We had such a blast at the LEGO® KidsFest Bay Area!
Monkey said his favorite part was seeing Lightnight McQueen made from LEGO bricks.
This boy's favorite color is still green, and he was super excited to see the Hulk!
Oh, the fabulous LEGO pile!
I had told the kids ahead of time to expect the giant LEGO brick pile and they couldn't wait to get there! When we finally came to it, they jumped right in, rolling, burying themselves, and finally settling in to build towers. They probably would be there still if I hadn't eventually dragged them off to see what else there was to play with.
They now have LEGO bricks specifically for girls!
It's about time!
After a while the kids did get tired and I was thrilled that they had a 'Reading Rest Stop'!
The kids found it on their own, grabbed a book each, and settled into bean bags for a much needed break. I only wish the area had been bigger as there were many looking for more bags to sit in.
Their was a snack bar and the prices weren't bad. I was impressed that they had a free organic juice bar for the kids from Honest Kids, with a few flavors to choose from.
Creation Nation was a big hit!
The last thing the kids did was to each make a building to put in Creation Nation, which was a giant map of the U.S. taped onto the floor. We were all bummed that we couldn't go in, only look from the sidelines, but we understood. No one wants their creations ruined.
When finished with their buildings, the kids got to choose where on the map they would like their building to go.
It was fun seeing how proud they were, handing their masterpiece over and watching the staff members walk through the country like a giant to set their building down in the right spot.
I wish we could have seen it all filled in!
There was tons more to see and do! Many more models, race ramps to race LEGO cars you built against others there, contests, raffle, Master Builder shows, LEGO Art Gallery, LEGO City, and of course a store. There were sections with LEGO characters from popular video games, or maybe TV shows; Chima, Ninjago, and Hero factory. We don't do a lot of TV or video gaming, so were unfamiliar with them, but that didn't dampen the fun!
