Twitter Praises Lego After Realizing They Cleverly Reuse Pieces In New Sets

Isn't it amazing when companies go out of their way to reuse their products? I find that it's both creative and eco-friendly at the same time.

Did you know that Lego is one of those companies? I had no idea until I stumbled upon this Twitter thread. Check it out and learn for yourself. What are you waiting for, huh? Go!

Twitter user @tokkan recently posted about an interesting discovery.

While assembling his Lego Bonsai tree, he realized that something was off about one of the pieces. His Lego Bonsai set used a small frog to fill in for a knot of wood.

But that's not all.

After discovering that, he quickly realized that the cherry blossom pieces are actually all made from frogs.

Do you know what that means? It means that Lego reuses their pieces to make other sets like this one. Isn't that so cool?

I think it's not only cool but also a great way for the company to be more eco-friendly.

Instead of making all new pieces, they end up recycling extra Lego pieces they already have to create brand new sets. Wow!

When this Twitter user posted about his discovery, he had no idea what he had started.

As it turns out, the post blew up. People started commenting and sharing it everywhere. It actually got over 66,000 likes. Isn't that something or what?

In fact, people started finding other interesting facts about Lego and this particular piece's designer.

Apparently, this designer really likes frogs. So much so, that he likes to hide them in his designs. OMG, isn't that so interesting to find out?

This Bonsai Lego set marks the most frogs ever hidden in one of his designs.

I find this little fact so fascinating. Am I weird, or do you also enjoy discovering fun facts like these, too?

As it turns out, Lego is known for doing things like that.

They often reuse pieces to save on production costs and to minimize waste. I think that is so commendable of them. Don't you think so, too? I wish more companies did that.

Other Lego pieces also reuse certain aspects of their previous designs.

Here somebody posted a picture of their latest Lego creation. This x-wing set uses carrot pieces for its boosters. Oh my goodness, how cute is that? I absolutely love that idea.

If you weren't as impressed with Lego before, I bet this might change your mind, huh?

I didn't know this about the company. Now that I know this little fact, I've gained even more respect for them, alright. What a great idea indeed.
