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) Review

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235)

The Chinese Lunar New Year kicks off this Friday, February 16 and it is a very important holiday for the countries that celebrate it around the world. According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2018 is the Year of the Dog and to celebrate LEGO will be releasing the Year of the Dog (40235) set with purchases of $88 or more at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected] starting this Friday. If you think the purchase requirement seems a little off, that is because the number 8 in the Chinese culture is considered very lucky and $88 signifies double joy/prosperity. This also marks the first time in the US that we can get these Year of the Zodiac sets and we don’t have to rely on friends or the secondary market to get it.

The Year of the Dog set is the fourth of these small boxed sets and fifth overall if you count the 4-in-1 Year of the Snake (10250) set from 2013. The box is very cute showing off the Dog and there’s even a space to put a name down for the person you want to gift this set to. The back of the box shows off some of the articulation features of the Dog.

Opening up the flapped box, you are greeted with an envelope along with three un-numbered bags and the instructions.

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) Available in February in the US

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235)

I have the February 2018 LEGO Store Calendar and one of the main promotions for the month is the LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) set. Apparently for this year, it is not an Asian country exclusive as we will be able to get it from February 16-28 with a purchase of $88 or more, while supplies last. The Dog joins a number of previous animals that have been released that are from the Chinese zodiac.

Coincidentally, February 16 is Lunar New Year so it’s nice to see that LEGO has also decided to celebrate the event with this set here in the US. As for the purchase price of $88, the number 88 symbolizes fortune and good luck in Chinese culture. I am very looking forward to the LEGO Year of the Dog set as I am born on this zodiac animal and don’t have to resort to the secondary market to get a copy of it.
