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.

Fun facts:

  • 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?!


In exchange for this post and review, I received four complimentary tickets to the LEGO® KidsFest in Detroit, Michigan.   All opinions and statements are my own and were not influenced in any way by the compensation received.  Please see my disclosure for more information.

  1. Oh Wow!!! I wanna go now 🙂 I just asked my husband if he wanted to go, his answer… I’d want to buy everything there. (He’s the biggest kid in the house). Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. I had to refrain from buying stuff for me! LOL. I love the new “Friends” line they have for girls.
