Do your kids love LEGO bricks? I know mine do so when we had a chance to check out LEGO KidsFest in Milwaukee, I knew they would go crazy and really enjoy it!
LEGO KidsFest is a multi-city event that is held over three days in each location that features the amazing LEGO bricks that everyone knows and loves. Kids and parents alike are able to mix fun and education in a way that engages the whole family! When we arrived – we were amazed by the sheer number of LEGO bricks- they were EVERYWHERE! In the middle of the massive room there is a pile of LEGO bricks –and not a mini-pile, it is a massive space of LEGO bricks that are trucked in - my girls were making LEGO “angels” and kids everywhere were building mini-cities together.
As you made your way around the room – you encountered incredible feats of LEGO building skills – massive and beautifully built LEGO creations ranging from the new (and old!) Star Wars characters to a variety of superheroes and more!
Of course, when Miss Goose encountered her absolute favorite Star Wars character, Captain Phasma we had to take several pictures with her!
At every turn there more amazing characters, more activities and plenty of places to build and create! One of our favorite activities was the Master Builder show – we were able to meet a Master Builder and one of the Master Builder Apprentices (shout out, LEGO Mike – you rule!). During this short presentation, kids were able to learn how the giant LEGO creations are made and ask questions. They learned a ton and then were released into a special LEGO lab where they could build buildings and then use a set-up to test the durability.
No matter your favorite LEGO type – Ninjago, LEGO Friends, Star Wars, DIMENSIONS, DUPLO, NEXO KNIGHTS and so many more – the LEGO KidsFest has it all! There are even two little shops staffed with energetic LEGO enthusiasts that will help you find just the right set. After a few hours of LEGO building, we were tired, but not quite ready to go – fortunately there was a LEGO lounge where we could relax in some beanbags chairs and read LEGO books! LEGO KidsFest still has two stops this year in Ohio and New England – be sure to plan your visit now!
