A NORTH Somerset youngster saw his imagination brought to life in Weston this week.

Since the opening of the Sand Sculpture Festival back in June, children have been submitting entries for its Design a Toy of the Future competition.

Charlie Grzonka, aged six, saw off competition from more than 300 other entries to win.

The youngster from Failand came up with an idea for a game that involves playing catch with sharks.

World champion sand sculptor and CBBC’s Deadly Art presenter Nicola Wood carved his design out of 30 tons of sand.

The sculpture will stand among the rest of the exhibition, carved by 18 international artists.

The festival is open until September 9.
