1:25 The campaign for Lego to make a Kākāpō set

Hayden Pickford designed and built a lego kākāpō out of pieces from other sets.

He then submitted it to the Lego Ideas website, and if it achieves 10,000 supporters then Lego will review the design and it may become an official product to be sold worldwide.

Last week it got to 5,000 supporters and has 600 days to get to 10,000. If you want to lend your support you can click here to sign up
