    A LEGO Friends Designer Contest was launched earlier this year and LEGO hosted a Designer Contest where the creation will be made into an official LEGO product. In addition, the winner will get a mini doll representation as well! The winner is 8 year old Sienna from London, UK.

    Big congrats on designing this awesome Heartlake City Playground creation!! Below is an image of the top 10 finalists for the contest as well as more details regarding the winning entry. A LEGO commercial video for the new set is available on the official LEGO Contest page. Thanks to Heartlaketimes and Brickset for the news.

    LEGO Friends Designer Contest

    Sienna has been turned into a mini-doll to be available in the winning product. How cool is that?

    Name: Sienna
    Age: 8
    Lives in: London, UK with mom, dad and little brother, Austen.

    Favorites:

    • sport: gymnastics, rock climbing
    • hobbies: LEGO® bricks, art, music, piano
    • after-school activity: ballet, Brownies (the Girl Guides – not the cakes!)
    • food: chocolate
    • color: turquoise
    • LEGO Friend: Mia

    Five fun facts

    1. Sienna found ideas for the Heartlake City Playground from the playground near her house and other fun playgrounds and parks she has been to.
    2. Heartlake City Playground has Sienna’s absolute favorite playground activity: a climbing wall! And another favorite: monkey bars!
    3. Sienna’s brother brought a teddy bear everywhere when the family came to the LEGO headquarters in Billund. It was his school class teddy bear and it ended up as a model sticker!
    4. Sienna’s mini-doll character has a brown pet dog named Pippa. It’s named after her grandmother’s new pet that she got for her birthday!
    5. Sienna is always busy with school, after-school clubs, and spending time with her friends and family. To find time to build the playground, she used every minute of spare time she could find. She even shut herself in her bedroom for a full Saturday to build the playground and only came out for lunch and dinner!

    A new LEGO CEO has been appointed to replace current CEO Bali Padda.  Niels B. Christiansen, 51 has been appointed as the new LEGO CEO and will take effect on October 1, 2017. The full press release can be found here.

    The LEGO Group today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Niels B. Christiansen, 51, as CEO of the LEGO Group effective October 1, 2017.

    Christiansen was most recently CEO of global industrial technology company, Danfoss, a position he held for nine years until end of June 2017. Christiansen replaces Bali Padda, 61, a long-standing LEGO Group executive, who will assume a special advisory role with LEGO Brand Group.

    Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, Executive Chairman of LEGO Brand Group said, ‘Niels is a great leader who delivered outstanding results while CEO of Danfoss. There, he transformed a traditional industrial company into a technology leader. His experience in digitalisation and globalisation, implementing a transformative strategy, and creating an agile, high performing, international team will benefit the LEGO Group. The Board is confident that under Niels, the LEGO Group will continue to flourish and bring play experiences to more children around the world.’ Knudstorp said the transition to a new CEO occurred more rapidly than the Board had anticipated.

    “Bali has been part of the LEGO Group family for the past 15 years. He played an integral role in the turnaround of the LEGO Group and during his time as CEO created a solid foundation from which to continue to transform the company. He is a great friend and a wonderful ambassador for the LEGO® brand,” said Knudstorp.
