Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) We will first install lights to the Ice rink. Disconnect the following sections surrounding the snow pile on the right side as shown below:

 

Take a Blue 30cm Bit Light and bend the LED up at approximately 1cm from the end. With the LED facing the Ice rink, place the cable in between the white studs, then secure it in place by reconnecting the white angled brick as shown below:

 

 

2.) Reconnect the surrounding pieces, then turn this section around to the side and bring the cable towards the back. Disconnect the light post section and lay the cable in between studs underneath it. Reconnect the light post to secure the cable in place.

 

Turn the set around to the back and connect the Blue Bit Light into a large port on a Micro 4-Port Expansion Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and insert 3x NEW AA Batteries to it. Connect the Battery Pack cable to the other large port on the Micro Expansion Board, then turn ON the power to test the blue light is working OK.

 

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

3.) We will now install flashing lights to the lights hanging over the ice rink. Disconnect the two light sections on the right, then disassemble them as shown below.

 

Take a Flashing White 30cm Micro Bit Light and place the LED inside one of the white plates with clips. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans green round plate over the top.

Warning – Do not forcefully connect the LEGO plate back inside the white plate. Because of the size of the micro LED, the plate will not fully connect inside. Forcing the plate to fully reconnect may cause the wire to break.

 

 

Repeat this step to install another Flashing White 30cm Micro Bit Light to the other light section.

 

 

4.) Reconnect the red light to the overhead string, ensuring the trans red plate is facing down. Bring the cable across and over the flag, then reconnect the green light ensuring the cable from the red light is laid inside the white clip of the green light.

 

Bring both cables over the flag, then disconnect the pole and wind both cables around it three times. Secure the two cables underneath the white 2×2 plate underneath the pole as shown below. Ensure the two cables are laid in between studs underneath and towards the back of this section.

 

Turn the set around to the back and connect both Micro Bit Light cables to the Micro Expansion Board (smaller ports). Turn the AA Battery Pack ON to test the flashing lights are working OK.

 

 

5.) We will now install the other two flashing lights above the rink. Disconnect the two light sections on the left side, then following the same process used in previous steps, install another 2x Flashing White 30cm Micro Bit Lights to these lights.

 

 

6.) Reconnect the green light first, ensuring the trans green plate is facing down, then bring the cable over the flag. Reconnect the red light ensuring the cable from the green light is clipped inside the white clip of the red light. Bring both cables over the flag.

 

Wind both cables around the pole twice, then secure the cables underneath the white plate on the bottom of the pole. Ensure the cables are laid together in between studs underneath and that they are facing toward the back of this section.

 

 

7.) Turn the set around to the back and disconnect the white 2×4 plate underneath the larger tree on the right. Lay the two cables down in between studs as shown below, then reconnect the white plate as well as the larger tree.

 

Connect the two Micro Bit Lights to the remaining ports on the Micro Expansion Board. Turn ON the Battery Pack to test the flashing lights are all working OK.

 

 

8.) Disconnect the AA Battery Pack from the expansion board, then disconnect the bench as well as the white 2×4 plate to the right of it. Lay the cables from the Blue Bit Light and the two Flashing Micro Bit Lights toward the centre of this section in between studs. Reconnect the 2×4 plate over the top followed by the bench.

 

Secure the cables underneath the smaller tree, then twist the cables around each other a few times just behind the smaller tree. Take 2x Adhesive Squares and stick them to the back of the expansion board, then stick the expansion board on the back of the white plates behind the bench.

 

Continue to twist and fold up the cables into a neat bunch, then tuck any remaining cable underneath the plates.

 

Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the larger port on the Micro Expansion Board. Leave the other end of the cable disconnected for now as this will be used to connect to an expansion board on the back of the bakery later on.

 

 

9.) We will now install lights to the bakery. First disconnect the sections just above the windows, then turn the set around and remove the roof and chimney sections as shown below.

 

Follow the below images to continue to disconnect sections from the top half of the bakery.

 

Turn the set around to the front and disconnect the following sections surrounding the front window.

 

 

10.) Take the front lamp section and disassemble it as shown below, then take a White 15cm Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through the bottom of the trans yellow cone piece. Thread the cable all the way through then, with the LED facing the front, reconnect the black post piece and re-clip it back to the orange brick. Reconnect the black round plate to the top.

 

Bring the cable down behind the black post, then underneath the brown brick before reconnecting it to the front of the Bakery. Ensuring the cable is laid in between studs, reconnect the red ‘L’ bricks over the top.

 

 

11.) Connect the White 15cm Bit Light to a White Strip Light, then take the AA Battery Pack and connect it to the Strip Light’s other port. Turn the Battery Pack ON to test the lamp and strip light is working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Disconnect the AA Battery Pack from the Strip Light, then reconnect all the sections we removed earlier surrounding the front window.

 

 

12.) We will now install a light to the lamp post. First disconnect and disassemble to lamp post as shown below:

 

Take a White 30cm Bit Light and place it in the centre of the black round plate. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans yellow brick with black dish over the top. Thread the Bit Light cable through the top of the sign section via the top open stud on the black brick. Pull the cable all the way out from the bottom, then reconnect the lamp. Ensure the cable is tucked into the gap underneath the black stud.

 

 

13.) Continue to thread the cable through all the black round bricks as well as the black cone brick at the bottom, then reconnect everything together (without the black bar). Reconnect the lamp post to the front of the set, then lay the cable behind it, in between studs. Reposition the tree in the middle of the plate to cover up the wire.

 

Turn the set around, then connect the Bit Light cable from the lamp post to an 8-Port Expansion Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and connect it to the expansion board, then turn ON the battery pack to test the lamp post is working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

14.) Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the 8-Port Expansion Board, then connect the other end of the cable to the other port on the White Strip Light from previous step.

 

Using it’s adhesive backing, stick the right side of the Strip Light underneath the red bricks on the right. The Strip Light is currently only partially sticking to this section as we will stick the other side of the strip light at a later stage.

