April 2023 GWPs at the LEGO Store

It is a great time to go shopping at the LEGO® Store! While making the week’s Canadian LEGO® deals post, I came across three gifts-with-purchase (GWPs) currently available online and in store. Additionally, you can score all three if you have $200 CAD worth of items to buy. I have been holding off on major purchases since Mighty Bower last month, waiting for a good GWP haul. While one of the April 2023 GWPs is a rehash of a set from earlier this year, the others are new. If you’re into the Botanical Collection, these offerings might inspire you to shop.


Last month, the GWP was the Easter Basket. I got an early review copy, and I liked it quite a bit. It reminded me of a Botanical Collection set. Well, this month, the LEGO® Group upped the ante on that front. There is a new Flowerpot set that looks even nicer than the Easter Basket. I love learning new techniques for building plants. This GWP appears to have some nice designs and amazing pieces to build up your inventory. I am quite excited about this offering, and I think a trip to the LEGO® Store is in order.

4×4 Off-Road Ambulance

For the second April GWP, we see the return of the 4×4 Off-Road Ambulance. This set was originally offered back in February at the same price threshold we see now. So, if you missed out, now’s your chance to get one. I was not particularly interested in this model the first time around. However, if I can get one with my Flowerpot qualifying purchase, why not?

  • SET #: 40582
  • THEME: City
  • VALUE: $24.99 CAD
  • BRICK COUNT: 162
  • RELEASE DATE: February 10, 2023
  • COST/BRICK: Excellent, it’s free!
  • BRICKS/FIG: 54 (excellent fig count for a set this size)

Spring Fun VIP Add-On Pack

Finally, the latest VIP add-on pack is out. These are not generally enough to make me want to buy something on their own. However, once again, I won’t refuse one if I’m getting other GWPs with it. Additionally, this particular pack includes some interesting bricks, like the printed orange juice containers and lamb. Of course, you need to be a member of the free VIP program to qualify for this GWP.

  • SET #: 40606
  • THEME: VIP Add-On
  • VALUE: $12.99 CAD
  • BRICK COUNT: 128
  • RELEASE DATE: April 10, 2023
  • COST/BRICK: Excellent, it’s free!

On a side note, the internet is clamoring with people who have started to find the new BAM selection. While I have not come across them yet, going in for GWPs is a good time to check. I have a couple of items on my wish list that I have been saving for an occasion like this. Will you pick up the April 2023 GWPs? What do you think of them?
