LEGO Pool Inflatables | Unicorn and Flamingo Pool Floats

23 comments
Take your next home vacation by storm, with these LEGO Pool Inflatables!

I decided to design these two pool inflatables for two main reasons:

  1. No one can really go anywhere right now (in terms of vacations). So instead of waiting to go on vacation, how about bringing the fun to you!
  2. The thought of pool inflatables makes me so happy.

I have designed two of the most iconic pool floats, the Unicorn, and the Flamingo. I wanted to go further than just creating a ring, which is why I didn't design a donut or a pizza inflatable, but instead, I designed something more interesting to build. Both the Unicorn and the Flamingo pool float have necks that stick up from the ring, which I thought would be a fun challenge to build. They each come with their own stand for you to display. The whole set comes to a piece count of 1193, which makes it bigger than what you would think!

Let's look at each float separately:

The Unicorn

  • The Unicorn pool inflatable has a neck with rainbow hair on the back.
  • The horn of the Unicorn is Chrome Gold which gives it a very shiny, and special look.
  • The tail of the Unicorn was difficult to design. I had to make it so that the bricks could connect sideways. I eventually finished the tail by adding a 1 x 2 x 2 brick with studs on the side, which allowed me to build the tail going out.
  • The Unicorn Float has a total of 540 pieces, including the tail, excluding the stand.

The Flamingo

  • The Flamingo Float has a neck which starts by curving back in on itself and then finishes by curving the other way into the 'main face' which has the beak and the eyes (just like a real Flamingo).
  • The Flamingo Float has a total of 517 pieces, excluding the stand.

The stands are 68 pieces each, which includes a 24 x 24 baseplate, three round 6 x 6 bricks, four 3 x 3 x 2 round corner dome top bricks, 59 tile bricks, and a round 2 x 2 tile. This set includes two new LEGO bricks, which are featured on the stands. They are 2 x 4 tile bricks with 'Unicorn Pool Float' and 'Flamingo Pool Float' printed on them. You can see them in pictures 9 and 10.

I think that this should be a good LEGO set because the two inflatables are fun to build and would look great as a desktop accessory. I am open to suggestions, so if you think of anything that would make this set better, feel free to leave them in the comments as I will do my best to update this set in the future. You can also leave any questions you have about the set in the comments, and I'll do my best to answer them!

I enjoyed designing this set, and I am really happy with it. I hope you like it too, and thank you very much for your support!
