Lego of My Cat!

Someone once said…”Whoever created Legomade the world a more fun and more painful place.”  Many of us probably remember more than one occasion of experiencing that excruciating pain from accidentally stepping on Lego bricks. Ouch!

Below are two Lego inspired cat sculptures to take your mind off it. Feel better now?  >^..^<

For history buffs, we checked with todayifoundout.com and learned that …

In 1934, Danish carpenter Ol Kirk Kristiansen, the founder of what we now know of as Lego®, asked his staff to come up with a good name for his growing toy company.  The two names that ended up being finalists were “Legio” and “Lego”.  The first was a reference to a “legion” as in a “Legion of toys”.  The second, which won out, was made from a contraction of “leg godt”, which is a Danish phrase meaning “play well”.  Interestingly, “lego” is also a Latin word meaning “to gather or collect”, which is somewhat fitting, given what their most popular product ended up being.

We then did some feline focused research and found a company called JEKCA (based in Hong Kong) who create innovative and elegant building block products using their own in-house design, marketing and production teams. And yes, they make lots of cat models!

Are you sensing a contest coming? You’d be right! [details below]

The cat models shown in the photos aren’t made with “real’ Lego bricks, so we had to ask…”What’s the main difference between Lego and your bricks?” Here’s what the JEKCO team told us:

Since the patent of LEGO expired decades ago, plenty of building blocks products appeared in the market. But most of them closely following the LEGO design and there is hardly any breakthrough. Our founder thought that he could do something more with building blocks and extend the possibilities. So he spent considerable time inventing a new kind of building blocks with a unique new locking system … introducing JEKCA bricks. We have patents granted from different countries like the USA, EU, China, Japan, Korea…etc, for our unique locking mechanism.

In the JEKCA system all the bricks are tightly locked together so you never have to worry that an unfinished item will suddenly collapse.

We then asked, “How much time does it take to assemble a cat?” The JEKCA team responded with…

It depends on how free you are. If you are free and concentrated, you can finish a cat in a day. Some customers might spend a week building it. The procedure is quite straightforward and all you need is time.

You already love cats. Do you love Lego too? If so, you'll love these Lego inspired cat sculptures!Click To Tweet

JEKCA also offer fab feline wall murals that you assemble just like the sculptures (examples on wall in photo below).

The JEKCA team were kind enough to offer us 3 kits from their cat collection that three lucky Purrington Post readers won. These winners got to select from any of the choices in the JEKCA cat sculptures collection.
