angry birds (the pigs)

    Newer Older

    A lot of you have probably already heard of Angry Birds, a really addictive game you can play on a lot of phones. Tom would play it while we waited at the school for our youngest son, and I would think it looked silly...a waste of time. That is until I tried it and became a bigger Angry Birds addict them him. I beat the game, then beat all The Seasons ones they put out (currently trying to slowly play the St. Patrick's one so it is not over so very soon)

    Then we got the version for the PS3 for the kids to play (although I haven't even played that one yet...I'd prefer a version for the DS) Our youngest son loves the characters and even has about a million drawings he has made of them all over our house.

    I thought for his birthday that I would make him some small plush based on the chracters, but weight them with a mixture of rice/polyfil for weight. Tom bought a sling shot and now he can play a real life version of angry birds with blocks, the characters, and a sling shot. Think this amazing cake, but not edible ;)

    I think we are going to try and surprise him and set it all up on one of the tables downstairs on the morning of his party, so we will see how that goes. :)

    I made all the birds including the oversized red bird. The yellow birds were probably the fastest to make...but the pigs were the most fun! In the end there are 12 birds, and 6 pigs. Most can fit easily into the palm on your hand because they are on the small side.

    Now I am off to go get started on the birthday cake(s).....I'll be back some time Sunday with photos to share.

      Thanks! It is such a fun game, and I'm not a huge game person. I love Katamari and all the lego games, but that's about it. Angry Birds however made me an addict from the very first one I played. :)

      Thanks Molly, that is one amazing lunch! I need to make my kids bento style lunches. Only my youngest does not like his food to "touch". I need to try and make some for my oldest son though, I think he would love them.

      If you ever want to make some money I would totally buy a set of them from you. I too as well as my husband and 3 year old son all love the game! How neat to create a real life version for youself!
