Brickworld Chicago 2014 brings 66,000 square feet of awe-inspiring LEGO creations to the Renaissance Convention Center in Schaumburg on Saturday, June 14th and Sunday, June 15th. For a $10 advance admission fee ($11 for tickets on the day of the show), guests of all ages and engineering abilities can enjoy LEGO and DUPLO play brick areas, seek and find games, and other interactive experiences.

Lifelong enthusiasts of the popular plastic building blocks and new fans who jumped on the bandwagon of this year’s LEGO Movie can purchase all variety of LEGO sets, miniature figures, and accessories from a global conglomeration of LEGO connoisseurs.

This event promises to be a favorite with kids, even the littlest ones who should probably stick to DUPLO products in lieu of risking the ever-present LEGO choking hazard. While general admission tickets for accompanying adults may set a family back a few bucks, kids age three and under can enjoy Brickworld 2014 for free. Boy Scouts who wear their uniforms to the convention will receive a Brickworld 2014 patch for their participation in the event.

Advanced tickets are available now and recommended, given the extra dollar that guests will have to pay if they purchase their tickets on the day of the event. Aspiring architects and those who just want to see exquisitely detailed toy versions of world landmarks can buy tickets, check out convention hours, and peruse a list of vendors at http://www.brickworld.us/chicago/.
