LEGO Building Event: Space Ship Blast Off

Registration is now open for the next free LEGO Make and Take event! During June, kids get to build a free spaceship to launch in to space and then take home.

This continues the new format where LEGO Stores offered their free events on multiple days! These monthly mini build events are open to children ages 6-14 only and slots are limited, so you have to reserve a space before they run out.

Now for the bad news. For some weird reason, LEGO recently changed how registration for these events work. You no longer can register online, but must register in-store first. Kinda crazy if you ask me! Hopefully they revert this policy ASAP because how many of us have time for in-store registration? Each store has approximately 120 free LEGO kits per night and time reservations are on a first come, first serve basis.

I see no mention of registration for June, so perhaps they killed this draconian in-store registration plan from May? Either way, I'd call ahead and ask!

Also, I've noticed a few super cheap items lately in LEGO's sale and discount section. If you have a little one with an upcoming birthday who loves LEGOs, it might be worth scoping out.
