A bunny as sweet as his basket of colorful eggs

If you’ve ever wondered why Easter is associated with bunnies and eggs, you’re not alone! But like many things, it dates back hundreds of years. The legend of a bunny that lays colorful eggs started as a German children’s story that was eventually brought to the US in the 1700’s. Now these symbols of spring and fertility spark “Easter egg hunts” across the world. Today is the second most lucrative day of the year for candy-makers (after Halloween). I particularly like this LEGO tribute, built by Daniel Stoeffler, because the bunny is a little reminiscent of illustrations from old children’s books, like Peter Rabbit. Now, if you celebrate, don’t forget to leave a carrot out for him!

Lifelike features in models are some of my favorite! Daniel says he had inspiration from another LEGO bunny, built by Felix Jaensch.

I’m not entirely sure how Easter is celebrated in other countries, but in the US it means the Easter Bunny is coming. This mysterious character, who secretly delivers and hides colorful eggs filled with candy, is the mascot of springtime. And while Easter is still a serious religious holiday for many people, it’s an excellent excuse to play and celebrate. Koen Zwanenburg’s rabbit (looking very much like the Nesquik bunny) is a fun tribute to the season! My favorite parts are the croissant eyebrows and cloud plate cheeks!

Koen says the eggs in the wheelbarrow are actually “easter eggs” of LEGO themes. Can you guess what they are?

Just in time for Easter, our friend Jason Allemann and his partner Krystal (JK Brickworks) have brought us another marvelous, moving creation! Festive candy seems to be a common theme in their builds lately. This one is an adorable bunny with a unique talent of pooping out chocolate eggs! They have used the new Boost robotics system again, and the design is incredibly simple. It’s so simple that young people could probably build something similar. That’s not to say it isn’t uniquely cute and clever all wrapped into one perfect, pooping package!
