Lego Build Your World at Crescent Mall

 photo 20130803_161635_zps5b4a7fbf.jpgYesterday, Lego Build Your World competition opened at the ground floor of Crescent Mall.

So from August 7 to 11, 2013, children can come over to build whatever is it they desire using Lego blocks and enter their creation in the competition.

All blocks are provided by Lego of course and with the turnout yesterday, I wonder how Lego can keep up with the demand for blocks for the next 4 more days.

There are two areas for children to play. There’s the Duplo area for much younger kids and those not entering the competition:

Although I saw lots of adults on the side helping their kids. 😛 I was pretty miffed! I tried to plead my case. Hello? I’m a kid at heart!!! I love Lego! LOL.

 photo 20130807_181854_zpsb8ac0056.jpgThere were some Lego sculptures on display as well and discounts on Lego items being sold from 30-50% off.
