Lego was the centre of attention in Kaikoura during the last week of the school holidays.

Toni Batey, a mum of two teens, set up an “Inspiration Corner” with the help of the Creative Communities Trust and the Kaikoura District Council.

She says there is no use having toys in boxes, and set the corner where all ages could go and hang out with their lego and show it off.

This also gave her a chance to get out collection of 60 sets.
