LEGO Masters, we want you!

10th June 2020

The LEGO room at Bill Richardson Transport World is back in business!

Now that we’ve moved into Level One, this family favourite within our collection has been reopened and we’re looking for some little LEGO masters to put a smile on the faces of our guests.

Our display cases are in need of some brightening up and we’d love to showcase creations made by your little ones.

We’re calling on Southland’s kids to design, create and build some epic LEGO masterpieces, which we’d love to loan from you and put on display for Winter 2020. If you’re keen on showcasing your talent and love for LEGO – plus the chance to earn some bragging rights – now is the perfect time to get building.

We’d also like to accompany each LEGO creation with some details about the effort each child put into their work. Once your child has finished their build, please bring it – and written answers to the below questions – into the gift shop here at Bill Richardson Transport World. We want to know:


Name and age of child

What they have built

How long it took to design and create the build

The hardest part of building their masterpiece

What they like best about their work
