This would work instead, or you could create your own design and post it.

It is easy to size for any one you want. The main picture is my 5yr old testing the fit.

Great for a kids room, bad thing is you might have to glue the legos together to prevent them coming off and becoming a choke hazard. Depending on the kids age of course
