City Lego addicts beat boredom
LEGO might be more than 60 years old but it's still charming Ipswich children.
Children from across Ipswich made their way to Mr Toys Toyworld at Redbank Plaza yesterday to kick off their school holidays.
The three sessions throughout the day were packed with kids who could be Ipswich's future designers, architects and engineers.
Constructions ranged from red elephants to buildings and gardens, to the more artistic with the construction of letters and numbers.
The top piece from every session will be put on display inside Mr Toys Toyworld Redbank throughout the week, with the final winner to be declared on Monday.
The competitions were just some of many holiday activities across the Ipswich region.
They ranged from gardening to music to video games at the many shopping centres across the city.
