our day at the Lego Brick Expo

Greetings all,
I should explain what my idea of giving myself the weekend off really means . . . spending 4 hours on Saturday collecting & distributing party goers . . . & Sunday involved 4 hours at the Lego Brick Expo in Canberra (including 2 hours in the queue).  Best $10 entry fee i've ever spent . . . to see the most incredible small scale Lego & smiles on my Lego loving children's faces.
There was a theatre set up with Lego short movies . . . 
 the Blocksford Music Festival . . .
 detailed cities complete with transport . . .
 space Lego . . .
 & kryogenetics??
 I love this family lunch scene, complete with roast chicken . . .
 this amazing street scape with detailed trees & flowers . . .
 police station . . .
 a taste of Europe . . .
 a farm . . .
 an amazing mountain with various cabins & railways . . .
 good old cowboys & indians . . .
with such detail, humour & talent, it was well worth the wait!!
I'll be back tomorrow with some more fun Lego - think quirky Legomen, just too much for one post.  There will also be a Lego giveaway coming up soon, so be sure to follow now so you don't miss it.  Love Posie

Oh wow, my son would have loved that! Is it a yearly event? Perhaps we will have to plan a Canberra weekend next year so we can attend.

We're going to Legoland later this year and I can't wait. My boy loves Lego - a far cry from his reaction to his first Lego gift!

One look at the queue on Sunday afternoon turned us away pretty quickly. Looks awesome - wish I had the time & patience to have lined up.

How cool is that! I have a couple of nephews that would just love going to visit something like that. As a child a remember going to Lego Land at the top of the Myer's Centre, seeing the buildings made out of Lego it was so much fun. Glad you had a good weekend. xo

My little guy would absolutely love this...was it a local thing or are they taking it on tour around the country do you know?

Not sure if it's a national tour or what, but it was amazing!! I only heard about it on the radio in a tiny group community ad, so lucky or we would have missed it. Love Posie

Wow - my girls would love that (and so would I!).

Ooo, how fun! I would love to attend something like this. It's amazing what people can make given a million tiny blocks in various shapes and sizes :)
