LEGO® Ninja says “KidsFest Coming to Portland!” #Giveaway

As a parent it is pretty much a right of passage when we get to post on our social media networks, “Went downstairs to get a drink of water. Didn’t turn the lights on and just stepped on a !#@$% LEGO® brick!”

But regardless of how many times we may step on those bricks and regardless of how many times we threaten to throw them away when we do, we keep them around.. why?? Because we love them just as much as the kids!

LEGO is just one of those things that transcends all generations and that’s why it’s so exciting that the LEGO KidsFest is coming to Portland October 11th through the 13th!

What better way to spend time with your kids than this hands-on LEGO extravaganza! The LEGO KidsFest tour features MILLIONS of LEGO bricks, dozens of life-sized LEGO models and displays, live LEGO Master Builders and tons of other great LEGO fun covering approximately THREE acres of space!

I think I’m most looking forward to the Construction Zones and the gigantic brick pile where the kids and I can get our build on.

Do your kids have a favorite LEGO set? If they do, chances are there will be a special area at KidsFest that features it! My daughter is really into the LEGO Friends so she’s excited to see the area with all the sets and characters.

In addition to these great activities there will also be:

  • Creation Nation – where you can build your own creation to add to a custom map of the U.S.
  • Race Ramps – build your own custom car then race it down the ramp against you family and friends!
  • LEGO Games Arena – roll the dice to play LEGO board games.
  • LEGO Retail and KidsFest Marketplace – where you can purchase LEGO merchandise and official KidsFest tour goods.

So, I guess I should get to some logistics about the event. What makes this event so cool is there are a limited amount of tickets available for each session. This means you can’t just show up at any time to get in, chances are the session you arrive for will be sold out. (The event has sold out in years past and across the nation.) Each session offers the same exhibits and activities and there are five sessions total beginning Friday afternoon at 4pm. Tickets are $19 for kids and $21 for adults. Now, before you choke on the price think of the amazing experience this will be! You kids (and you) will get to learn from Master LEGO Builders. This are the folks who create those amazing displays you may have see, you know, like the one of the Statue of Liberty?

To purchase your tickets visit:

You’ve read this much so I feel like you deserve a little something.

I made a little video for you –

That’s right!!

Thanks to LEGO KidsFest, I have two tickets that I get to give to one of my readers to go the Friday session on October 11th from 4pm to 8:30pm – this would be a great parent/child date!

  1. OMGoodness I loved your video!! That was just awesome!!

    I don’t have a favorite memory for me but a couple years ago we did a full Lego Christmas! Zarek got his first set of Duplos and Zane got his first set of legos. It was so much fun.

  4. We just started building with lego’s. so far the best memory is watching my oldest sit for about 2 hours and putting her friends horse barn together while helping her sister do one.

  5. My favorite has been recent. My son had just gotten his Legos back after a time out. He immediately built a Lego sculpture, Last Man Standing! I laughed.

  6. I didn’t play much with Legos when I was younger… a little bit here and there with my brothers but it wasn’t a huge thing. My husband however still LOVES Legos. He can’t wait for our little guy to be old enough to play with them just so he can too. We’d love to go to the Lego fest with Hunter!

  7. I don’t have even one memory as a kid building Legos. I mostly was just into my dolls, etc. But I remember when I married my husband that his sister’s sons were REALLY into Legos. They were both around the pre-teen age and for Christmas and birthdays they’d get these big elaborate sets where they’d build these fancy things like a Star Wars ship, or some kind of figure. The youngest continued getting these for quite a few years. Later when that same youngest nephew was home from the Army where he’s a paratrooper and I was at his mom’s house with my kids his mom suggested that my boys (then 3 & 5) would maybe like to play with his Legos. He had kept them all in the boxes they came in (though well played with)! He had to be absolutely cajoled into letting them play with his old toys. Even more than 10 years later, he still loved his Legos and didn’t want any of the pieces lost or mangled!

