  • Perth Bricktober visit


    Kevin Ahn

    Two weeks ago, I visited Bricktober held in Perth, Australia.

    It was 6th anniversary of the event and more than 70 AFOLs participated with 32 Assistants, Total number of 8057 visitors.

    The most interesting part was where Stephen planned big engagement zone where visitors can touch and play the bricks on site. I was able to witness the joy and creativity of children and parents, trying to build on their own after seeing amazing fan creations. It was awesome.

    The builds were amazing, but more amazing than the builds were catching up with so many AFOLs and TFOLs, hearing background stories how they come up with the ideas and how they make them into real life. Also lots of fun stories about how they started and now where they are and sharing valuable feedback.
