OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (KCTV) – A new store in Overland Park is celebrating its opening today, in hopes of bringing out the child in all of us.
There was already a line long before the new KC Brick Store even opened.
The store buys and sells new and used Lego. It is the only store of its kind in the metro.
“Yeah, it’s a dream come true,” Dan Barton said.
Dan and Eric Barton have been collecting Lego for years, preparing for this day.
There are Lego sets, individual bricks and Lego people.
“I like to separate people and train new people,” said a client named Andrew.
Some people are looking for specific Legos.
“Maybe I’m looking for knights, swords and helmets,” said Victor Yarin.
There is a lot to go through.
“It’s a lot,” Yarin said. “The most I’ve seen in one place at a time. Definitively. Like, a trillion here in one place.
“I have fun rearranging Legos,” said customer Rubner Sanchez. “You can build whatever you want.”
“It’s a really well-organized store,” Yarin said. “For example, for the first used Lego store in Kansas City, they’re doing a great job.”
“It’s been really good,” Dan Barton said. “We’ve had a lot of people come up to us and say, ‘You know, this is something we’ve needed in the area for a long time. I’m so glad you did this.
He said there was still more to come. He said he ran out of time before he could lay it all out.
“There will always be something new,” he said. “There will always be a different store every time you walk in.”
The Bartons plan to hold events at the store, such as build parties and competitions. They even organize birthday parties.
