There’s ‘blocks’ Of Fun To Be Had At Vaughan’s Legoland Discovery Centre

Vaughan Kids Attractions

Lego sure has come a long way since it was first introduced it in 1949. As the original building block, Lego has kept up with times and is now available in a variety of theme sets, complete with mini figures, motors, gears and lights.

The word ‘Lego’ comes from a Danish word for “play well” and this much-loved toy has certainly lived up to its name over the years.

Whether Lego is a hit with the kids or one of your favourite pastimes, a visit to the Legoland Discovery Centre in Vaughan is great for some indoor fun on those rainy days.  Geared towards children three to 10 years old, Legoland features a variety of attractions, two rides, a 4D cinema and a café. It’s the perfect place for kids to let their imaginations run wild.

The whole family can hop aboard the Kingdom Quest chariot, where you’ll battle skeletons and trolls with your mounted laser guns as you race along a track on a mission to rescue the captured princess. Next, test your knowledge of Toronto’s iconic landmarks in MiniLand, where some of the city’s most recognizable buildings have been replicated into miniatures using 1.5 million Lego blocks.

For those who feel the need for speed, visit the Lego Racers Build and Test area. Get creative and build an airplane, train or car and race it down the speed test track.

Serious Lego builders will want to stop by the Lego Master Builder Academy where the Discovery Centre’s own Master Model Builder will teach kids some of their tried-and-true tricks with hands-on instruction.

Younger kids will have a blast in the DUPLO Village, where hundreds of DUPLO bricks and giant soft bricks, exclusive to the Discovery Centre, are available to stacking, climbing and tumbling. The Lego Construction Site is also geared towards younger children, with a maximum height restriction of three feet.
For a birthday party your kids won’t soon forget, call 1-855-356-2150 for details of the Lego themed party packages.

Tickets are $22 plus tax for adults and $18 plus tax for children three to 13. Children under three are free. Take advantage of the after 3 p.m. Saver and pay just $15 per person, Monday to Thursday only.  Purchase tickets online for guaranteed entry at www.legolanddiscoverycentre.ca.

Storage Sheds 101

If your garage, basement or attic is busting at the seams, it’s likely time to invest in a quality outdoor storage shed to help reduce your clutter woes. Like most products these days, sheds come in a wide-variety of sizes, materials and price-points to suit your needs. Here are a few pointers to consider before you hit your local hardware store.
Decide if you’re going to build from scratch, install a prefabricated unit yourself, or hire a professional to install one for you. The prefabricated shed is leading the way in storage trends as it’s easy to assemble over a weekend, cost effective and comes as a one stop shop solution with everything included in one kit.
Sheds generally come in wood, plastic, vinyl or metal materials. Consider the materials not only for their looks, but what you plan to store inside as well as the surrounding climate. For example metal sheds heat up in the summer and are not safe for storing gasoline or other volatile liquids. Natural wood will require refinishing as the wood fades in the elements, whereas plastic and vinyl sheds are maintenance free. Price will also be a determining factor and can vary from $200 for a small metal structure all the way up to $5,000+ for a more elaborate wood model.
The storage shed will become a part of your property and either positively or negatively impact the appearance of your home. Because of this it’s important that you take into account a style that would compliment the look and feel of your home and your yard. Tie in colour schemes and add landscaping around the unit to help integrate the shed into your property.
Choosing the right size is equally important. Do some upfront measuring to ensure that your largest item will easily fit through the door. It’s generally best to buy a unit that’s slightly larger than your current possessions, since storage-worthy toys and tools tend to accumulate each year.
If you’re taking the popular prefabricated kit route, be sure to do some comparison-shopping before you make your final purchase. Hardware and garden stores will compete on price, so it’s worth a bit of upfront research to save a few hundred dollars.
