I am a fan of dolphins. I have swam with dolphins. I have been scuba diving with dolphins. I even kissed a dolphin underwater once. (It was in Mexico, I was younger, and that’s all I have to say about that.) So when I was asked to build a dolphin, it seemed like something I could handle.

I worked with the Make-A-Wish foundation to make a wish come true for a special little girl, who not only loved dolphins, but also loved LEGO toys. I created this sculpture so that she could have her very own LEGO dolphin.
What are the greatest things about a LEGO dolphin?

  1. Doesn’t require water.
  2. Doesn’t need to be fed.
  3. Made of plastic so it will be around thousands of years after real dolphins are extinct.
