Lego-loving kids are for a treat this Saturday. The Entertainer is hosting FREE Make and Take events in 50 stores nationwide, where kids can build their own Lego creations and take them home after the event.

With top billing in our guide to the best toys for six-year-olds, LEGO remains one of the most popular and best-loved toy brands in the world. So the news that youngsters of all ages can get their hands on some FREE Lego this weekend is very welcome indeed. 

Finding things to do with kids (and even making decision over LEGO Vs Playmobil) over the weekend can be a challenge, and many of us are keen to avoid costly weekend endeavours due to the ongoing cost of living crisis. But savvy parents know that cheap and even free things to do with kids are everywhere - you just need to know where to look. 

Happily, The Entertainer toy store has made that task even easier this coming weekend. They're flinging open the doors of 50 stores and welcoming kids along to FREE Lego Make and Take sessions. 

The Entertainer toy shop invites Lego fans across the UK to visit selected stores this Saturday to build their own model from the bricks provided - and they get to take their creation home absolutely free of charge.

A fun-filled day out that the whole family can enjoy, the exclusive two-hour event offers Lego lovers big and small the chance to get creative with the much-loved sets in-store, while stocks last.

Craig Lowe, events coordinator at The Entertainer, commented: “Lego Friends provides make-believe play and creative adventures for children around the world, where they can explore their passions with the iconic building bricks, so we’re delighted to be inviting Lego fans to 50 of our stores to take part in this fantastic event!”

The Entertainer’s LEGO Friends Make and Take event will run in 50 UK stores on Saturday 25th February between 2 pm and 4 pm only, so parents are advised to get to their nearest store as close to 2 pm as possible to avoid disappointment.

There's no better free activity to take advantage of this weekend, according to Goodto's Family Editor Stephanie Lowe - especially if your youngsters have already fallen in love with Lego.

"The free Make and Take events at The Entertainer are such a brilliant idea," she says. "With lots of parents wanting to spend less money - but still keen to keep the children entertained at the weekend - this a wonderful opportunity. Not only can the whole family enjoy some Lego-building fun together, but you get to add to your toy stash at home without spending a thing!"

Anyone keen to keep the kids busy indoors this Saturday should definitely consider heading to their local branch of The Entertainer. It's well worth getting there early as we predict these events will be super popular.
