It would be boring. A world without LEGOs would be absolutely boring.
If we hadn’t realized that before we attended LEGO KidsFest, we do now!
Designed for kids of all ages, LEGO KidsFest is a huge event dedicated to all things LEGO. There is so much to see and do, from building LEGO cars to race, to playing in a big pile of LEGO bricks, and admiring the characters in the LEGO Model Museum, we had a hard time deciding what we liked best.
LEGO KidsFest also featured some of my kids’ favorite characters…the Disney Princesses, Star Wars, Ninjago and Nexo Knights stations were all there, along with some super cool models.
Some of the highlights of our trip to LEGO KidsFest was having a battle with the Ninjago warriors that we designed, taking some fun photos in the LEGO Friends photo booth, and checking out the amazing LEGO sculptures built by LEGO Master Builders.
My kids were also able to sign up for Club LEGO, which gives them a 2 year-subscription to the LEGO magazine, completely free! And just for signing up that night, they gave each of my kids a free LEGO character to take home. (Hint: you can also win prizes at some of the booths at LEGO KidsFest for participating in certain activities)
As a mom, I appreciated some of the measures that the folks at LEGO KidsFest put together for their visitors’ comfort and safety. Right inside the event was a Lost Parents Zone, where you can go for help in finding lost kids. I pointed out the big, bright sign for my kids when we arrived, telling them that this is where they should go if they got separated from Mom and Dad.
There was also a special Mommy’s Changing Area where you could change a diaper or nurse your baby away from the noisy crowds, and a place to hang your family’s coats so that you didn’t have to lug them around all night.
We had a great time playing at LEGO KidsFest and can’t wait to go back again next year! The event in Harrisburg is over, but LEGO KidsFest is making stops at other locations around the country this year, including:
- Kansas City, MO
- Milwaukee, WI
- Louisville, KY
- Houston, TX, and
- Cleveland, OH
Don’t wait too long to get your tickets, however, because they sell out fast! (Like Harrisburg did!) Check the LEGO KidsFest site for more info on tickets.
