Last weekend was the LEGO kids fest in Phoenix. We attended with our kids and let me tell you it was a blast!! We will for sure try to go every time they are in the area. It was our first time at a LEGO kids fest so we weren't really sure what to expect. Let me just say it was totally worth going to! There were fun displays to look at and take your picture by (see pictures) and MILLIONS (maybe more) LEGO's for kids to build things with. They had multiple challenge areas where 5-6 people would group up, there would be about 8 or so groups and then you had to work as a team to build something in a limited amount of time. Those were SO fun! Some had longer lines, but they were all worth it and fun, and once it was over they gave you a FREE pack of LEGO's as you left the challenge! You could do any challenge as many times as you want- so needless to say my kids came home with quite a few packs of LEGOs.
We're planning on going to Legoland in a couple weeks on our family vacation so I was excited to see they had a booth to promote it. I was able to get a theme park map and talk to one of the workers about where to find discount coupons etc. He also gave me a little inside scoop on what new things will be there when we visit! Then as if things couldn't get better- the back of the package of each of the free LEGO kits they gave my kids had a coupon for Buy one adult get a kid free for Legoland! Perfect! Just what we needed!
They had concessions there- but as with most events it was extremely expensive. I was kicking myself for not bringing a water bottle once I saw the $3/bottle price.
There were lots of places to sit for parents too- I loved that! Because most things to do kept the kids busy playing or waiting in line for awhile so it was nice to be able to sit down close by and watch them.
They had a special mother's room for nursing and changing diapers- but when I went to nurse my baby the room stunk of poopy diapers and there were 2 hard uncomfortable folding chairs to nurse in. I ended up nursing her again later in a corner by the concessions because the chairs were more comfortable and it didn't stink.
My kids had a blast and are still talking about it! They wanted to go back the next day!
If you have a LEGO kids fest coming to your area I highly recommend you go!
