“We started building lego towers, wrote our initials in Legos on the Lego wall, played in the Build A Bear house, had fun on the Bulldozer simulator, built and knocked over the glow in the dark building area, and designed our dream house. The kids were very intrigued by all the different stages of construction. We made a mini-castle using tape and scissors in the cardboard construction area. All the different style building blocks were incredible! And I loved that they had the brand available to see in case you wanted to buy your own. The time-lapse videos of construction and demolition was fun for all ages. My kids asked questions for the rest of the day about how to demolish buildings!” @phoenixwithtwins
