Stig on the Blog


Stig has taken over in the name of this weeks #WASO theme “the work of your child”.

I like Lego because it’s so simple to use, you clip it and you have built a shape, which can put on another brick and you can build what’s in your imagination .Lego in my opinion is the best  to use and  to play with. The people are fun as you can make your own when you are board of the last one.

Lego helps me when I’m angry, sad, and giddy and have attitude, it helps me calm down. the games I play are war games, race games and labyrinth games.


The Battle


There is a raging battle going on in our household, one that is causing great concern for the impending doom of a nation. Stig informs me that the Halo characters are very angry because they think that the Lego characters blew up their planet. Anyway they’ve all gathered at the old mineshaft to have it out. Expect missing arms, legs and heads, weapon strewn and buildings collapsed. The terrifying noise of grenades being launched, machine guns rattling and plenty of “POWS” and “ARGHHHS” before an outcome can be announced. I’ll keep you informed on any breaking news…..

Snap Happy Brit Mums – Childhood Dreams

When my boys first came to live with us it was explained, by social services, that due to their neglectful background, that they would lack imagination in play. Starved by stimulation they were unable to dream up their own characters and stories during playtime. In those early days Mr H and I sat on the floor moving the figures and cars around suggesting dialogue, names and a plot to the game.

Early on Stig showed an interest in building things especially with Lego. He has gradually built up quite a collection of Lego from different kits he’s had. On receiving a box of his delight he firstly follows the instructions to build the item as it’s shown in the pictures. Then the item will be deconstructed and placed in a big container of other deconstructed items. From this box he then begins to build items which he designs in his head, dreams up  by himself.

Today Stig’s imagination runs on over load thinking up all the vehicles, ships and guns he can create with his Lego. He will often choose to go and play with his Lego instead of watching the television. Up in his room his games are full of different characters, vehicles and battling sounds of explosions, gunfire and shouted commands, all crafted from the inside of his mind . He can remain captivated by his own imagination for hours. Lego has helped Stig to develop his imagination enabled him to create and build his childhood dreams.
