As snow finally takes hold of the Chicago area, young builders can pave the way to a month full of fun indoor construction play by taking advantage of events and deals taking place at local LEGO Stores this February 2013.
February LEGO Stores events
Through February 28th, visitors to the store can take part in the ongoing LEGO Legends of Chima Challenge. Participants will receive a free exclusive LEGO Chima poster and accessory pack (while supplies last). The current building challenge will change to a new one starting February 11th.
On Tuesday, February 5, children ages 6–14 can visit their local store from 5:00 p.m. on to take part in this month's mini model build (while supplies last). Kids will be provided with a free set of elements to assemble and take home. The model for February is a charming miniature log cabin.
On Saturday, February 16, kids can attend a LEGO Friends Club Meeting. The activity this month is to design and build a model to reflect your favorite hobby. Space is limited, so interested children should register ahead of time. The cost is $25 for non-members and $20 per child for VIP members, and each registrant will receive a limited-edition LEGO Club T-shirt.
On Saturday, February 23, children can attend a LEGO City Club Meeting. The activity this month is to design and build a crook-catching car for Chase McCain. Again, space is limited, so interested kids should register soon. Again, the cost is $25 for non-members and $20 per child for VIP members, and each registrant will receive a limited-edition LEGO Club T-shirt.
February LEGO Stores deals
All month, customers who spend at least $35 can receive a free LEGO City Police Helicopter set. Additionally, for purchasing a LEGO City Fire Truck, shoppers can receive 50% off the purchase of a Fire Motorcycle.

Through March 31, LEGO builders who already received a Holiday Pick-A-Brick box can fill it up for free at the Pick-A-Brick wall.