 

Secure the White 15cm Bit Light cable underneath the left roof pieces ensuring you first pull the cable up to prevent it from being seen from the outside. Lay the 30cm Connecting Cable across the top of the bottom floor in between studs as shown below.

 

 

15.) We will now install flickering lights to the bakery oven. Follow the below images to disconnect sections of the oven to allow us to disconnect the trans orange round plates.

 

Take a White 15cm Micro Bit Light and with the cable facing the back corner, place the LED over the top left black stud. Secure the Micro Bit Light in place by reconnecting one of the trans orange round plates over the top. Repeat this to install another White 15cm Micro Bit Light to the right side.

 

Install another 2x White 15cm Micro Bit Lights to the bottom two studs, ensuring the cables are this time facing the bottom corners before reconnecting the trans orange round plates over the top. Pull the front two cables up before reconnecting the light grey ‘L’ plates.

 

 

16.) Take the upper oven section and disconnect the following sections from the bottom of it. Reconnect these two sections to the oven, then lay the two cables from each side, over the top of these sections, laying them in between studs.

 

Disconnect the following sections from the bottom of the oven section, then reconnect these pieces over the top of the cables.

 

Pull all four cables up, then thread them through underneath the space on the remaining oven section pieces. Reconnect the top of the oven, then pull the cables toward to back (front of the bakery).

 

 

17.) Take the second level section which sits above the left side of the bakery and disconnect the two bricks from underneath of it. Ensuring the four micro bit light cables are laid in between studs, reconnect the two light grey bricks over the top of them.

 

Lay the 30cm Connecting Cable in between the following studs (over the dark grey roof brick as well as in between studs below) before reconnecting the second level section over the top. Ensure the micro bit light cables are pulled up and are still accessible.

 

Take a new Micro 4-Port Expansion Board, and connect the four Micro Bit Lights to it. Slip the cables in between the bricks and leave the expansion board behind the brown crate for now, as we will connect this up later.

 

Ensure the cables are laid in between studs (30cm cable and white 15cm bit light cable), then reconnect the upper chimney section. Stick the left side of the White Strip Light underneath this section, then turn ON the Battery Pack to test the strip light is working and lighting up the bakery floor.

 

 

18.) Disconnect the crate from the second level, then take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the large port on the Micro Expansion Board. Connect the other end of the 5cm cable to one of the OUT ports on a Flicker Effects Board.

 

Take another 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the IN port on the Flicker Effects Board. Connect the other end of the 5cm connecting cable to the large port on a new Micro 4-Port Expansion Board.

 

Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the other large port on the Micro Expansion Board we just connected, then bring the cable down the left side of the bakery and connect it to a spare port on the 8-Port Expansion Board at the bottom of the set. Turn the Battery Pack ON to test the oven lights are working and flickering OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board).

19.) Disconnect the white tile on the left side of the bakery, then disconnect the left wall section. Turn the set around to the front, then reconnect the window section to the left side.

 

Remove all the light sections above both windows on the second floor, disconnecting them from the black plates with clips. Disconnect the red 1×4 plate behind them, then disconnect the trans coloured round plates from the white plates of the light sections as shown below.

 

 

20.) Take a Flashing White 15cm Micro Bit Light and place the LED inside the white plate with clip. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting one of the trans red round plates.

Remember – Do not forcefully connect the LEGO plate back inside the white plate. Because of the size of the micro LED, the plate will not fully connect inside. Forcing the plate to fully reconnect may cause the wire to break.

 

Lay the cable underneath the middle of the black plate, before reconnecting this section back to the top of the left window. Ensure the cable is laid in between studs underneath.

 

Install another Flashing White 15cm Micro Bit Light to the other light section, then reconnect it to the top of the left window.

 

Ensuring both cables are laid in between studs, reconnect the red 1×4 plate behind, then bring both cables across to the right side and secure them down underneath the following angled red brick.

 

 

21.) Repeat the previous step to install another 2x Flashing White 15cm Micro Bit Lights to the remaining light sections, then reconnect them above the right window. Ensuring the cables are laid in between studs, reconnect the red 1×4 plate behind.

 

Turn the set around to the back and connect all four flashing micro bit lights to the Micro 4-Port Expansion Board (one with nothing connected to it). Turn ON the Battery Pack to test the flashing lights above the windows are working OK.

 

 

22.) Neaten up all the excess cabling from the Flashing lights by twisting and folding them altogether into a neat bunch. Group all the components on the second floor together, then lay the 15cm Connecting Cable in between studs on the left side. Secure the cable down by reconnecting the white tile and the left wall section we removed earlier.

 

 

23.) We will now install a light to the bottom section of the bakery. Turn the set around to the side, and use your LEGO removal tool to create a gap just underneath the light grey plate above the side window.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and turn it over so that the LED is facing down, then thread the Bit Light through the gap we just created. Position the LED in the centre underneath the second floor, then secure it in place by connecting a provided LEGO Trans Clear Plate w Rounded Bottom 2×2 over it.The LED should be facing down and positioned in the middle of the trans clear plate.

 

Close up the gap we created, ensuring the Bit Light cable is laid in between studs, then connect the Bit Light to a spare port on the 8-Port Expansion Board at the bottom of the set. Turn ON the Battery Pack to test the internal light is working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

24.) Turn the set around to the front, then starting from the right side, reconnect the roof sections as well as the sections that connect on top of the windows.

 

Turn the set around and reconnect the top of the chimney, then reconnect the crate to the second floor ensuring the components are nicely tucked in and hidden behind it.

 

 

25.) The last light we need to install to the bakery is the one just above the front door. Take the remaining White 15cm Bit Light and stick it to an Adhesive Square. With the cable facing the right side, stick the Bit Light underneath the white plate above the door.

 

Bring the cable underneath the roof section and around to the back, then secure it underneath the white tile on the side of the building. Connect the Bit Light to a spare port on the 8-Port Expansion Board, then turn ON the AA Battery Pack to test the front door light is working OK.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) We will first install lights to the christmas tree on the side of the Gingerbread House. First disconnect the star followed by the four panel sections around the tree.

