Last week Boomerang in downtown Los Alamos received six tubs of LEGOs from a wonderful community member. Each tub contained many partially built LEGO sets ranging from Star Wars to Teen Aged Mutant Ninja Turtles, and everything in between.
Owner Anna Dillane was stumped as to how to know if the sets were complete or even what they were. Luckily, a customer had a solution. She suggested that her almost 12-year-old son Jack Ammerman might be interested in helping. He was thrilled to get paid to do something he loved and Dillane hired him on the spot!
Ammerman (and his mom) have worked three days putting together 22 LEGO sets so far. Ammerman fell in love with the Millennium Falcon and The Avengers Quinjet and worked in trade for those two sets.
Ammerman’s mom, Kristina, says this is a great opportunity for him to learn about working for a business and welcomes the chance to add to his home school experience this way.
Since Ammerman’s current plan is to become a designer for LEGO, this was a perfect job. Many of the LEGO sets are available to view and or purchase at Boomerang.
Boomerang is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday at 1247A Central Ave. Visit http://la-boomerang.com/.
