LEGO Store Birthday Party?

Has anyone had one there already?

My DS has his next weekend.

I was wondering what other's did for after the party. We were thinking we would just get a cookie cake and drinks up at the food court? Do they allow that?

How was the actual party? Did you get the extra $5 per kid lego cups? or were the lego kits enough?

My sister had one there for my nephew. I didn't go because my 2 year old started running a fever a few hours before the party. Everyone seemed to have a great time. They didn't get extra lego cups but they seemed to come home with quite a bit in their bags.

After the party they went to the food court and had cake and drinks. I don't think they even bought anything at the food court. The borrowed my wagon to haul their ice chest and cake.

That is good to know!! I don't mind ordering the cookie cake from the mall- but I didn't want to buy a bunch of drinks at an inflated mall price!

We had his birthday party on Sunday!

It was nice! They set up two tables in the middle of the store, and the kids all build the lego sets you buy for them- We lucked out, the store was out of the magazines that go in the goodie bags, so they let the kids all fill a box with legos from the wall.

The lady said that Stonebriar was completely booked for the rest of the year for their Sunday parties. If you were considering a Lego store party, I would call Northpark ASAP before they get booked up! They do not have Saturday parties, and the parties during the weekdays are done While the store is open...

We bought pizza's from Sbarro's and brought a cooler of drinks and the cake. We set up table cloths and such in the food court. It worked out great!

Thanks for posting this Jenn. Ian wants to have his 8th there.

I'm wondering if I should do larger sets for older boys? It's just for one hour right?

Would older kids get bored? We will have a couple 10 and 11 yo there.

my son had his 8th there. it was fun. we did the same thing - Sbarro's pizza, and brought a cake, party supplies, etc.

the kids liked it, got to take home a Lego project, and we bought the $5 box to fill from the wall.

I will say though that 2 kids RSVP'd that they would be coming, then didn't show up, so we spent $10 on the Lego kit plus $5 for the party favor per kid. so yeah, that was $30 we spent on kids that didn't show.

I always have a kid or two that doesn't show - don't you hate that?

But then I just pass along the stuff to friends at school that couldn't come or in this case I'm thinking I could use these as a bday gift companion.

Six months to go and Ian already picked out the set he wants to make. We found a cool spider set that has 193 pieces. That should keep them busy!

Piper - did you order Sbarro ahead of time? Did you order whole pizza's or by the slice depending on what the kids wanted?

I also ordered a few mini sets for the cake topper. I found a cute cake online.

All I have left to do is get a few girls sets. I'll do that in a few months. She said girls sets go really fast and there are just two small sets
