Sharing The Lego Love
As a Family we are massive Lego Fans, It is actually one of the few things we all have in common.Lego provides us with the tools to help our family spend quality time together and have lots of fun!
As a child I loved building Lego houses from my bucket of mixed Lego bricks my cousins used to pass on to me, my favourite part was putting in the little windows and flower vases on display.I am sure I even used to have a Lego hospital set.
Visiting Legoland Windsor
Lego is a big part of our lives, last year we fulfilled my youngest son’s dream and took him to stay at the new Legoland Hotel in Windsor.
This is every Lego loving child’s ideal place on earth, Lego Themed right from the outside of the hotel to even tiny detail in the rooms.
You are greeted by a moving, fire-breathing Dragon right above you as you walk through the entrance way, this gets you excited straight away.
The reception is made up of thousands of mini figures across the wall which looks spectacular. Thousands of Lego bricks are in a big pit in the middle of reception where families and a lot of dads should I add sat happily creating Lego masterpieces for the daily competition. I don’t know who wanted to win the most, the kid’s or the dad’s!
We decided to make our stay even more special, we would surprise the children with a stay in one of the special premium rooms. We stayed in an Adventure room, themed to perfection, the children even got a special badge for there lanyard showing they had stayed in a special room.
This room even had a separate children’s sleeping area, with their own TV
A really luxurious bed perfect after an exhausting day in the park
Collecting the Lego Badges
This badge collecting craze was a hit with my youngest, he set out to collect as many badges during our stay as possible. whenever you ate in certain restaurants you got a badge themed to that place.As you can imagine we ended up eating quite a lot of different food during our stay to collect the badges.You could even trade badges with staff that you met in shops, on rides and that were just walking around the park.
We quite often had to keep up with our son who seemed to have a knack for spotting staff wearing lanyard’s with cool badges on.
I could write pages and pages of our adventures at Legoland, instead I will show you our trip in pictures.
I might trade my hubby in for this Lego knight

I have found someone who is taller than my Husband!
As Well as Legoland Windsor we love to visit the Legoland Discovery centre in Manchester, a little closer to home so more accessible. We have attended a few special days there where you can collect themed badges like Halloween badges and Marvel Hero’s.
Here is my son showing off his lanyard ,collection of Lego mini figures and creations that we have all helped build in the past, My husband and eldest son love to get involved too and carry on long after the youngest ones bedtime, it shows there are no age boundaries with Lego.
I noticed after a night staying over at his nana and grandad’s house he came home with his Lego Minecraft set fully built and I bet I know who was helping!
This Christmas I am sure Santa will be dropping off a few Lego sets here, hopefully the back to the future car set.I have bought all my Nephews and Nieces Lego this year either for their collections or as a starter to give them the Lego bug too!
My eldest son is just one of us who is super excited for the new film and he will be 17 next week, he said it looks proper sick! Which in our terms is a great movie.
We can not wait until February for the release of
The Lego Movie
