The Ultimate LEGO Experience

Today was the first day of the 3-day Grand Opening Celebration of the new LEGO Store in South Coast Plaza. What better reason is there to take Dylan out of school early than to give him the ultimate LEGO experience? I took the day off work today to relax and free myself from stress, so why not let loose and have some fun! Oh my, I think I was almost as excited as Dylan was. The new LEGO Store is located on the lower level in Carousel Court on the Rainforest Cafe wing.

Before you go into the LEGO Store, be sure to stop by the Master Builder area located right next to the carousel and help build an 8 foot tall Yoda from LEGO's. There is a Yoda already built that stands about 2 feet tall so the kids can see what the finished product will look like. Stations are set up with friendly LEGO employees to help.

Each brick you build is 4 x 4 and is equal to one normal size LEGO. You can choose from tan, brown, or green bricks ... or make one of each like Dylan did!

Once you have built your bricks, you give them to the LEGO Master Builder and he places them where they need to go.

Now, off to the LEGO Store so we can get Dylan's certificate. Yes, you get an official Master Builder Certificate of Achievement for helping out. (While supplies last)

What a great way to get people into the store right? We spent almost an hour in the store looking at all the displays and deciding what LEGO's to purchase! Using our VIP card, we were able to earn double points and get a FREE LEGO Universe online game. Dylan was overcome with excitement. Just look at all those LEGO's!

Also, the first 300 people to visit the store on Saturday, March 12th can receive these Limited Edition Collectible Mini Figures with any $35 purchase.

In the words of Dylan, today was the "Ultimate LEGO Experience" and a day with my son I will always remember.

What is your favorite LEGO memory?
