LEGO LEGO LEGO: And It's the School Holidays



What better way to celebrate the school holidays than with one of our favourite, most enduring toys of all time, LEGO!

These holidays have seen the Doctor madly reading Harry Potter, and falling in love with the characters and the magic. Next stop he wants to read Lord of the Rings. He's already started saving his pocket money for the biggest set of LEGO Lord of the Rings imaginable.

I've never been much for mystical fantasy - however with a seven year old who is crazy for it, I can't help but go along for the ride. I am hooked!

So if you have a like-minded small child who would be keen for some sweet Lord of the Rings LEGO action, this is for you!

You could win 1 of 5 LEGO Lord of the Rings Prize Packs including:



Shelob Attacks RRP $39.99

Gandalf Arrives RRP $22.99
 
 

 
To enter, all you have to do is tell me in 25 words or less if you were the Lord or Lady of something - what would it be? And why?

----------------------------
Open only to Australian residents.
Must be 25 words or less to be eligible to enter.
Please ensure you leave your email address.
Total prize pool is valued at $314.90. Each prize pack is valued at $63.98.
Competition runs from Tuesday 10th July 2012 - Monday 16th July 2012. Winners will be announced on PMM on Sunday  July, 2012 and notified by email.

I'd be the Lord of Good LEGO Prices in Australia. Good gawd, you're paying almost 2x what they go for in the US! That's just WRONG!

Catherine said...

"I’d be Lord of Lego Lord of the Rings! I’ll get Lego sets for free!! (I’m not Lord, so I’ll have to win this! Hint!)"
Thanks!

I love Lego! I love the sound it makes as it goes up the vacuum cleaner!!!

I'd be evil Lord If It's On The Floor It's Out The Door.

dan_azzo said...

I'd be the Lord of the Dance. Dropping sweet moves such as 'the LEGO man' are my forte.

Ellie said...

I am Lady of the Ring - the dirty bath ring, the ring of grime in the kids toilet and the shower too just for good measure.

Michelle said...

I'm Lady Picking up Lego Off The Floor
I'd cast a spell that says "No More!"

bec said...

Alison Frost said...

I am Lord of the Brick. If I can think it, I can make it, turning a pile of LEGO into awesomeness and back again. (Callum, aged nearly 8)

LionessLady said...

I would most definately be Lady of the Raised Voice! Since that is what I have been doing since the school holidays began!

Mumdeep said...

Today is my birthday so I am Lady Muck for the day, lying on the sofa watching bad movies wearing soft pants.

Jasmine said...

With a partner with insomnia and a toddler that doesn't nap or sleep through, I'd be the lord AND lady of sleep. SO tired!

Ele said...

Next week I'll be a Lady of Leisure! 'Leisure' understood to mean cooking, cleaning & sorting crap... oh and quality time with the kids, naturally!

Dianne said...

Can I do both boys' entries in one post???
The 8 year old said -
"Lord-of-Magic, I will make trillions of Pokemon cards and lego sets appear as well as make my annoying big brother disappear"

The 11 y/o said - "Lord of living lego - get Dad to build a bigger lego shelf, and get Mum to buy more lego for me"

(I knew I shouldn't have read this out to the boys last night - they were in bed, but kept talking about the competition & what they would me "Lord" of, for the next half hour or so, and who would get which set if they win!!)

E-von Lee-Arevalo said...

I would be the Lord of 'pick up your toys'. Love Lego but the aftermath is something I wish I could magically clean up!

Neets said...

Lady Losehershitalotthoucannotbeheard. Constantly losing my shit as no one will listen to a single thing I ask!

Sophie Feick said...

I would be Lady of the Lego Tower that no one can conquer and my children will inherit. And here is my Tower with my little ones.

Super Sarah said...

I am Lady of the throne room, otherwise known as the bathroom, the only place I can get any privacy round here!

CurlyPops said...

I would have to crown myself Lady Baconpalooza - Ruler of the Kingdom of CurlyPops, with my loyal subject Mr Limpy Houdini Dog!

Unknown said...

I'm Lady of the Super Hearing. Doesn't matter if you whisper your insult in your quietest voice, my darling children, I will hear you...

m.e (Cathie) said...

I would be called lady Bakealot just because it sounds so sweet and I would live in Bakealot castle with my shiny loyal subject KitchenAidalot ♥

opshopdiva said...

I had the boys do this last night as their bedtime activity. Here we go!

Joshua, bearing 8 space age years would be Lord SoccerGoalScorerStar, as he kicks with his power soccer boots, goal cladded soccer balls will dot our neighbourhood pavements, so the old Nanna neighbour will have some for herself.

Tristan, 6 years of Alien age, would be Lord Omnitrix. With robotic Omnitrix eyes, he would ward off bad Aliens that dare come to Lady's OpShopAddictMum kitchen and steal her pots of creamy butter chicken.

The end! xx

Naomi Ellis said...

Awesome giveaway. We sure love our lego in this house. If I had a choice I would be the Lady of the Rings because I am a huge jewellery collector and love my necklaces and rings :) N x

ginevra / occasional glimpses said...

I'll be Lady Yeow-who-has-left-their-LEGO-on-the-floor-again? ;)

T'lia said...

Lady of the mess (if you asked my husband!)!

talia.carbis @ gmail.com

Monique said...

Great giveaway. Almost every week I have a package arriving on my doorstep. I would be the lady-of-online-shopping.

samantha said...

Lady Lego as I am always the Lady putting it together and tyding it up one can never have enough Lego.

Cat said...

That sounds like a cool character out of the Faraway Tree Cathie. I'd totally want to visit your castle!

Cat said...

I would be " Lady of make the children sleep instantly". I would be very "kind" and share out these skills though. At least that's what skill I wish I had!

Little Paper Lane said...

I would be Lady of the foot stepith on Lego and swearalot!

Reannon Hope said...

I would be a " Lady of Leisure". Having these school holidays off work has shown me how much I could get done, how much more time I'd have for my boys, how much cleaner my house could be ( but probably wouldn't), how much more I could see my friends & how much more time I would have to do things I want to do. Such a drag that a full time job gets int eh way of me becoming a lady of leisure......

Sally Joy said...

I would be the Lady of Shalott like Anne of Green Gabels x even Lego loves some Tennyson.

Mike Littlely said...

That's pretty cool that they have Lord Of The Rings sets for Lego. I remember having a blast with Lego sets for space and Lego sets of mid evil times.
