Last week we went to visit the new Lego store at Dreamworld.
Yes, I have a Lego lover living at our house
(the child, who, while in the US last year,
was bemoaning the fact that Australia doesn’t have any Lego stores,
and who came home to Australia to find out that Dreamworld was building a Lego store).
Oh and if you don’t have a Dreamworld ticket or pass, don’t worry.
You can access the store from the outside without a ticket or pass.
Inside the store is all the Lego your little (and big) Lego Lovers could desire.
It’s a pretty decent sized store.
(And we’re seen a few
– our Lego Lover dragged us into every Lego store he found in the US
on the east and west coast).
All around the store, there are Lego creations.
Some with an Aussie flavour,
and one to remind shoppers that you need a ticket to go beyond the store into Dreamworld
(at least that what we thought it was doing).
There was even a miniature ‘Lego’ Lego store!
Of course, there is the famous Lego Pick-a-Brick Wall
(If you plan on filling a cup with bricks, make sure you check out youtube
for the best methods of stacking those bricks to get the most bricks for you money).
There’s also “Build a Minifigure” stations,
where you get to mix and match different minifigure parts to create your own combination.
Of course, we didn’t leave the Lego store empty handed.
Lego Lover left so much drool on one of the new Lego Batman sets,
that I relented and purchased it for him.
Thankfully, the prices were pretty reasonable.
Some of the prices were a bit more than the department stores,
many were the same,
and some were even cheaper (but only by a smidge).
My little Lego Lover is over the moon about the new Lego store,
especially since it’s just up the highway from our house.
I’m not sure if my wallet is excited about that though. 😦
