Igor Sidorov announced on social media this week that his talented son lost all his Lego when the family left the Ukraine when the conflict started.
Prior to the outbreak, Andrey had a huge following on social media for making incredible Lego models without instructions. All that has come to a stop however, as the child has no Lego to play with.
The family are staying in The Galmont Hotel in Galway. The Liberal contacted the hotel who told us that the boy has only received a few parcels but not too many at all, they said.
Mr Sidorov asked for Lego donations, declaring:
“A family from Ukraine needs help. My eldest son is engaged in the creation and construction of various Lego toys on a semi-professional level without instruction,” his post read.
“He is a very clever boy. War changed all. We left all our Lego in Ukraine. We need any Lego, any size and colour, in any quantity. Everything is just for the development of the child.”
11-yr-old Andrey has more than 5,700 followers on Instagram under his ‘Lego_Boy_Star‘ username and a large number of subscribers to his YouTube channel.
If you’d like to send Andrey some Lego, preferably new, you can do so by sending to:
