LEGO. It’s the retro toy that you don’t feel kind of weird about loving, like Barbie or the Easy Bake Oven. The LEGO stores are so colourful; the one at Sherway Gardens in Etobicoke has this giant red block right at the entrance that I would love to put right on my front lawn.
On my most recent trip to Sherway, I noticed a huge line outside the LEGO store.
That’s because it was Mini Model Build Night. Once a month, kids can learn how to build a special LEGO model, and then they get to take it home for free. That explained the line! The event is open to kids ages six to 14 and there is a different theme each month. To find out when the next Mini Model Build is taking place, click on the LEGO store closest to you at the LEGO website and you’ll see a store calendar on the right. Sherway Gardens, 25 The West Mall, Etobicoke.
