Australia’s next master builder could be in Caroline Springs.

Six-year-old Drayden was selected as one of six winners of the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre’s Junior Model Builders final.

Just 18 children aged between five and 10 were selected to participate in the final from hundreds of applicants.

The finalists competed in a number of fun challenges run by LEGOLAND Discovery Centre’s master model builder, Kieran Jiwa, to test their creativity, enthusiasm and LEGO skills.

Drayden was announced as one of six winners.

Drayden said he was pretty excited and happy to be named one of the winners.

He said he found LEGO fun as you can “twist, bend, break and make it into cool stuff“.

His favourite sets are the Harry Potter sets, while his love of LGO started when he discovered he could make cars out of the blocks.

Robots, Minecraft, houses and buildings are among the other things he likes to build.

His mum Rowena said he started playing with Duplo LEGI when he was around two years old, before starting to play with proper LEGO just before he turned four.

The six winners will get exclusive one-on-one workshops with Jiwa throughout 202,1 along with heaps of LEGO goodies.
