Bird Enthusiast Creates LEGO Birds And 10,000 Supporters Get LEGO To Mass-Produce Them
Tom Poulsom, a gardener and tree surgeon from Bristol, turned his passion for birding into these amazing LEGO brick bird replicas.
Poulsom’s designs didn’t go unappreciated – 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas voted to start mass-producing 3 of his birds, and the first kit hits stores in January.
“I have always been a fan of LEGO, and a big admirer of the natural world, rekindling my love for LEGO two years ago and building what most boys would build, cars, trucks and spaceships, etc. However, being a gardener and a lover of nature I wanted to build something related to my job. One day during a break from digging in a customers garden a Robin Red Breast landed on my fork handle. This was the eureka moment behind what is now the LEGO Bird Project,” Poulsom told twobirdersandbinoculars.
