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 start with lighting the water section. First disconnect the following plant, as well as the brown pieces to the right of it (including the dark green plate they sit on top of).

 

Take a Blue 30cm Bit Light and stick it to an Adhesive Square. Stick the Bit Light (LED facing down) underneath the the leaf piece on the left of the white flower. Ensure the cable is laid behind the stems and toward the back of the plant, then reconnect the plant to the set in a new position as shown below.

 

 

2.) With the cable running toward the back, press the cable down at the bottom corner of the plant, ensuring it is laid in between the studs, then reconnect the first lot of brown pieces over the cable.

 

Run the cable to the left, ensuring it is laid in between studs before reconnecting the final brown pieces and green plate over the top.

 

Lay the cable underneath the tree trunk towards the other side as shown below:

 

 

3.) Disconnect the following plant, then using your LEGO removal tool, disconnect the following dark green 1×4 plate and 2×3 plate.

 

Take a Cool White 30cm Bit Light and stick it to another Adhesive Square. Stick the Bit Light (LED facing down) underneath the plant’s tallest leaf, ensuring the cable is laid toward the back before reconnecting the plant to the dark green 1×4 plate. Fold the cable underneath the 1×4 plate, then reconnect the plate to the set.

 

 

4.) Lay the cable in between studs, up towards the other side of the water, then push the cable down into the corner between trans clear and green plate. Take a provided LEGO Trans Clear Plate 1×1 and connect it over the cable with the cable on the left side of the trans clear plate.

 

Take another 2x Trans Clear Plate 1×1 and connect it to the next two studs along the water, ensuring the cable is laid underneath the left side.

 

 

Continue to lay the cable up toward the tree, in between studs, then push the cable down into the following top left corner where the tan studs are. Reconnect the dark green 2×3 plate ensuring you connect the front side of the plate first. It is important that you connect the front side first so that it reduces the risk of snapping the cable.

 

Do NOT forcefully connect the plate completely where the cable is in the top left corner. Doing so will snap the cable. The plate should be completely connected where the right studs are, and partially connected where the left studs are.

 

Bring the cable to the back of the tree, ensuring you hide it underneath the tree trunks as shown below:

 

 

5.) Disconnect the following plant, as well as the following two dark green plates.

 

Take the remaining Blue 30cm Bit Light and stick it to another Adhesive Square. Stick the Bit Light (LED facing down) underneath the plant’s tallest leaf, ensuring the cable is laid toward the back before reconnecting the plant to a new position as shown below:

 

Lay the cable in between studs toward the tree, then push the cable down where the first stud is (behind the plant). Reconnect the dark green 1×2 plate.

 

Lay the cable toward the right as shown below, before reconnecting the dark green 2×3 plate. Bring the cable toward the back of the tree ensuring you tuck it in underneath the tree trunk. Disconnect and reconnect the following mushroom over the cable to secure it down.

 

 

6.) Turn the set around to the back, then bring all the cables together and connect them all to the 8-Port Expansion Board.

 

Take your USB Power Cable and connect it to the end port on the expansion board. Connect the USB Connector to a USB Power Bank or wall adaptor (sold separately) and turn it ON to test the blue and white lights 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.

 

Bring the components and cables around toward the front side of the tree, then tuck all the cables underneath the tree trunk as shown below:

 

 

7.) We will now install a light to the following lamp on the outside of the stair case. First disconnect this lamp at the black clip, then disassemble it as shown below:

 

Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector side through the bottom of the trans clear round brick. Thread the cable through, then carefully bend the Bit Light onto a 90 degree angle so that it is facing directly down.

 

Bring the Bit Light all the way inside the trans clear round brick, then reconnect the black clip through the top as well as the black round plate at the bottom.

 

Important Note – Do NOT forcefully push the black clip all the way through as doing this may break the cable. 

 

 

8.) With the cable on the back side of the lamp, reconnect the lamp to the stair case, then bring the cable through to the right side and secure it behind the following tile:

 

Disconnect the following tile, then bring the cable out from behind and lay it in between studs before reconnecting the tile over the top.

