There are some toys that children love, generation after generation, and LEGOs are among them.
A store dedicated entirely to LEGOs will be opening at Westfarms in the Spring. Another will open at Danbury Fair Mall at the end of March.
There are 78 LEGO stores across the country, but the Westfarms location will be the company’s first Hartford-area store.
The United States headquarters for LEGO is in Enfield.

“Our store at Westfarms will enhance our consumers’ overall LEGO brand experience through product variety, store design and regular hands-on family events,” Eric Wolfe, vice president of the LEGO Group, said about the Westfarms location in a statement. “Children and families will be able to experience first-hand and hands-on the creativity and imagination that goes into LEGO building and be inspired by the over 4 million LEGO bricks that are in the store at any given time.”
The store will have a “Pick-A-Brick Wall,” where you can hand pick and purchase specific LEGO bricks, and the “Living Room,” interactive play area.
“In keeping with our commitment to bring unique retailers to our shoppers we are excited to see LEGO open its first Hartford area store at Westfarms,” Kevin Keenan, general manager, Westfarms, said in a statement. “The LEGO Store is an excellent addition to our exceptional lineup of merchants and will definitely appeal to a broad range of customers, both young and old. We look forward to welcoming them this spring.”
