      Does your store actually check the list of people that sign up?

        My store can be hit and miss on that and it’s a bit frustrating to worry about whether or not they’re going to have enough sets because some folks just show up with their kids and expect to be accommodated. If they are enforcing, it can be very tedious standing in line as the staff has to explain over and over to upset parents and children that they needed to be preregistered. Maybe it’s our store, but it’s not the most well organized event and has soured me on the experience a bit.

          One time, someone already checked in with MY NAME! I offered to show my ID. Kids got their kits, so it wasn’t a problem. It was early in the event too, and I didn’t recognize anyone that would have claimed to be me.

    Are the LEGO sets free or so we need to purchase and then they build?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You’ll get to build a free mini castle, Stephanie!

    To bad it’s only 8 to 12 years. They should do some for the little ones, too.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Have you seen this Frozen Event?

    • Maria

      We took our 5 year old to the last one that was said to be for 8-12 year olds and had no problems at all.