 

Pull out the following step section, then push the cable down behind it before pushing back in the step.

 

Connect the Bit Light cable from the lamp to the next available port on the 8-port expansion board, then turn the USB Power Bank ON to test the lamp is working OK.

 

 

 9.) We will now light up the camp fire. First disconnect the three stick sections, as well as the flame section connected to the clip.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing the right, place it over the following stud. Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided LEGO Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Reconnect all the sections we removed earlier. Because of the trans orange round plate, we will need to reposition the brown clips so they are a little more in line with each other, rather than completely diagonal.

 

Bring the cable over toward the right side of the tree, laying it underneath the tree trunk. Take the Flicker Effects Board and connect the Bit Light to one of the OUT ports.

 

 

10.) We will now install a light to the candle on the bench. Disconnect this section then disassemble it as shown below ensuring you remember to disconnect one of the brown round plates with open stud..

 

Take another White 15cm Bit Light and thread the cable through the top of the following section. Flatten the Bit Light against the top of the stud, then take the brown round plate we disconnect earlier and connect it over the light to secure it in place. Reconnect the candle and flame over the top.

 

Thread the Bit Light cable all the way through the top of the bottom section before reconnecting everything back together. Reconnect the candle section to the table.

 

 

11.) Connect the Bit Light cable to another OUT port on the Flicker Effects Board.

 

Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the IN port on the Flicker Effects Board. Connect the other end of the cable to an available port on the 8-Port Expansion Board nearby. Turn the USB Power Bank ON to test both fire 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, expansion board, or effects board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

12.) Disconnect the USB Power Cable from the 8-Port Expansion Board, then neaten up cabling by grouping all the cables and twisting and folding them together into a neat bunch. Ensure you leave enough cable length for the two flickering bit light cables from the light to the expansion boards.

 

Secure the Bit Light cable from the candle underneath the table by first disconnecting the back tile, laying the cable down in between studs, before reconnecting the tile.

 

 

13.) Carefully disconnect the tree cabin in the front right as well as the tree cabin on the back of the set, then disconnect the following tree trunk panel behind the stair case as shown below.

 

Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to a spare port on the 8-Port Expansion Board. Bring the other end of the cable around the right side of the tree, then up the trunk where we disconnected the panel from. Bring the cable up over the branch and connect it to the far left port on a 12-Port ExpansionBoard. Place the expansion board behind the back tree cabin.

 

 

14.) Disconnect the following grey round plate, then pull out the bottom two steps. Bring the components inside this area behind the small tree stump.

 

Bring the other end of the USB Power Cable we disconnected earlier and thread it through the back of the stair case to reconnect back to the 8-Port Expansion Board. Push the two bottom steps back in to cover up all the components, then reconnect the grey round plate. You can also position a minifigure behind the table to cover up the candle light cable.

 

Hide the 30cm Connecting Cable underneath the tree trunk, then pull the three cables from the water section to the left (to eliminate cable slack around the tree trunks). Push all the cables into the middle space as well as underneath the tree trunk on the left before reconnecting the tree trunk panel we removed earlier. Ensure you reconnect the panel over all the cables.

 

 

15.) Turn the set around to the back and disconnect the following branch section (on the left) with lamp connected to it. Disconnect the lamp from the branch, then disassemble it as shown below:

 

Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector side through the bottom of the trans clear round brick. Thread the cable through, then carefully bend the Bit Light onto a 90 degree angle so that it is facing directly down.

 

Reconnect the black bar through the top and reconnect the black round plate at the bottom.

Important Note – Do NOT forcefully push the black bar all the way through as doing this may break the cable. 

 

 

16.) Reconnect the black bar under the tree branch, then bring the cable behind and thread it through the leaf pieces as shown below. Reconnect the tree branch to the tree, then bring the bit light cable over the branch and connect it to the 12-Port Expansion Board’s far right port. Turn the power ON to test the lamps are working OK.
