LEGO world in CoPenHagEN
I have a routine for when I arrive at a new destination, I quickly unpack, take a shower, browse my phone, close the curtains and take a nap. At Radisson Blu Scandinavia Copenhagen, I did the same with exception to the curtains. The city view was amazing!! And I promised myself that I’d have to discover it later on. There was a lot of promising involved cause the weather was also promising to be extremely cold (one degree Celsius 😨).
The simple, block shape toys with interlocking pieces known as LEGO (meaning play well) are originally from Denmark 🇩🇰😃. I got curious, I love LEGOS, especially the movies, but am really bad at putting the pieces together 😅. The manufacturers’ flagship store is located in the heart of the city. I got excited. The reviews online were good and knew that’s where I was going.
My day started with a cup of Starbucks hot chocolate 🍪. After a few sips, my drink was cold😗. Their cold weather is no joke (how do the locals manage) and I had planned to walk to the store😅. Google Maps was promising a 25-minute walk (didn’t sound so bad 😗).
Copenhagen is a charming beautiful city, from the spectacular skyline to the cute rowed houses, the naked trees, to tiny small lakes/rivers scattered everywhere.
Halfway through, it got really cold, I wonder how the locals manage to ride their bicycles, even my phone was losing its power quite fast😩 (Does cold weather affect the phone?🤨).
After a few wrongs turn, feeling cold and mini panic attacks from my phone battery, I made it to the Lego store🙌🏾. Every human being who sets foot in there says this line; it was smaller than I had expected 😇.
The store was really cute, the display walls full of toys for all ages. It’s a great place to take kids; they have a build your own LEGO section. I tried building, just to reconfirm how bad I am at it😅.
I spent quite some time in the store, awing at all the LEGO boxed toys and the built statues. The star wars section was my favorite and the mini Nyvan Copenhagen.
The staff was really friendly and helpful. One suggested I climb onto a huge LEGO bicycle so I can take a picture (I felt like a little kid 🙈). Feeling guilty with all the time I spent there, I bought a boxed toy for my little nephew, so I can teach him how to put it together 😜.
I hope he likes it☺.
Is anyone a fan of LEGO and knows how to piece them together? We can plan a play date and you can show me 😆… Hit me up on the comment section below 👇🏾💕💕.
Keep it simple.
