We got to go on the coolest Friday night date with our kiddos. LEGO® KidsFest was in town and it was an event like no other. LEGO®LEGO EVERYWHERE! Take a look at this picture from the balcony.
My girls are still in the Duplo stage, but they still had a ton of fun things they could do. First thing was the LEGO® Museum. I couldn't believe how realistic these models were. From a distance you couldn't even tell they were made from LEGO® bricks - they looked completely real.
We checked out a few of the "big kid" LEGO® exhibits, but I think they had the most fun at the giant brick pile. At first the brick pile was a bunch of kids politely sitting and building all over the place. Then my kids showed up. They made LEGO® snow angels, tossed some LEGOs in the air (we stopped that right away), got buried, and had a blast. So of course, as my kids are being buried in LEGOs some other kids started the same thing. It was so cute seeing those little faces and nothing else sticking out from all those bricks.
After all that, we were about ready to go, but we saw people walking around with pirate hats on and had to get one for the girls before we went. That's when we found the section dedicated to Duplos. They had regular Duplos with primary colors, Princess Duplos where the girls could build a dream house and play "babies" with the LEGO® people, and they had a Jake and Bucky from Jake and the Neverland Pirates (hence the pirate hats). So of course, we had to let the play there for awhile.
LEGO® KidsFest was so cool because it was more than just a bunch of displays. Yes, they had displays, but in every section the kids could build and play and just be kids. For the older kids they had challenges. I saw one speed tower build, one where they were driving remote controlled cars through an obstacle course, and racing ramps.
If you haven't been to one of these events, I highly recommend trying it out. These events are totally geared towards the kids, it is a KIDSFest, and they will have a blast.
