Disclosure: We have received a family ticket for BRICKLIVE 2019 and some brick kits in return for sharing this post.
Bricks are such magical things. Put a handful of coloured bricks together and you can create so many different things: a car, a house, a shark, a giraffe. The only limits are the number of bricks available and your imagination. If your children are fans of building with bricks, then they will love BRICKLIVE, the UK’s largest brick exhibition, which returns to the NEC Birmingham between 31st October and 3rd November.
There is something for all ages with areas such as City Builder, Minecraft, Mosaic Builder, Race Ramps, Friends zone, a Climbing Wall, Graffiti Wall, Race Ramps, Ninja Bricks, a Gaming Zone and so much more. There are five Brick Pits containing more than a million bricks, where your imagination really is the only limit on what you could create.
My 5 year old is a big fan of the PAW Patrol pups and is particularly looking forward to meeting Chase, Zuma, Skye and Everest in the new interactive PAW Patrol zone. This zone features 21 characters from the hit Nick Jr. show, recreated using colourful toy bricks. Check out the video here to find out more about the PAW Patrol zone.
The Friends zone is also likely to be a hit with her and her friend. They will love learning a new dance with the BRICKLIVE dancers as well as playing in the giant house in this zone.
I love the sound of the BRICKLIVE Ocean Zone, where we can learn more about the amazing diversity of marine life. There are more than 30 brick sculptures to explore in this area, including a killer whale and giant octopus.
If the Force is strong in you, then the Force Sci-Fi zone sounds the perfect place to discover your inner Jedi through brick-based games and challenges. You can also create your own intergalactic spaceship in this zone. The Architecture zone is also great for futuristic fun. Young builders will have fun creating the city of the future in this area.
There’s even something for the little ones with a Duplo LEGO® soft bricks area. This will be a great area for my 1 year old to enjoy.
We were sent a few brick kits to help us get in the mood for this year’s BRICKLIVE. My daughter had a great time putting them all together. They started off as cars, a helicopter, a robot, a flower stall and a giraffe. Since then, though, the bricks have been swapped about to create a whole host of different things. I’m looking forward to seeing where her imagination leads her at BRICKLIVE.
