Because kids and LEGO slot together so well

You don't know what pain is until you step on a LEGOŽ block.

Or as Jeremy Clarkson put it in his book And Another Thing: The World According to Clarkson: LEGOŽ is left open so "adults have something to tread on when they are prowling around the house at two in the morning, in bare feet, looking for the source of a noise."

Then, I guess the source of the noise becomes a parent screaming profanity.

But I am sure Jeremy Clarkson would approve of the Brick Expo in Canberra which features hundreds of creations that big kids like him and little kids like yours are going to enjoy.

There will be loads of moving and robotic models including racing cars, planes and space ships. There will be a gigantic network of trains and whole fleet of lStar Wars™ ships.

There will also be plenty of buildings and monuments.

Onsite there will be heaps of LEGOŽ sellers stocking rare and hard to find items.To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the opening of Parliament House, Canberra there are also a limited number of microscale sets.Until sold out.

Personally I think there is a piece missing recently and it moved to Adelaide.

There is also lots of other pre-event merchandise available which can be picked up at the CLUG booth at Brick Expo.

You'll see some amazing creations belonging to interstate and local collectors and modeller.

Because of the popularity of this event you need to pay to attend individual session times which are staggered throughout the two days.



You may also want to attend the special dinner which includes a three-course meal an exclusive showing of the Brick Expo on arrival, a show bag courtesy of Bricks to the World and
a chance to listen toLEGOŽ Certified Professional Sean Kenney from New York. For details click here.

Tickets for the individual session can be organised here.

Last year's Brick Expo sold-out before the show with over 10,000 tickets sold. This year there are two extra sessions which brings the total number available up to 12,000.

Brick Expo is organised by the Canberra Lego User Group and is a not-for-profit event with proceeds going to PaTCH to purchase medical equipment for Paediatrics at the Canberra Hospital. Last year they raised over 40 000 dollars.

As Stephen one of the committee members for Brick Expo said in an interview "at the end of the day LEGO is a toy, so it's good that kids are the ones really benefiting."
