Lego a family passion

Marcus Sargent and his daughter Lily (5) share a passion for Lego building.

INVERCARGILL resident Marcus Sargent had his love of bricks rekindled some time ago, and has been happily building ever since.

Now, building with Lego has become a family affair, as he and his wife shared their love for the colourful blocks with their eldest daughter, Lily.

Lily was the youngest exhibitor at the Brick Show last weekend, which showcased about 30 Lego displays at ILT Stadium Southland.

“It is our first time here at the show and it was something that Lily wanted to do.

“We have a selection of Lily’s favourite sets that we have at home,” he said.

Mr Sargent said it was great to be able to share the experience with his daughter.

“It certainly helps people form a creative brain and help with logical thinking, so it is great to be able to share this with the kids.”

Lego Users Group South secretary Gavin Evans agreed, and said the bricks were special for all generations. “You can do whatever you want. There’s nothing that can limit you apart from your own imagination.”
