Disclosure: Our family received a complimentary visit. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.
Lightning McQueen The whole thing was made of Legos. These kinds of things amaze me.
I had such a busy weekend! It was so busy that I am welcoming Monday with open arms as a chance to get back to routine. We did have some fun though, especially on Sunday when we packed up and headed to Novi, Michigan to see the Lego Kids Fest that was in town.
This was an area blocked off for viewing only.
One of the items inside was from Minecraft, a game my son's school uses for an after school club, and my son was delighted to see the character.
The event went from 9am - 1:30 pm, and it was awesome. The place was bustling with well-mannered kiddos all having a blast playing with, learning about, and looking at Legos.
Never one to miss a photo opp.
And the apple certainly does not fall far from the tree.
There were photo opps. to be created,
Again, all Legos. Can you imagine the amount of time it takes to make these kinds of pictures?
creations from Master Builders to be seen (and they had sessions to sit with a master builder too, if you wanted to sign up),
Dad and little man making vehicles to put on the display shelves
little Lego work stations all around the building,
See the huge Lego pile in the background? It was crowded with kiddos, so my son and I sat on the ground just on the outside of it for quite awhile, and made our creations there.
and a big Lego pile dumped in the middle of the floor for kids to build and roam as they pleased (huge bottles of hand sanitizer were everywhere, and people were encouraged to use them liberally). :)
Sitting in the Duplo pile
There was also a huge Duplo (larger Legos for smaller children) section that my son had earlier dismissed as being for 'babies.' Towards the end of the afternoon when we happened by again, he decided to give the Duplos a try. There were far less children in that section than in the other, and he had a lot of room to work.
See the flying Lego? There were work sections to teach them to levitate Lego bricks (kidding!).
"Look what I made!"
Guess who ended up loving the Duplo area after all? :)
Taking a snooze in the reading area? Nah, he just did that to be funny for a photo opp.
It was a lot of fun, even if it was tiring for some one of us. ;) Hubby was just joking around in the photo, pretending to be asleep, but there was so much to do we really were exhausted (and very happy), by the end of our visit. This little nook for reading Lego books was an awesome idea, and a lot of parents utilized the space to sit down and read to their littles.
Yep, she's made of Legos too. In fact, they had a whole section geared just towards girls. I thought that was an awesome touch.
After the show we stopped at a restaurant on the way home and went through our pictures. The guys asked me what my favorite Lego display was, and I said Cinderella. They scoffed at me. Scoffed, I tell you, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
If there is a Lego Kids Fest coming to your area, I encourage you to go see it. It was really a great, fun visit! Get your tickets early though, they do sell out fast.
