LEGO Ideas Project I Am Amelia Earhart Gets 10K Thumbs Up Approval

Following the  success of the Modular Arcade as the next LEGO Ideas project that reached the needed 10k fan votes, we now have another one from Ellen Koojiman (or Alatariel over at LEGO Ideas) and Brad Meltzer that garnered the necessary support to qualify it for the First 2018 LEGO Ideas Review Stage – the LEGO Ideas I Am Amelia Earhart.

This LEGO Ideas project is based on the bestselling book series of the same title by Brad Meltzer and Chris Eliopoulos. It features a fairly small build of Amelia Earhart’s bright yellow Kinner Airster biplane nicknamed ‘The Canary’. The road to receive 10K votes was relatively long for this project since its inception and submission more than 2 years ago. The LEGO Ideas Project I Am Amelia Earhart comes in at 186 pieces and features a minifigure version of Earhart as rendered in the books.

This project will join the rest of other LEGO Ideas hopefuls including the Embraer A-29 Super Tucano (Smoke Squadron), SR-71A Final Flight, the Treehouse, Stitch, and Modular Arcade. Read on for more details about I Am Amelia Earhart LEGO Ideas project.

Now you can say: “I am Amelia Earhart!”

Amelia Earhart was a girl who loved adventure, and never let anybody stop her from trying new things. Even things that girls had never done before—like flying all the way across the Atlantic Ocean. Eventually she broke flying records and proved to the world that women can soar just as high as men.

Based on the bestselling book series by Brad Meltzer and Chris Eliopoulos, this set consists of the bright yellow biplane that Amelia Earhart bought for herself. She named it Canary (which is a cool name for a plane, right?).

Plus, you get an Amelia Earhart minifigure!

This set has a wonderful educational value, but it’s also downright fun. Fly! Zoom! And of course, soar!

The presented set consists of 186 parts. Please support it if you’d like to see it as a real product. Our true goal is to then give you the rest of the heroes in the book series: I am Abraham LincolnI am Rosa ParksI am Albert Einstein, and so many more…

Help give your kids real heroes.

Like the book says: I am Amelia Earhart. I know no bounds. And I hope you’ll remember that the greatest flight you’ll ever take is the one no one has tried before.
