Last week we took the family to Legoland California. It was Johnny’s first time going, and the twins hadn’t been to the park in several year. We’ve been hesitant to go because we thought our little ones might be too small to enjoy any of the attractions. What we found was that there is plenty for a toddler or preschooler to do at Legoland, and our little ones had a blast!
Why your toddler or preschooler will love Legoland California
My husband and I have been to Legoland with our oldest, and I went recently with my class of 6th graders. We had no idea that little ones could find so much to be excited about while visiting Legoland. The experience was nonstop excitement for the twins and Johnny.
There is something fun to see around every corner
There literally IS something exciting around every corner. The kids were amazed by the bridge at the very start of the park, the splash zones, and especially the kid-sized cars and Lego characters.
Even your littlest family members can go on the rides
While it’s true that very small children can’t go on some of the attractions, there are plenty of rides that they can go on with a parent. Johnny rode the helicopters with his Daddy, the girls had a blast on the race car track, and we all enjoyed the Coast Cruise boat ride.
They will fall in love with the Duplo® Playtown
This little park-type area is the perfect place for toddlers and preschoolers. There are slides, a maze, and lots of Duplo® houses to play pretend in. There is even a little train ride that takes its passengers on a tour of LEGO farm land.
The entertainment is kid-approved
LEGO Friends in Heartlake City put on a stage production called LEGO Friends to the Rescue. The Friends on stage give a peppy performance with their dance-along music and singing.
The staff are patient and kind
As a parent, it can be kind of nerve-wracking to send your totally dependent preschooler on a ride by herself. When the girls went on the Jr. Driving School without Mommy and Daddy to help them, I stood at the exit waiting for a meltdown when the girls got their cars stuck. But the meltdown never happened! Sure, their LEGO car got stuck a few times. When it did, the friendly, caring ride attendants were right there to assist the junior drivers.
Our toddler and preschoolers are still talking about all the fun they had at Legoland California. We can’t wait to take them back again. Maybe for Johnny’s birthday we can stay at the new hotel and spend 2 days there!
We’re lucky to live so close to such an amazing amusement park. Have you been to Legoland? What were your family’s favorite rides?
