A Life-Size, Custom-Made Lego Version of Your Cat Is a Thing You Could Own
Legoland is offering one lucky cat owner across Australia exactly that.
While cats aren't known for being overly affectionate, there are many ways you can show them love. You can have their face plastered across a mask (or a pair of swimmers), channel your inner Picasso and recreate them on a canvas, or just buy them a box — because if there's one thing cats like, it's a plain ol' box.
Only one adorable cat can get immortalised in Lego, however. We're not talking about just sticking a few bricks together at home, either. Inspired by International Cat Day, Melbourne's Legoland Discovery Centre will build a life-size replica of one lucky cat.
If you're already clearing a spot for your new Lego addition to the family — and wondering how your fluffball will react to their own likeness — you'll need to submit a photo of your cat on the Legoland Discovery Centre's Facebook page, specifically to its competition post between now and 11.59pm on Tuesday, August 25.
You'll also need to explain why your russian blue or ragdoll should get the Lego treatment, which shouldn't be hard. Serve up the best answer, and Master Model Builder Kieran Jiwa (yes, that's a real job) will recreate your cat with in tiny plastic bricks. Expect the final product to look a little like this:
While the contest terms and conditions don't require entrants to live in Melbourne, the winner will need to head by in person to pick up their prize (restrictions allowing, of course).
You'll also need to like the Legoland Discovery Centre's Facebook page to enter, and include your pet's name, age, breed and one crazy fact about them with your submission. If your cat loves swimming, can dance or has learnt to play 'Chopsticks' on the piano, don't keep that detail to yourself.
To enter the Lego Cat Competition, visit the Legoland Discovery Centre Facebook page before 11.59pm on Tuesday, August 25.
