Toy manufacturer Lego has unveiled its first certified retail store in Saudi Arabia, situated in the Red Sea Mall in northern Jeddah.

The store will also have interactive stations for children and their families to play and engage, while it will showcase a variety of unique features, including exclusives such as Modular bookshop, Manchester United Stadium, International Space Station, Fiat 500, Pirates of Barracuda Bay, Fairground Haunted House and Lamborghini.

Apart from the store which was set up in partnership with franchise partner Kamal Osman Jamjoom Group, a LEGO e-commerce website has also been unveiled.

“We are thrilled to open the first Lego store in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and to bring the Lego play experience to even more families in the region,” noted Jeroen Beijer, general manager Lego for Middle East and Africa.
