If you're looking for a fun-loving space-themed Lego set, we've got a good one for you. Lego Monkie Kid Chang'e Moon Cake Factory has had its price cut by 30% in Lego.com's Black Friday sale, making it just $48.99.
A realistic Lego space set this is not, but as far as colorful and fun playsets go, we don't think they get much better than this. Part of the Monkie Kid range that's inspired by Chinese legends, the Chang'e Moon Cake Factory is aimed at kids aged 8 and up and includes everything they need to build their own imaginative moon base.
With an RRP of $69.99, you'll be keeping $21 in your pocket if you pick up this Black Friday Lego deal. You've got a couple of days to pick it up — providing stocks last — as we know that Lego's Black Friday deals are running into Cyber Monday, too. But come 11.59pm on Nov. 27, this deal (and all the rest) will be gone.

Lego Monkie Kid Chang'e Moon Cake Factory is made up of 609 pieces, and within that you'll find three minifigures: there's Chang'e, a Lunar Rabbit Robot and space-outfit Pigsy. You'll also find Mo, a blue cat who sports a mohawk.
The set comes with instructions to help kids build a moon base, a carrot-shaped rocket, a moon cake production line and a bunny mech with built-in stud-shooters. There's a lot going on, then, making this a great set for imaginative, story-based play.
For collectors, there's not a great deal of displayability with this set, but plenty of adult Lego fans will appreciate the unique minifigures and colorful parts used here.
