PRESS ADVISORY: BUILDING THE CITY OF SANTA BARBARA OUT OF 40,000 LEGO® PIECES

On Saturday, April 28th, Play-Well TEKnologies will be collaborating with the Carrillo Recreation Center and families in the community to build Santa Barbara out of 20,000 LEGO® Bricks. Families will have the opportunity to create Santa Barbara, as they would like to see it. The event is free to families. Families get to tackle these questions through play:

  • If you had the chance to design Santa Barbara, how would you design it?
  • What else would you add to the county that you currently think is missing?
  • How would you make Santa Barbara County even better than it is now?

Families will have the opportunity to explore their creativity through play with the help of 20,000 LEGO® Bricks.We will be running two FREE workshops from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM -12:00 PM.

We hope to see you there!

Frequently Asked Questions About Our City Builds:

What do these city builds look like?

Can I drop my kid off at the event?

  • We ask that parents stay with their kids at all times

Will the kids get to keep their LEGO® creations after the event is over?

Can kids bring their own LEGO pieces to add to the city?

  • We ask that kids keep their LEGO® pieces at home as we would not want them to lose their favorite LEGO® pieces

Can we just drop-in to build without registering?

  • Unfortunately, no walk-ins will be allowed as space is limited.

We aren’t able to make it to the event but would love for you to come to our neighborhood or school. Is that possible?

This is a FREE event for kids ages 5+. Only kids need tickets

5 Years After Breaking A World Record For Charity, The Dreamcatcher Playground Is Complete

5 years ago, we collaborated the Rotary Dreamcatcher Playground Team, Conejo Recreation and Park DistrictRotary International to break a World Record for charity.  The goal was to bring awareness and raise funds for a state-of-the-art playground for special needs children.

That dream was recently fulfilled with the opening of the Rotary Dreamcatcher Playground.  We feel really lucky to be able to help at the beginning of this campaign.