 

Disconnect the bottom sections from the front of the star as shown below, then reconnect the 1×2 plate with open studs.

 

 

2.) Take a Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and place it in between the two open studs, in the centre of the star. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans yellow triangular pieces over the top.

 

Thread the other end of the Bit Light cable through the gap at the bottom of the star, then pull the cable all the way out from behind. Reconnect the star to the tree.

 

 

3.) We will now light up the tree panels starting with the two that have the two trans yellow round plates on them. Take one panel and disconnect the bottom triangular plate from underneath, then disconnect the trans yellow round plate from the top.

 

Take a Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing away from you, place it directly over the green stud as shown below. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans yellow round plate over the top.

 

Disconnect the following few pieces from the bottom of the panel, then take another Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing the right, place it over the green stud. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans yellow round plate, followed by the other pieces we disconnected earlier.

 

 

4.) Fold the cable from the left underneath the plate as shown below, then take the cable from the right and bring it under the plate and lay it in between the studs of the plate that connects underneath this section. Reconnect the sections ensuring the cables are laid in between studs.

 

 

5.) Follow the previous steps to install another 2x Flashing White 15cm Bit Lights to the other tree panel with two trans yellow round plates.

 

 

6.) Take one of the panels and fold the two bit light cables down so they are facing the bottom. Tuck the top cable down underneath in the side of the plate, then reconnect the panel to the front of the tree.

 

Turn the tree around and bring the cable from the star down and lay it in between the studs before reconnecting the other panel over it. Ensure the top cable from the panel is also laid underneath the plate on the side.

 

 

7.) Take the other two tree panels and disconnect sections from one of them to install another Flashing White 15cm Bit Light to it.

 

Fold the Bit Light cable underneath the plate and lay it in between studs of the plate that it connects on top of, then securely reconnect the plates together.

 

 

8.) Repeat the previous step to install another Flashing White 15cm Bit Light to the remaining tree panel.

 

Fold each cable down toward the bottom of each panel, then reconnect each panel to the tree ensuring you connect the plates over the Bit Light cables from the other panels underneath.

 

 

9.) Turn the tree around so that we are facing the back, then connect all seven bit light cables to an 8-Port Expansion Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and insert 3x NEW batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to the expansion board, then turn it ON to test all the flashing lights installed to the tree are working OK.

 

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

10.) Disconnect the Battery Pack and all seven lights from the expansion board. From the back of the tree, twist all the cables around each other all the way to the ends so it forms one larger cable.

 

Reconnect the all the lights to the expansion board, then neatly bunch up the cables toward the end so they all come together. Position the components behind the tree, then connect a 30cm Connecting Cable to the remaining port. We will use this cable to connect to the rest of the Gingerbread House lights later on.

 

 

11.) We will now install lights to the Gingerbread House. We will need to disconnect quite a few sections from the top. First turn the set around to the back and disconnect the two roof sections as shown below:

 

Continue to remove roof and chimney sections as per below:

 

 

12.) Turn the set around to the front, then disconnect the following sections on top of the fire place to allow us to remove the LEGO light brick section.

 

Remove the window wall section, followed by the front roof, then continue to remove sections from the top of the fire place.

 

 

13.) Use your LEGO Removal Tool to create a gap between the white and brown plates above the front door, then disconnect the two lamps at the front.

 

Disconnect the black round plate from one of the lamps, then take a White 15cm Bit Light and place it directly over the stud of the black round plate. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the lamp over the top, ensuring the cable is facing the back of the lamp.

 

Wind the cable around the lamp post, then bring the lamp towards the house and thread the cable through the gap we created earlier, pulling the cable out from the inside until we can reconnect the lamp to the front.

 

 

14.) Repeat previous step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the other lamp, then thread the cable through the gap and reconnect it to the front of the house.

 

Ensure both cables are laid in between the brown studs, then close up the gap by securely reconnecting the top section.

 

Turn the set around and connect the two Bit Light cables we just installed to a 6-Port Expansion Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and connect it to a spare port on the expansion board, then turn it ON to test the two front lamps are working OK.

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!


Installing lights to the Snow Truck

1.) We will first install head lights to the Snow Truck. First disconnect the headlight section from the front, then remove the trans clear round tiles.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing down, place it over the top of the left black stud. Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided Trans Clear Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

2.) Repeat previous step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the other side using another Trans Clear Round Plate 1×1 to secure it in place, then reconnect this section back to the front of the truck.

 

3.) Turn the truck onto it’s side, then pull each cable behind the front wheel. Repeat this step to pull the cable on the other side over the wheel.

 

4.) Flip the truck over and bring each cable toward the back and secure them underneath the dark blue 1×4 plate on each side. Ensure the cables are laid in between studs underneath each dark blue plate.

 

5.) Take out a 6-Port Expansion Board and connect both Bit Light cables to it, then take the Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x CR2032 Batteries to it. Connect the Battery Pack cable to the expansion board and turn ON to verify the headlights are working OK.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Flat and Round Battery Packs (CR2032) have been removed as of June 2022 due to child safety regulations. 

Please use the 50cm Connecting Cable in place of the Battery Pack.

To test the lights, connect the 50cm Connecting Cable to a spare Expansion Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and with new batteries inserted, connect it to the expansion board. Turn the battery pack ON to test if all is working ok.  Once tested, disconnect the Expansion Board and AA Battery Pack and set them aside.

 

 

6.) With the truck flipped onto it’s right side, disconnect the rear left wheel.

 

Stick 2x Adhesive Squares onto the back of the expansion board, then mount it on the side behind the wheel. Reconnect the wheel as shown below:

 

7.) Turn the truck back over and disconnect the two brown bricks on the trailer. Take 2x Adhesive Squares and stick them to the below positions, then disconnect the tan 1×6 tile just below.

 

Stick the Flat Battery Pack onto the back of the truck, ensuring the switch is at the back, then lay the battery pack cable in between studs before reconnecting the tan 1×6 tile over the top.

