Days before the event, we told Evie that she has a big surprise coming on Saturday. We bought her a Lego Friends shirt to match the occasion. She has been building Lego Friends with her Dada and she's hooked into it.
We had to let her close her eyes on our way to the entrance of the big surprise, which she did, but opening her eyes a few times. The first gigantic thing she (we) saw that is made out of Legos was Hulk. The look on her face was kind of surprise but shy. It was priceless.
Giant Superheroes, Wizards, Movie & TV Characters, Etc...
You will be impressed of the enormous popular movie and TV characters displayed made out of Legos. From DC Comics characters to Star Wars and more. Everyone went crazy with taking pictures with each of them, and the Pritchards were no exception. My husband loves Batman and Star Wars, so we made sure we took pictures of him with her favorites. I am bummed that we forgot to take a picture of and with monstrous Hulk, specially that it's the first ever life-size popular character made of Legos that Evie saw. But, there is always next time.
Our Favorite Stations
LEGO Model Museum - This is perhaps the most popular. People can't get enough of taking pictures with the life-size models (so are we of course). We also took pictures of the miniature ones like the Lone Ranger setting, Pirates of the Caribbean, and more.
Reading Rest Stop - I am so appreciative that the LEGO organizers have thought of this area. It was such a breeze getting a rest with my two girls after all the walking and doing LEGO activities for hours. When we were at the Art Gallery, I tried to create my own art, but Fi became impatient on the stroller. The Reading Rest Stop was located just beside where we were, so I decided to stop doing my art and proceeded to the area that made my little one up and about.
My Wish for the Next LEGO KidsFest
- LEGO Master Builder at Work - I am pretty sure that LEGO KidsFest will be back in Phoenix. What I want my family to see next time? I want to see an actual LEGO master builder build a life-sized LEGO model. I do not know how long will it take to create one, but it should be something that can be finished within the days they do the event. I do not care if I only see half of it done while my family are there. I just want to see their mastery.
- Prizes for Adults - It's a little disappointing that adults don't get prizes at the LEGO Challenge Zone. Come on LEGO! Adults love prizes too! :)
