For this book, my team took their inspiration from the ‘LEGO Classic’ series of sets. Each of these sets provides exactly what those visitors I meet at public events ask about. A big box of LEGO bricks! Of course, not every brick is a standard 2x4 brick – or 2x2 plate – or 1x3 slope - but everyone should recognise the collection of LEGO pieces. So, if a part is available in one of the ‘LEGO Classic’ sets – then we have decided that it’s allowed!
Colour is important for some of these animals, although the coloured bricks available in the CLASSIC boxes would not often be the right ones - that's when having multiple CLASSIC boxes comes in handy! Of course, when you're building these models yourself you can change the colours according the bricks that you have to hand. Having fun is the most important thing!
