We had such a blast at the LEGO® KidsFest Bay Area!
Monkey said his favorite part was seeing Lightnight McQueen made from LEGO bricks.
This boy’s favorite color is still green, and he was super excited to see the Hulk!
Oh, the fabulous LEGO pile!
I had told the kids ahead of time to expect the giant LEGO brick pile and they couldn’t wait to get there! When we finally came to it, they jumped right in, rolling, burying themselves, and finally settling in to build towers. They probably would be there still if I hadn’t eventually dragged them off to see what else there was to play with.
They now have LEGO bricks specifically for girls!
It’s about time!
loved the girliest one, but I was happy to see a giant soccer girl and
karate girl as well.
much fun playing with the little houses and switching the LEGO girls’
hair from brown to blond to black.
She had a great time with this slide and pool set up.
After a while the kids did get tired and I was thrilled that they had a ‘Reading Rest Stop’!
The kids found it on their own, grabbed a book each, and settled into bean bags for a much needed break. I only wish the area had been bigger as there were many looking for more bags to sit in.
Their was a snack bar and the prices weren’t bad. I was impressed that they had a free organic juice bar for the kids from Honest Kids, with a few flavors to choose from.
Creation Nation was a big hit!
The last thing the kids did was to each make a building to put in Creation Nation, which was a giant map of the U.S. taped onto the floor. We were all bummed that we couldn’t go in, only look from the sidelines, but we understood. No one wants their creations ruined.
When finished with their buildings, the kids got to choose where on the map they would like their building to go.
was fun seeing how proud they were, handing their masterpiece over and
watching the staff members walk through the country like a giant to set
their building down in the right spot.
I wish we could have seen it all filled in!
There was tons more to see and do! Many more models, race ramps to race LEGO cars you built against others there, contests, raffle, Master Builder shows, LEGO Art Gallery, LEGO City, and of course a store. There were sections with LEGO characters from popular video games, or maybe TV shows; Chima, Ninjago, and Hero factory. We don’t do a lot of TV or video gaming, so were unfamiliar with them, but that didn’t dampen the fun!
We didn’t have time to see everything, there was so much! But we definitely enjoyed every second of it. Every single one of us! My husband and I thrilled in watching our kids play and learn. And loved playing and learning right along with them, too!

Impressive list of works, I'm very happy to read this kind of blog.
From the emptiness of the US map, it looks like you maybe went the first day. We went the second day, and apparently kids had pocketed a LOT of LEGOs from different areas. For example, in the Ninjago area, there was nary a minifigure to be found. Same thing in the City area. I was disappointed that they didn't actively discourage the removal of LEGOs from an area because it left less for the later attendees to play with. Or, if they expected that kids would make off with stuff, then they should have not put it all out at once, but saved some to put out before each session.
