Once we finally tore them away from the Duplo bricks, we checked out the LEGO® structures coming across Lightning McQueen first. People were swarmed around Lightning. I'm seriously amazed at the structures.The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mural below consists of 1x1 LEGO® Bricks. I couldn't even begin to think about how long or how many people it took to put it together.
Is it weird that I thought, "I gotta take a pic with my boyfriend Johnny." This is the closest I got because again people were swarming this one. I wonder what the secret is. How are the arms not heavy enough that they fall right off? They also had a giant Hagrid from "that one popular movie" as Boyfriend called it. I wanted to take a pic next to it just to show how big it was, but I wasn't about to jump in and take some kid's turn just so I could get a picture. Maybe I should have.
Out of all the stations they had for us to do different activities, my children were most excited by the spots in the reading area.
® bricks and have it put into the display case which is kind of cool that they then become part of the show.
After the boat we made, we headed to the marketplace where B bought the Space Needle he wanted along with three key chains "to keep the boys entertained in the car." Pretty sure he just wanted an excuse to buy them. B bought Boba Fett, Chewbacca and Yoda minifigure key chains. Peanut calls them "Bobo Baff," "Chickabawcka," or "Chigawahgah," and "Yo-ah." We've asked him Chewbacca's name about ten thousand times already.
We skipped the Ninjago and other stations that were a little too old for the boys and headed to the LEGO® City. There were skyscrapers built already and the kids were supposed to build cars and other things to add to the city. When we felt like the boys had enough and we should leave, Bug threw a fit and cried, "I want tracks!"
Overall, Lego KidsFest was fun, and even though they're young, there was still plenty for them to do. It seemed to have enough activities that catered to both boys and girls (we didn't check 'em out but we saw plenty of pink) If we knew what Ninjago and a Chim-something else was the boys probably would have had even more fun.If Lego KidsFest comes to your area, I would definitely suggest taking your children.
