LEGOLAND Discovery Center Is Coming to Philadelphia @ldcphiladelphia #LDCPhilly

Attention all LEGO fans! There is a new LEGOLAND® Discovery Center coming to the Philadelphia area in the spring of 2017 and we couldn't be more excited! As you know, we are huge fans of all things LEGO, and having a LEGOLAND® close by for our kids to play is going to be simply awesome. 

Groundbreaking Ceremony at Plymouth Meeting Mall 

This past Tuesday, Oct. 25 they held a groundbreaking ceremony at Plymouth Meeting Mall for the 33,000-square-foot location.   First-grade students from nearby Plymouth Elementary School were on hand to dig their shovels into the pile of over 50,000 LEGO bricks spilled by a Turner Construction dump truck to officially mark the start of construction.  {Did you see it on social media? That's a lot of LEGO bricks! So fun!}
