    Default Has your child had a LEGO Birthday party (at the Lego store)? Or been to one?

    Has your child had a Lego birthday party (at the Lego store)??
    Or has your child ever been to a Lego birthday party at the Lego store?


    My son really wants to have his birthday party at Lego. I'm just not
    sure what to expect.

    How do their parties work? Thanks!

    Book early. They were sold out for all of 2010 at our store in March or April of 2010.

    There is not a lot of space in our store for the parties. They do a guided build there and can fill their pick a brick favor boxes. We have been to one. Ours is in a mall, so food was walking to a Taco Del Mar in the mall.

    We were not able to book there, so we bought the party pack and had it at a party room at a neighborhood pizza joint.

    We haven't been or done it but they have changed it recently, I overheard it at the store.

    They also have this new kit:

    I'd love to do it in-store for DD but the no food thing seems hard.

    It's worth seeing if there is a cancellation or if your area has more openings.

    The lego pack parties are super easy to use, and we used the gift card towards lego sets (small ones- actually this camper) as party favors. We did the party at a restaurant and then walked to a park after for games and parent pick-up time.

    I'd do it at home or can you rent a room? You could have the kids do a minifig building contest. Largest tower etc.

    Give series 2 minifigs for goody bag items. Or put lego bricks in a pinata (you could make a lego brick one out of a cardbd box). Endless possibilities!

    Have not been to a Lego store party, but just went to a birthday with one of nine certified "Lego Masters" was there. He led builds, brought a million different Legos, cool things already built, built tons of things, etc. The kids, mostly boys six or seven years old, loved it and were quiet and raptly building there own projects while he led the group for about an hour. Then there was food, cake, free play. It was at the birthday boy's home. The mom had read an article in the newspaper about these Lego Masters and I guess two of the nine are in our city. It was a very successful party, kids had a great time and she gave out nice Lego kits for party favors.

    We did guess the number of legos in a number of different jars and we played Creationary. It was a smaller party so the favors were a bit nicer than normal (on the kid side, not on the adult side. But we had already decided to home-school and were not interested in inviting the class to his party were at least 5 boys had been tormenting him all year.)

    I made a cake that looked like 3 lego bricks using rolled fondant, mini cupcake bottoms and loaf pans.
