I thought I had left the fun game of Lego in my childhood, but when the largest LEGO® fans event in the Middle East made its way to Bahrain, I knew I would be making a visit to my past. As a top Bahraini blogger, I make it my mission to try everything and go everywhere, so that I may share and enjoy my experiences with all of you. This event, called ‘’stack’’ was held on the 4th till the 8th of July at the Exhibition Center. If you missed it, fear not, for Bahrain’s famous blogger has it covered.
As you enter, you become aware of the many, many children and their huge smiles! The area is divided into zones: the build zone, the souq, the game room, the Star Wars zone, the brick pits, the escape rooms, and the princess room. The build zone was full of creative pieces on display as young and elder minds worked on their Legos to create their own masterpieces. As if the Bahrain souq wasn’t already amazing, imagine it all made of Lego! Jewellery, animals, and people all made from Lego, even if you’re not a fan, you must admit that it’s very cool. Children and adults entirely occupied the game room alike, while the princess room was taken over by girls and patient fathers. The brick pits were engulfed in a sea of people and the escape rooms filled with activities. My favourite place will have had to be the ice age stage. Characters from ice age had been completely designed from Lego pieces! Just to think how much precision, patience, and time that would have taken is mind boggling enough!
Onwards, stood even more pieces of hard work, made by people across the world. Each piece of Lego was used to create a 3D object. It ranged from houses and cars to dragons and dinosaurs! With the ever-changing world of technology, and children being born with iPhone’s and tablets at the ready, it was incredibly refreshing and joyous to see everyone young and old using their hands, and not to text, but to create things while using their imaginations. It was almost a reminder to everyone of how to be a kid, since they tend to grow so fast these days! Lego has been around for about 66 years, and for the sake of merriment, as a Bahraini blogger I hope it stays.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience for children and for the child in me!
