I’ve done it again! I’ve produced a lego fanatic. Who knew that at the tender age of 1 you could spend so many happy hours giving lego pieces to your Mum? Yes, I need to watch her like a hawk to make sure she doesn’t eat the little pieces, but its lovely to see that even at that age, the creativity is there.
So that makes three of them, the Costello Lego-ettes. There’s certainly no shortage of the little bricks in our house – in fact, there’s a huge bucket of Lego that my husband used to play with as a child, in residence at my Mother-in-laws. Perfect for all the 10 grandchildren of various ages to pore over.
If you have produced a family of Lego lovers, you may be interested in entering competition to win a family ticket to visit LEGOLAND Manchester (2 adults, 2 children)
The Legoland Centre is situated in the Home Section of the world famous Trafford Centre. We have been a couple of times and found it breaks up a marathon shopping session for the kids.
When you go in there is a short child-orientated talk on the lego bricks themselves and then you go up to the Discovery Centre itself. There is a huge soft play area right next to the café and even a little indoor fairground area.
And then there’s the lego! There’s mountains of it – some areas are ideal for tiny children as they have the big blocks and the vehicle making area is ideal for the bigger kids (the parents!) – I did suspect 2 dads I saw might have words as they both wanted the same set of wheels!
The tickets are valid until the end of 2012. You can find out more about the LEGOLAND Discover Centre at http://www.legolanddiscoverycentre.co.uk/manchester/ including opening hours.
To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment telling me what you would make if you had 100 lego pieces.
For an extra entry you can tweet the following (leaving another comment to let me know you have done so) “I’ve entered @CasaCostello’s fabulous competition to win a family ticket to Manchester’s LEGOLAND Discover Centre http://nblo.gs/CwBOC ”
The winner will be chosen by a random number generator and will be sent the tickets as soon as possible after their details have been given. The competition closes on Friday 5th October at 9PM.
Good Luck and Have a wonderful time – Happy Building!
Congratulations go to Sarah Davies on winning the Legoland tickets. Thanks and Huge congrats!
