  • A Day to Play, Playday 2019


    Sara Skahill

    When you work at the LEGO Group, there’s opportunities to play in your daily work. However, as a company we reserve one day a year just for play – Playday.

    Across the globe, employees stepped away from their day jobs to get in touch with their inner playful self. At the US Enfield Hub, this meant a trip to “Sonny’s Place” an amusement park not far from the LEGO Office. At Sonny’s Place we found play activities such as arcade games (including one virtual reality game I was terrible at), go-kart racing, bowling, laser tag, pottery painting, and bowling.

    Although it was an overcast and chilly day, that didn’t stop us from enjoying afternoon ice cream and using the zipline.

    There was also a brick based “escape room” (or escape box?) in which we were challenged to crack the code using clues before 20 minutes - we finished with 2 minutes remaining, no big deal (it was a big deal).

    In Billund, the weather also didn’t encourage playing outside. However, inside tents, colleagues sported wrist bands and enjoyed building activities, cupcake decorating (jealous of that) and even a silent disco.

    Naturally in Billund they had a few more high profile attendants.

    Inside one tent, there was even a section to highlight how AFOLs “play”!

    In Jiaxing and Shanghai, China, the sun shone on Play Day. Of course, all play activities were inside anyway….

    As it was a smaller office, employees all got matching shirts rather than wrist bands. Activities included life sized Mahjong, and whatever is going on the second picture below.

    We hope you take some time to play every once in a while too.

    Thanks for sharing, Sara.

    Can you please share more details on the "escape brick". for inspiration. A great activity to use at an AFOL event.

    Cheers.

    Always good to hear that people take breaks, it's a great team building activity and everyone has fun. Sounds like it was a great day.
