Xylophone
About this creation




After building a tiny 8-inch xylophone for my new book Amazing ABC, I desperately wanted to create a giant version. It was so colorful and fun looking that I wanted to feel like a tiny person surrounded by a giant toy.




Our eyes are funny with color: sometimes you can put one color next to another and it makes the color look completely different. In this case, I was particularly happy with how the LEGO "Dark Red" color looks like purple when it's placed next to blue.











The sculpture is 6 feet long, contains over 13,500 LEGO pieces, and sounds absolutely terrible.

I'm guessing you've already tried sweeping across all of the bars with the stick. Great work on this!

"Sounds terrible" Haha... Excellent work as always, could you build a scaled up Double Base with stand? This could become a whole series of instruments. ~Thoy

Amazing build! I love all the different colors that you used and it truly is amazing how that dark red looks like purple next to blue...absolutely genius! And I can barely tell that the mini one (or more like life sized one) is made out of Lego. Such a simple object made into a great sculpture. 5/5! :) - J

Even if it sounds terrible, do the different slabs make different tones?
