Young Boy with Autism Makes Video Plea to Lego

legoBrynjar Karl – from Iceland is an 11 year old boy who has autism.

The Huffington Post reports that he has two dreams and they both involve Lego.

With the help of his mum, Brynjar he has used his creativity to make a plea via video to the people at Lego. He expresses his passion for the building bricks, and he asks for an invitation to Legoland in Denmark.

He is also polite in asking for enough Lego bricks to build his dream masterpiece which is the Titanic. Brynjar knows everything about how to recreate the ship.

He says in his video:

“It’s kind of tough being autistic … I’m learning every day to behave like other ‘normal’ kids. Whatever normal means,”

He then adds:

“Please be so kind to help me make this, my dream, come true.”

According to You Tube, Brynjar’s mothe, Bjarney Ludviksdottir, has sent LEGO a formal letter to encourage them to help Brynjar and received the following standard response:

“Thank you for drawing our attention to Brynjars video, we really enjoyed it and are happy knowing how much he appreciates playing with LEGO. LEGOLAND is part of the company Merlin Entertainments Group, and we have our own charitable trust, Merlins Magic Wand (www.MerlinsMagicWand.org), which is a worldwide charity for children, aiming to provide magical experiences for those who are seriously ill, disabled or disadvantaged. We are yet to hear from Brynjar and his family directly, but will of course be writing back to them when we do”

Earlier this week, they did send a letter directly to MerlinsMagicWand and are awaiting a response.
