lego tiger

My little guy LOVES animals! As a matter of fact if I could pick anything that gets him excited it’s a lion…or a tiger (which he sometimes thinks is the same thing as a lion). That’s why I am super excited about the new summer exhibit at the Bronx Zoo! It’s their LEGO wildlife forest exhibit!

This summer, journey to the Bronx Zoo Wild Forest to check out giant LEGO sculptures of tigers, flamingos, gorillas, and other exotic wildlife, then visit their real-life counterparts around the zoo. Build your own LEGO sculptures at their construction zone, and enjoy Wildlife Theater performances and the hit musical puppet show, Avenue Zoo.

There is so much to see and do that it’s hard to tell you about it all…but here are some of the highlights!

LEGO Construction Zone

With thousands of colorful LEGO bricks to choose from, kids can create their own sculptures of animals and help complete a vibrant Mystery Mural display at Dancing Crane Plaza. They will also display visitors’ own LEGO creations on bookshelves for all to see.

LEGO Family Challenge

How long will it take you to build your favorite animal out of LEGO bricks? Join LEGO Master Builder Dan Steininger as you compete with other families to find out who is fastest! Dan will offer tips and challenge participants to build wild animals including poison dart frogs, giraffes, and more.
