For a LEGO-tastic Event: Play Fair
If your kid just loves, loves, loves LEGOS, save the date! (Or even better, lock in some tickets at a discounted Early Bird rate now.)
Play Fair, a boffo brick extravaganza, is taking over the Javits Center on November 4 and 5. Last year's event welcomed 20,000 attendees and sold out!
The event includes two full days of experiences, hands-on exhibits, toys and displays, and attendees will also get a sneak preview of toys of the future. Plus, lots of chances to build, see amazing LEGO creations, meet and greet with Master Builders and more.
Last year's co-sponsor Nickelodeon returns for 2017; expect characters and junior celebs from the network's shows to make appearances throughout the weekend.
Nov. 4 & 5
Tickets: Morning and afternoon sessions are currently offered at an Early Bird rate of $20; Early Bird VIP is $50. Family rates are also offered.
