Hulk Build and Grow!

On August 27 we completed the Avengers build and grow series.

This was a fairy quick build. Hulks arm raise when you move a level in his back.

What’s Included in a Build and Grow?

The free kit has a wooden project, instructions with a comic on the back,  a patch of that project, an apron and goggles. You can put your child’s name on the apron and iron on the patches. Then they can wear it the next time.

Avengers August Day Twenty-nine


This past Saturday Toys R Us had a LEGO Build Event. I took my son so he could build a Captain America Mosaic. This is a free event and no preregistration is required, but it is first come first served.

We went to Lowe’s, built our Hulk figure(post coming soon) then killed some time shopping before we went to Toys R Us. At TRU they set up a couple tables, on with the LEGO bricks and another for a workstation to build the set.

There is a poster with the bricks you need. It list how many of each piece you need. There are bins of bricks on the table. You walk around the table and bag all the pieces. Then go build the project. Unfortunately at this the location they didn’t set the bricks up in order. They should have been in the same order they were on the poster but they were not. It took longer to collect the bricks and we missed a few and had to go back. capt_mural

We took our bag of pieces and our 1:1 template found some space and built it. The base is a 16×16 square. To build it you used the template to figure the correct brick.

It was a cool build, my son had fun and now he has a cool art piece.

Your Thoughts?

Have you ever been to one of these TRU Build events? What did you build?
