This years fan convention took place last weekend. It was special affair because this is the 50th anniversary of Lego in Canada! To celebrate the first 50 children (over 3 years old) through the event display doors will received a retired collector series LEGO minifigure.
I can only imagine how excited my guys would be to have an opportunity to attend and view the hundreds of models. Speaking of children, the event appears to attract kids and adults – the young at heart. Children that are too young to understand the "please look but don't touch rule" are considered too young for Brickfete.
Build-a-Brick Clubs are becoming more popular. Last fall, the Admiralty House Museum in Mount Pearl launched a club for children aged 7+ to come together and socialize. The club start at 4:30 and 7:00pm on Fridays and are an hour and a half each.
The Build A Brick Club is not only super fun but also helps every child with socialization skills, creativity skills and without most children knowing, has learning built right in!
