‘We’re thrilled to bring LEGO Monkie Kid to Amazon audiences to Amazon Kids+,’ says Jill Wilfert, Vice President of Entertainment Partners and Content at the LEGO Group. ‘LEGO Entertainment aims to create brand love by bringing our brand and franchises to life. Amazon allows us to bring new types of content and product to audiences around the world and connect with consumers in a meaningful way. We hope that through Amazon, our fans will fully immerse themselves in the LEGO Monkie Kid story.’

LEGO Monkie Kid is inspired by the Monkey King legend and Journey to the West. It was entirely devised for the East Asia market, with the products and series designed especially for children familiar with the classic stories.
‘Bringing a series like LEGO Monkie Kid to our toy product lineup and to our Amazon Kids+ service was high on our list of priorities as we continue to expand our content and product offerings for customers,’ says Anne Carrihill, Amazon’s Director for Toys & Games. ‘We are thrilled to bring these legendary tales to life for customers on the digital screen, as well as through imaginative play with new and exciting LEGO sets discoverable in our store.’
