We’ve been asked by LEGO® to find 30 UK Mumsnetters to give LEGO® as a reward to their DCs over a 2 week period.

We’re looking for Mumsnetters who have at least one child aged 5 or over.

Here’s what they have to say: “Here at LEGO®, we’re interested to see what occasions you would consider rewarding or treating your kids with LEGO®? A great school report. Holiday treats. Good behaviour on a trip to the dentist. Helping in the garden. Tidying their room. Mum's little star. There is a great LEGO® gift idea starting from £2.49 that is fun, creative and made for every occasion. With so many sets to choose from, we think LEGO® is a fantastic gift for every occasion and we’d like you to tell us about it!”

If you are selected to take part you will be sent one of the following:
- Two LEGO® City Sets (Demolition Starter set and Swamp Police Starter set - RRP £8.99)
- Two LEGO® Friends Sets (Garden Pool and Vet Ambulance - RRP £9.99)
- One LEGO® City Set and One LEGOFriends Set (either Demolition Starter set OR Swamp Police Starter set, and Garden Pool OR Vet Ambulance)

Over a two week period we’d like you to give the LEGO® products to your child as a reward – should the situation arise where a reward or treat is warranted, of course wink, in place of other rewards. During the testing period, you would need to give feedback on a thread on Mumsnet about the occasions where you have given the LEGO® sets as a reward. It's very important you share your feedback with Mumsnet and LEGO® on the thread. If there were no occasions to reward your child with LEGO®, you can use the LEGO® as a reward at a later date and still participate in the thread

Testers need to be available to participate in the test from 18-31 May. Please only apply if you’re available at this time.

Every tester who posts their feedback will be entered into a prize draw, where one winner will receive a £300 Love2Shop voucher.

If you’d like to take part please add your details here.

Thanks and good luck!

Wow - my older two boys would love this!

chickensandbees Thu 30-Apr-15 12:16:30

Entered. would love to get this. DDs are just showing an interest in lego and would like them to try it.

Also usually reward with magazines which are a bit of a waste of money and expensive for what they are.

PandasRock Thu 30-Apr-15 12:24:06

I filled in the survey, but I think I forgot to tick which choice of lego rewards. Could you amend for me, please? Preference would be for Friends lego please.

AngelieMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 30-Apr-15 12:26:14

Hi PandasRock - I've just checked and you did select your preference smile

AliceDoesntLiveHereAnymore Thu 30-Apr-15 12:39:12

Entered. This would be brilliant!!

newlark Thu 30-Apr-15 12:48:06

I've put my name down! Good idea for a longer lasting alternative to food/screen time treats especially in the holidays smile

Entered. Would love to try Lego for rewards!

IKnowRight Thu 30-Apr-15 12:52:00

Struggling to think of a situation in which I would reward my dc with lego tbh confused

Free lego sounds great though

lazyleo Thu 30-Apr-15 12:52:56

Entered. Funny enough my daugter is on a promise of more lego if she finishes her block of swimming lessons which she absolutely hates!!

AGrinWithoutACat Thu 30-Apr-15 12:53:43

Entered grin this would be a great one to take part in - everyone loves lego in our house!

PandasRock Thu 30-Apr-15 13:02:40

Thank you Angelie smile

Bobkitten Thu 30-Apr-15 13:03:53

I'd love to take part in this. DS has a Lego 'wanted' list as long as his arm. In fact, so does his father.

I got the Lego Elves ship for myself

May09Bump Thu 30-Apr-15 13:12:05

We use Lego Mixels to reward currently and take larger sets on Holiday in case of bad weather or just some quiet downtime. My son would love to try these!

01818118181 Thu 30-Apr-15 13:15:36

Fed up of using sweets and screen time as a treat - this could break some bad parenting habits for me! Entered with fingers crossed!

momscribe Thu 30-Apr-15 13:43:46

Interested and available at the request time. Done!

Whichoneisit Thu 30-Apr-15 13:43:57

I have entered too. We use lego as rewards but it's difficult to find pocket money products other than mixels.

(Also now have the 0181811.. jingle stuck in my head after the poster above grin)

BathshebaDarkstone Thu 30-Apr-15 13:51:14

Done. DD loves Lego Friends, and, God knows, her behaviour needs changing.

incogKNEEto Thu 30-Apr-15 13:58:39

Done smile About to restart using 1-2-3 Magic with the two youngest dc, and think it would be an ideal time to try this as both love Lego, and I'd never thought if using it as a reward before!

FoxyJane Thu 30-Apr-15 14:25:24

Yes I've entered we already use Lego as a reward usually the games or TV programmes. For exceptional behaviour they get a figure or a mixel. I find it hard to get rewards to work though, most have to be immediate. The golden time chart and a goal a week work well. its hard having to children with asd as sometimes I really don't think they understand the time frame and the concept of rewards but at the moment I thing it works kind of okay.

glenthebattleostrich Thu 30-Apr-15 14:30:19

We use lego magazines as bribery / rewards and DD loves them. The next step up (for badges at swimming or gym) is a visit to play at the lego store and a mini figure. This would be amazing!

elfycat Thu 30-Apr-15 14:53:07

I use an ice-cream on a friday as a reward for good school-run behaviour, but would rather not have food-as-reward. We use lego as a time filler on days out (those 3-in-1 creator kits are fabulous) but I hadn't thought of lego-as-reward even though we love lego.

Cabawill Thu 30-Apr-15 15:20:52

I have entered. I never realised Lego had such great value sets available. We try to reward little and often so to give them something they love so much but is affordable would be great

lunar1 Thu 30-Apr-15 15:44:31

We use the mixel sets and keyrings for rewards. Occasionally they get a bigger set if it's a real achievement, a mile at swimming for my six year old got a bigger set.