 

8.) Bring the Battery Pack cable down the side of the trailer, then disconnect the light grey brick and lay the cable underneath in between studs before reconnecting the brick over the top.

 

9.) Clean up any excess cables underneath the truck by laying them underneath the dark blue plates as shown below:

 

This completes installation of the lights for the winter village cottage truck.

 


Installing Lights to the Fire Station and external sections.

1.) We will first install a light to the igloo. First take this section and remove the roof, then disconnect the back left corner wall sections as shown below:

 

2.) Disconnect one of the light grey tiles from the stove then, take a White 30cm Bit Light and place if over the top of the black stud. Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Ensure the cable is laid down in between studs before reconnecting wall sections over the top, then reconnect the roof and place aside as we will connect this to the cottage at a later stage.

 

3.) We will now install a strip light to the tool cabin. First take this section and lift up the roof sections. Take a White Strip Light and using it’s adhesive backing, stick it to the base of a provided Plate 1×6.

 

Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the Strip Light’s left port, then with the cable facing the back, mount the strip light to the right roof section as shown below:

 

Secure the cable underneath the following brick then place the cabin on the left side of the cottage. We will connect up the cable at a later stage.

 

4.) We will now light up the cottage starting with the lamp post. First disconnect the lamp post, then disconnect and disassemble to the top section.

 

5.) Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through one of the side holes of the black brick, then out the bottom as shown below:

 

Thread the Bit Light all the way through, then carefully push the bit light so that it sits flat against the edge of the hole. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans clear triangular piece over the top.

 

6.) Take another White 30cm Bit Light and bend the cable in a ‘hook’ shape, then thread it through hole on the opposite side of the black brick and out the bottom. Flatten the bit light against the edge of the hole then reconnect the trans clear triangular piece over the top.

 

Repeat the same process to install one more White 30cm Bit Light to the middle hold of this section.

 

Turn this section to the back and reconnect the remaining trans clear piece (without light underneath). The reason we are not installing another light to the back of this lamp post is to reduce the amount of visible cables that will be wound around the lamp post later.

 

7.) Take all three cables and thread each end through the top of the black dish piece one at a time, then reconnect this dish to the bottom of the light section. Reconnect the top of the lamp post.

 

8.) Reconnect the lamp back on top of the lamp post ensuring the cables are facing the back, then twist/wind the cables around each other starting from the top, all the way to the end so they all come together forming one larger cable.

 

9.) Wind the cable around the left side of the lamp post, then down toward the bottom right. Tuck the cable underneath the lamp post and lay in between studs toward the back before reconnecting the lamp post over top.

 

Bring the cable towards the back of the cottage and lay underneath the white bricks to secure the cable in place.

 

10.) Turn the cottage around to the back and take a 6-Port Expansion Board and connect the three bit light cables from the lamp post to it. Take the AA Battery Pack and insert 3x AA Batteries to it.

12.) Turn this section over then take a White 30cm Bit Light and stick it onto an Adhesive Square. Stick the light underneath this section with cable facing back as shown below:

 

Reconnect this section back to the window, then reconnect the window back to the roof ensuring the cable is facing up.

 

13.) Flip the roof section over and then upside down. Pull the cable up from underneath and secure it underneath the white 2×8 plate as well as the dark grey plate (disconnect plate, lay cable underneath, then reconnect plate over the top).

 

Take a White Strip Light and connect 5cm Connecting Cable to the right port. Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the left port.

 

Using it’s adhesive backing, stick the strip light to the back side of this roof section in the below position. Ensure the 5cm connecting cable is facing the right side then connect it along with the Bit Light cable from the window to a new 6-Port Expansion Board.

 

14.) From the back of the cottage, push your finger up underneath the second floor to disconnect the left plate with the bedside table on it.

 

Disconnect the trans clear round plates (bedside lamp) from the bedside table then take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing behind, place it over the top of the stud. Secure it in place by reconnecting the trans clear round plates over the top,  then from the back of the bedside table, press the cable down the back as shown below:

 

15.) Reconnect the left roof section to the cottage ensuring you first thread the other end of the 15cm Connecting Cable from the Strip Light as well as the 6-port expansion board down through to the inside.

 

From the inside of the cottage, thread the 15cm connecting cable down through to the inside of the ground floor and then pull it all the way out from the bottom.

 

16.) Take a White Strip Light and using it’s adhesive backing, stick it to the base of a provided Plate 1×6. Connect the 15cm Connecting Cable from above the ground floor to the right port. Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the strip light’s left port.

 

Mount the Strip Light to the ceiling above the ground floor in the below position ensuring the 30cm connecting cable is on the left side.

Ensuring the 30cm Cable is in between studs, reconnect the plate with the bedside table, then connect the Bit Light cable from the bedside lamp to the 6-port expansion board.

 

17.) Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the 6-port Expansion Board then disconnect the right roof section. Bring the 30cm cable behind the bedside table and bed, then down the right side of the room and secure it down underneath the bed. Connect the cable to the 6-port expansion board at the bottom right side of the cottage.

 

Turn the AA Battery Pack ON to verify all lights installed so far to the cottage are working OK.

 

18.) Disconnect the following section above the side window then take a White 15cm Bit Light and split apart the red and black wires as shown below:

 

Turn the Bit Light upside down and then place it over the green stud directly above the window. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the section above. If you look from below the window, the Bit Light should be slightly peaking out above the window to shine down.

 

19.) Connect the White 15cm Bit Light to the 6-port Expansion board behind the bedside table then lay the cable up the right side and then across behind the bed as shown below:

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have tethered the vehicle, please connect the cable from the vehicle to the remaining port on the 6-Port Expansion Board, while ensuring the cable is running out from the side (through the window) or behind the building.

Neaten up cables by grouping them altogether and winding/twisting/folding them around each other, then the tuck cables and expansion board down behind the bedside table.

 

Eliminate excess cable from the 30cm connecting cable on the right side by pulling some of it up, then twisting/folding it around each other. Tuck the bunched up cable in above the light grey clip before reconnecting the side roof section over the top.

