There was a neat area for the kids to play in, with all kinds of giant lego things. I have to suppress my love of legos a bit - you can't crave legos and possess a credit card. It's like crossing the streams.

Compared to the lego kids section, the BMW booth looked like the remnants of a yard sale. There was no interesting lighting or basic thought to design. The vehicles were setup in a rough grid, pointing the same way, like statues waiting for the sunrise. I walked through it twice without seeing a counter or anywhere with information, which I didn't want anyway. I'm sure they could have gotten an industrial design student to work up some basic ideas of them for free. It was all very unexpected from a company that historically tries a lot harder.
