LEGO store IndianapolisGreat news for Lego fans of all ages: The privately held Danish company known for its toy construction sets is planning its first Indiana store, at Castleton Square Mall. The roughly 1,200-square-foot shop is scheduled to open in late March or early April, said Julie Stern, a Lego brand relations manager. The stores, which feature play tables and kid-friendly displays, have been known to draw customers from hours away. The store will be the company's 53rd in the United States. Lego, founded by a Danish carpenter in 1932, is now a global brand that has branched out from its trademark interlocking bricks. Its offerings now include robotics kits, video games, four Legoland amusements parks and a business consultancy where managers use Lego bricks to envision potential improvements to their companies. A note for parents: The new Lego store will offer free sets to the first 250 children under 14 on the first Tuesday of every month.

  • OMG!!!!
    I'm excited about this......not going to lie.....
  • Excited
    I have grown up with Legos and can't wait for this.
  • Yippee
    I'm going to take my 4yo son here when it opens but truth be told, I'll play with them more than he will. You never outgrow Legos.
  • Exciting!
    Very cool! Can't wait to take the kids.
  • AWESOME
    CAN'T WAIT!.. I will have a very excitd 8 year old!
  • Question
    What space will it occupy?
  • Not Going to Lie
    I am 30 and I am pumped for this. More so than my own children.
  • Eek!
    yeah... this will be the scariest lego store in the world! Castleton is becoming Lafayette Square.
    • Uh-Oh
      There goes my paycheck. I go to Chicago a couple of times a year and the Lego store is always my first stop.
    • different venue
      It would have been cool to see this go in Circle Center given the tourism/convention business like Mall of America. Perhaps the demographics aren't there.
      • seriously?!?!
        Have you ever been to either of those malls? There is an enormous difference between them. If you're that scared of Castleton, then how do you manage to leave your house everyday?
      • Ha Ha
        Murph, I was about to say the same thing! I've never heard of anyone calling the Castleton area "unsafe"!
      • stay home
        Croner, if you're that scared of Castleton, don't go. There is a large discrepancy between the demographics of Lafayette Sq and Castleton. You're the reason online shopping was invented - now you won't get in my way at the Lego store. Everybody wins!
      • Dissin the Laf2
        Dont you dare be hatin on Laf Square. It's a moped riders dream... Ever think about that? Huh?
        I think Castleton is a dump. So there!
      • huh?
        "a moped riders dream"? Can someone please explain what that means exactly because I really want to know.
      • search for facts
        I believe many of you will be interested to know that you are more likely to die in a car crash driving to casleton square than you would be to be a victim of violent crime at one of the other stores.
      • lego fear
        croner seems to either be afraid of black people or danish toys. lets say both and enjoy a chance to get more of the 1x4 reds that always turn up missing.
      • Yay for Indy!!!!!
        I cannot wait! I have several nieces and nephews who love Legos and I love building stuff with them! I may have to refigure my budget to take full advantage of this!
      • When will it open, where?
        It is going to be where the Brookstone was this year. That is according to the info booth in the mall.
        Now when will it officially open?
      • Nice!
        I'm glad to know I'm not the only grown man that is still in love with Legos!
      • YEA!
        Awesome!
      • COOL!
        Cant wait till it opens.WE were planing to go Feb 26 2011 for my sons birthday my mom told me it was opened but i just found out its not.Thats ok were from Muncie but i will be taking him to visit alot he loves LEGOS.Happy 10th Birthday SEAN .....
      • GHETTO
        GHETTO LEGO
      • circle city mall
        The reason is that circle city mall is very ghetto anymore. Crime and thugs hang out. Sad but true.

      1. The Walgreens did not get a lot of traffic. It was not located on the corner of the intersection, and not really visible from Emerson. Meanwhile the CVS there is huge and right on the corner. I am guessing a lot of people drove by a million times and never knew the Walgreens was there. Although, with the new Walmart market going in, that area could really see a lot of increase in traffic soon.

      2. You folks don't have a clue. There is a legal way to enter this country and to get aid. This left unchecked could run us to ruin quickly. I also heard that 'supporters' were getting major $$ to take them in? Who's monitoring this and guess who pays the bill? I support charitable organizations... but this is NOT the way to do it!

      3. Apparently at some time before alcohol has been served at the fair. The problem is that beer or wine used to be a common drink for people before soft drinks and was not thought to be that unusual. Since many folks now only drink to see how much they can drink or what kind of condition they can end up in it becomes more problematic. Go to Europe and its no big deal just as if you had sodas of milk to drink everyday. Its using common sense that is lacking now days.

      4. To address the epic failure of attracting race fans to both the Indy 500 and Brickyard 400 would take too much of my time to write. Bottom line Boles is clueless and obviously totally out of touch with the real paying fan base. I see nothing but death spin coming for the Brickyard, just like Indy. Get somebody in a place of power that understands what race fans want.

      5. I am a race fan through & through. It doesn't matter if it's Indy cars or Nascar. I love a great race. I go to several other tracks each year and you can see the entire track. I know Indy has tradition, but fans want to see the entire race. I sit in the Penthouse, am almost 60 years old, and would like to see a better TV screen in turn 1 so you can see the entire race. Then I think Indy needs to install an escalator so us old folks can make it up to the Penthouse and down again if we want more options to purchase food and drinks. Just a race fans opinion. Lights won't make the race any better, but you might be able to see the TV better at night. Turn 1's screen needs replaced with a better and bigger screen.
