We got hit by a popular franchise and of course we had to build them up from basic Duplo bricks. After a few unsuccessful builds I got to the point where I had to discard an idea of building up the entire range. Only a few birds and one enemy passed through the sieve – a Red, The Blues and Chuck on one side and Piggy on the other.
Design is two-dimensional because I found out that builds may be too heavyweight in ball-style. Our models looked great on toddler’s bookshelf, but since then we mold them into some other creations (with only a few pics left after them).

This time another old school cartoon hero (puppet) – big (yellow) bird from Sesame street franchise. I used a round-edged “Octan” brick, which I preously used for a concrete mixer truck. Brick itself is made for a gas station sign. Another pretty rare brick is a triangle-shaped brick, used for a neck extension/back of the head.

Starting with Smurfs it would be a shame not to include Gargamel, the main antagonist and the sworn enemy of the Smurfs, along with his loyal companion, cat Azrael.
