Davo is hardworking, intelligent, strong, trustworthy and has
impressive attention to detail
Hobbies: Solving problems, building with Lego, computers
Davo is the youngest of 5 brothers. His house is a
bit crazy sometimes. Because he is the youngest, Davo can
sneak off and play with for hours without anyone noticing he
is not around.
Davo loves building with Lego. He doesn't just build little
things though, Davo likes to build big Lego projects. So far,
he has built a pirate ship, an Egyptian pyramid and a whole
city. For Davo, the worst thing about building big Lego projects is
that he has to stop and sleep sometimes!
Davo's brother is great at telling stories. When Davo has been
building with Lego, his brother tells him stories to match
Davo's latest Lego project so that when it's time for sleep he
lies in his bed imagining himself inside the Lego-world, as a
pirate, as an Egyptian king or as a mayor of the town.
Another thing Davo loves to do is play on the computer. At
Davo's school they have computer class where Davo learns a lot
of computer tricks. Davo often has to help when his dad has
computer problems. A lot of his friends like computer games, but
Davo prefers reading about interesting things like history and
aeroplanes. Recently Davo saw a picture of the biggest
plane in the world. He is now trying to build a model of it
with Lego. It's going to take ages!
