Last night we took our boys to LEGO KidsFest at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI. It was so much fun, LEGO KidsFest is a hands-on, educational, all-ages LEGO extravaganza features millions of LEGO bricks, not to mention lots of construction zones, dozens of life-sized LEGO models and displays, LEGO Friends, LEGO Chima,, LEGO Star Wars, live LEGO Master Builders, and so much more covering three acres of space. My boys were over the moon excited to be there.
My oldest son was very excited about the LEGO brick pile. We got in the entrance and ohhed and ahhed over the amazing LEGO brick creations. I mean WOW, just WOW! How long does it take to build life size characters? Then we headed over to the LEGO Brick Pile. My boys climbed right into the pile and started creating. The were having so much fun digging through LEGO bricks and making creations. We had to drag them away to see the other activities.
Next stop was the LEGO Chima area. My boys have never played with the Chima Speedorz, but they were fascinated with creating and racing their customized Chima Speedorz. It is really fun to pull the ripcord and watch your Speedorz race away. These are such a great LEGO creation. We again had to beg them to move on so we could see all the show.
LEGO Mixles… have you heard of them? Neither had I, but they are really fun and I even tried my skill at creating a cute little Mixel guy. They are so cute and goofy, my boys were loving the different eyeballs, hairs, arms. A lot of interesting pieces to play with to create your own Mixel. When they were finished with their creation they placed them in a special display area. It's not only fun for them to put their Mixel there, but also to see what everyone else has created. So cool!! (My boys are still talking about the Mixel activity, I think a LEGO Mixel pack would make a great boy gift!)
We did finally convince them to leave the Mixel area and try some other LEGO activities. The entire LEGO KidsFest was awesome and we will definitely be heading back next year!
