Lego Kidsfest Review

 Saturday September 1st my mom, dad, Nickalaus, and brother Tyler all went to Lego Kidsfest in Austin, Texas. We went to the second session which started at 3:30p, which had sold out! We already had our tickets. I got them from U.S. Family Guide in return for doing a review and the previous posts about the event. We had never been to Austin, and it was a nice drive. A cute little town as well. The event was at the convention center. We got there and got inside. Nick was so excited to get there!

They had a lot of statues made out of Lego's, which were awesome. They also had display cases with Lego scenes. Nick had to stop and look at each one of them. There was stations set up with different activities at each one. There was one where you build a car to drive down a train track, we did that one. One where you build a car to race down race track, and we did that one as well. My brother, Tyler, built the car for Nick so he could race it. There was a Ninjago Spinjitzu area where you built your guy to battle with. Nick and I battled together. You only had 5 minutes, because so many people were in line to do it. Once you were done, you showed your creation to one of the staff and you got a Ninjago poster. They had a movie area, bounce house, and a couple other activities that Nick didn't really want to do. Then there was a Lego Duplo area for the smaller kids to play. We spent quite a bit of time there. Nick had a lot of fun building Lego's. I sat down and we played together.

Now I'm going to tell you about the things that we were not so pleased about. The area's in which the activities were set up, didn't have enough tables for all of the kids. You had to grab a couple of pieces of each table and hold them in your hands, since there was no where to build. The food vendors were ridiculously expensive. $3.00 for a bottle of water or soda, and $3.50 for a 12 oz. cup of coffee. We paid $4.00, I believe it was, on a pretzel. It was just disappointing, because it's a Lego event. I expected better prices then that. Then the only area for younger kids was the Duplo area. My son is 4, he's not that young. We build Lego sets all the time that aren't the Duplo ones.

Overall we had a good time. Nick had fun and that's really all that matters. Did you go to one of the sessions? What did you think of it? Also, pictures below! Sorry I am a little late posting this, we've had some things happen.

I want to thank U.S. Family Guide and Lego Kidsfest for allowing us to go and throwing the great event.
