Such concentration - we take this Lego business very seriously!

The winning moon buggy.

We’ve spent today with Kevin’s parents which meant it was time for the most important competition of the year – the Christmas Lego Challenge! Every year Kevin’s parents buy three matching Lego vehicles which Kevin, his brother Martin and I put together against the clock and against each other. I evidently spent too much of my childhood playing with Lego as I almost always win – and today was no exception. I smashed last year’s record time by completing my Moon Buggy in three minutes and twenty five seconds – a full thirty seven seconds faster than in 2010!

I hope everyone here on Photoblog has had a wonderful day and that you all have a fantastic 2012. Happy Christmas!

danrav Helen, this is such a cool tradition. I love it! Such concentration.
I want you to know that I just rushed out to the Toy's R Us store and purchased this same toy.I completed it in two minutes and 51 seconds. It was a snap. Elementary really. Why did it take you so long?


april fools a few months early. Did you feel the least bit of envy???? Merry Christmas - you are still the champ of Lego!

djnana This is darling, Helen! Our school has a Lego League and goes to national competitions each year, many of which they win. They could use a new coach, if you're available, oh great Lego Legend!
