I dont understand why everyone is hating on this place. It seems fun. They put it out there, in a way that connects with a lot of people, that Lego and food don't mix. Big deal. It's the adults who really want the food at these things, not the kids, if it's all done properly. Can i just say to all the downers out there that think they should set up hand washing practices....how do you suppose they force kids to wash their hands or force parents to ensure hands are clean before touching Lego? Not everyone has the same respectful and cleanliness standards, and they are just ensuring that this doesn't taint the kids experiences. As so many people on this comment thread have written... I hope you read this, so you know not everyone that can type is an entitled brat.

Interesting comments, I am looking at starting a Lego store in a diff State but we will have a food area and a Duplo area and a lego area and a technic area... to keep everyone happy.
Will also have a washing area (maybe) to wash the bricks, not the kids.

Sounds disappointing. We once went to a Lego party (when they were in Moonee Ponds, Hall Street) and I was kind of shocked there wasn't food and had a plastic cake (GASP!), which we all sang Happy Birthday around. Pretty sad isn't it? But we had fun otherwise. No drinks or food allowed and by golly, I want a coffee and talk to other parents/guardians. It's a party, not a sterile playdate. A Lego party there and then food elsewhere becomes quite a costly affair. I hope they're listening

Sounds great! Will definitely check it out! Appalled to the comments. People can be so harsh. If the place doesn't suit, simple, don't go! Half of these people haven't even been there!!!! No food policy- great! We can eat afterwards, no big deal. It's not Mc Donald's, it's a Lego centre. And frankly it makes sense to have no food there. If you like Lego, then go, if u are just going to criticize because you want to be ignorant and arrogant, then rant on, but you sound ridiculous.

The Lego Learning centre sounds absolutely pathetic-I put it all down to poor management!I am on holiday from South Africa and was planning on visiting because my son asked me to have a look as he is Lego mad.I won't bother now.It sounds like an awful place.It's amazing how poor management can mess things up.I have seen it all of my life.

I too was going to take the kids on the school holidays. But not after the comments here. Sticky fingers and lego? Of course they don't mix. But I have a five year old Lego-obsessed boy, a 20mth old girl (who is already building) and the biggest Lego collection of anyone that we know. It is immaculately clean. Why? Because the kids respect the Lego and know they have to clean their hands after eating. We even have a saying in our house now: "Lego clean?" Which means "have you cleaned your hands well enough that you could play Lego?" Would it be that hard to initiate a "clean hands properly after eating" policy? My son's kindergarten has Lego and it is immaculate as well. Make it fun and part of the play, and both kids and parents will be happy to comply in order to look after the lego properly. Sounds like this place just doesn't like kids.

Had my son's 5th birthday party there and everytime I came to sort and prepare things before hand, they were always unfriendly and short. On the day of the party, there were no smiles for my son or the guests. They told off my gf who had 16 month old twins for eating a strawberry while in their pram because of their no food policy and because they didn't want to clean it up afterwards"? um, it's you job to keep the store tidy?!?! and what damage would 16 month old girls do while in their pram?? Not going back again.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I too was looking to hold my sons 7th Birthday there and was surprised about the NO FOOD policy. What is a party without food. Won't even be going to check it out.

Disappointing. No customer service. Bad attitudes. Disorganised. Rude.
Don't go spending money here. They won't like it if you try.

If you want to have some real fun with LEGO check out www.insidethebrick.com They run great LEGO clubs and even do LEGO parties in your home.

We went to the new Docklands Lego Education Centre for 'Funday Sunday'. For a supposedly fun place there are a lot of rigid rules and no smiles or great attitude on any staff. One of those places where things are just too much trouble and designed to make it easy on the staff rather than the customers. They could only be surviving as a business because it is Lego. What great potential and opportunity this is, but totally wasted. Not surprising Sunday Funday was quiet as. We were hoping to have our 7th birthday there. We love Star Wars and Ninjago but we can't have a party themed with either of these. Why wouldn't you create party themes that matched popular Lego products/sets?? And no food allowed even though they have a great set up with two separate rooms, one which is used for the party and the other for 'education sessions' which are obviously not on when there is a party on so hard to see why that is not possible. Apparently 'sticky fingers and lego don't mix' which is pretty reflective of the whole atmosphere. Kind of like going to your aunty's who puts plastic on the lounge before you get to sit down. And in anycase surely you would try to get some kind of partnership going
