Calling all LEGO enthusiasts!! Brick Clickers across the state will be glad to know that the LEGO KidsFest, a giant traveling LEGO expo, is headed to Michigan!  The LEGO KidsFest will be at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi on October 12th through the 14th.   We are super excited to be hosting a ticket giveaway – please see the bottom of this article for details.

I just so happen to have a huge LEGO fan in my house – my eight year old son.  First he builds the set according to the directions. He then tears it apart and builds all kinds of his own original designs.  He can play with them for hours.  We found one of the older Power Miner sets over the summer and he had to have it – he saved up his money and then bought it.  He is really excited about going to the show.

The expo 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 Ninjago and LEGO Games, group builds such as Creation Nation, live LEGO Master Builders, and so much more covering three acres of space!  It’s intended for children of all ages and skill levels.

Here are some of the fun things planned for the event:

  • LEGO Model Gallery: 40 life-sized models made entirely from LEGO bricks
  • LEGO Master Builders: live demonstrations and activities from the crew who get paid to play
  • Creation Nation: build your own creation to add to a custom map of the U.S.
  • Race Ramps: build your own custom car, then race it down the ramp against friends and family
  • LEGO Games Arena: roll the dice to play LEGO board games
  • Construction Zones: creative free build, play and display areas
  • LEGO DUPLO®: younger visitors can explore imagination through building
  • LEGO Retail and KidsFest Marketplace: purchase LEGO merchandise and official KidsFest tour goods
  • Brick Pile: a gigantic pile full of LEGO bricks for creative play and enjoyment
  • Monochromatic Builds: bricks of a single color to foster group creativity
  • Brickscapes: fantastic displays that combine lots of LEGO and DUPLO sets

Five identical Sessions are available from Friday afternoon (Oct 12th) through Sunday the 14th.  You purchase tickets for a specific session. Tickets are $18 for kids and $20 for adults.

My son loves the super heroes, Star Wars and Lego city. Somehow they’ve all been combined and Batman is hanging from my kitchen cabinet for the day. I think he can do it though, he is Batman, afterall.

My son is engrossed in the Lego Crazy Action Contraptions. He likes building “contraptions” that shoot ping pong balls or are powered by balloons.

My two very young grand daughters LOVE the new Friends series, especially the horse trailer and vehicle. The pink/purple colors are so fun to build for the girls. My grandson loves all the legos but upon visiting the lego store in Chicago he fell in love with the Ninjago series, all of them are his mission to collect. Can’t wait to see the upcoming Kidsfest Lego event in Novi!!!!!
