Brickmania Toyworks

The Real LegoLand. 

Tucked away in the bowels of the Thorp Building, Brickmania Toyworks is a veritable wonderland for Lego enthusiasts.

In case you were wondering where you can pick up unofficial custom lego brick kits under themes such as modern military, world war 1 & 2, medieval castles, and pirates, Brickmania ought to be your destination.

Operating only online or as a vendor at Lego conventions nationwide, this quirky retailer used to open its warehouse doors to the public each second Saturday of the month. However, starting in 2017, they discontinued their open-house events. Their website indicates they plan to have limited access events in December, and now have retail locations in the nearby Great Mall of America and in Schaumberg, Illinois.

Know Before You Go

To find the retail outlet, take the blue line light rail service (from downtown Minneapolis or the airport) to Mall of America, which is the end of the line.
