The great majority of kids love Lego building sets. Our kids happen to be big fans of the Lego product mostly because my father-in-law is a huge influence on them and builds elaborate train layouts for them. The other cool thing about Lego is that the brand has pretty much remained the same product as it was when it was first created back in 1932. One could literally take those original pieces and use them interchangeably with today’s Lego building sets. Sure there are some companies that try and copy the Lego design since the patent is no longer valid, but there is nothing like a Lego brick.
Heck, I even still have my dozen or so Lego sets in my basement waiting to one day give my kids. They have so many of their own though, and still growing into the brand, that it has not been the best timing yet.
So when Lego Kidsfest came to Cleveland back in 2011, we jumped at the chance to go. Even with a two year old and 8 month old at the time of Lego Kidsfest, ours kids had a great time. With so many different areas to play with Lego, kids (and adults) of every age can find something to enjoy.
Lego Kidsfest released some of their 2015 dates.
• Arizona (Glendale): February 27–March 1
• Missouri (St Louis): March 20–22
• Tennessee (Nashville): April 17–19
• Texas (Austin): September 4–6
What is weird about the 2015 list of shows is it is substantially less than previous years.
2014: 7 shows
2013: 7 shows
2012: 6 shows
2011: 5 shows
2010: 3 shows
Saving money on tickets to Lego Kidsfest has been becoming more difficult over the years, since the demand for the shows has been high and results in selling out most time slots. The best bet to save a couple bucks or win free tickets is to find local bloggers. Lego partners with bloggers and offers a discount code for a couple bucks off the cost of tickets.
You typically do get some small sets of Lego to take home from the show. Therefore, it might be best to go to one of the earlier time slots to make sure to get some Lego. However, there are certain areas of the show that are built upon by guests as the event goes on. So if you would like to see some impressive builds, it might be better to go towards the end.
