As a child, I loved sitting and spending hours excruciatingly and lovingly building little LEGO block structures. But, watching my sister bump into them, causing them to fall apart completely was truly heartbreaking.

1. Sariel Bricks and Pets’ LEGO Flip Clock
Say hello to Sariel Bricks and Pets’ LEGO Flip Clock! The build looks and operates exactly like an old mechanical flip clock, and in fact even utilizes the same gear and mechanism to tell time.

It stands 44 cm wide and 15 cm tall (17.4″ by 5.9″), and features a 10:1 gear ratio for counting down the minutes, and a 12:1 gear ratio for the hours (allowing it to reset every 12 hours).

He started creating it by utilizing assorted bricks that were laying around at home, and the result was a 36-inch by 24-inch LEGO baseball stadium. With time, he included specifically needed LEGO bricks that he bought online, building the majestic model we see today!
6. LEGO Hourglass
Brick Dangerous built a LEGO version of an hourglass that actually works on the LEGO Ideas Forum. The hourglass features a LEGO transparent chamber that houses LEGO brick granules, which slowly move down from the upper vial to the lower vial, counting down time as they succumb to gravity. LEGO Master Builder ‘Brick Dangerous’ built this creation in three color variants, although with the schematic you could pretty much create your own color scheme too.
