Lashings of LEGO at Queensbridge Square
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No. It's a red LEGO brick, but not an ordinary, everyday, red LEGO brick. This one is a whopping 8 metres long by 3 metres wide, exact scale model of a red LEGO brick. This sensational scarlet surprise is dropping into Melbourne's Queensbridge Square for 3 days of giant LEGO fun from Friday 30 November to Sunday 2 December, as part of the LEGO Festival of Play. And everyone, big and small, is invited to roll up their sleeves and get playing in the LEGO Pop-Up Play Pit.
[ADVERT]And what's so much fun about a giant LEGO brick? I hear you ask. Well, I suppose it's not really the brick itself, but what's inside that counts. Inside there will be so many LEGO pieces you'll think you've died and gone to LEGO heaven. The walls will be lined with row after row of LEGO baseplates - you know, those squares of coloured plastic upon which mighty LEGO structures are created. You can design and build whatever you like. Think big and go for your very own Sydney Opera House, Great Pyramid or Colosseum. Or tone it down a little and stick with tiny towns and people. Whatever you make you'll feel proud to see it displayed on the walls.
If you prefer constructing in the great outdoors then outside you'll find a shaded play area with lots of tables and plenty of those colourful, simple, and deceptively clever plastic bricks that have sparked imaginations everywhere. While this is billed as a family event I suspect that kids might find it hard dislodging their parents from the play tables.
