If there’s one thing a 7-year-old little boy is good at, it’s losing toys. Especially if its a tiny toy like a LEGO minifig! But– if there’s one thing that’s hard for a little boy– it’s admitting when he’s made a mistake. Luka, the boy in this story, was told by his Dad to leave his LEGOs at home while the two went on a run to the grocery store. Luka didn’t listen, and he ended up losing his precious Jay ZX figurine.
However, Luka was able to put his pride aside and admit that he disobeyed, explaining what happened in an email to LEGO Consumer Services. This is what he said:
Hello. My name is Luka and I am seven years old. With all my money I got for Christmas I bought the Ninjago kit of the Ultrasonic Raider. The number is 9449. It is really good. My Daddy just took me to Sainsburys and told me to leave the people at home but I took them and I lost Jay ZX at the shop as it fell out of my coat. I am really upset I have lost him. Daddy said to send you an email to see if you will send me another one. I promise I won’t take him to the shop again if you can. Thank you.
As if that wasn’t adorable enough, a man named Richard from LEGO Consumer Services sent him back this epic response:
Thanks for sending us an email!
We are very sorry to hear about you losing your Jay minifigure but it sounds like your dad might have been right about leaving it at home. It sounds like you are very sad about it too.
Normally we would ask that you pay for a new one if you lose one of your minifigures and need to have it replaced. My bosses told me I could not send you one out for free because you lost it but, I decided that I would put a call into Sensei Wu to see if he could help me.
Luka, I told Sensei Wu that losing your Jay minifigure was purely an accident and that you would never ever ever let it happen again. He told me to tell you, “Luka, your father seems like a wise man. You must always protect your Ninjago minifigure like the dragons protect the Weapons of Spinjitzu!” Sensei Wu also told me it was okay if I send you a new Jay and told me it would be okay if I included something extra for you because anyone that saves their Christmas money to buy the Ultrasonic Raider must be a really big Ninjago fan.
So, I hope you enjoy your Jay minifigure with all his weapons. You will actually have the only Jay minifigure that combines 3 different Jays into one! I am also going to send you a bad guy for him to fight!
Just remember, what Sensei Wu said: Keep your minifigures protected like the Weapons of Spinjitzu! And of course, always listen to your dad.
You will see an envelope from LEGO within the next two weeks with your new minifigures. Please take good care of them, Luka. Remember that you promised to always leave them at home.
Way to go,LEGO customer service! You definitely made this boy’s day while teaching an important lesson.
