If you have been reading for a while you might remember that last year we had a really good day out at Brick Live. As you can imagine I was very excited to be invited back to attend the 2016 show and is was great knowing a bit more about what to expect this time.
We arrived a little while after the show had started and got in very quickly. We were immediately greeted by some amazing LEGO. There was Halloween LEGO set, a huge Scooby Doo, loads of train tracks, villages and Lottie’s favourite- a huge Beauty and The Beast set. We spent ages looking at the amazing things the master builders had made and then went off and started joining in the fun ourselves.
Lottie and I made LEGO houses to put on the map of the UK, designed cars to test on the speed ramps, joined in with making a Giant pumpkin and a huge mosaic picture, all before diving into the huge LEGO pits to build whatever we wanted.
We then moved to the back of the show were all the stalls were and where we discovered the most amazing model ever- a massive copy of a DFDS ship-it was awesome!
I asked the lady if they were going to make small versions to buy but she thought they wouldn’t be able to – I really hope the do though. They could sell them in the ships restaurants and reception and it would make our journey to France go much quicker.
Once we had admired the ship and done some colouring we went to have a look at what the retailers were selling.
There was literally everything a LEGO fan could ever want to buy- t-shirts, jewellery, limited edition LEGO sets and even bedroom furniture!
Some really amazing things there – we really liked the 3D Funky Faces people who can make you a LEGO version of yourself- these were awesome. They looked like they should feel squidgy but were actually hard and are proper LEGO people. We are definitely saving up for these!
I also loved the Base Ace 3D Play Platforms which we mentioned last year- I had been saving my pocket money so I was finally able to get a set.
This is such a great way to play with figures and vehicles and lets you create allsorts of games- I have had some amazing battles with mine! I am hoping to convince my sister to spend her pocket money that she has saved on a different set and then we can get an extension kit to connect the two. I don’t know how her LEGO friends characters will survive against an invasion from my Stormtroopers though!
It was nearly time to go home but there was just enough time for Lottie to go and learn a dance routine with the LEGO friends, which she loved doing.
Once again BRICK was an awesome day out- we all had fun, played lots, built loads and came home with some fab stuff too! If you get chance to go to the next one it is a great day out for LEGO fans of any age.
