I Am Amelia Earhart!


Now you can say: "I Am Amelia Earhart!”

Amelia Earhart was a girl who loved adventure, and never let anybody stop her from trying new things. Even things that girls had never done before—like flying all the way across the Atlantic Ocean. But here’s her real secret: She wasn’t a natural pilot. She wasn’t the best pilot. She just worked harder than anyone else.

Eventually she broke flying records and proved to the world that women can soar just as high as men.

Based on the bestselling book series by Brad Meltzer, this set consists of the bright yellow biplane that Amelia Earhart bought for herself. She named it Canary (which is a cool name for a plane, right?). Plus, you get an Amelia Earhart minifigure!

This set has a wonderful educational value, but it’s also downright fun. Fly! Zoom! And of course, soar!

The presented set consists of 186 parts. Please support it on LEGO Ideas if you’d like to see it as a real product. Our real goal is to then give you the rest of the heroes in the book series: I Am Abraham Lincoln, I Am Rosa Parks, I Am Albert Einstein, and so many more…

Help give your kids real heroes.

Like the book says:
I am Amelia Earhart.
I know no bounds.
And I hope you’ll remember that the greatest flight you’ll ever take is the one no one has tried before.

This project is a collaboration between Ellen Kooijman (Alatariel) and Brad Meltzer. For more information, images and discussion please check
