Someone has designed a LEGO model of a toilet. While we are not sure if a LEGO toilet should be in LEGO’s portfolio, this creation, simply called The LEGO Toilet, submitted by NickLafreniere1 on LEGO Ideas genuinely puts a smile on our face.
Apparently, it did for many people too – judging from the number of supporters it has garnered on LEGO Ideas.
Congrats, Nick! I didn’t think it’d make it this far but man, it did anyways! Nick’s creation is not just any old model of a typical poop throne, btw.
Being the only LEGO Toilet on LEGO Ideas may have helped to draw some attention to it but it is the inner workings – yes you heard that right, it has inner workings – that make it such a darling.
With The LEGO Toilet, you’d be able to learn about the mechanical parts of a mundane and yet oh-so-necessary bathroom fixture – thanks to the Technic elements that simulate the flushing – without water, obviously.
NickLafreniere1 uses Technic pieces to create the mechanical parts like flushing arm, flapper, overflow tube, as well as the float – all of which you can admire through the transparent elements on the back of the toilet tank.
And it has a working toilet seat too, which you can choose to put down or raise up as you desire, and a removable toilet tank cover.
Nick’s proposed measures 21 cm long, 13 cm wide, and 22 cm tall (8.3 x 5.1 x 8.7 inches), packs 550 pieces and it is complete with a UCS-style information plaque with a miniature toilet model, a toilet brush, and a minifigure, presumably a plumber (who is definitely not the LEGO Mario plumber) with a toolbox and minifigure-scale plunger.
