We recently grabbed this LEGO® Harry Potter set in a birthday haul, and we couldn’t be happier with it! We’ve always loved owls, and Hedwig is one of the more striking icons of the Wizarding World. The build was a joy, with a number of interesting techniques, and the movement of the wings when cranked mimics the real-world motion of flapping in flight quite nicely.

LEGO® is no longer offering the Monthly Mini-Build program in stores, with December 2020 being the last month it was available, though at publish time it is not entirely clear from the official Monthly Mini-Build page whether or not it will be returning once the pandemic eases enough to allow stores to reopen.
The Monthly Mini-Build program was beloved by many, for many reasons. For one, it was an easy entry for younger builders, as well as free parts for the collectors among us. We salute the Monthly Mini-Build program with this series of animated instructions videos.
