This year to help mark Canada’s 150th year in it’s own special way, LEGO is asking young Canadians to toss the instructions out and get creative with their visions for the future. LEGO City of Tomorrow is a nation-wide program that inspires kids to think about what they want Canada’s future cities to look like. Whether it’s improving infrastructure, creating brighter, and more green spaces, or even just adding in something that makes a city more fun, LEGO wants to see it.
All those things and so much more belong in the LEGO City of Tomorrow!
Thanks to a little gift from LEGO, my kids were inspired to come up with a few additions of their own for the LEGO City of Tomorrow. My youngest son and daughter spent an afternoon together having fun designing flying buses, personal transporter booths and a communal lab for scientists to share and collaborate on research. I have a feeling my kids are budding scientists.
Your kids can get involved in the City of Tomorrow in a couple of fun ways too!!
Visit a local Toys’R’Us Event April 8th and 9th from 11:00 am-3:00 pm at select stores
At the in store event all builders will join the LEGO City of Tomorrow construction crew with their very own, super official, ID badge. They will then be briefed in a unique LEGO virtual reality experience, led by the LEGO CITY OF TOMORROW mini figure foreman. In each store there will be a giant build table set up and it will be stocked with thousands of LEGO CITY bricks so kids can bring their ideas to life.
Once built each creation will be featured in the center of the build table. All the creations will be combined into a giant LEGO City of Tomorrow – with one idea being added at a time. Every store participating will have a city of it’s own!
