Tweet! Tweet! It’s a Lego bird

It wasn’t until I spotted these amazing birds did it occur to me that Lego is most often used to create vehicles, buildings and things of a mechanical ilk.

Thomas Poulsom has created a series of Lego birds as part of the Cuusoo project. We introduced you to Cuusoo eariler this year – it’s basically an initiative by Lego that allows brick fanatics everywhere to develop a project and see it transformed into a Lego kit for the masses.

Poulsom’s proposed bird Lego kits are extraordinary, if only for the fact that they use Lego to create living things. Poulsom plans to build a series of birds for each continent of the world but so far has created some popular British birds and tropical birds. The birds are stunning – a delicate hummingbird, a statuesque owl, colourful parrots and my favourite, a sweet robin.

Poulsom hopes to include a perch or scene with each bird as well as a soundbrick with the bird’s song or call – isn’t that lovely?!

When you visit Cuusoo, make sure you show your support for Poulsom’s birds, in order for the kits to one day be available to buy.
