Bunnings Warehouse releases LEGO-style blocks for kids set ahead of Christmas

Brace yourselves, parents. Bunnings Warehouse has released the ultimate Christmas gift for its youngest fans.

The hardware giant has restocked its famous LEGO-style set for kids to build their own version of its iconic green building.

The 168-piece set, which has sparked a frenzy by parents, includes intricate detail from the glass sliding doors, to the timber yard, the plant nursery and even its famous sausage sizzle stand, complete with miniature hot dogs.

But parents face a race down the aisles to snag the “Bunnings Block Warehouse”, with the $30 sets in limited supply and a two-per-customer limit being enforced in stores.

And only three WA stores — Armadale, Broome and Bunbury — will stock them.

Bunnings said the set, which does not carry the LEGO brand name, was hugely popular last year.

“Last year it flew out the door as soon as it arrived in stores,” a Bunnings spokesperson said.

“Now, it’s back just in time for Christmas.”

Thousands of parents have taken to Facebook groups vowing to travel far and wide to track down the sought-after toys and tagging in mates.

“This has your name all over it,” wrote one to a friend. “Also, another reason to go to Bunnings.”

But it seems few have managed to get hold of one of the prized boxes, with parents raising issues about being unable to buy them online.

That is, save for one parent who set an early alarm to make sure they don’t miss out.

“We got one!” the woman declared on Facebook.

“Was at my local at 5.45am this morning to get them, 1st in line.”

Aussie kids have long had a fascination with Bunnings, no doubt due to tagging along on countless trips with their parents on weekends.

In 2018, Perth boy Carter Stingers set the internet alight after his parents threw a Bunnings party for his fourth birthday.

The party featured a “garden centre” with pot plants for guests to take home and a “paint centre” where kids could paint plaster statues.

And of course, the catering was sausage sizzles.

The local Bunnings even donated merchandise for the party including pencils cases and balls while friends and family members who worked for the company in Queensland provided aprons, bunting and balloons.
