In commemoration of this historic PI day, 3.14.15, we created a video to honor this awesome day. And we get to celebrate Albert Einstein’s birthday too today. Yippee! The best way to recognize PI Day is with some LEGO.

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.
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!
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.

We came across this amazing, passionate LEGO Builder, Bjarney Ludviksdottir. Bjarney is a child from Iceland. He has a dream of building a 6 meter LEGO scale model of his favorite ship, the Titanic. Like a true engineer, he has done all of the measurements and come up with the schematics to build the ship, using a LEGO mini-figure to determine the scale. He created a video to ask LEGO if he could build his model at their LEGO Factory in Denmark.
We can help Bjarney achieve his dream by simply watching this video, sharing it with our friends and family, and tagging #LEGO in it. Please help us spread the word. Thanks!
