Still looking for a killer gift for your loved ones? LEGO Pop-Up Book!
Back to childhood time, one of the excitement was my aunt gifted me a Disney Pinocchio storybook with all my favorite characters pop up for every single page I flipped. I was jaw-dropping and boom-pow how a human can make such a visual epic appealing 3D book (in no technology 1993 era).
Nowadays, we can easily find pop-up printed greetings card and further advanced with the power of technology, Augmented Reality (AR) replaced tangible pop-up that fulfill our wilder fantasy needs.
Meanwhile, LEGO Builders (credit to Davis & Allemann) made another big leap of creativity, those little plastic bricks empowered by a super smart mechanism, the book brings fantastic fascination to LEGO fans when witnessing how amazingly the structure pop-up when the book opens and pulls it back in perfectly when the book closes.
The book features two classic English fairy tales: [Little Red Riding Hood] and [Jack and the Beanstalk]. Both story structures are switchable in one book, it’s completed with a total of 860 bricks including 4 minifigures. Averagely, it took me 3 – 4 hours to configure it slowly and enjoy its wonder of mechanical brick works!
LEGO Pop Up Book: Little Red Riding Hood
The first story tale structure I constructed was the Little Red Riding Hood. Started with the book cover, it served as a solid base to support the mechanism bricks.
The design covers the scene properties such as pieces of furniture as described in the folktale, 3 main characters the brave Little Red Riding Hood, Grandma and the Wolf.
You will discover LEGO utilizes plenty of unique shape bricks to make the pop-up structure works perfectly.
The structure makes you feel the fusion of intelligent, quality, the precision that produced such an impressive unique art (and toy).
LEGO Pop Up Book: Jack and the Beanstalk
Along the way, there is a bundle of those little unique shaped bricks to build up the special structure.
The creativity is not limited by just these two European folktales, you can build your own story on the mechanism pillars. Worth to buy? Yes! Definitely smart a collection to keep.
