Who doesn’t like something for free? Um, everyone does! Well, your kiddo can get a free LEGO set at LEGO Stores in October.

So how can your LEGO-loving kiddo score a free model? The answer is easy—register for the Monthly Mini Model Build. Every month LEGO stores across the country offer free events for kids to build seasonal or themed models. And they get to take home what they build, without an added charge.

October’s mini build is the LEGO Scarecrow Witch model—because Halloween is right around the corner. Obviously, these monthly events are extremely popular. Again, kids get to build a model and take it home for free. And that makes it extra enticing. Due to the popularity, LEGO stores limit availability to 120 mini models per store.

If this sounds like something your child just has to do, the time to register is NOW. Registration for the monthly event begins on the 15th of the previous month at 9 a.m. EST. That means October’s registration opened on Sep. 15. Registration is limited to LEGO VIP card members only. If you aren’t currently a member, you can register for VIP card status first.

The Scarecrow Witch model event is set for Oct. 2 and 3, with these exceptions of the LEGO fashion Valley, Arundel Mills, Overland Park and The Mills at Jersey Gardens stores. These LEGO retail spots will hold their event on Oct. 9 and 10. The build is open only to children between the ages of 6 and 14.

According to the LEGO website, this is a building event. You will not be permitted to take the toy without building it in the store or pick up the set at a later date (if you don’t attend the event). Visit the LEGO website to register for the October build ASAP!
