Lego Kidsfest 2014

Wow is all I can say about the Lego Kidsfest. We had not made it to one of them before and since we were going to be home this weekend we decided to give it a shot.  This will be an event we now plan to attend for years to come if its in the area.

If you haven't heard of the Lego Kidsfest it is a Lego party with tons of hands-on activities for kids of all ages.  The cost of the event was $20 for kids ages 3-9 and $22 for adults and this is for one of the 4.5 hour sessions. For the event here in Raleigh they had 5 different sessions you could by tickets for and all of our sessions sold out so if you are interested make sure to grab your tickets early. We had the morning session on Sunday so it was from 9-1:30. We got there right at 9 and stayed until about 1. The boys would have stayed longer but M and I were worn out. LOL

The rest of this post is going to be photo heavy with little descriptions. Just let me know if you have any questions.

We did this one a couple times. You got to design your own vehicle and then race it down the track. The boys had so much fun trying to beat daddy.

There was a whole Lego Duplo area with two huge piles. One of regular Duplo and one with princess Duplo.  C of course picked the princess pile and the two of us spent a lot of time there while M and N went and did other activities. I'm pretty sure C would have sat here and built the whole time if I would have let him.

The big pile of bricks. I can't believe I didn't take an overhead view of this pile but basically its like a dump truck load of Legos dumped on the floor. The kids (and parents) can then sit and build to their hearts content.  We stopped and built a couple different times while we were there.

This is a Lego line we actually do not have any of. I think N is just moving into this age range and we will have to check them out. It is the Lego Hero Factory. He loved designing robots to battle with dads.

And my favorite are all the builds. These are so cool to look at and so fun to pose with.

That is just a sampling of what all they had. There were also areas for Chima, Star Wars, Friends, Lego City, Mixels etc.  If you need a break from all the building they had two different stores, a screen showing videos and also a reading area for some downtime.  There are also some competition areas with different little contests for the kids like tower builds etc. M and N said they did a couple of them and got some goodie bags for participating.  Also if you are a little older (I think the age said 7-12) they have a Master Build class with a real master builder.  Next year we will get in line for that for sure. It looked so cool.

We had a really great time and I would highly recommend this to anyone thinking about it.  I can't wait to go again when it comes through.

Happy building,
