Bird lover Thomas Poulsom painstakingly recreated several species of birds using LEGO a few years ago, and then popped it up on LEGO Ideas.
The concept was popular with voters – meaning that some of the creations have now been made into a delightful official LEGO set. The wildlife featured includes a hummingbird and flower, robin and blue jay.
The sets went on sale at the start of the year and have already sold out although you can still order one with a longer waiting time. Complete with cute species names in Latin to clip onto the bottom of the creations, these little sets are adorable and educational.
LEGO is a rite of passage, one of the building blocks of a quintessential childhood, and this new addition to the range is another brick in the wall for this design giant.
