Business Update: 8th June 2020

By | June 9th, 2020|Brickies at home, News|

For the last ten weeks we have been producing and releasing a new LEGO building challenge every Saturday morning. Our aim was to provide children with inspiration and an opportunity to escape into a world of play, particularly during these challenging times. We have been so grateful for the feedback we have received over this time, it has been the fuel we needed to keep going. Sadly, we have made the decision to temporarily stop producing and releasing new videos. The reason for stopping is that as lockdown restrictions start to ease across the country, we are now planning for our re-opening. Like many businesses it isn’t simply a case of re-opening our doors. Once the government gives the green light to leisure / hospitality industry businesses to open we need to ensure that we are providing a safe play environment for you and our staff. Therefore, our short-term focus is on refurbishing and re-designing our Play Centre to ensure we can offer socially distanced play sessions. If all goes to plan, we are hoping to be inviting you back in early July. We are embracing the changes that are imposed on us as an opportunity to re-think how we deliver our play sessions.

For this week's LEGO building challenge video the Brickies team plan to boldly go where no minifigure has gone before... Mars. We have two fun space themed building challenges for all our LEGO loving fans to build along to. Our videos are designed for children aged 5 - 11 years old but LEGO fans of all ages can join in the building fun. We have featured a photo of Johan Alexanderson's - Space Castle. We think it is an epic build and if you like it too you can support it on LEGO Ideas - https://ideas.lego.com/projects/7f7ca4dc-752d-48b6-a979-0f3b365894ec FUN FACTS ABOUT MARS As this week's building mission is all about Mars we think it is a fun idea to talk about some facts with your children whilst building along to the video. Learning through play can be a great way to digest information and connect with a topic. Check out National Geographic for Kids for more fun facts about Mars. Mars and Earth have approximately the same landmass. Mars is home to the tallest mountain in the solar system. Mars has the largest dust storms in the solar system. On Mars the Sun appears about half the size as it does on Earth. We love to see your creations that you have built at home. Please send your [...]
