Catchem if You Can (A Lego City Story by Frankie aged 9)

This an original Lego City Story that invoves a bin, a spider and a fab police car chase!

It is amazing the hours of fun you can have with some Lego and a wonderful imagination. Take a look at this….

Catchem1, lego city story



The story and scenes were created by my son Frankie Hill (aged 9.)

With thanks to Carcraft who sent us the fab highspeed police chase set from Lego.
