Lego Flagship Store: Copenhagen
I have 3 absolute and unexplainable passions in life: filmmaking, running and Lego.
So when I heard we were heading to Denmark (land of Lego), I knew I needed to make it my mission to visit the Lego Flagship Store in Copenhagen.
Before the flight, I looked around the web, trying to find some brick themed info about the illusive Lego flagship.
What could I expect to see? What would I expect to find?
Would there be hidden gems of a bygone Lego age or an unreleased Minifigures exclusive only to the brave jet setting Lego fans? Could there be Lego lines long abandoned or sets so limited in release, they’d never even left the country?
I had to know and after a very short Google search, I found mounds of underwhelming Trip Advisor statements eluding to pretty much nothing.
Even Lego brick fanatic sites were less than helpful.
But something deep and pure geek burned inside me, the Lego Mothership was calling, it needed to be seen.
Check out the video of our experience at the Lego Store, Copenhagen below:
Well the Lego Flagship Store was big but it definitely wasn’t massive and it definitely wasn’t the biggest Lego shop I’d seen, (the ‘Big One’ at Legoland Windsor is about twice the size) but there was something quite magical about the place.
From the scale Lego models of Nyhavn, to the incredible pick and mix wall and 15 foot high Lego mosaic in the entrance, the spirit of Lego creativity was strong in Copenhagen. Every new face that walked in (mostly adults) were whisked back to their childhood, sat on the floor creating universes of their own. Meanwhile every child rushed to the build stations and Duplo corner to build anything they could in the two minutes before their dad took over.
Sadly, there were no old or exclusive models or sets forgotten by time, just the new ones already available in the UK. Also, the price was pretty expensive, being about 10% more than the UK.
But the store was special and although it may not appear on any tourist map or Lonely Planet guide, I thing the Lego Flagship definitely deserves its place as a place to visit.
