Details

WWT’s much-loved, amazing giant LEGO® brick animal trail returns to Llanelli Wetland Centre! Discover 14 GIANT LEGO brick animals on the UK's only wetland brick animal trail, with 3 NEW models never before seen at WWT Llanelli posing amongst their real-life cousins in our beautiful wetlands.

The giant models, some up to twelve times the size of the real wetland animals that inspired them, include Flavia the Andean flamingo, a riot of pink bricks; Emily the Emperor dragonfly, resplendently perched on a LEGO brick reed, and Benedict the Bewick’s swan, magnificently stretching his brick wings. Over 254,000 LEGO bricks were used to make our wetland animal family, and it took 1,561 hours to make all 14 giant wetland characters, with Fred the Frog taking the longest time to make at a whopping 244 hours!

Feeling creative? We'll also have our LEGO brick play tables ready for you to make your own amazing creations inspired by wetland wildlife - make sure you take a photo of what you create and share it with us on social media #LEGOBrickAnimals and you could win a prize for your efforts!

PLUS! October Half Term LEGO Brick Workshops (£10 per person, not including admission). As well as the trail, take part in our unique and popular hour-long, interactive LEGO brick workshops, perfect for LEGO fans – young and old! Suitable for ages 4+. Children must be accompanied by adults and vice-versa! (The cost of the workshop for each builder is £10, but an adult supervisor can watch for free). There are three main elements to our LEGO brick workshops:-

Mummy duck has lost her ducklings! Enjoy a team activity as you race against time (and the other team) to make as many ducklings as you can,

Individual Challenge - Show off your building skills in an exciting individual challenge as you make a vehicle for a wildlife ranger mini-figure to go on a ‘wetland wildlife safari’ – how far will yours travel?

Build Your Owl to Take Home - your chance to build your own LEGO brick owl to take home!

Spaces for the workshops are limited so book online to avoid disappointment.
