My eldest recently was offered a LEGO Technic set by a photography friend that they had bought as a gift for a family member, but they were now unable to use it and get the intended pleasure from building it unfortunately.
Knowing our love of Lego, they asked if it was something my 2 would like as they wanted it to go to a home where it would be valued.
It duly arrived and he set about opening the packets and deciding which of the two models to build first. Once he had decided, he set about putting it together. A few errors became apparent along the way where he hadn’t followed the instruction images quite right, but with my help they were soon rectified, and after several days it was finally finished.
He did a good job, and he’s loving the use of motors to be able to move the platform up and down and around.
Of course I had to add a couple of Minifigs for the photo, now they can get on with constructing the rest of LEGO city.
