Smalls absolutely loves LEGO®. Maybe more than he loves me. And that’s saying a lot. The kid always picks LEGO brick sets as prizes when he visits Texas Children’s Hematology Clinic after his poke and Pentamidine. I’m pretty sure that we have enough LEGO bricks to build a replica of NYC….
At least he comes by it naturally! My brothers and I used to play with LEGO bricks for hours upon hours. We built entire cities in our rooms. It was a fun time, and I am excited for my boys to carry on that tradition.
So when I heard about LEGO KidsFest Austin this summer (which, admittedly, is a bit of a drive, but one of my favorite cities!), I knew that I had to take him. Last year, he wasn’t able to celebrate his birthday beyond a few cupcakes. I want this year to be special.
From September 4-6, 2015, LEGO KidsFest will bring all of the creative hands-on, minds-on fun of LEGO building and experiences together in one activity-and entertainment-packed family event for children of all ages, and builders of all skills and interests.
If you’ve never been to a LEGO exhibit, you’re seriously missing out. At LEGO KidsFest, there are quite literally three whole acres of LEGO themes:
- LEGO Mindstorms
- LEGO Movie
- LEGO Disney Princess
- The Mixels
- LEGO Superheros
As if that weren’t enough, there are lots of things to DO, as well:
- LEGO Model Museum (we got to see a version of this at the Henry Ford and it was AMAZING!)
- Race Ramps
- Creation Nation
- Construction Zone
- LEGO DUPLO®
- The Big Brick Pile
- LEGO Ninjago
LEGO KidsFest Austin is going to be hosted at the Austin Convention Center, which is a great space:
Austin Convention Center

Austin, TX 78701-4121
