A ten-year-old who lost his beloved ‘Lego man’ has been reunited with the figure, after creating a ‘missing person’ poster for it.
Jack Steel was left devastated after he lost the figurine, especially because it actually represents himself and is named Jack throughout all his Lego adventures.
To help find the missing piece, the British schoolboy created a ‘LOST’ poster—and even offered a reward of £2 for whoever found it.
The poster begins: “Has anyone seen this Lego man?”
“He is very special to me,” Jack added.
Alongside a drawing of the figure, Jack pointed out the visual features: “Light brown quiff (which is a hair style in the parlance of the region) with matching eyebrows.
“Hawaiian Shirt (blue with palm trees and an orange stripe on the bottom. Dark green pants.”
Luckily, Jack’s Lego man was found in the park where he plays in Ulverston, Cumbria, by a local schoolgirl.
The girl’s mom then contacted Jack’s mom, Lorna Walker, after seeing his missing poster on Facebook.
Lorna said her son was quite distraught when he realized he had lost it.
“He came to me very upset that he had lost it and thought it must have fallen out of his bag.
“After school we retraced our steps home, (but) with no luck.
That’s when he came up with the poster and Lorna shared it on Facebook, explaining to all that he had designed the figurine himself during an interactive exhibit at the Lego Discovery Centre in Manchester on a recent family trip.
“He took great care in picking the perfect parts.”
The boy had placed the little guy in the front pocket of his bag to take it to his grandma’s after school to show her, but forgot to zip it and it had fallen out.
The family was so relieved it all worked out brilliantly, and Lorna gifted the girl an extra box of chocolates for finding the missing piece.
