Long time, no see! I’ve been offline for a while, but this weekend’s requests from two moms prompted me to share this post. Mind you, the majority of the work for this one fell to Matt. Let me explain…
Two years ago he built an amazing LEGO Leprechaun trap. Although we didn’t catch any of those sneaky little Irish fellows with it—or with last year’s trap (simulated in the computer images on this page), his design has garnered some interest since it was posted in 2011. For the sake of the mothers who contacted me this weekend saying that they’d like to make this for their children, Matt agreed to come up with instructions.
He initially intended to use photos or video but decided to go with LEGO® Digital Designer instead. The images on this page are from those plans, and you can access the instructions by downloading this file: 2012 TipsnTidbits.com LEGO Leprechaun Trap.
In order to use them, you’ll need to download LEGO® Digital Designer as well. According to Matt, it’s “a free program that is great fun.” You can load the .lwf file into that program and get fantastic 67-stage step-by-step instructions.
Give it a whirl and let us know how it goes. And may the luck of the Irish be with you!
Note: The instructions are for the trap pictured on this page—the one that was still assembled from 2012. We do not have instructions for the 2011 “phone booth” model posted here. Perhaps after this one is disassembled…
