Lego Kidsfest

One of the perks of writing a not getting paid, but every once in a great while you may get to review something. My boys and I have been asked to run some plugs for the upcoming Lego Kidsfest, including reviewing it after attending the first evening. My kids are huge Lego-fanatics and are very excited about checking out the event. Here's the press release for more details:


LEGO Systems, Inc., makers of the world’s leading construction toys and LIFE Marketing & Events today announced that LEGO KidsFest, an educational, hands-on, family expo, will stop at the Minneapolis Convention Center May 20 – 22, 2011. Five Minneapolis sessions are available, with tickets now on sale at

LEGO KidsFest brings 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. Among the many LEGO attractions, families will find:

  • LEGO Model Gallery: 40 life-sized models made entirely from LEGO bricks
  • LEGO Master Builders: building tips, tricks and live demonstrations from the crew who get paid to play
  • Creation Nation: build your own creation to add to a custom map of the U.S.
  • Mystery Mural: build a piece of a giant mural to help reveal the image
  • Race Ramp: 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 Zone: creative free build, play and display area
  • LEGO DUPLO® Jams: toddlers explore building and imagination while rocking out to fun playroom tunes

Based on sell-out attendance in previous markets, advance ticket purchase is strongly encouraged. LEGO KidsFest tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for children and can be purchased online at
