Lego never ceases to amaze me! I always find something cool in Lego shop. I recently found a area in Milton Keynes shopping centre that I have never seen before. My son needed the toilet and whilst following the signs we stumbled upon a frog clock spitting out bubbles and best of all ... a Lego shop! Yay! My son went straight for the farm sets, other half was in a world of his own with the Star Wars bits and I was in awe of the Farmers Market display. I thought the best bit of my son's Lego truck was the drivers' cup and tool box so I thought the collection of little Lego fruit was so cute.

This set was so much fun to put together as it had a lot of Victorian architectural bits to build which I haven't had to do before. The only sets we've done in the past have been Star Wars, trucks or other boys stuff.
Difficulty of the build:
I have always found Lego instructions really good. You get the odd colour confusion mainly with blue/black and white/clear but it doesn't take long to fix. The building is made in three pieces and once made can be stacked onto each other but take each bit off to reveal the maze of spiral staircases and rooms.
Street base measures 10" x 10" (25.4 cm x 25.4 cm) and the building stands 13"" (33 cm) high ... I just wish we had a bigger house so that I could connect a few sets and make a Lego town! Maybe one day! We keep saying one day when we buy a house maybe if we luck out and get a three bedroom then we'll have a playroom and maybe then we could make a town.
* Mini fruits and baskets
* Mosaic flooring
* Iron gates
* Street lights
* Blue & white striped canopy
I love the blues and tan used in the building. It's something different from our normal buildings. Usually we grab for the mixed box of Lego bricks and end up with houses or buildings made of a number of rainbow colours.
A few facts:
* Released in 2007
* 1248 pieces
* Retails at £59.99
A great set for Lego fans! Oh and apparently you can make a cottage or a skyscrapper by building differently ... search the net for alternate instructions.
