The Flintstones StoryLearn more about the story behind The Flintstones set.
Meet the Fan DesignerOriginally from Manchester, England, US-based designer Andrew creates artwork for video games. In his free time, he creates art as well as photography. But his big passion is building LEGO® sets, both official ones and his own designs.
How and when did you get into building with LEGO® bricks?I remember being amazed by all the details and working functions from my brother’s 8860 Technic Car set, from around 1985. I liked to build cars, robots and spaceships. As with most LEGO fans, there was a period when other things took over, but around 2013, I got back into it and found LEGO CUUSO, now known as LEGO Ideas.
What inspired you to make this Flintstones model?I have fond memories of watching The Flintstones growing up, and even now as an adult I enjoy it. I wanted to bring those memories to life in a LEGO build that would be fun for kids, nostalgic for adults and would translate well into a LEGO set.
I love how The Flintstones have most of the tech we have, such as a music player but done in a primitive way, such as a bird’s beak playing the music disc, and the grass gets eaten, rather than cut!
