Build! Build! Build! Today was the last day for the LEGO® KidsFest in Denver, and we were there at this sold-out event.* What a blast! I think my older daughter enjoyed it more than my younger one but even the younger one enjoyed the DUPLO® building area. The event was held at the Convention Center in downtown Denver, April 27-29, and the sessions are 4.5 hours long which is plenty of time to build, race, eat, shop, and even visit the booths. In fact, for younger kids, I think it was too much time but for older kids, probably not enough. After all, the sky is the limit on imagination when it comes to building with LEGO® bricks. There were monochromatic areas (same color LEGO® bricks) and plenty of activities including creating art squares, racing cars, and jumping into a pile of DUPLO® or LEGO® bricks and going to town!
All in all, it was a fun event but crowded! We did not wait in any lines to enter, but certainly the tables were jam packed with kiddos and adults alike who were having a blast. The Master Build sessions looked like fun but are for older kids, ages 7 and up. It looked like there were competitions going on, and prizes to be won. There was a marketplace where you could find and buy your favorite LEGO® sets and they were reasonably priced as well. The concessions were, well … concessions and at concession prices but the smoothie booth looked like it was a big hit too. The Convention Center on a Sunday was not tough to get to and parking is on site is $12 but because it was Sunday, you could find plenty of alternate places as well. Friday may have been a different story unless you got there before rush hour but the parking is ample up and down that area in downtown.
Another fun hit was the Bissell, Perfect Sweep Turbo® – wow! It was picking up LEGO® bricks like no one’s business and looked to be great for other cleaning too – it is a sweeper and not a vacuum cleaner but certainly will make those ouchies go away. I step on my kids’ LEGO® or DUPLO® all the time and we are excited to have this new Perfect Sweep Turbo by Bissell. And if you don’t believe my review of the Bissell Perfect Sweep Turbo, read these two moms’ reviews and testimonials and make sure you get yours today! Colorado Moms crowns it the perfect “sticky rice picker upper.” And Moose and Tater exclaims it as “a LEGO mom’s dream!” Right now, with the coupon pictured to the left you can get $5 off on-line off by using the code: sweepLEGO- order online and make those ouchies go away. At our house, my kiddos unplug it and sweep that toy/play area with ease. I love when kids clean up after themselves and this makes cleaning fun!
We had a good time and I would recommend the LEGO® Kids Fest at a venue near you but get your tickets early. The Denver shows were three days, and five sessions total and sold out. Let the building begin….
