The LEGO parrot that eats and poops

by admin on December 19, 2014

in Other LEGO Themes

We normally don’t talk about the basic LEGO Creator sets in detail, well, because they are basic. Make no mistake; LEGO Creator is a wonderful theme, and it is the closest to LEGO sets of the past, with mostly standard elements and instructions for multiple models. So yes, they are great, and I highly recommend them. It is just that LEGO Creator is not as flashy as other LEGO themes, so they are usually not such big conversation pieces.

Today however I will have to talk about a newly released LEGO Creator set, because it actually comes with a feature that is just too much fun not to mention. The set is the #31031 LEGO Rainforest Animals, with the main model being a parrot that can eat and poop! Yep, you heard that right! I know, I know, proper adults will roll their eyes, but if you have or ever worked with kids you know that they all go through a stage when they are fascinated with the topic; they find it funny, intriguing, and can’t stop talking and asking about the subject. In fact the book Everyone Poops by Japanese author Taro Gomi is a childhood favorite all over the world. So I’m pretty sure that a LEGO set with this function is going to be a winner with kids. 😀

Going back to the #31031 LEGO Creator Rainforest Animals, here is the official description: Have fun with the colorful 3-in-1 Rainforest Animals! This delightful set features a brightly colored parrot with movable wings, feet and eyes, a handsome frog and a cute fly. Have fun feeding the hungry parrot, hop with the handsome frog and buzz around with the fly! But keep an eye on the frog, he’s very fond of flies! Rebuilds into a pop-eyed chameleon or a tropical fish. 215 pieces. Price: $14.99 – BUY HERE

#31031 LEGO Creator Parrot 2

First of all, the parrot is just a beautiful LEGO-built bird with adjustable wings, and feet that allows the bird to perch. And although the description does mention that you can feed the parrot, it doesn’t talk about the parrot being able to poop too! However when you look at the building-instructions you can see both features in action. I actually discovered this function by watching a video by one of my favorite LEGO reviewers, JANGBRiCKS. He talks about this set in detail, and shows you both the main model as well as the alternate builds (which are also very cute). You can watch the video-review below with all the details.

It is interesting to note that LEGO recently introduced quite a few sets with toilets. There is the #70811 The LEGO Movie Flying Flusher, the #10218 LEGO Creator Pet Shop, #10246 LEGO Creator Detective’s Office, and also several of the LEGO Friends sets have bathrooms. I’m not sure if LEGO hired a bunch of 3-year-olds as designers, or adult designers just decided to have some fun, but based on feedback I have read so far, LEGO sets with bathrooms are very popular. And even though #31031 LEGO Rainforest Animals is actually a 2015 set that was just released a bit early, it is already talked about at online social forums as the best set of the year with the best play-feature. 🙄

If you would like to get the #31031 LEGO Rainforest Animals, you may find it at local LEGO retailers, although availability may be sketchy as it is a January 2015 set. If you don’t find it locally, but would like to get it before Christmas, it is available at the Online LEGO Shop.

He-he… the set is immensely popular on social networks because of this feature – both with kids and adults. 😉

I can testify that this set is immensely popular with 5-year-olds. 😀 And adults love it too. I guess some of us never grow out of that stage. Best play feature ever! 😀

Have you considered posting Ninjago episodes again?

If they are available, sure I will post them. LEGO’s legal department however has been taking them down really fast. There is nothign I can do about that.

Thanks, this was me and my sisters main reason for coming to this site.

On a related note, there’s also a 2015 construction set with a port-a-potty.

Yup! That’s the whole reason I’m getting that set. The Lego Movie Flying Flusher had a port a potty if you decided to build the plumbing truck instead of the flying vehicle. I got that too =D

Funnily enough, just about all of the 2015 Demolition City sets come with a bathroom or part of one. The starter set features a exploding toilet (or something like that), the Service truck you mentioned comes with a full port-a-potty, and the Demolition site comes with another toilet. Weird. 😀

LOL! LEGO definitely most have hired a gang of three-year-olds! 😈

It seems the plumbing has broken down. Possibly the water wasn’t shut off before starting the demolition. (Classic rookie mistake.)

Oh, dear, I guess plumbing horror stories are in the stars right now! We been having plumbing problems for weeks now! Had a leaking faucet fixed – or we thought it was going to be fixed – which opened up a can of worms. Our house is quite old, with the old style metal piping, and since the supposed fix now everything is leaking or not working at all. I have been taking showers in dripping water. Plumber is talking about replacing the entire piping system, and because ours is built into the foundation, we have to run it through the attic. What a mess! 🙁

Must be tasty 😀

Ha! I never knew that it had that function! For some reason, I found the colors of the set nice, but I wasn’t too interested in it. Red Creatures is my 2015 Creator set to get! But still, that function is a great attraction for the set. I wouldn’t be surprised if it sold out early…. 😉
And so that little black thing is a fly? I note the poor resemblance. But I suppose it looks cuter than real flies do, with their red eyes and all. 😀
Also, a number of January releases have appeared on Lego Shop US, including the other three Creator, most of the SW and Classic sets, some more Disney Princess, and the Friends. You can view them from here: Online LEGO Shop

Well, if you were able to dump “food” down his mouth but they had nowhere else to go, we’d be saying the parrot “eats and vomits”.

It looks super odd though, I mean I’m entirely reminded of the old “flip top head” commercial for Reach toothbushes. (Youtube has it.)

LOL! Yeah, that’s a good point. I don’t know which is better… or worse… 😈
