LEGO Kidsfest in Novi, MI delivered all that it promised and more! They had many different exhibits, including both activities and displays.
Activities included the monochromatic building stations scattered throughout the hall, where you could start your own creation or add on to an existing one. Also included in the build-your-own category were the LEGO Art Gallery where you could create an art piece to display on their wall, and Creation Nation where you could create your own building to place on a giant map of the United States.Kids also enjoyed the robot battle station and build-a-race-car areas. You could also go head-to-head with others in the Ninjago Battle Arena. One of the most popular activities was the demonstration with a LEGO Master Builder. Kids and Adults both enjoyed the “Giant Pile Of Bricks”, yes, one you could crawl over and in!
There were several displays of LEGO creations set up throughout the hall. Many included landscapes built with sets from available collections (the Ninjago display, for example, used several of the available sets to create one large diorama). Some of the most incredible builds, however, were the life-size display of various figures, including Darth Vader, C3PO, R2D2, Chewbacca, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Hagrid, Captain Jack Sparrow, Indiana Jones, Batman, and kid’s favorite Lightning McQueen!
Anyone needing a chance to catch their breath could do so at one of the LEGO reading areas, featuring a variety of LEGO books for you to check out. Or you could kick back in front of the giant TV and check out clips taken from episodes of LEGO Ninjago. For younger kids, they had a large area dedicated to LEGO Duplo bricks, as well as a reading and coloring area just for them. They also the LEGO Board Games section, offering participants a chance to try their newest game, The Hobbit!
This is the perfect event for a family, from the LEGO Duplo activities for younger kids to the robot battles for older ones (and let’s be honest, the adults are going to try everything to!), they have something special for everyone!
