This partnership aims to enable children around the globe to explore their creativity and express themselves in music. Moreover, the alliance between LEGO Group and Universal Music Group is rooted on the development of new LEGO toy products.

Details about the partnership

LEGO will launch the said items in 2021.

Universal Music Group is the perfect partner

Music plays a significant role in the upbringing of a child – from the moment they are born until their maturity. Case in point, children’s music, saw a rise with the ongoing pandemic and social distancing directives.

Streaming in the said genre increased up to 9.8% when many states began lockdowns. With Universal Music Group, LEGO will provide children an entirely new way to enjoy playing by bringing music to their own world.

Furthermore, the LEGO Group CMO has acknowledged the incredible ability of music to engage and unite children and their families, just like the LEGO brick.
