LEGO NINJANGO Land 

Once upon a time, there were LEGO parties or Ninja parties. Look for this season’s birthdays to be taken over by LEGO NINJANGO parties! Spaceships and Laser Beams is on the case with DIY LEGO NINJANGO Movie Character Masks, which make both a great craft for your battling guests and a creative head start on Halloween costumes.
