Would You Like To Build Your City out of LEGO® Bricks?

For the past 5 years, we have helped cities around the country build their city out of LEGO® bricks with their community.  We have done small cities, big cities, sometimes even entire countries, all made out of thousands of LEGO® pieces.  Let us know if you’d like us to build your city out of LEGO® Bricks by clicking here.  Check out some of our city builds below:

Curious George, KQED, and Play-Well!

We recently participated in KQED’s Annual Donor Appreciation Day.  The theme of the event was Curious George.  So, we decided to create the trains, planes, automobiles and the city that Curious George plays with.  Luckily, we had the help of some awesome LEGO Engineers to help us build.

We brought over 20,000 pieces of LEGO for kids to help us build Curious George’s city!

Designing A LEGO Model of Boulder JCC

On Sunday, October 14th, 2012, we collaborated with the Boulder JCC in Colorado for their Kids Capital Campaign “Day of Building.”  Our Play-Well Design Team created a LEGO model of Boulder JCC, which was revealed to 250 of Boulder JCC’s members.  Here is a picture of the LEGO Model of Boulder JCC:

The model was initially designed in SF by our Design Team and then shipped to Colorado. Here is it right before it got packed away for its trip.

With all their members, we had ice cream, built more LEGO structures, and celebrated the unveiling of the LEGO Boulder JCC.  Here are pictures of the event.

The best part of the day was seeing budding architects inspired to build cool structures on this Kids Capital Campaign  Day of Building.

If you would like us to  design a LEGO Model for your organization or would like us to be a part of one of your events, feel free to email us jeff@play-well.org.
