Lego lovers ready to rebuild world brick by brick

Claudia Baxter

IPSWICH children can keep holiday boredom at bay and build their own mini-cities at a special Switch Bricks event next month.

Lego has enjoyed newfound popularity at Ipswich toy shops, and Switch Bricks will allow children to play with mountains of the building bricks for an affordable price.

Organiser Tammy Heit said the event was aimed at children.

"We'll have special stations for children to use displays and staff to help them," Ms Heit

Lego-loving children will be able to build and create pieces to their hearts' content at one of the many individual stations.

Mini-world Lego displays will also be on hand for inspiration, and include Miniland City, Pirate Islands, a Castle and Fabuland.

Younger children will be able to enjoy a Duplo Corner, and there will also be competitions and games throughout the season.

Switch Bricks will be at the Blackstone-Ipswich Cambrian Choir Hall at 10 South Station Rd, Booval. Sessions will run from 9.30am to 12.30pm, and then from 1.30 to 4.30pm.

Entry is $2 for children aged 1-3, and $9 for those above.

Children must be supervised.
