While Australia is already home to a few Lego Certified Stores, the one at Westfield Marion is the first to be opened in South Australia. Adorning the store are large scale displays made entirely from Lego parts, with one of the most striking being a mosaic showing a scene of a jetty at sunset.

As expected, Lego sets are the focus with built models displayed throughout the store. The range is very diverse, covering all age groups and themes including Harry Potter, Star Wars and Lego Technic. Some products are exclusive to the store - great for those looking for something rare or a gift not typically found in department stores.
Full Lego sets are not the only thing customers can purchase. The Pick A Brick Wall at the back of the store allows you to purchase specific bricks, as opposed to a whole set. Purchasing the bricks is done by filling up a cup, with the price based on the size of the cup you chose. There is also a station that lets you create your own Lego minifigure from the parts provided. To help keep your kids occupied, there are Lego play tables located in the store.

Its close location to one of the entrances from the car park and the stairs leading up to Event Cinemas makes finding the store a relatively easy task. If you are looking for a great place to obtain Lego bricks and models, be sure to give the Lego Certified Store a visit.
