My boy will FLIP at LEGO KidsFest

LEGO KidsFest 2012

LEGO KidsFest is coming to Texas, August 31-Sept 2, 2012!!

For my boy’s first Christmas, Hubby and I bought a huge package of LEGO Duplo and since that time, he has been in LOVE with LEGO. Now that he is older, we are thrilled that we can buy LEGO bricks for him in all the awesome sets!! I am over-the-moon excited to take him to LEGO KidsFest at the end of this month and since I haven’t told him about it yet, I’m thinking we might just keep it a secret until we get there!!

Hubby’s family lives in Austin so we are planning to attend the Austin show on August 31 and I want to know if YOU are going too!!

Disclosure Product Review


  1. Darn, nothing in the Chicago area. Many of my friends have went to this and their kids loved it.

    • JanetGoingCrazy says:

      I honestly can’t decide if I want to tell him or surprise him!!

  2. Greta says:

    Looks and sounds like a blast. I spent many an hour building Lego empires as a kid.

    • JanetGoingCrazy says:

      I am not overly creative, but I love attempting to build with my boy. I follow directions fairly well so as long as there is a step by step, then I’m good!

  3. Benjamin is going to have a great time.

    • JanetGoingCrazy says:

      He is going to go NUTS! 🙂

  4. AnnMarie says:

    We bought our tix 5 months ago, my boys are SO excited!
