~~~ Update: LEGO VIDIYO put on pause! ~~~
Please read the official statement put out by LEGO below:
As you know, we launched LEGO VIDIYO in January to connect with children in a completely new way, blending music, digital play and LEGO building in a fun and unique way. The product tested extremely well during development and has received really positive feedback from those children and families who have played with it.
We’ve seen a positive response to the launch, but we’ve also received feedback from people that we could make the play experience across the app, BeatBits, music and minifigures even simpler. So, we’re taking that onboard and together with Universal Music Group are going to pilot some new ideas in 2022, then release new play experiences in 2023 and beyond.
LEGO VIDIYO is very much still available, the current products will continue to be sold in stores and marketed globally, and we’re continuing to support this fantastic play experience, including new updates and fun challenges to the app to inspire children’s creative music video making .
Thank you for your continued support of the LEGO brand, we hope for your understanding behind this decision.
The team at PromoBricks have been reporting that the relatively new LEGO VIDIYO theme is rumoured to be cancelled!
The news that the upcoming third wave of LEGO VIDIYO sets are being cancelled and no longer being shipped to retailers.
Sadly this doesn’t come as a big surprise with the second wave of sets being released with heavy discounts on Amazon and other retailers from day one.
Chuck the widely unusable app into the mix and it was doomed from the start unfortunately. When technology and especially apps are introduced you need to make sure that it is accessible to every device, everyone and everywhere!
With the rumoured news the line is retiring there maybe a Worldwide reduction in price so keep your eyes open when out and about. There are still some cracking sets and Minifigures to collect and at reduced/end of line stock prices you can’t say no.
