"There is a ship at the entrance of the maze and all that you see beside the maze is actually in the ship. The maze is actually much bigger than it is in the picture. The maze is easy to navigate from a bird's eye view but the people in the ship don't know which way to go and there are a lot of dead ends."

by Jack, age 6, Ewing, New Jersey, USA.

"The guy in front is videotaping the other guys racing through the maze. The first racer won, and he is holding his golden prize. The other guys got stuck."

“This is a labyrinth in space. You can’t see it by looking in the picture but the maze is under the second platform too, not only the first one. The little oval things scattered around are supposed to be moon rocks. They are actually rolled up lego treads. There’s a guy with a jetpack climbing upstairs. You’re not supposed to be able to see the stairs because he’s supposed to be jetpacking up to fix something. We put bricks under it to make it look like it’s floating but it didn’t really work. I got the idea from a computer game that I play, it’s Club Penguin. The main idea is that at first I was trying to copy the box world but then I just went to space.“

by Wes, age 6, Greenville South Carolina, USA.

"This maze is a puppy maze. Made of three puppy houses there are confusing pathways and a zip line all to help play tricks on the greedy poodle pup. All the clear yellow blocks are stink bombs."

One of the Hagrids is protecting the exit. The green Alien is protecting the entrance. The Rock Monster and other Hagrid are protecting the middle of the maze."

by Ben, age 6, Lexington, Virginia, USA.

by Isaac, age 12, Texas, USA.
