What will Lego think of next? I had a chance to get a look at their Rockefeller Center store a few days before it opened and BOY is it COOL! A wall of Legos, a variety of sculptures mostly specific to NYC and a computer station where people can print out inspiration for designs – yes, this store has it all.
Are you a LEGO fan? There is a free event you can take part of coming up in NYC:
WHAT: Free, three-day collaborative build of a 16-foot tall by 12-foot wide BIG APPLE – the iconic symbol for New York City – made entirely of LEGO Bricks to celebrate the grand opening of the LEGO Store at Rockefeller Center. Building tables and hundreds of visitors surrounding the ice rink, helping LEGO Master Builders build massive LEGO topiaries and a Big Apple over the Channel Gardens.
WHEN: Tuesday, June 29th – 8am – 6pm – New York Yankee, Nick Swisher, will lay the 1st brick at 8am.
Wednesday, June 30th – 8am – 6pm
Thursday, July 1st – 8am – THE LAST BRICK will be placed on the apple at 3pm on Thursday July 1st!
WHERE: Channel Gardens in front of The LEGO Store at Rockefeller Center (5th Avenue between 49th and 50th)
(yes, they came out with boardgames that you can change around!)
