Our family is an all out LEGO family. When US Family Guides asked if I would participate in covering the LEGO Kids Fest in Richmond, I jumped at the chance. I knew Charlie would have a hard time focusing at school on Friday if we told him where we were going so I waited. Thankfully as we pulled I to their king garage, he missed the signs so he had no clue.
We parked the car and got coats back on and then videotaped as he read the tickets.
Now the reaction wasn’t quite what I was expecting, mostly because he wasn’t sure what to expect. When I explained that there would be over 3 acres of Legos to play with and build he turned that bewilderment into shear excitement and was pulling us on to the elevator.
Once inside we followed the queue lines to enter the actual space. There was a great little map for us to follow and it helped us to decide where we were going to go. My mom was with us so she took Rachael off to the Friends section while I took Charlie to the monster fighters. From there we visited creation nation (you grab a green plate, build your own design then have a LEGO person place it in whatever state in the USA you wish.
Then Charlie whopped me in the car build and race. My thought was small would go faster but it didn’t have enough weight to get down the ramp.
Our last fun stop as the Brick pile. Tons of bricks just piled in the middle of the floor. So many bricks that the kids were covering themselves with the bricks.
As we left we stopped in the retail store and grabbed a few sets to build over the weekend. I was a little worried that the prices would be higher since it was a special event BUT that wasn’t the case. The prices were the same as in the regular store except that this one had some items on sale.
Thank you US FamilyGuide and LEGO Kids Fest for providing us with tickets. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
