Easy car access
is preferred and a 'load in' fee may apply if
there is more than 100 feet of distance or 15
feet of height between parking and the party
space. I will be bringing large heavy cases of
LEGO, so a clear path is helpful.
Parties usually take
place in a family home. Almost any living-room
or rec-room will work. Hardwood and other smooth
floors are ideal; short haired carpets are
second; long haired are worst (though still
usable). Parties can be arranged in co-op rooms
and other non-home locations so long as the room
is fairly small and has a "quiet play feel".
Larger Rental Rooms
like halls or community centres do not work
well. Any space that is big enough to run in
will generally set the energy level too high for
a LEGO party so it’s best to avoid
rented spaces if at all possible. Children also
treat people's homes and anything in them much
better than public spaces. Being in a rented space
takes away the set of expectations that kids have
when entering someones home. Doing a party in a
public space can lead to a lot of lost and damaged
(broken) LEGO. Please be prepared to cover $10-50
in damage at a large rental space.
Setting the Space
Coffee tables and
other low surfaces are great but not needed.
Dinner tables are not useful and best moved to
the side or out of the room. A party with 10
children will need at least 100 square feet of
floor space. If you are adding 5 kids, add
roughly another 50 Square feet of space. This
space can be spread into more than one room but
it's not ideal.
Please ensure that
these is no other LEGO® in the space. If
there is, It might get packed into my bins.
Mixing LEGO and food
usually turns into a really big mess for me. If
you are serving Food during the LEGO portion of
the party, please do so away from the LEGO. I will
mention this to the kids at the start of the party
