If you’re like me, you grew up playing with LEGO bricks, they let your imagination grow – you could make people, animals and buildings out of the bricks. Some actually grow up to become LEGO master builders – and that’s where the imagination really comes in!
This was the first time LEGO Kidsfest came to Detroit – and we showed them just how much we love their products – we sold out every session!
Now for kids this is pretty cool, but you could watch the adults trying to figure out how they were assembled and put together. Each one done from LEGO bricks, it’s amazing the results that can be achieved from bricks that you usually think of as square or rectangles!
LEGO Kidsfest was unlike any other show I had been to before, they encourage you to build and play while you’re there. You could see adults and children working together in the different piles of LEGO bricks. There were also different stations of just Monochromatic bricks that you could create in. You could see an area full of pink houses, or just blue buildings while kids and adults built whatever they could imagine together.
Due to the amount of people there, kids did have to be patient and wait their turn to play with certain toys. We had this problem with the train set since my nephew eyes locked on it part way through the show. He did get his turn and eventually we had to pull him away so other kids could get their turn. That was probably the biggest hit for him – that and the Bissell Vacuums…
We had a fantastic time at LEGO Kidsfest, and all left tired and inspired by some of the amazing designs. It was neat to see what can be built from LEGO bricks, but it was even cooler to see kids of all ages playing together. You could tell the LEGO lovers who brought their kids to introduce a new generation to LEGO bricks and the fun you can have with them!
LEGO Kidsfest sold out here in Detroit, but hopefully they’ll be making it back next year! This is something everyone should experience at least once!