 

Turn ON the battery pack to test the window light is working OK.

 

20.)  From the front of the cottage, disconnect the left and right sections from the right roof, then from the inside, disconnect section with the four lights.

 

21.)  Bring the 30cm Connecting Cable from the right side over towards the left section and thread it in between studs on top of the light blue plates on the right side, then reconnect the section with four lights over the top. Bring the cable further across to the left and secure in between studs underneath the light blue 1×6 plate as shown below.

 

22.) Disconnect the light section from the top of the floor, then disassemble it as per below:

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through the bottom of one of the black dish pieces. Thread it all the way through and then reconnect the trans clear minifig head piece to the bottom of the dish. The Bit Light should be neatly secured inside the stud of the trans clear piece.

 

23.) Repeat previous step to install another 3x White 15cm Bit Lights to the remaining three light pieces.

 

24.) Reconnect the four lights back to the light bracket then group all four cables and twist and wind them around each other all the way to the ends so they all come together to form one larger cable.

Reconnect this section back to the horizontal bar then reconnect it back to the top of the cottage.

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

Reconnect this section to the remaining open side of the tree

 

14.) Group all nine cables together behind the tree, then twist/wind the cables around each other so they all come together forming one larger cable.

 

Take 2x 6-Port Expansion Boards and connect the five shorter cables to one expansion board, then connect the other three to the other expansion board.

 

Connect the two expansion boards together using another 5cm Connecting Cable.

 

Take the AA Battery Pack and insert 3x AA Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to a spare port on the 6-port expansion board, then turn the battery pack ON to test the christmas tree lights are working OK.

 

15.) Disconnect the Battery Pack cable from the expansion board and connect one end of a 50cm Connecting Cable to it instead. Take 2x Adhesive Squares and stick one to each side of the dark grey brick at the bottom of the christmas tree.

 

Stick both expansion boards down onto the adhesive squares then neaten up cabling by pushing them down. The components and cables should be neatly hidden behind and not too obvious from the front of the tree.

 

Place the tree on the right side of the Fire Station. Leave the other end of the 50cm Connecting Cable disconnected for now as we will connect it up at a later stage.

 

16.) We will now install lights to the Fire Station, starting with the alarm at the front right of the building. First disconnect the roof then disconnect the alarm section including the light grey 1×2 tile with stud behind.

 

Disassemble this section as shown below then take a Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing behind, place it over the red stud. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans blue round plate over the top.

 

Take the other end of the bit light cable and thread it through the back of this section and then out the bottom as shown below:

 

Reconnect this section back to the light grey 1×2 tile with stud then thread the cable through the left hole that leads into the inside of the Fire Station. Thread this cable all the way through then reconnect this section back to the wall ensuring the cable is laid underneath the light grey tile..

 

17.) We will now install a strip light just above the front entrance. Using your LEGO removal tool, create a gap above the light grey bricks as shown below:

 

From the inside of the building, take the other end of the flashing white bit light from the alarm and thread it through the gap we just created (in between studs). Pull the cable out from front of the building and connect it to the right port on a White Strip Light.

 

18.) Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the Strip Light’s left port then using it’s adhesive backing, stick the strip light underneath the roof just above the front door as shown below:

 

Take the other end of the 15cm connecting cable and thread it through the gap and pull it all the way out from the inside of the building.

 

Pull the excess cable from the flashing white bit light (connected to the strip light) back inside the building then with both cables in between studs, close up the gap we created (above the front entrance).

 

From the inside of the building tuck the excess cable from the flashing white bit light up into the top left to ensure the front doors can open without the cable getting caught.

 

19.) Take a White Strip Light and using it’s adhesive backing, stick it into the base of a provided Plate 1×6.

 

Take the other end of the 15cm Connecting Cable from the strip light out the front and connect it to this Strip Light. Take a new 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the other port on the strip light.

 

Mount the Strip Light underneath the roof inside the ground floor as shown below. Ensure the newer 15cm connecting cable is facing the right side. To eliminate excess cable in between the two strip lights, loop the cable and tuck in, underneath the strip light.

 

20.) Take the other end of the 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it into the end port on an 8-Port Expansion Board. 

 

Connect up the AA Battery Pack, the  50cm Connecting Cable from the Ice Rink, and the two Bit Light cables from the lamp post to the 8-Port Expansion Board. Turn the Battery Pack On to test that all lights installed so far are working OK

 

Disconnect the Ice Rink Cable, the two bit light cables from the lamp post, as well as the AA Battery Pack to allow us to easily move the building around in order to install the remaining lights.

 

21.) We will now install a light to the lamp on the left side of the Fire Station. First disconnect the lamp along with the light grey 1×2 tile with stud behind it. Disconnect the trans yellow round brick and black dish.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through the bottom of the trans yellow brick. Thread it all the way through, then slightly bend the Bit Light so that it is directly facing down before pushing the it inside the trans yellow brick. Do NOT pull the cable all the way out from the other side, instead, leave Bit Light about half a centimetre from the top of the inside of the brick.

 

Carefully reconnect the lamp back to the bracket piece but do NOT forcefully push the bracket piece all the way down otherwise it may snap the bit light cable, instead, leave the bracket piece about half a centimetre out.

 

Use one of the LEGO tool pieces to push the Bit Light right up inside the trans yellow round brick.

 

22.) Thread the connector side of the Bit Light all the way through the left hole of the building before reconnecting the lamp ensuring the cable is laid underneath the light grey tile.

 

23.) Turn the building around to the back, then using your LEGO removal tool, create a gap in between floors as shown below:

 

Bring the cable from the lamp down the side of the building and slip it through the gap in between the far right stud. Pull the cable down from the inside to eliminate any excess cable, then connect the Bit Light to the 8-port Expansion Board underneath. Connect up the AA Battery Pack to the expansion board again and turn it ON to test the lamp is working OK.

