I couldn't get a connection last night so, without further delay . . . the mega Lego City Space collection giveaway winners are . . .
my personal pick: Rachel from Little Angel Little Devil blog who wrote this beautiful entry "My son builds the most amazing lego, he spends hours planning and building his creations either from the instructions but mostley straight out of his brain. His Lego creations have wowed the year 6 kids at school..but most importantly his teachers! My son is not doing so well in school, he is way behind in his reading, writing and has the concentration of a gold fish. His teachers have held very real concerns. Over the period they have come to know my son's lego (I'm going to say it.. talent) and have actually re evaluated how they think he learns. They now say he clearly has the ability to focus, the maths he uses to build some of the things he builds is brilliant and the fact that everything down to the colours used are perfect in balance and proportion indicate that he is actually very bright. I can not tell you what a relief this is to me!! Lego has helped his confidence to soar which was so very low for so long. I am very proud of my son and proud of the amazing creations that he builds from his beloved Lego. Thank you Posie for running a great comp! xx"

I loved Duplo for my children when they were younger, i wish this Duplo Hospital was around then. I was always the patient when playing doctors & nurses with my siblings, you never know, my bossy brother doctor did grow up to be a surgeon!! The other one turned out to be a rocket scientist, he was a bit more into pretending i was a robot. My sister wasn't interested at all, she's a ballerina but my path was pharmacology!! We had the Fisher Price hospital, our mum has kept it too.
Also freshly launched . . . Lego iTunes (if you're like me you'll get your children to down load these). Now for the official word:
