Today is Take Your Child to Work Day, and I am currently with my mini-me at the TTPM Spring 2018 Showcase. What a fun way to spend the day with my daughter letting her see the work I do as a blogger and she gets to play with some of the most exciting innovations in toys and children’s lifestyle products from the top toy brands in the industry. One of them being LEGO.

LEGO builders can even lower the lap bars to secure the riders into the cars and release the brake to send the train to the foot of the first climb. Then activate the chain lift and enjoy the ride as the gravity-driven cars hurtle through the Roller Coaster’s twists and turns. That sounds cool!
