So you’re in a jam on what present to buy somebody, whether it’s a small or big kid,  Nitro Neo has you covered with Lego motocross toys, oh yes, two of the coolest things in the world!  Some imagination is required from what I saw him playing with earlier, but as you can see from the photos he has his Lego sets dialled in!

Some Lego was clearly motocross themed but Neo also took standard pieces to do a top job running his own Monster Energy Supercross race.  He has everything to play as the rider who heads out for fun at the weekend, through to a full factory pro-rider set up….



….Mixing your imagination and LEGO sets like the dirt bike transporter, City camper van, monster trucks and big boy sets such as Speed Champions; with random pieces to make flags and a podium with trophies and prize money is what makes it all happen.  Motorhome to pro-factory rigs, spectators, racers with body armour and helmets and goggles, marshals with flags, mechanics with tools and spares  You get the drift, basically he’s slowly bought the lot with his race winnings!

So, if you’re stuck for ideas on what to get the motocross lover in your life for their birthday, Christmas, or whatever the occassion, here you go, some Lego will surely be their favourite toy of the day.  Plus, you can add to it each time you buy them a gift or they can use their pocket money to build it up (or wages, we know big kids will love these too).  I hope you like our inspiration, and good luck tapping in to Nitro Neo’s imagination. There was some pretty big jumps and whips being pulled at the Nitro Neo Motocross World Championships!

On 23rd December 2013 children in Derbyshire Children’s Hospital went NITRO for his toy donation.  Neo arrived with 250 toys and donated them so the children in hospital, or attending appointments would be happier having such nice toys to play with.

It’s the first time the hospital have had such a donation – Nitro Neo really is one of a kind. We don’t know any six year old anywhere else that is so generous and uses their own time to make other people happyIMG_0022

Nitro Neo paid the hospital a visit with his motocross bike, some signed goodies and handed over bags and bags full of toys. After letting some of the children visiting outpatients have a sit on his bike, he chatted to them about the sport and wished them well.  Nitro Neo also visited the Sunflower Ward to play with some of the children who weren’t well enough to venture outside to have their photo taken on his bike to show family and friends.


Nitro Neo told us: “I’m a lucky boy, and I love my family very much so when my parents told me that som children might not have Christmas at home it made me sad. I wanted to know why, and I wanted to make sure they could be happy at Christmas time.



I have a lot of toys, and so does my sister, so I wanted to give a lot of them to someone else to make them happy and feel better.

I loved going to meet the children who have to stay in hospital, it was nice to spend some time with them and tell them I had brought along new toys for them to play with. I think I made them happy!”


Fran Watson, Senior Hospital Play Specialist from Royal Derby Hospital said: “We received a message on twitter from @Nitro_Neo asking if he could make a donation, which of course, we were more than happy to help with.

It’s always nice to know people wish to make donations, but for such a young boy to want to help of his own accord is quite unique. It certainly cheered up our patients knowing they have new toys to play with and they loved talking to Neo about his racing.

On behalf of the staff and children in the children’s hospital, thank you Neo”.

Merry Christmas everyone, love from the Babe Behind the Blog and the rest of Team Nitro! xxx

With special thanks to everyone who helped Nitro Neo spread smiles at the Children’s Hospital this year 🙂
