Boys are Lego pros at Kingaroy Shoppingworld

LEGO lovers are united these school holidays in competitions of the imagination to see who can whip up the best Lego creation in 20 minutes or less.

Brothers Edward and Richard Griffiths went head to head in the Monday morning heat of the Lego building competition at Kingaroy Shoppingworld.

The brothers come from a house of Lego lovers and showed off imagination and creativity in their creations.

Edward loves that with Lego, you are free to go where your mind takes you.

"You don't need to follow instructions, you can do whatever you want," Edward said.

Lego can be loved by children but is a danger to every bare foot in the house, as mum Melissa Griffiths knows well. She has one rule to ensure she never feels the pain of stepping on a piece of Lego.

"They know if I step on it, they lose it," Mrs Griffiths said. "We have five children and Lego is the best thing to happen."

Winners and runners-up of each heat will compete in Saturday's final at 11.30am on October 3 in Kingaroy Shoppingworld.

The Lego competition will be there all week with four heats a day: heat one for ages 3-7 at 10.30am and heat two for ages 8-14 at 11.30 and then again in the afternoon at 12.30pm and 1.30pm.
