Two bits of wood a motor and some sponge = LBP

My Little Big Planet for the Ps3 has arrived. Aside from some crazy and cool presentation styles and levels to play it does indeed have the most fantastic building kit. Many of us the last few years have got used to just making things in places like Second Life. Little Big Planet takes a seemingly more Blue Peter style with sponge, cardboard and a lot of sticky back plastic. Now I am no expert in building things yet but a minute or so yielded this quirky creation

What is interesting is that the style is photo realistic, but the setting is very homemade, so it allows photo realistic creations to make sense even when they are rough around the edges. The slapstick cartoon intentions and even the sackboy characters go nowhere near the uncanny valley, it is all utterly believable.
