My son and I love to build LEGO® sets (note: LEGO is the contraction of two Danish words, “leg godt” which means “play well”). Our current obsession is the LEGO Superheroes series. I’m coveting the new Batman set that includes an Aquaman mini-figure. We’re even more excited about attending the LEGO KidsFest. The national tour stops in Houston, TX at Reliant Park May 17 – 19, 2013. It will be a fun-filled weekend of hands-on LEGO building and experiences. Among the many LEGO attractions, families will find are:

  • LEGO Model Gallery: dozens of life-sized models made entirely from LEGO bricks
  • LEGO Master Model Builders: The crew who get paid to play; there are only 7 in the U.S. and 2 will be at LEGO KidsFest Texas
  • Race Ramps: build your own custom car, then race it down the ramp against friends and family
  • Construction Zones: creative free build, play and display areas
  • LEGO Games Arena: play a new way with the world’s first collection of board games that you build, play and change from LEGO.
  • Creation Nation: A basketball court sized map of the U.S. where unique creations can be built and added to the custom map over the weekend
  • LEGO DUPLO®: There are “so many ways to play” with bricks double the size for smaller hands
  • LEGO Retail & KidsFest Marketplace: LEGO merchandise and official KidsFest tour goods
  • Brick Pile: a gigantic pile full of LEGO bricks for creative play and enjoyment
  • Monochromatic Builds: bricks of a single color to foster group creativity
  • LEGO Friends: fantastic displays that combine lots of LEGO and DUPLO sets
