If you have never had the opportunity to go to LEGO® KidsFest, go get tickets right now. I’ll wait. LEGO® KidsFest is the next best thing to a visit to LEGO® Land! LEGO® KidsFest is traveling around to various cities in the United States and Canada this year bringing the fun of LEGO® bricks to everyone!
I received four complimentary passes to the Friday night session at LEGO® KidsFest in Detroit.
I had the opportunity to take my entire family to LEGO® KidsFest in Detroit last weekend. The twins are just getting into LEGO® bricks. So, it was an awesome experience for them. And me. LEGO® bricks weren’t like that when I was a child!
When you first walk in, you immediately see these absolutely amazing models made with LEGO® bricks. There was The Hulk, Star Wars characters, Batman, Toy Story, Captain Jack Sparrow… and a life size replica of Lightning McQueen. Yeah, I know!
That is only one of the cool things that happens at LEGO® KidsFest! Each section of LEGO® brick themes has a designated area where kids (and adults) can build items to add to the display for others to see! There is also an area to race LEGO® cars, play in a HUGE pile of LEGO® bricks, learn from a Master LEGO® builder, and more! There is also a LEGO® store where you can purchase new and unique LEGO® items, as well as a “reading stop” that is available for a little downtime.
We seriously were in awe by how many LEGO® bricks were in one location. Its breathtaking.
- The LEGO® name is made from the first two letters of the Danish words LEG GODT, which means “play well”
- The LEGO® brick was patented in January 1958. All 2 x 4 LEGO® bricks since have been made to the exact measurements in the patent
- In 2012, 45.7 billion LEGO® bricks were produced at a rate of 5.2 million an hour
- The first minifigure was produced in 1978. Since then, more than 4 billion have been made
- Six eight-stud LEGO® bricks (2 x 4) can be combined 915,103,765 ways
If your kids play with LEGO® bricks, are just getting into LEGO® bricks, or you used to play with LEGO® bricks as a child, I highly suggest you visit the LEGO® KidsFest when it comes to a town near you! It is a fun, creative, and amazing way to spend time with your kids.

Plus, you can get your picture taken with Captain Jack Sparrow. And, how can that be a bad time?!
