LEGO® KidsFest ticket giveaway!!

Do you love LEGO® ‘s? I think as many adults enjoy playing with LEGO® as much as their kids do (except when you step on them with bare feet in the middle of the night!!)

Here are just a few LEGO® fun facts:

  • More than 400 billion LEGO® bricks have been produced since 1949.
  • There are about 62 LEGO® bricks for every one of the world’s 6 billion inhabitants.
  • The LEGO® minifigure represents the world’s largest population of people! Over 4 billion minifigures have been produced in the last 30 years. This is almost 12 times the population of the United States!
  • With a production of about 306 million tires produced a year, the LEGO® group is the largest producer of tires in the world.

Legos end up all over the place in our basement, which is ok, until you step on one. OUCH! We love LEGOS!

Our daughter is just at the right age to start playing with Legos, after having enjoyed the larger Mega Bloks for years. Can’t wait to get her her first Lego set! Definitely going to be the new Legos for Girls with pink and purple bricks… it’s time!

Love love legos… that is all the kids play with when they get home… they make cakes, they make towers and they have fake tea parties using the legos as different pieces/parts of their tea party. They love LEGOS… I have a pic but could’t upload (cause I am at work) I will post it later.
Thanks!

We have the mega blocks and want to graduate to Legos. They drool each time we stop in the Lego store at Park Meadows Mall.

We’re two generations deep in LEGO love in our family. Building cities and robots with no rules, or carefully piecing together Star Wars battleships from the included instructions, we’ve spent many hours without kid fights. And I can’t help but think it helps teach spatial relations, physics, colour theory… and sharing.

What room DON’T I have legos in would be the question…

My son LOVES Legos. He plays with them everyday. He faithfully reads the Lego catalog daily dreaming about all the kits he wants. We can’t imagine a time that he won’t be playing with Legos.

My son is crazy about Legos……….Thats all he talks about. Last year we went to Legoland. And this week in school they have a special kids after school program with Legos. Need I say more…..

My almost 4 year old daughter has been playing with Legos since she was 2 1/2 – she loves them! And it’s been fun to watch her creativity grow! And tickets the Lego fest would be a great birthday present….

My boys love Lego, they are constantly asking me to buy them new sets 🙂 I love seeing their creativity!

My girls love Legos. They create towns for little creatures that they have designed called Night Nights. It’s so creative and endless when you play with Legos.

My son got his first set at 2 and now he’s 9…his passion for Legos has not subsided. He know every character in the Bionicle and Hero Factory series as well as every clone and character in the Star Wars series. My daughter, who’s 5, also loves the new Friends sets from Legos. And both pick visiting Legoland over Disneyland!

My kiddos have oh lets see about 4 full giant sets of legos…. they are 2 and 10 months old…. ha. So we have one who loves to chew them and one who loves to build towers to knock down while the chewer is napping 🙂

Even as teens my kids love legos! We still have a huge bin and they come out often. Their creativity & imagination is only more with building as they have gotten older.

We LOVE legos at our house. Our son just turned 5 so we got him a bunch of lego sets for Christmas. I watching him try to figure out the directions.

Both of my sons love legos. It is one of the few times that they play together and actually don’t fight with each other. The older one will help his younger brother build. Also they love getting their lego magazine in the mail.

My 8 and 6 year old love to build, then take apart, then build, then take apart their Lego sets. It has especially helped my 6 year old with his fine motor skills, improving many aspects of his schooling. I LOVE LEGOS!

I shipped my children’s LEGOs all the way from England when we emmigrated to the USA 23 years ago. Not only have they stood the test of time, but my 5 year old grandson is now playing with them! It is so much fun getting to play with LEGOs all over again!

My son is a lego-maniac and expect he will not want to leave the Kidsfest

Our son was never interested in puzzles even though teachers said it would help him with some specific areas of brain development. Last year he’s gotten interested in Legos, and it has taken the place of puzzles. He loves Legos and we have seen great strides in his development!

When our oldest 3 were 8,3, and 1 we took them to Legoland in the Mall of America and that’s where the love of Lego’s took place. They were so awestruck at everything big and little made out of Lego’s. They’ve continued to love building, creating and using imagination while playing with their creations. It’s something they do together and have great quality time. Only when the 2 yr. old wrecks what they’ve built (usually a car and because he’s trying to drive it around) does fussing happen, but that’s what great about Lego’s…they come apart and you can rebuild it again! 🙂

My kids love Legos. All of their kits seem to wind up in one pile, though, and we can’t tell what goes to what set!

With a son and a daughter, Legos are the one thing that they both love and, more importantly, enjoy together. It’s fun to watch them design and build on their own, build together and build on each other’s designs. Endless possibilities for imaginative, cooperative play – what more could you ask for more?

My son has always loved Legos. He started out with the easy car sets, and now at 11, he creates elaborate spaceships. He’s entering middle school next year and just found out they have a robotics course offered, which allows students to build with…you guessed it: Legos.

My son took Lego Robotics this year and absolutely loved it! And I thought I was cool taking Word Processing when I was in high school! 😉
