AUBURN HILLS, MI (WNEM) -

For most children, Legos are an essential part of growing up.

Whether it's learning shapes and colors or how to build a life-size structure, the classic toy has been a part of childhoods for generations.

There's a Lego paradise for kids and adults at Legoland Discovery Center in Auburn Hills.

"Everyone loves Lego bricks. It's a beautiful facility, very colorful, highly themed. Just so much to do and of course we have tons of building areas," said Debbie Gibb, with Legoland Discovery Center.

The center is recommended for kids aged 3 to 10 and offers lots of hands on activities.

"What would it be if you couldn't play with the Lego bricks," Gibb said.

Along with rides and a 4D movie theater, one of the most popular features in Mini-land.

"It's a large area of iconic buildings around Detroit. So we've got the Renaissance Center and Fox Theatre and Comerica Park. It turns from day to night so people are just amazed that this could be done out of Lego bricks," Gibb said.

The center even has its own master builder. He gets paid to play with Legos and comes up with some pretty amazing creations.

"My job is to come up with really cool models that we can put on display here at the attraction," said Clint Parry, master builder.

He said his passion for Legos started when he was 4-years-old and he's been intrigued by the toy's possibilities ever since.

"What's wonderful about Lego is that it's so simple, but you can use it to build anything you want," Parry said.

Legoland is open 365 days a year inside the Great Lakes Crossing Mall.
