When a gold padded envelope dropped through my letter box, I will admit to a quickened heartbeat and the thought that maybe I’d gone and won a holiday some place hot! The envelope contained no such thing, though what it did contain, gave my son, Little man, that same quickened heartbeat when discovering it was from LEGO and contain 4 foil packs of the latest LEGO Minifigures series 6!
Little man is more than just a little bit obsessed with LEGO, it’s now roughly boarding on the same scale as his transport obsession and he has much fun combining the two!
We weren’t expecting the Minifigures that LEGO sent, and for a child who doesn’t like to be surprised, this was an exception, he was extremely chuffed at their arrival. amongst the four foil packed Minifigures (which little man ran off to open) I discovered a letter which read…
This series, the sixth motley crew is on the hunt to find the UK’s LEGO Minifigure king collector! Email us an image of your impressive LEGO Minifigure collection and the most creative display will win an exclusive limited edition LEGO minifigure prize, Happy creating.
How exciting is that!
Little man just loves his minifigures and series 6 is packed full of new and exciting colourful creations. In this series you’ll find a funky green Leprechaun, a magical Genie, a groovy clockwork robot, a delightful Flamenco dancer, and a whole load more. Each foil pack contains a minifigure, special accessories, a display stand and collectors leaflet. There are a total of 16 Minifigures to collect within series 6. Remember packs are blind foiled, meaning you can’t see what’s inside so you may well end up with doubles that you’ll need to swap with your friends.
Little man was very impressed with his minifigures, which he has added to his growing collection. He seems most keen to get his hands on the clockwork robot, so I suspect we will be popping to the shops this Friday so he can spend his pocket-money.
As you can see from below, Little man likes to customise, chopping and changing their accessories every now and then, giving his collection his own personal touch.
Will we be entering this fabulous competition? Probably… Yes, through little man is quite adamant he wants to wait till his found his clockwork robot.
So, if your child is a Lego Minifigure collector why not join us by snapping a creative picture of your child and they’re growing collection?

I’m unsure of the closing date, though I am aware a winner will be chosen in the summer!
As soon as I have found out, I’ll be sure to let you all know!
For now I thought I’d leave you all with some really awesome LEGO Minifigure facts, that the Little man just loved.
