Is Your Child a Mini Master Model Builder? Head to Legoland Manchester to find out! And maybe win £500!

As an AFOL (adult fan of Lego) – yes Millennium Falcon 75192, I have my eyes on you – I’m delighted to see my kids getting into Lego and for that reason will be heading down to the Manchester Legoland Mini Master Model Builder Competition! The skills that it helps develop – the creativity, the problem solving, the spatial awareness and manual dexterity are so beneficial for a child’s development it’s one toy that I will never say no to buying and I just love watching (and helping) them build.
