Yesterday, 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:
At the other side of the mall, is the competition floor with chairs around for adults to watch.
Kids can haul blocks from the Lego block pit with the boxes provided and move to a spot on the competition floor.
I think my son was overwhelmed by the whole thing. He couldn’t decide whether to make a house or a car.
And honestly, it was quite difficult digging through the whole thing and finding the parts you needed.
Everything was so tempting though. I wanted to take home a couple of these plates.
At first, I was helping Sam because we didn’t actually think of entering the competition. Until I got booted off. 😛 No adults allowed to help. 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.
So I just decided to check out the entries.
There were a lot already just for the first day. So imagine when you come back on Saturday.
I think they failed to communicate the requirements and criteria for judging. Because on the 5th day, I’m pretty sure they’ll run out of blocks.
There were some Lego sculptures on display as well and discounts on Lego items being sold from 30-50% off.
If you’re looking for something to do with the kids during these last few days before school starts, do check out Lego Build Your World. Bring your child or bring your inner child with you. 😉
