Best! Birthday! Party! EVER!!

So I have to admit, I’ve been looking forward to today’s Lego birthday party with equal parts excitement and dread. Custom Lego birthday party for eight boys? Wicked awesome! Eight boys in my house? Questionable. Four of five family members felled by stomach flu in the five days leading up to the party, leaving the birthday boy vulnerable? Nerve-wracking. Three of said party guests, including the birthday boy, spontaneously and independently naming the party-in-progress “Best birthday party EVER!”? Priceless.

This is what an eight-year-old’s perfect birthday looks like:

creator 2

creator 1

Creator 3

Tristan's gears

Paper crinkler

Lego mindstorm movie

Meeting the mindstorm

Building bots 1

Building bots 2

Building bots 3

building bots 4

Sumo lego robots

Bow to the enemy

Robots ready!

Sumo lego

a banana

Lego cake

Blowing candles

The boys were astonishingly well-behaved, and utterly engaged with the Lego Guy’s instruction at every step of the way. Things only got a little crazy when they took their newly assembled Lego Mindstorm Robots into the wresting ring for a final challenge. Take a quick peek, it’s only 30 seconds but I bet if you’re even a little bit in touch with your inner eight-year-old boy (what, you don’t have one?) it makes you smile!

Did I mention? Best! Birthday! Party! EVER!

11 marisol March 10, 2010 at 12:11 pm

Great party!
My boy, Dario (1 year old), just looooves the blocks. I’m pretty sure he’d be more than excited to have a party like Tristan had once he gets older.

A-W-E-S-O-M-E for kids(and let’s say that for parents too must of the time, jejejeje).

Hi Anonymous,

I don’t feel comfortable posting the Lego Guy’s information publicly (it’s not mine to post) but he seems fine with me sharing it via e-mail. If you fill out the e-mail address line when you comment, I can send it to you — or you can e-mail me for it at danicanada (at) gmail (dot) com. :)

I did a search on Ian Dudley that was referred to above and found an email address for him:

You can see he has been to many Ottawa events and his email was posted there for reference.

Hope this helps people!

Hi Angie, your comment came through as “Anonymous” so I can’t reply to you directly.

To everyone who has asked – I haven’t had contact with Ian for several years now and I’m not sure if he is still even offering Lego parties.
