Encouraging children to be the building ‘bricks’ of their own future

In the land of toys and imaginary creatures resides the wondrous world of tiny humans. It is these young leaders who deserve to be treated, encouraged and celebrated for their potential to create a brighter future for generations to come.

National Child Day commemorates two key documents solidifying children’s rights: The United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. These documents give Canadian children the rights to make important decisions, be protected, and most importantly, be treated with respect.

“LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto gives kids a platform to interact and innovate with other young minds,” says Lara Hannaford, Marketing Manager. “It also gives parents an opportunity to engage and bond with their little ones, as they use their imagination to create something wonderful and unique.”

On November 20th, LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto will be offering $3 off their regular walk-in admission in honour of National Child Day.

Tickets provide access to all aspects of the attraction, including:

· The 4D Cinema – Take a seat in the fantastic, awe-inspiring theatre where snow, wind and rain are just the beginning of this interactive adventure.

· Kingdom Quest Laser Ride – Climb aboard the mighty chariot, zap the dangers with your laser gun and rescue the princess.

· LEGO Racers: Build & Test – Put your building skills to the test by building, racing and timing your LEGO planes, trains and automobiles.

“With several workshops to challenge their creative minds, children can walk into LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto and feel larger than life,” adds Lara. “The Centre gives youngsters the opportunity to build a world they’re proud to live in, and gives us the opportunity to celebrate the innovative minds of tomorrow.”
