angry birds

Last month my little brothers ordered a bunch of Angry Birds plush toys. They came in the mail about two weeks ago. So, instead of Albert and Hyrum playing Angry Birds as an application on my parents' phones, they got the Lincoln Logs and built their own scenarios. 
The yellow bird has been captured by the pigs.
The next day, I decided that it would be cool if I surprised Albert and Hyrum with this (I must admitt) pretty awesome set up of Angry Birds. So I sat on my living room floor building a structure with Lincoln Logs, Tinker Toys, Marble Works, and Lego's. Sure, it doesn't look like much, but nothing beat the smiles on my little brother's faces when they saw this. Hyrum was able to see it about an hour before Albert, and his smile disappeared once he discovered that he could not shoot the birds until Albert got home.

For those of you who don't know the story of angry birds, this is it: The pigs were hungry and stole the birds eggs to eat. The birds were angry and wanted revenge.
After my brothers got the stuffed animals they heard about the new Angry Birds movie called Rio. They can't wait to see it. It's made by the same producer as Ice Age. Because I love Ice Age so much, Rio suddenly became a must see on my movie list. And then.... to add to my excitment..., will.i.am and Jamie Foxx sang Rio's theme song on American Idol last week.

As a family, we love watching American Idol together and judging for ourselves who is the best. And when they sang this song, because of Albert and Hyrum's love for Angry Birds... We all decided we're going!

In my opinion making scenarios for Angry Birds is a great and fun thing do do with your kids or younger siblings when they are bored.  All you need is a couple stuffed animals, and something to build the scenarios with.  You could use anything. Cereal boxes, toilet paper rolls, empty cans,  old milk jugs or cartons, story books, ect. The sky's the limit.

My set up may look sturdy and strong, but it took Albert and Hyrum each three hard throws with the birds before the whole thing was destroyed.
Try it, I guarantee anyone who contributes with this project will have a blast!



  1. Kool idea! I will have to do this with my granddaughter!!!!

  2. AWESOME. I confess I would do this for me and not the kids. I am an Angry Bird addict :)
