LEGO CUUSOO project: LEGO birds

Love LEGO? Love birds? You will love LEGO Birds! Here is another LEGO CUUSOO project you might like to check out and support (remember; a LEGO project needs 10,000 votes for LEGO to consider production).

DeTomaso (Thomas Poulsom) is the creator of the LEGO Birds series shares the following about his inspirational LEGO CUUSOO project:

I find birds a great subject to build with LEGO. Being a gardener and bird-lover, I can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner. I also think that if these birds were turned into official LEGO sets they would be inspirational to both children and adults.

I really enjoy matching the different colors and different features of our beautiful feathered friends and I hope that one day anybody else can have the chance to build their own birds from LEGO.

The plan is to build a series of LEGO birds for every continent around the world, that way everybody can have the chance to own their favorite native bird in LEGO form. I plan to make 7 birds for each series which I think is a good number for a set. This may change if there are more birds I’d like to build – which is most likely.

So far I have created a series of popular British Birds which I have tried to make as close to life-size as possible. This is the first in the series of LEGO birds. The more support I receive the more birds I will build and post on my CUUSOO LEGO project page.

In an ideal world, if this CUUSOO project reaches 10,000 supporters and passes the review, I would like each LEGO bird to be sold seperately with a little scene/perch and a little plaque with information about the specific bird. I think it would be a bonus to have a LEGO sound-brick somewhere in the build with the particular birds-song or call. 🙂

I have contacted the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) which is a great British bird charity. I hope to get them on board this LEGO project to help the LEGO birds take off. My idea is for some of the proceeds of this product to go to their great cause. I have also started on a new secret colorful series of LEGO birds due to a request from a newspaper that my LEGO birds will be featuring soon. 😉

To see the LEGO birds I’ve built so far in more detail you can visit my Flickr Gallery, but please don’t forget to support the project before you go elsewhere. It only takes a minute to register at CUUSOO and support this project. Please take the time to help make people aware how important these beautiful feathered creatures are (you can Tweet, Like and share below).

I really hope you enjoy these LEGO birds and support me to help them take off. I am also open to suggestions of future birds to build. Please comment and let me know which bird you would like to see and it could become reality.

How about you? What do you think of the LEGO birds series? I love birds myself and I’m an avid bird-watcher, so I really like this LEGO project. What are your thoughts? Share them in the comments below! 😉

If the project gets to 10,000 votes, I would definitely buy some of these LEGO birds. I think it is a great idea!

P.S. I wonder how New Zealand’s native Kiwi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiwi) would look in LEGO!

Oh, would love to see a LEGO Kiwi! They are awesome! 😀

Personally, I think a Kiwi is a great idea. Some of the birds, while not bad, are very regional, and unless they are somewhat famous around the world, I don’t really see too many people outside of the region desiring them. Penguins, Puffins, Kiwi, Cardinal, Blue Jay, and a Bald Eagle sound like the best for new ones. Of the ones above, the ones that I think are a Kingfisher and a Barn Owl are my favorite, just because they are fairly well known.

Hey, don’t you worry there are many more recognisable birds to come. The British/European birds are just the start. I have just completed a Tropical series which I’m sure you will have no problems recognising. Thank you very much for blogging my Birds, it’s much appreciated!

Hey! Do you have a parts list available for the Kingfisher? I think it’s an amazing creation and would love to build it and deliver as a gift for a family member. Thanks!

Any chance you have a list of the pieces available that are needed to build some of these? Specifically, the one with the blue feathers and brown underbelly.. I don’t know what it’s called. It would be an awesome gift and I wish it was available for sale!

Matt, the bird is called a Kingfisher, and you can certainly contact Thomas and ask him if he could share instructions or even sell you one. You can contact him through his flickr gallery or CUUSOO page – both are in the post above. 😉
