I'm not sure about yours, but my children play with Lego bricks all of the time.  The one sure fire hit as a gift for them are the Lego brick sets.  I am excited to announce that I will be taking my family to the Lego KidsFest being held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin June 15-June 17, 2012!! 

1 lucky reader will win 2 tickets for the opening night, Friday, June 15th, session (4:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m.)  Winner will be chosen on June 6, 2012, and tickets will be emailed!!  Click HERE to register for your chance at 2 tickets!!

Did you know that more than 400 BILLION Lego bricks have been produced since 1949?  Or, that there are approximately 7 Lego sets sold each second!

If you are not in the Milwaukee area, don't fret, there are other stops on the tour as well.  The LEGO KidsFest 2012 tour stops: Cincinnati (March 23 – 25), Denver (April 27 – 29), Milwaukee (June 15 – 17), Austin (August 31 – September 2), Detroit (October 12 – 14) and Pittsburg (November 30 – December 2).
