A wall-to-wall Lego paradise

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

They have buckets and buckets and buckets of colorful Legos. Oh and did we mention they have Legos at Bricks for Kidz in South Tampa?

Christiana Moseley is the owner.

"This is nothing like anybody has ever seen before," Moseley said.

Bricks for Kidz is kind of like Lego-school for little ones.

"Lego enthusiasts absolutely love this because it's a new thing every time," she said.

The puzzle piece-like classes are offered after school for field trips and birthday parties, and there are also special week-long camps. The motto: We learn, we build, we play.

"If we're building an airplane, they'll learn about the invention of who built the first airplane," Moseley said. "Then they'll build an airplane that moves with battery packs and motors."

But it's not all beating boredom through blocks - the kids are also exploring engineering, architecture and developing problem solving skills.

Mother Vicki Brewer enrolled her son in a week long camp. She said her 7-year-old is Lego mad.

"It just fitted him perfectly," she said.

Parents love that their kids' minds and hands are at hard at work.

"I just thought he's going to learn and have fun," Brewer said.

And what kid doesn't love wall-to-wall Legos?

"It's because they have cool stuff," 5-year-old Elli Land told us about his love for Legos.

"That you get to build stuff and sort of be an engineer," 7-year-old Jed Brewer said.

And in between making a boat or maybe a motorized windmill, the kids aren't even aware of what else they're learning.

"Self-confidence, teamwork - we have them build in pairs so they are always learning something new," Moseley said.

Just in case you had a question, you don't need to bring your own Lego set. There are plenty right here.

April Kellog's "Mom, I'm bored," series will continue all week on Good Day Tampa Bay.
