The Japanese "nanoblock" tree frog.

I got this for my birthday a few months back, and today I tried to assemble it in the pub.

It's like Lego blocks, just teeny-weeny miniature Lego.

The smallest part is 4x4x5mm (according to the packet).

Has anybody actually managed to make a full frog from the instructions?

It's designed by Kawada in Japan.

I so much want my little froggie, but as soon as it gets to the green bits, it loses me completely.

Is this actually supposed to work?
I'm starting to think this is a gimmick.

Well, apparently this dude on YouTube did it.

Has anybody actually made one of these models?

Never-mind that time you had ten shooters and fell on your butt ...

I can't really remember that anyway, so I'm over it long time.

But today you brought the nanoblock Japanese Tree Frog to the bar, and everybody suddenly was interested in what you're doing.

And the shame, I couldn't get it right.

Will I ever regain my face, and self-respect?

Darn you, wily plastic amphibian!

I've got a better idea: Go outside for a walk through the woods. Find a lonely looking real frog. Teach it to sing and dance. Take it to the pub instead of the fake frog. Have a few shots with the frog and tell each other stories about the Great Amphibian War of 1862. Create a friend who eats your houseflies but never your cheesecake! You both win!

Frogs hey?
But that was sex education at Stellenberg High.
Be like a frog-bro.
Go swimming with a female and rub her tummy.
But that's nature.
I'm so glad I learnt the facts of life before anybody else.
