CT has really been getting into LEGO’s lately. Mostly the LEGO friends and Disney Princess sets, but hey, it’s a start. I absolutely LOVE LEGOS, LOVE! I was the kid who only asked for LEGO’s as a kid. I had buckets full and would build towns, cars and sometimes race tracks for my hamsters. I am about to turn 32 this year and I STILL get LEGO sets as gifts. I prefer the houses mostly, but am happy with anything intricate.
This lifelong love of LEGO’s helped me talk my husband into heading to this event. It was put together by local Boy Scout Troop 39. This was their second year and I was super impressed. There were loads of vendors, a few large town set ups, a play area for the kids and more.
There were a bunch of people, but not so many that we felt nervous having CT walk around. She seamed like she was having fun the entire time and loved looking at all the sets. However on the way home she told us it was a little boring, which is CT talk means “I’m upset I couldn’t play with more LEGOs”. My husband told her it was more a day for Momma anyway.
I ended up leaving with a few awesome custom pieces. One was a minotaur head and extra deer antlers by Brick Warriors (that I plan to turn into a mounted deer head), and the other was a miniature Serenity (from Firefly) kit with working light by Adrian Blake of brickfrenzy.com . CT and my husband left with some custom minifigs too, of course!
I loved looking at all the amazing sets and totally plan on heading back next year!! If you live anywhere near Leesburg, Virginia I suggest you check it out too. Also, if you can’t wait until next year there’s also the Brick Fair LEGO convention in Chantilly, VA. Apparently it’s HUGE! We would go if it weren’t the same weekend as BlytheCon.
(haha, I can’t go to one convention because of another? what life do I live now? an AWESOME ONE!)
