Even so, all opinions are my own and a positive review was NOT required.

(First of all, let me apologize profusely for the quality of the photos. My phone has an awful camera, but it’s the only one we have right now.)

Before we entered the Indiana Convention Center building for the LEGO® KidsFest, we didn’t know exactly what to expect, other than fun!
When we entered the giant room, it was overwhelming.
So many people.
So much noise.
So many LEGO® bricks…
So little time!
There were sections blocked off to separate different themes, including
DUPLO®
Mixels®
Ninjago®
Chima®
LEGO® City
LEGO® Mindstorms
LEGO® Friends
LEGO® Movie
Star Wars
Marvel
DC Comics
Hero Factory
Disney
Lord of the Rings
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

 

 

 

 

 

Also there were other sections for LEGO® Challenges, LEGO® Competitions, an Art Gallery, LEGO® video games to play, LEGO® Master Builders had speaking sessions, The LEGO® Movie was playing, LEGO® sets were able to be purchased, the LEGO® magazine was there for signing up, race ramps, Creation Nation, and there was the LEGO® Brick pile – just like it sounds, a huge pile of bricks to play in.

There were large, detailed “set-ups” situated throughout. There were bigger-than-life-sized LEGO® creations in every theme. Some of them were not in a designated area. I just remembered that I never got any pics of the giant Spiderman! He’s Jace’s favorite. There was always a long line in front of him.

The whole experience was amazing. As we were leaving, Jeremiah said his life is now complete. LOL. 😀 I am so thankful for USFamilyGuide for the tickets and for my mom, who won the Giveaway tickets for giving them to us so all 6 of us could go.

There were only two things I would change: 1) I would go in with a plan of what to see and a time limit on each section, so we could see everything. I feel like we spent too much time on some things and not enough time on others, and some sections we didn’t even get to see at all–including Mindstorms, which bummed us all out. 2) I would find the cheapest and closest parking area beforehand. We drove around the circle several times before finding a spot, and it ended up costing us $30 for the evening! So much for the fun being free!

I doubt we will ever be able to do this again, so I feel very blessed to have been able to go. I think there are still a few tickets left for Sunday, Nov. 9 as well as Friday, Nov. 14. I hear they are selling out REALLY quickly though, and it’s taking a huge chance to try to buy tickets at the event (not to mention, I can’t imagine the frustration of parking and walking all that way and finding out it’s sold out! OUCH!).

If you go, I’d love to hear about it and see photos! 🙂

God bless,
Jenn

  1. Jenn,
    My kids adore Legos! What a fun activity. But I agree it is overwhelming- we stopped in and saw a Lego convention last year and we were bug eyed and over stimulated the whole time! It was a blast!
    Love your site!

    1. I would do it again in a heartbeat though, as overwhelming as it was! LOL.
      LEGOs are the best toys ever made. (Says this boymom!)
