On the 1st May Lego launched its brand new Minifigures series.
Series 17 and I was very lucky to be a part of that launch.
I was sent two boxes on two separate days, each containing 8 different Lego Minifigures.
The first box also came with highwayman outfit and instructions on what to do with the Minifigures....
The aim of the game was to hide the Lego Minifigure's accessories and write some clues, so the kids could hunt them out.
I had to keep my identity hidden and not let on who had hidden them.
I loved running round the house in my cape hiding all the accessories and the boys were beside themselves with excitement when they found the clues.
When I said it wasn't me who had been hiding them, that made them even more keen to find them.
Our first lot of Minifigures included;
Corn Cob Guy,
Hot Dog Vendor,
Retro Space Hero.
I made the clues easy as I wanted them all to be able to have a guess at where the hiding places were.
They were really good at taking it in turns to be the one who found the item.
They each got to find two things and then add them to the figures.
After the hunt all the Minifigures were happy to be reunited with their accessories.
Little did the boys know that, that wasn't the end of the game.
The next day the second box arrived with 8 more Lego Minifigures.
So once again I donned my cap and cape and got writing some riddles for them to solve.
This time round they wouldn't just be hunting out the missing accessories but they would also have to find out who had been hiding them in the first place.
Our second lot of Lego Minifigures included;
and the mystery figure....
The mystery figure was none other than the highwayman who had been hiding all the accessories.
Along with the final 8 of the collection I was sent another highwayman hat and some gold coins.
Once the boys had found me they were meant to get the gold, but unfortunately I was stupid and left them out and the dog got too them.
Thankfully he wasn't sick and we did get him checked over by the vet to be on the safe side.
Again the boys all worked really well during the hunt and made sure everyone got a turn in finding the missing item.
During the hunt I slipped away upstairs to change back into my outfit and hide in my hiding place....
I'm outside....but not on the ground.....!?
I was up on the balcony reading a Lego magazine.
After the hunt the boys were very happy with themselves.
They'd managed to crack the clues and reunite all the Minifigures with their accessories and for the first time ever they had a whole collection of Lego Minifigures,
including the mystery figure!!!
They also loved that they could dress up in my highwayman outfit.
Which they are still playing with a day after the hunt.
Thank You Lego for letting us be a part of the Series 17 launch!
