Highland Show recreated with Lego
A family have recreated the Royal Highland Show out of Lego and Playmobil, after realising they would not be able to go this year.
The Highland Show was cancelled in March due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Lorna Muirhead and her two children, Ailie, 12, and Hamish, eight, were upset when they realised they would not be able to make their annual trip to the Edinburgh show, which is a “firm family favourite”.
Instead they decided they would make their own in their garden on a farm in the south of Scotland.
Mrs Muirhead said: “It really just started when the children were playing with their toys, and it started with the ponies in the stables, then we were using their dad’s old farm toys. Then we thought, ‘Oh, why don’t we create the whole Highland Show? Since it’s not running this year, why don’t we have it in our back garden?’”
The family spent about six hours building the show, using a mix of mostly Lego, but also Playmobil as well as toilet roll holders, cereal boxes and any other bits and pieces that would fit.
