LEGO Birds by Tom Poulsom
Nature lover and LEGO enthusiast Tom Poulsom has designed various species of birds using existing LEGO pieces. An arborist by trade, Poulsom has successfully built life-sized versions of a: robin, puffin, kingfisher, woodpecker, blue tit, goldfinch, blue jay and hummingbird. On the designs, Poulsom remarks:
“The birds are a big challenge to build, building something to look organic from Lego bricks is not easy, but it is a great challenge and one I enjoy very much. I like to think of Lego as the best puzzle in the world.”
After receiving over 10,000 votes from LEGO Ideas members, three of the designs were chosen by LEGO to be sold as an official 580-piece set which is now available.