 

24.) Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect one end to the 8-Port Expansion Board. Bring the other end of the cable out and slip it in between the gaps (where the lamp bit light cable is), secure both cables in place by reconnecting the floors to close up the gap.

 

Bring the 30cm Connecting Cable up the right side of the building then secure it in place by laying the cable in between studs underneath the red tile as shown below:

 

25.) We will now install a light to the lamp on the right side of the building. First disconnect the lamp along with the light grey 1×2 tile with stud behind it. Disconnect the trans yellow round brick and black dish. Follow steps 21 – 22 to install another White 15cm Bit Light to this lamp section, then reconnect it to the building. Remember to take extra caution when reconnecting the bracket piece back to the lamp. Do NOT forcefully push the bracket piece all the way down otherwise it may snap the bit light cable, instead, leave the bracket piece about half a centimetre out.

 

26.) Use the LEGO Removal Tool to disconnect the roof off the right section of the building.

 

Thread the Bit Light cable from the lamp up the tower through the corner gaps, then pull it all the way up to the top. Connect the cable to a new 6-Port Expansion Board.

 

27.) Take the roof that we just disconnected and flip it over so we can access underneath. Take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing toward the left, place it inside the centre hole. Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided Plate 1×2 over the cable. The Bit Light should be peaking out the right side of the plate as shown below.

 

Leave this section for now as we will reconnect it at a later stage.

 

28.) We will now install some lights above the front windows. First, turn the set around to the front and disconnect the following tiles and sections as per below, then disconnect pieces from the large main section.

 

29) Take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the bit light facing down and cable facing toward the inside of the building, place it over the edge of the left window in between white studs. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the two L shaped plates. If you look from underneath, you should be able to see the Bit Light peaking out just over the top of the window.

 

Repeat this step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the window on the right then reconnect surrounding pieces, except for the tiles.

 

30.) Turn the building around and from the inside of the set, lay the cable from the right around the stud above, then secure it down by reconnecting one of the red tiles.

 

Repeat this step for the cable on the left.

 

31.) Use the LEGO Removal Tool to create a gap to the upper section of the left tower, then thread both cables from the windows through this gap.

 

32.) Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect one end to the 6-port expansion board inside the left tower. Thread the other side of the cable through the gap we created in previous step. Pull the cable through from the other side then reconnect the wall to close up the gap and secure the cables (ensuring cables are laid in between studs).

 

Connect both window light cables to the expansion board then take 2x Adhesive Squares and stick them to the back of the expansion board to mount it on the inside of the tower as shown below:

 

33.) Take the tower roof we installed a Bit Light to in step 27 and bring it over the tower. Connect the Bit Light cable to the expansion board then wind/twist/fold the excess cable to neaten everything up. Tuck the excess cable toward the sides of the tower as well as up inside underneath the roof before securely reconnecting the roof.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
If you used the 50cm Connecting Cable for the Fire Truck, connect it to the remaining port on the 6-Port Expansion Board.
Run the cable out the side of the building before reconnecting the roof.

 

34) Take the main roof section and flip it over. Take the remaining White Strip Light and using it’s adhesive backing, stick it to the base of the remaining LEGO Plate 1×6. Take the 15cm Connecting Cable from the left tower and connect it to the left port on the strip light. Take the 30cm Connecting Cable from the right side of the building and connect it to the right port on the Strip Light.

 

Take the main roof section above the building and mount the Strip Light underneath in the below position. Eliminate excess cable by looping them underneath the strip light’s LEGO plate as shown below then securely reconnect the roof back on top of the building.

 

Turn the Battery Pack ON to test that all lights we have installed to the building are working OK.

 

35.) We can now reposition the Christmas Tree on the right side of the building. Take the 50cm Connecting Cable from this section and bring it around the back to connect to the 8-Port Expansion Board on the inside right side.

 

Reposition the Ice Rink and Lamp Post sections on the left side of the building and then reconnect all cables to the 8-Port Expansion Board.

 

Lastly, neaten up all cables, then tuck in the 8-Port Expansion Board inside the building behind the tool box. Neatly Place the AA Battery Pack behind and you’re done!

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) Start by removing the front sections of the train as per below in order for us to install the front lights.

 

 

2.) Remove the trans clear plate and then take a White 15cm Bit Light and place it directly over the stud of the black piece. Reconnect the trans clear plate over the top to secure it in place.

 

Disassemble pieces of the light section that sits above.

 

Take another White 15cm Bit Light and thread the connector side through the hole of the black dish piece. Thread the cable all the way through until the LED is right up against the hole as per below.

 

Reconnect pieces which make up this front light

 

 

3.) Reconnect both light sections back to the front of the train starting with the top light and ensure both cables are facing down.

 

 

4.) Take a 6-port Expansion Board and connect the two lights to the ports.

Take the 2x Multi Colour Light Strings and connect these to the next available ports on the expansion board

 

Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect one end to the next available port on the expansion board.

 

Take the Light My Bricks Power Functions Cable or Light My Bricks Powered Up Cable and connect the connector end to the remaining port on the expansion board

 

 

5.) Reconnect the front wheels of the train ensuring the cables for the two front lights are neatly laid in between as per below

 

Using 2x Adhesive Squares, stick the expansion board underneath the train in the below position. Neaten all the cables and secure them underneath the back wheels section.

 

Thread the Power functions cable (LEGO connector side) up through the inside of the train before mounting the expansion board.

 

Connect the power functions cable to power pack and turn the power ON test that all lights connected are working OK.

 

*If you are using the Light My Bricks Powered Up cable (LEGO power functions 2.0), read the below two options on connecting to the Powered Up battery box.

21.) Remove the two lamps from the roof and then disassemble pieces as per below

 

Take a White 15cm Bit light and then place it (Facing down) directly over the trans clear round brick. Ensure the Bit Light is facing down before reconnecting the top plate with clip on top to secure it in place.

 

Repeat this step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the other roof lamp ensuring the bit light is facing down over the trans clear round brick.

