If you’ve been inducting your kid into the wonderful world of Lego since the day they came home from the hospital, you’re probably wondering whether you should take them to the latest Lego extravaganza - Brickman Wonders of the World.

Simply put, if they love Lego and are in Year 1 or above, then it’s a pretty safe bet they will love the show. But what about the younger kids whose attention spans might be more suited to Peppa Pig than the Lego Movie?



If your child tends to lose the plot after half an hour, then you might need to wait a few years, because at $32 for adults and $22.50 for kids (under 4 are free) it’s an expensive activity if you don’t stay long. If you’re driving you will also need to take the costly city parking into account ($5.80/hour at the Convention Centre). There are Earlybird Tickets available for $20 plus BF but only on weekdays before the school holiday start (ie. the last day of cheap tickets is Friday 30th June).



It’s relatively easily accessible at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (Pavilion 6 - the very end one) with a train and bus station underneath but make sure you eat and pee beforehand, because there is no food or drink allowed in the pavilion and you will have to ask for a pass-out if you need to go to the toilet.

There are also no seats for tired kids, so bring a stroller if you can (there is plenty of room).



There are 50 amazing Lego displays depicting mankind’s most epic structures and inventions and while little kids might not be overly inspired by the incredible architecture and art pieces (though they may get a giggle out of Michelangelo’s David) they will love the Nemo-friendly Great Barrier Reef, the vintage VolksWagon Beetle and King Kong sitting atop the Empire State Building.

Best of all for little hands that get restless, there are plenty of hands-on displays and kids can build sea creatures and coral and add it to The Great Barrier Reef, make a Pyramid, build and test a racing car and even have free play over at the masterpiece wall. For really little ones, there are thousands of pieces of Duplo around the Golden Gate Bridge model which kids can play with for as long as they like.



Sessions aren’t timed, but for kids in pre-primary or younger, you will probably be there for an hour or less, longer if you have older kids who are interested in the exacting and fascinating details of the large-scale models.

There is also a competition where kids can find and count the ‘Eddie The Explorer’ mini-figs hidden in and around the exhibits and if they guess correctly they have the opportunity to win a great Lego prize.
