I already mentioned that we visited Brookfield Zoo in May. And while we really enjoy any trip to a zoo, this trip was scheduled for one specific reason: to see the Lego Brick Safari exhibit that they’re hosting through the end of September!
The exhibit includes over 40 life-size animals of all kinds. There were signs with information such as how many bricks it took to make the animal and how long it took to build, and some of the animals even included a bonus challenge!
We really enjoyed seeing the animals that were accompanied by their young!
I loved how the young tigers were depicted:
The pandas were adorably role-poly!
Don’t these guys look they’re straight out of The Lion King?
Other signs included scientific information about the animals, which was very helpful:
There were plenty of sea creatures:
And immense animals:
And animals of every other size, too!
This was a really cool exhibit (it very much reminded me of the Nature Connects display we saw at the Missouri Botanical Garden a few years ago), and I’m glad we happened to be in Chicago while it was on display!
