We received heartwarming news from the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose: their participation to the energetic LEGO KidsFest in San Jose was a resounding success. The event was sold out, with over 23,000 visitors coming from all over the region.

The Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose‘s booth was located right at the entrance of the event and prominently featured the Imagination Playground experience: blocks, curves, angles, banners, and a ton of fun.

Children were reportedly so enthused by our giant blue blocks that they didn’t want to leave for other LEGO activities (and they looked exciting, too).

We were also thrilled to hear that one LEGO KidsFest staff member noted that the large motor experience of Imagination Playground was a perfect complement to the small motor LEGO experience. We’re very much looking forward to the next one!

Note: the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose is one of the largest museums of its kind in the nation, with more than 150 interactive exhibits that lead visitors to explore, understand, and enjoy the world in which they live. Lifelong learning in a playful environment. Check out their website here: www.cdm.org and like them on Facebook, too. Many thanks to them for providing us the pictures that illustrate this blog post.

UPDATE: Take a look at the Imagination Playground banner that the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose put up this week. We love them as a partner in child’s play. The banner can be seen from two major freeways. If you drive by, how about coming in and let your kids build a car of their own with our blocks!
