The grade six, Eastleigh Primary pupil in Edenvale, Johannesburg, entered the competition at the Toys R Us store at East Rand and plans to share his prizes with his brothers, Katleho, 14, Kamogelo, 13 and Unakho, 11.
“I am sooooooo excited. I have wished for these toys for a long time and finally my dream has come true,” said 12-year-old Mokhotla.
His mother, Lydia, an electrician, said it was the first time that one of her children won a competition which brought great joy to their home.
“They are huge fans of Toys R Us and he was over joyed to learn that he won all these wonderful toys. He will be very entertained this holiday and I will definitely have a home of very happy boys,” she said.
