The brothers competed with their Dad, David Lydon, when they came to visit the Discovery Center on July 15. Their builds were chosen and competed against other kids and grown-ups that won challenges on the other build dates.
The Lydon brothers intended to only visit LEGOLAND for the day. “We traveled to Boston to go to LEGOLAND, thinking our sons who both love building Legos, were going to take a class,” explained Katherine Lydon. “We didn’t realize that we had entered a competition instead.”

After competing on both weekends and making it to the final rounds, the brothers discovered they were winners through an email their Dad received on July 28.
“When they discovered they were the winners,” Lydon continued, “Nathan, who is obsessed with Lego building, was so excited he had a difficult time going to sleep that evening.”
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston, Master Model Builder Megan Amaral was the judge and said, "I loved the explanations behind why Nathan and Benjamin created what they did. It’s the stories the two created to get the build just right, every piece played a role. This challenge really brought out their creativity and fun."
“LEGOLAND Discovery Centers are designed to provide LEGO play experiences that power creativity and learning through shared LEGO fun for adults and children,” said Amaral. “We are thrilled to see the energy and imagination that went into the challenge from both kids and adults and look forward to welcoming families to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston to have a go.”
The brothers, who are both students at Windham Primary School, will win tickets to the attraction and a private build session with Amaral.
