** NOW CLOSED ** Enter our LEGO Bionicle Giveaway

LEGO BionicleMy seven-year-old has recently fallen in love with the LEGO Bionicle collecton. I asked him to share some thoughts on why he likes it so much for this post.

A man of few words, he told me “they’re cool and fun”.

When I probed some more so he added that “they’re trying to capture a gold helmet, except for the aliens who are trying to keep it safe from them. My favourite one is the purple person.” He also wants me to add that he “likes their weapons”.

He was very excited to open his LEGO Bionicle package when it arrived in the post. LEGO + battles + hero monsters… Just his kind of thing.

The creatures are a trickier level of LEGO – the pack we received is for 6-12 year olds – but he set to it and carefully constructed his LEGO Ketar Creature of Stone in one sitting.

Having created his LEGO creature it was great for him to see them come to life in the new LEGO Bionicle DVD released last week.

The Volume 1 DVD includes two episodes and is rated PG for mild animated violence.

** Our LEGO Bionicle giveaway is now closed **

Congratulations to AmberB who has won the DVD plus a LEGO Ketar Creature of Stone.

Competition ended 24 August 2016. Please see full terms and conditions.
