With over 3 million pieces and over 20 Shanghai landmarks rebuilt brick by brick, there’s been much buzz over the brand new Legoland Discovery Center in Putuo District, which opened on April 2. But now we really have something to cling to — or rather, something to build upon — as the first pictures are released, showing a swarm of jubilant kids having the time of their lives. We are sure you will have no problem getting the kids here on a weekend.

Highlights include the towering Lujiazui skyline, by night...006d8gNkjw1f25omfxi72j30xm0m8gq7-48b024.jpg...and by day.weibo10-ea327f.jpgThere's a model Bund...weibo17-90bca0.jpgA model China Art Museum...weibo15-bbfc67.jpgTiny people on your favorite bridge...weibo11-a9e95e.jpg...and opportunities to shoot stuff!weibo2-959539.jpgThe park is interactive, with all sorts of building activities or, in this case, piloting a rowing team:006d8gNkjw1f2pbm7uxfej31kw13hdsm-15ba15.jpgAs well as houses made from huge blocks, with slides!006d8gNkjw1f2pbnsjnkwj31kw182grg-8295e3.jpgBooks!
