We recently were given the opportunity to attend the LEGO KidsFest here in Michigan, where we got to spend several hours checking out all kinds of neat LEGO statues and much more! Other than pictures I’ve seen of the event and TV coverage I had no idea what to expect other than to see a lot of LEGOs.
When we arrived I was a little overwhelmed. There were so many people, so many different LEGO stands and it was just spectacular! We split off into two groups; I walked around with Xavier in his stroller and my husband took off with Thaddeus to explore! After walking around, taking pictures of many things, and getting a quick view of everything I went to find the other two.
Thaddeus didn’t want to leave, but what kid really would want to leave millions and millions of LEGOs? Xavier enjoyed playing in the LEGO area for the little guys, but he was ready to go way before Thaddeus was.
As for me. Well, let’s just say that after 35+ years of living in Michigan you’d think that I’d be used to the rudeness of the people 🙁 I was very disappointed with the lack of respect from the other people there (this isn’t LEGOs or the facilities fault). Several people walked right into Xavier’s stroller, cut us off, or jumped in front of us forcing us to not be able to get many of the pictures we wanted. It was also impossible to get into several of the stands, even the store areas because it was just too crowded.
We did have a good time but I think they should consider some changes. I think instead of them having 2 events each day they should limit the number of attendants to each event by about half of what they allowed and add more events. Maybe instead of 3-4 hours per event make them 1-2 hours with half the people so we those attending can actually get into all the stands, go to the stores, and walk with ease.
You can see more pictures we took here in my Wordless Wednesday post!
Overall, we would definitely do it again because it was fun for the boys (and that’s all that matters), but it’ll be nice to do it without a stroller!
