I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every individual creator, designer, architect. You are so innovative and creative, you have at times blown my mind!

LEGO Quest has had the pleasure of inspiring over 400 kids in over 10 countries, all designing together! I will take a leave now, as our warm weather is calling me outside to play with my kids. See you in September!
