This one is a classic – a colorful Macaw parrot. I made this one in two most distinctive color variants – classic scarlet macaw and blue-yellow macaw. I experimented a bit with beak and legs. As you can see, you can substitute them with some other darker tones with not much difference. Just keep those colorful ones in their place.
One thing – this creation won’t stand on it’s own, so I used a black colored stand.

Summer’s coming to an end and it’s time to start building again. I tried my best to build a one off this time. Let’s put it this way – how to fulfill a classic father’s dream and incorporate some real badassness into your toddler’s play? I believe a tipical american muscle car out of basic Duplo bricks and a little imagination should do it. I had in mind a Mustang’s GTO, but a silhouette let’s you opt for a different one too.
Tyre-wise I had to use simple black bricks, as Duplo doesn’t have any standard useful bricks, but uses a complete chassis (sort of a brick with supported tyres that do not come off). Engine brick looks as thought it was made for this model and really nails it down, doesn’t it?

Minimalistic concept of a giraffe, built out of only 5 basic Lego Duplo bricks. A creation with so few bricks like this one, needs a little boost of imagination to help one associate it with a real animal. This simplistic build incorporates all the vital parts – head, long neck and legs and a tail.

This extraordinary sea creature can be made out of 8 to 11 basic Lego Duplo bricks, considering the use of 2×4 instead of 2×2 bricks – I did it twice this time, bause of the lack of 2×2 brown bricks. In this exact replication you can see a 9 brick version.
I opted for genuine colors, including yellow bottom.

I tried hard to build a minimalistic bird from Lego Duplo before, but with no mentionable results. This time I nailed down one of them, a classic eagle. It’s pretty much built out of basic 2×2 bricks, the only extra addition being a brick for legs with claws.

Down on the farm this time, spending time with a nice rooster. Colors are crucial with this silhouette, so you might have some trouble, as brown colors are pretty rare in Lego Duplo. Bottom orange brick can easily be replaced with a standard 2×2 one.

Redbull Air Race inspired acrobatic airplane. It’s a biplane version with 2 pairs of wings stucked one above the other. Bright and lively colors are a must, of course.

For every construction site fan out there, a simple and sleek Lego Duplo tower crane. I used a bit special brick here to make it able to rotate. Height-wise – one can always extend it if needed. I had to keep it low on this picture because of my small lightroom “studio”.

Another take on a simple Duplo doggy. I tried my best to keep it under 7 bricks. I opted for a slightly different head variant and combined a lined brick for lower jaw and tail. Color-wise the build is pretty lame, I know – I just don’t have all those bricks in a single color.
