Legoland was flooded with applications for their model maker job vacancy earlier this year, but there was one unique application that caught their eye and stood out from the rest.


Stanley Bolland wrote a handwritten letter to Lego when he heard that they were planning on hiring model builders at Legoland in Windsor.


The six-year-old boy from Waterlooville, England was offered a one-off experience by Lego, after he impressed them with his job application.


In his letter, he wrote about how he believed that he was the ideal candidate for the job, “I am the man for the job. I have lots of experience.”

The full letter read:

Dear Sir/Madam

I am 6 years old and I love Lego. I have a box of it I hide my Lego so my brother can’t get it. I am the man for the job because I have lots of experience.

Love Stanley

(ref... model builders job)

He wrote about his love for Lego and how he hides his beloved collection of Lego from his brother.


Stanley’s application impressed the company so much that they asked him to visit the theme park. He spent the day shadowing staff member, Paula Laughton, who gave him a tour around the park.


The company responded to his hand-written letter by saying, "Loving Lego is the first step to being a model maker, so it certainly sounds like you'll be perfect for the job.”


Stanley also got the chance to see behind the scenes at Legoland. He got to see how the workers mend the models in Legoland.

The job was advertised by Merlin Entertainment Groups. The company was looking for a candidate who had experience in product design and IT, with an interest and knowledge of Lego and the Lego models.


The chosen candidate would be offered a competitive salary, 20 days holidays, and a 40 percent discount on Lego products.


The staff at Legoland, Windsor believed that Stanley would be a brilliant addition to their team, but he would have to wait until he finished school. Ms. Laughton hopes his trip to Legoland will have a positive influence on the six-year-old, “Stanley showed great promise, so we hope this will inspire him."


Stanley had a blast during his special day at Legoland and is eager to tell his classmates all about his adventure.


"It was awesome to spend the whole day at Legoland meeting the model makers and learning all about what they do every day. I loved it and I can't wait to tell all my friends about it at school."


Lego didn’t offer Stanley the job, but Laughton said that the park will keep an eye out for his job application in the future.