 

 

22.) Thread the cable for each light through the top of the roof in between gold bar and side of the roof. Pull the cable all the way down from underneath before reconnecting the lamp back in place to each side.

 

 

23.) Reconnect the roof to the carriage then pull each roof lamp cable down behind the gold bars and then thread them back through to the outside as per below

 

 

24.) Turn the carriage over and then connect the lamp cable from the inside of the carriage to one of the middle ports of the 6-port Expansion Board.

 

Wind the cable around the expansion board a few times to eliminate excess cable. When the board is roughly at the same length of the remaining two cables, connect them to the expansion board.

 

Reconnect the white LEGO pieces ensuring the cables from the lights are laid neatly behind.

 

 

25.) Take the 15cm Connecting cable from the carriage in front and connect this to a spare port on the 6-port expansion board.

 

Use 2x Adhesive Squares to mount the expansion board underneath the back carriage in the below position

 

Turn the carriage over and then connect it to the rest of the train.

 

 

26.) Follow the below images to thread the remaining length of the two multi colour light strings along each side of the carriage.

 

Loop each light string behind the gold bars on the back carriage and then pull each string to the back before threading them back through to the front of the carriage. Thread and secure each light string around sections of the carriage as you see fit.

 

Use your controller or remote app to press ‘accelerate’ to test all the lights installed so far are working OK.

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.




CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.



Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.



WARNING: Incorrectly inserting the connector can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.






OK, Let’s Begin!


Instructions for installing this kit

1.) We will start with installation of a bit light to the lamp on the right side of the building. First remove the lamp and pole with the “Santa’s Workshop” sign and then disassemble pieces as per below:




2.) Take one standard bit light and thread the connector side through the large hole of the trans yellow round brick. Once it has been threaded through, thread it through the bottom of the black LEGO dish.




Pull the cable all the way through from the top until the LED component is right up against the inside of the trans yellow brick, then reconnect the 2 pieces (black dish and trans yellow brick) together.


Reconnect the lamp back to the Santa’s Workshop lamp post and then reconnect everything back to the building.



3.) Hide the cable behind the chimney by first lifting up the surrounding pieces and then reconnecting them over the top of the cable. Ensure the cable is neatly laid between LEGO studs.




4.) We will now install flashing bit lights to the christmas tree which will be positioned to the right of the building. First disconnect one side of the tree with the yellow light and then disassemble pieces as per below:




Take one flashing bit light and place the LED component directly over the dark green stud at the top and ensure the cable is facing the bottom of the tree. Secure it in place by reconnecting the trans yellow round plate directly over the top.



Reconnect the surrounding pieces ensuring the cable is laid in between studs then reconnect this side section back to the christmas tree.



5.) Turn the tree over to the next side with the red light and then disconnect and disassemble pieces as per below:



Take another flashing bit light and place the LED component directly over the light green stud in the middle ensuring the cable is facing the bottom of the tree.


Secure the bit light in place by reconnecting the trans red round plate directly over the top, then reconnect the light green brick next to it ensuring the cable underneath is laid in between studs.


Reconnect this side section with light installed back to the christmas tree


Repeat this step to install another two flashing bit lights to the next two sides of the christmas tree.


6.) You should now have 4 flashing lights installed to the christmas tree and the cables from these lights should be coming out from the base of the tree. Take these cables and twist them around each other, bringing them together to form one large cable. Set the christmas tree aside.


7.) Position Santa’s sleigh and reindeers in front of the workshop, facing toward the right. We will now install a light to Rudolph’s nose.


Remove Rudolph’s nose (brown LEGO stud) and then take one standard bit light and place it directly over the stud. Secure the bit light in place by connecting a trans red round plate (provided in this kit) directly over it, ensuring the cable is facing down.





Remove Rudolph from the leash and lay the bit light cable underneath his head and out his back by removing and reconnecting the following pieces ensuring the cable is neatly laid in between studs. Reconnect Rudolph back to his leash





8.) Turn everything around to the back and then take cables from the Santa’s Workshop lamp, christmas tree, and Rudolph’s nose and connect them to an 8-port expansion port. There are 2 expansion boards in this light kit so we will refer to this one as “expansion board A”. Follow the order to connect the lights as per below:



9.) To eliminate excess cable from Santa’s Workshop lamp, wind it around the expansion board a few times and then secure the expansion board to the base of the building using a self adhesive square as per below:



10.) We will now install lights to the back of Santa’s sleigh. Remove the 2 lamp sections and disassemble pieces as per below:



Take a standard bit light and place it directly over the black stud in the centre of the black lamp base. Secure the light in place by reconnecting the trans yellow brick directly over the top.



Repeat this step to install a second standard bit light to the lamp on the other side, then reconnect both lamps back to the sleigh.


11.) Hide the cables from the bit lights underneath the gold frames by first disconnecting and reconnecting them over the cables as shown below.




Twist the 2 cables around each other bringing them together to form one large cable.


12.) We will now move onto installing lights to the 2 lamps on the left side of the building. First remove these sections and disassemble pieces.



Take another standard bit light and place it directly over the stud of the black plate. Reconnect the trans yellow brick directly over the top and repeat this step to install another bit light to the other lamp.



Reconnect these 2 lamps to the grey telephone piece and then reconnect this back to the side of the building.



13.) We need to hide these 2 cables behind, through the building wall. First lift up surrounding pieces then thread the 2 cables behind. Pull the cables all the way through from the inside of the building and then reconnect the surrounding pieces over the top ensuring the cables are in laid in between studs.






14.) From the inside of the building, lay the two cables underneath the “Santa Needs You” sign, then twist the two cables around each other, bringing them together to form 1 cable.





15.) Let’s move onto installing a flashing light to the Toy Making Machine, which we will position to the left of the building. First remove the trans green piece and discard it as we will be replacing it with a different trans green piece.



Take a flashing bit light and place it directly over the grey stud as per below then secure it in place by connecting the trans green piece (provided in this kit) directly over it.



