LEGO KidsFest Tips!

As we get ready for LEGO KidsFest 2013 in Louisville I wanted to share the info from last year’s event in Cincinnati!!  We had an amazing time!! I have NEVER seen so many LEGOs!!!!!!
*
1. No outside food or drink was allowed in Cincinnati – keep that in mind as you plan.  Concessions are available on site.  (We were not searched but just keep that in mind)
*
2.  Parking at the Expo Center is $8.00
*
3. We started in the back and worked our way back to the front. It makes somewhat of a loop so that would be a good way to head through as well. The store is in the back so if you don’t have a bag for ‘swag’ you can shop and get one. Today they did have some of last year’s LEGO KidsFest t shirts they were giving away for free.
*
4. Grab swag! There are LEGO KidsClub Magazines and the LEGO Club JR magazines at the front on the right – be sure to sign up to get these delivered to your home for free!!! They have free posters there as well.  Bring a backpack or totebag to keep your goodies in!
*
5. At the Ninjago booth (and many others) you have to wait in a line to ‘get in’ to the ‘corral’ – don’t worry they move you in and out pretty quick.
*
6. Grab Heroica and Friends comic books at their booths. Grab a DUPLO paper hat. My older son LOVED wearing his around all day (and all night after we left! He got soooo much attention at the hotel!)
*
7. T shirts are $15 – $25, the store has pretty regular prices on everything but some items are on sale, keychains are $5, and they have lots of the new mini figure series for $3.
*
8. It is CROWDED. Dress your child in something unique if you can.
*
9. The Theater or Reading Area is a good spot to just relax for a few.
*
10. In the construction zone if you build something cool find a LEGO worker and they will display it in the special cases around the area.
*
11. There is a lost child area so teach your kids to identify LEGO workers so those are the folks they go to for help.  Write your child’s information and your contact info on their arm, a tag on them, or on a disposable bracelet.
*
12. Be sure to stop by the ‘outside vendors’ areas (Cincinnati had reps from the zoo, Reds, aquarium, a local blog, and more) Many had their own giveaways and freebies.
*
13. Jump in on the challenges – a friend’s son won a Spongebob LEGO set for building a crabby patty!!
*
I hope this helps!! Feel free to message me on Facebook with any more questions!!! Have fun guys!!

    Hi! Several of us moms of Lego an kids are wondering if you can really do everything in one session or if its better to buy tickets to two sessions. Please email me to let me know!!!

    We tackled it in one session last year. I’m sure if you have serious LEGO enthusiasts in your group (and plan on breaking for lunch/dinner) two sessions would be fun as well. It would depend on just how much LEGO YOU and your kids can handle 🙂 Enjoy!
