  1. i have fun with lego lego is my favourite pass time time to do i cann6live without playing with lego

  2. Hi
    Thanks for this great initiative.
    My son is almost 5 years (4 years 8 months) old, but he is quite comfortable and loves using lego classic and small bricks, rather than duplo or big blocks. He has been using them for over an year now.
    Could I please register him in the category B (5-7 years).
    Hoping for a positive response.

  3. Hi

    Can any kid in that age group participate? Does the child need to be physically located in India?

    Thanks.

  4. You have mentioned LEGO Technic. What comes under that as my son has mixed all the series of LEGO he had..

    1. for category A – blocks or duplo, catergory B,C,D can use classic bricks from any series of lego

    1. for each category lego is the material but apart from that you can use magna tiles, clay, jenga, hotwheels etc and use the art pack which is available for download
