ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – Play-Well Style

Just like so many others, our staff was challenged to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Due to the California drought, we came up with a Play-Well way of accomplishing the challenge. We hope you enjoy it. Please donate to further Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research at www.alsa.org.

Experiencing LEGO® KidsFest with Play-Well

We love being a part LEGO® KidsFest.  If you have never been to LEGO® KidsFest, it is one of the best LEGO experiences there is.  It’s even better than LEGOLAND in our opinion.  For families who haven’t experience it, we created this walk-through video of the Dallas LEGO® KidsFest to see if we can capture a glimpse of what it is like.  See if you can spot us at the end of the video running the LEGO Technic Booth.  For more information about LEGO Kidsfest, visit legokidsfest.com.  We hope to see you at an event soon!

Tipping Over Our Tallest LEGO Tower Ever

Our students in Fort Collins, CO built one of our tallest LEGO Towers ever in just over an hour. It was approximately 20 ft. tall. We needed to take it apart at the end of the day, so we figured the easiest way was to tip it over. Here is what happened in slo-motion.

Playing Well with Amazon.com!

We are having so much fun today at Amazon’s Summer Picnic event at CenturyLink Field. We got our LEGO booth rocking and rolling. Never thought we’d ever be playing with LEGO at the stadium of the Super Bowl Winners, Seattle Seahawks. Feeling extremely appreciative.