    My oldest is going to be turning 8 this year and we’re looking forward to getting him one of the big elaborate sets for Christmas, hoping that my nephew will take the time to sit down and help him put it together. I can just see the photos from that now! Both of my kids are really into Lego Ninjago right now, so I can imagine the excitement they’d have on receiving something to do with that program.

    My nephew is getting out of the Army this Fall and will be coming home to go to college. Maybe if we win the tickets, he might even want to take my oldest son to Legofest!

    my both boys cant wait to go there.. thank you soo much.. they been hard working be good behave and do their homework.. they looking forward to go. there.. both loveStar war and CARS.. they looking forward to see how they build it.. smile! thank you for giveaway

  9. I actually cursed at my husband when he bought the kids the first lego set. “Are you *&*%^&%$ kidding me? We’ll have LEGOs all over the house!!”
    But more than any other activity, LEGOs keep my kids playing TOGETHER. They love building stuff together and being creative. So I’m over it. 🙂

  10. My favorite Lego memory was when I was finally able to build one of the bigger sets by myself. I was so happy.

  11. Rain Madrone says:

    I had a lego castle when I was a boy that was one of my favorite toys of all time, and now I get to build with my two boys!

    watching my husband play legos on the floor with our son

  13. Nicole Hanset says:

    I love watching my kids try making towers and houses with legos. I especially like watching them try making patterns with the different colors available.

  14. Laurie Rogers-Green says:

    My son has sensory issues and fine motor issues. Legos have given him an activity that he LOVES doing and helps him improve his skills. They have made a world of difference.

  15. Legos span the age gap, the gender gap, anything! They are really for anyone and everyone to explore their surroundings and make a new thing! They are amazing!

  16. We hit up LEGOLand last October. It was AWESOME. Both my hubby and I have been playing with LEGO since we were children, and my hubby had 2 LARGE totes of them to pass down to my son when he got old enough. Our lives are surrounded by LEGO.

  17. Cassandra Raney says:

    Legos have been a huge blessing for my children as it is something they ALL love – boys and girls. My oldest has autism and communication is difficult. Lego building allows him to communicate through play with his siblings. Thankful.

  18. We would love to win. Thanks for the chance.

  19. I girls are young. 2 and 4. THey only have a few leggos but they love playing with them!

  20. I remember being a young boy of 7 raking through my collective box of lego pieces for hours with my friends in the neighborhood. Back then, there were no marvel, star wars or movie themed collections, so we had to “engineer” our own x-wing fighters, batmobiles, and Back to the Future Deloreans. The familiar “raking” sound is now made by my 7 and 3 year old who spend hours “engineering” their own “transformers” and mini ships. Thank you Lego and thank you Mad hatter mom for giving all us “kids” the opportunity to have fun!

  21. rebecca uyemura says:

    Okay…..i didn’t play with LEGOs but my brother and son and daughter did AND STILL DO! My son is now 30 and daughter is 27 and brother is 42. Every single year we get together for the holiday and out my son pulls whats probably a couple thousand dollars worth of legos he’s acquired over his life. HOURS are spent constructing cities, spaceships etc. I have wonderful memories of years past from their childhood adulthood. They even all get advent calendars each year. Now I think its time for my grand daughter to get involved and she is seven. What a great place to start.

  22. All of my boys (hubby included) are HUMONGOUS LEGO fans! Favorite memory was the Xmas that Santa brought the Millenium Falcon to my son and the look on his face when he saw it. 🙂

  23. My 6 year old grandson is crazy about this. After seeing the video, I know he’d love this.

  24. Mishel Gutierrez says:

    I love Legos, not nearly as much as my 3 and 6 year old boys or husband (that asked for Legos for Christmas), but any activity that allows Mommy to sleep in for an extra hour while the boys are entertained, like Lego Ninjago did this morning is high on my favorite list. 🙂

  25. My favorite memory is definitely taking my brothers legos and using them for my barbies food.
