These adorable custom game pieces were inspired by the 3D printing Easter Bilby Project, an initiative driven by @Creatrix_Britt on twitter in association with the Save the Bilby Fund to raise awareness for these endangered little marsupials in the land Down under. A project close to my heart being an Aussie myself, I knew I had to contribute!
Since the Bilby are in trouble, I thought creating a custom bilby game piece for the classic game “Trouble” made sense right? of course these cute tokens can be used in other games too from snakes and ladders to monopoly, they will make wonderful tokens and proxies.
Want to get these fun bilby game pieces for yourself?

Welcome to “Aussie Christmas,” a celebration of the festive season with a uniquely Australian twist. This year, I’m stoked to share with you a growing collection of models that capture the whimsical and warm spirit of an Australian Christmas.
Melting Snowman: A Sunny Holiday Tales
First up, meet our Melting Snowman. In the Aussie summer heat, the traditional snowman takes on a new form – one that’s more puddle than person! This cheeky character embodies the playful nature of an Aussie Christmas, reminding us of the sunny and bright holiday spirit down under.
Joey’s Worldly Adventure
The star of our collection is Joey, a baby kangaroo with a curious streak. Imagine Joey’s surprise when he stumbled upon Santa’s bag, mistaking it for a cozy pouch. Unlike his usual bouncy bed, this ‘pouch’ was filled with gifts and stationary – the perfect spot for a nap. But little did Joey know, his nap would turn into a magical journey across the globe on Santa’s sleigh!
Join Joey’s Journey
Now, it’s your turn to take part in Joey’s adventure. Download the model of Joey from Thangs.com and let him join your holiday celebrations. We’re excited to see how far Joey can travel – snap a photo of Joey in your part of the world and share it with us! Let’s track the global journey of this adorable Aussie traveller.