Lay the cable underneath the 2×4 Lego tile as per below:



16.) Position the Toy Machine to the left of the building with bit light cable facing toward the back, then take this cable along with the cables from the building lamps and sleigh lamps and connect them into another 8-port expansion board (Expansion board B) in the order below.




17.) Wind the cables from the building lamps around the expansion board a few times, then connect a 15cm connecting cable to the port furthest to the left.



18.) Take the LED Strip Light and connect the 15cm cable from expansion board B to the port on the right of the strip light. Take another 15cm connecting cable and connect it to the port on the left.


19.) Connect/Stick this strip light underneath the second floor of Santa’s Workshop in the below position and then connect the other end of the 15cm cable on the left to the next available port on Expansion Board A.



20.) Lay the 15cm cable between expansion boards A and B underneath the desk ensuring the cable is laid neatly in between studs. Stick Expansion board B to the side of the orange base using provided adhesive squares.




21.) Turn the building around back to the front and remove the string of coloured lights that are connecting to the left building’s roof.



22.) Take the multi colour changing light string and place the top of the string on this roof and lay it down in the below positions. Secure the light string in place by connecting white Lego pieces (which came in this kit) over it ensuring you do not connect the pieces directly over the LED components.


23.) Lay the remaining light string over the roof of the next building, securing it in place using more Lego pieces (which came in this kit). Ensure the individual LEDs from the light string are evenly spread out and that the last LED is closest to the chimney.



24.) Lay the end of the light string behind the chimney and connect this into the last available port on Expansion Board A.



Use some tape to tape down the light string cable and 15cm cable to the side of the wall.


25.) Take the battery pack and connect 3x AA batteries into it. Connect the battery cable into a spare port on Expansion Board B and then place the battery pack behind the building.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.


OK, Let’s Begin!


Instructions for installing this kit

1.) We will start with installation of the lights to the street lamps. First remove the two round globes from the street lamp and then disassemble pieces as per below:

2.) Take one bit light and then thread the connector side of the light through the large hole of the trans yellow round brick. Pull the cable through from the other side and then thread it through the large hole of the black plate.

Pull the cable all the way through until the LED component is right up against the inside of the trans yellow brick. Then secure the black plate over the top as shown in example image below.

Reconnect the two clear pieces that make up the lamp bulb and discard the round red plate that connects underneath as we will be needing this. Reconnect the lamp bulb with bit light installed back to the lamp pole.

Repeat the above process to install another bit light to the second street lamp.

3.) Turn the street lamp to the other side and then take the two cables from the lights and twist them around each other so that the two cables come together forming one large cable.

Tuck the cable behind the decoration and then wind the cables around the street lamp pole before connecting them into the first few ports of the 8-port expansion board.

4.) We will now light up the lamp at the front door of the shop. First we need to remove the lamp and black plate underneath it from the shop by carefully lifting up the surrounding bricks above.

Once we have removed this lamp section, disassemble the pieces as per below:

5.) Take another bit light and thread the connector side of the light through the large hole of the trans yellow brick (exactly the same way as we did for the street lamps). Pull the cable all the way through from the other side until the LED is right up against the inside of the trans yellow brick.

6.) Reconnect the black round plate on the top of the trans yellow brick and then reconnect the trans yellow brick back to the black plate below. The bit light cable should be facing toward the back as shown below.

7.) Reconnect this lamp section with bit light installed back to the shop front wall ensuring we first thread the connector end of the cable through to the inside of the shop.

We also need to ensure that the cable is neatly laid in between studs before reconnecting.

8.) Pull the cable through from the inside of the shop and then lay it down behind the train as per below. You can use sticky tape, like what I have done, to secure the cable and prevent it from moving around.

Connect this cable into the next available port on the expansion board. Then wind excess cable around the expansion board.

9.) Next, take the LED strip light and connect the 15cm connecting cable into the right port. Then mount the strip light to the bottom of the second floor, (either directly or onto a 1×6 plate first) under the clock.

Connect the other end of the 15 cm cable to the next available port on the expansion board.

10.) We will now install one of the Multi Colour Changing Light Strings onto the roof, starting with the left side.

First remove the white 2×6 plate on the left side and then lay down the light string (from the end of the cable) by following the green arrows as shown below. Reconnect the white plate over the top ensuring the cable is laid in between studs. Take caution and ensure that we do not connect the plate directly over each LED.

11.) Lay the rest of the cable down on the other side of this roof (following the green arrows below) and secure down by connecting the 2×6 plate on the other side directly over the top of the light string as shown below.

12.) Lay the remaining light string across the roof of the next section and secure it down underneath the 2×4 plate as shown below. The end of the light string cable should now be facing the inside of the Toy Shop.

13.) Pull the end of the cable across the back of the Toy Shop and then down the side before connecting it into the next available port of the expansion board.

14.) Take another Multi Colour Changing Light String and lay it down on the roof of the right section of the shop starting from the left. Follow the green arrows in the images below to ensure the light string is neatly laid in between studs before reconnecting the white 2×10 plates directly over the top.

15.) Wind the remaining length of the light string around the chimney and then secure it in place by threading the end of the cable down behind the cable we just wound.

Connect this light string into the next available port of the expansion board.

16.) We can now secure the expansion board to the left corner of the inside of the Toy Shop by using the self adhesive squares to mount directly onto the floor. Next, neaten up any excess cabling by tucking them around and behind the expansion board.

17.) We can now move onto lighting the Christmas tree. Take the final Multi Colour Changing Light String and thread the end of the string through the hole in the Christmas tree star. Carefully bend the string down after the first light, to hook it in and prevent it from falling out.

18.) Wind the light string evenly around the Christmas tree as per below. The light string should sit neatly between the trans yellow bricks and green plates of the tree.

19.) Once we have wound the light string evenly around the Christmas tree, connect it into the next port on the expansion board.

20.) Lastly, take the Battery Pack and insert 3x AA batteries into it before connecting the battery cable to the last remaining port on the expansion board.

This now completes installation of the Winter Toy Shop LED Lighting Kit.

Turn on and ENJOY!
