Fun keeps your spirits high and brings out your best self
Lightning round… Ready, set, go!
1. If the LEGO Group was an animal, what would it be and why?
Oh, definitely a polar bear. They’re fuzzy, nice and give a great feeling. I feel like that’s just the LEGO Group in a nutshell. Everybody loves it, well, at least I love it.
2. What Minifigure would you be?
Hands down I’m the tennis player Minifigure. I love to play tennis, but I’m not that great. So, in my LEGO universe, I’m a pro player who’s won four grand slams.
3. When was the last time you stepped on a LEGO brick?
This morning. It was on the floor, and I didn’t notice, it must have been my son who left it there because he’s obsessed with LEGO bricks. I felt something under my foot, and I just let out a long “ooouch” followed by my son’s name.
4. What’s your most recent build?
I last built the LEGO® Super Mario™ Adventures with Mario Starter Course. It’s super fun to play with, and my whole family gets involved. Little Mario has become a part of our family, he comes travelling with us, eats with us and even sleeps with us. It’s a great way to create challenges and encourage imagination and play with my children.
