How It Works

Win £400 worth of LEGO® Technic goodies

Toy-making legend LEGO ® is running a very cool competition this summer. The great prizes on offer include £400 worth of LEGO® Technic products (for entrants aged 5-9), a ride to school in a supercar (for 10-16s) and a high-octane track day for two (for those over 17).

The challenge is simple. Have fun building weird and wonderful constructions out of LEGO® – everyone’s favourite toy – then send a picture of your creation to the LEGO® Technic Extreme Machine Challenge website.

Alternatively, throughout August you can get involved by heading to one of the events taking place at participating Smyths toy stores around the UK where you can have fun building your Extreme Machine together with other competitors.

This exciting competition gives budding engineers of all ages and abilities the chance to take home some brilliant prizes. So why not check out last year’s website – – for inspiration. There you’ll find more information on how the challenge works, plus a gallery of last year’s entries. The website for this year’s competition goes live on 18 July so keep your eyes peeled for updates.

How It Works will keep you posted with any developments and we may also be on the judging panel to help decide the winners so be nice to us!

You can enter the competition between 23 July and 11 September so get those thinking caps on, dig out your finest LEGO ® bricks, and get constructional! We can’t wait to see what amazing creations you come up with. We love LEGO ® !
