So my girlfriend Apple gladly volunteered to assemble the kit as I happily took pictures of the whole process.
Opening the box:
There were about 147 pieces of bricks according to the box. They came in mostly shades of brown with the fruit pieces in more pastel colors.
As usual the manual didn't seem to have all the instructions
|Checkin out the pieces|
|And there it is the Chicken piece hat convinced me to buy|
I think I've been building too many Sluban toys lately as the figures of the Ausini set filled us with great satisfaction. The minifigs were almost Lego like. The only thing messing up the illusion was the funky expressions on the figs' faces.
|Yep this convinced me to buy the set|
The included food pieces were awesome and seemed pretty close to the real LEgo ones:
And this is the first time I saw a horse that needed assembly! Normally in LEgo kits the horse pieces are already prebuilt.
Oh this is shaping up to be a real nice looking set if I do say so myself. Look at that plated turkey/chicken monster! And the bushels of food stuff beside it!
Almost done now! The horse is assembled and so is the cart! At this point in time the cart looked eerily like the cart from my Lego LOTR Gandalf set. The price disparity of course was big between my LOTR cart and this one.
And all of these for 179 pesos.
This is an awesome kit and has enough little details to make the scene come alive.
I'll be getting more of the Ausini Farm series it seems.
