The LEGO Store at Rockefeller Center, New York City

The LEGO store at Rockefeller Center in New York City.

Last weekend I looked around in the LEGO store at Rockefeller Center after going to church with my mom.  The place is pretty cool so I thought I’d share some pictures so you can see some of what you might find if you go there.

LEGO mosaics on the walls of the store.

Rockefeller Center built with LEGOs.

Scattered throughout the store are recreations of landmarks, made completely with LEGOs.  This is one of the bigger ones, though there were smaller ones too, in little enclosed boxes to prevent damage.  You view them by peering in through bubble dome covers.

This Chinese dragon is made completely from LEGOs and you can see different portions of it going throughout the store.  You can see its tail in the store’s entrance windows, which you can see in the first picture of this post.

A wall of LEGOs that you buy by weight.

Just like the M&M store at Times Square has a wall of different flavored M&Ms, there is a wall with a huge selection of various types of LEGOs, from heads to antennae to the little round caps that go over one ‘peg’ on a LEGO brick.  I don’t know what the interlocking raised parts of the LEGOs are called!

I know these aren’t intended to be FarmVille related LEGOs, not officially, but that’s what these sets reminded me of.

If I had to make a choice between going to the M&M Store and going to this store, I think my love of LEGOs would overpower my love of chocolate.  There’s something about LEGOs that just makes me want to buy them all and spend hours building things!  I could go broke in this store if I wasn’t careful.

That's weird. I never knew they were having financial difficulties. I can't imagine LEGO ever going out of business. I love those things! It's a much healthier toy for kids too. It exercises the imagination, instead of just force feeding them crap from the TV.

interesting story with LEGOs. They brought themselves out of near bankruptcy and thrive today.
