Do you have Lego Bricks in your house? I think most people have. We love lego, we bought loads last Christmas and on Boxing Day me and Graham spent most of the day (and night) building Ninjago Dragons!
The Little Man loves his Minecraft Lego too and the girls also have boxes of Lego Friends. Over on Brick Dave you can find a brilliant article about the Top 10 Ways to Learn with lego, it’s really interesting.
On Thursday we attended Brick Live as Press and had a fantastic day. There is so much to do we were there for hours but the time went so quickly. I’d be here all day if I mentioned everything so I’m just going to mention some of the things we enjoyed. You can take a look at all the rest over on Bricklive.co.uk
When we entered we were greeted by a lovely Halloween themed display.
The Kids were thrilled with the chance to play Lego Dimensions, we really wanted the Green Arrow special character so we had to do several tasks to get cards. Then we swapped our cards with other visitors until we had 20 different ones which we could then use to get a Green Arrow. You also get to keep the cards you collect. Another task was to watch the Dimensions film on the Live stage. The kids were enthralled and excited to watch and so many questions to ask after the demonstration.
There was also a Spooktacular Scooby Scavenger Hunt in which you can find all the Hollywood Stars gathered around the show and win prizes…big clue…the stars are on the floor, not in the lego displays as I first thought. We also got to see the new ‘Lego Scooby Doo Haunted Hollywood’ film which was really good and so funny. I do love a good Lego movie, it’s weird to think of the lego characters as animated actors but in a strange kind of way it really works and adds a whole new dimension to the animation. I’m getting a DVD to watch again, it’s so much fun. The DVD is only £7 to buy and you can get it from the show or Amazon with a free lego figure.
Brick Live is on until tomorrow 30th October, if you don’t manage to attend you can always sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss out next time.
There were some amazing things built from Lego including the worl’s biggest Lego Ship with over one million bricks.
The Little Man love seeing Iron Man’s Hulk Buster, and he was so huge!
We had a fabulous day and will definitely be looking at going next time it’s on.
