Lego came out in force at Star Wars Celebration VI. There were full size Lego Star Wars characters like C3PO, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, and Darth Maul.
In the Exhibition Hall, there were Legos for ages ages to build Star Wars settings, or for some, like Chewie, to just sit and play. Star Wars fans, both young and old, brought their own Star Wars Lego Creations. A video featuring Star Wars Legos will be uploaded in a later article. A favorite Lego Star Wars scene of my family's was Padme's baby shower.
Being a teacher and a mom, I frequently look for things that increase literacy. Lego has free magazines for kids as well as classrooms. The classroom magazines are not available yet for this school year, but check the Lego Education website for information for teachers about how to use Legos in the classroom.
The Lego Club magazine is available for FREE for kids. Kids/parents can sign up for a free two year subscription on Lego Club. There are three different magazines depending on the child's age: 1-6, 7-12, and 13+. For those 12 and under, a parent must complete the registration via email.
Star Wars Legos is a huge part of Legos. There were many fans at Star Wars Celebration that had built their own creations or built creations at the Lego Building Area. You can follow Lego Star Wars on Twitter for updates on products and pictures. Check out products, movies, comic builders, and downloads on the Lego Star Wars homepage. One Star Wars Lego set that was often talked about at Star Wars Celebration was the Lego Star Wars Rancor Pit set, which will be released in January 2013.
