The Idea/Reasons

The Little Prince is a timeless tale written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, published in 1943. This iconic story tells the adventures of a young boy from a distant planet, who meets a pilot lost in the desert. Through their exchanges, the Little Prince reveals deep reflections on friendship, love, solitude and the importance of the imagination through his journey on the planets inhabited each by a strange and symbolic character. Each encounter offers a lesson in life, whether it is with the vain King, the Lamplighter or the Geographer obsessed with numbers.

The simple but profound language used by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry allows a deep reflection on the human condition. This captivating text combines poetry, philosophy and simplicity to offer a deep reflection on the human condition. In addition, The Little Prince has been translated into more than 300 languages and dialects, and its many adaptations have extended its reach.

The Little Prince remains a timeless masterpiece, loved by readers of all ages around the world, and continually rediscovered for its timeless wisdom and inimitable charm, making it an ideal partner for a LEGO set.

The Build

I based this product idea on the Little Prince’s book. I then decided to make (in 3D modeling) a Lego set that incorporates the important elements found throughout the story. The project contains 1 figurine: the Little Prince, accompanied by his Rose and his fox. I also added the plan that refers to Saint-Exupéry (author of the book) and in particular the planets (of different sizes) for the King (crown), the Vanity (flowers), the Drinker (bottles), the Lamplighter (lamp) and the Businessman (clock). The planet of the Little Prince (which is the largest) is the central part, lifted and held by a «arm» on a pedestal. The other planets and the plane are connected to this «arm» as if they were in orbit around.

The set contains 789 pieces.

In Memories

The Little Prince is still my favourite book. I learned a lot (as a child) because of him, because of the values he instills in us. Sometimes I reread it as an adult and this book never ceases to impress me! The universe has been adapted into films, cartoons and even comics because the values conveyed by this book find an echo with a wide audience. So I think it would be a good idea to adapt it to a LEGO set because it would be a tribute to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and his work.
