During our recent trip to California, we got to spend an entire day at LEGOLAND®. It was something that I have always wanted my kids to experience and I was so happy that I had the opportunity to take them. We actually went on Easter Sunday and I am glad that we chose that day because the park was not as crowded as it probably normally would have been on any other Sunday.
We had an awesome day, but today I am going to share a little insider tip with you if you are planning on visiting a LEGOLAND park. Trading minifigures is a big part of the fun of visiting LEGOLAND, although I don’t think many park-goers even know about the tradition.
Guests who bring a minifigure from home (or buy one in the park) can trade it for any of the minifigures that the park employees wear on their name tags.
Even though this was our first trip to LEGOLAND, we were told in advance about minifigure trading, so each of my boys brought a few Lego guys from home to trade. And trade they did:
Trading is easy, too! Here’s how it works: 1. Bring or purchase a complete LEGO Minifigure (hair or hat, head, body and legs) 2. Approach a Model Citizen (LEGOLAND Employee) with a Minifigure you would like to trade 3. Ask to trade 4. The new Minifigure is yours to keep . . . or trade again and again!
Minifigures must be traded in complete form – hair or hat, head, body and legs.If accessories are included, you are in luck! There’s no limit to how many minifigures you can trade, either, so bring as many as you’d like!
Have you ever heard about Minifigure trading at LEGOLAND?
