Australian Life Recreated Using Lego

Lego is certainly one of the most recognisable and universal toys of a generation. In fact some adults carry their love of that little plastic brick all the way into adulthood. And why not I say! Especially when you recreate such cute replicas of Aussie life.

29 year old web designer and musician, Matt Green has been recreating Australian life through his Lego Mini figures an sharing them with his followers. His photos are shared on his Instagram account titled lego_minifigs_australia and they have really struck a chord with people.

From the Sydney Opera House to watching the cricket, Mr Green’s ‘minifigs’ have attracted over 5,000 Instagram followers since his first post six months ago.

The account started as a hobby for Mr Green who still holds fond memories of building Lego as a child.

‘I was into Lego cities as a kid. I couldn’t ever take one apart after building it, you could almost say I had OCD when it came to my Lego sets,’ he said. ‘In Instagram terms I’m an adult fan of Lego, or an ‘AFOL’.’

In the future Green says he would love to turn his best pictures into postcards, or a coffee table book, however he would need to seek permission from Lego beforehand.

‘I’m not sponsored by Lego in any way,’ he said. You cant profit from Lego unless you have a licence or agreement with them.’
