Things We Saw Today: Help Make This LEGO Amelia Earhart Set a Reality
Up, up, and away!
Master builders Ellen Kooijman (Alatariel) and Brad Meltzer have devised this awesome Amelia Earhart LEGO set! You can vote for it to become an official set over on LEGO Ideas. Here’s what the creators have to say:
Amelia Earhart was a girl who loved adventure, and never let anybody stop her from trying new things. Even things that girls had never done before—like flying all the way across the Atlantic Ocean. Eventually she broke flying records and proved to the world that women can soar just as high as men.
Based on the bestselling book series by Brad Meltzer and Chris Eliopoulos, this set consists of the bright yellow biplane that Amelia Earhart bought for herself. She named it Canary (which is a cool name for a plane, right?).

Welp, that’s bittersweet.
