Photos: 10 readers share their Lego creations

"It keeps me happy and balanced throughout the workday."

"My kids are big fans of the band Ghost."

After The Lego Group announced their plans to move their North American headquarters from Connecticut to Boston, we asked readers to show off their creative abilities.

One of the reasons Lego president Skip Kodak gave for the decision was wanting to be closer to where the “talent is living,” according to The Boston Globe. Now, don’t make us blush, but we will happily share our talented Bostonian Lego builders. That is why we asked readers to send photos to demonstrate their Lego love.

Ahead, we share a roundup of reader-submitted photos including sets their kids built, masterpieces that came together during COVID, and recent creations.

“My kids are big fans of the band Ghost and my middle one has been trying to recreate their stage in everything from foam to cardboard. For Christmas I collected a bunch of random LEGOs online and at the Natick Mall store with no clear idea in mind what the final project might look like other than the costumes band members. Here’s what we ended up with.”
