40449 Easter Bunny’s Carrot House will be the gift with purchase at LEGO.com with orders exceeding $60 (and probably £60/€60) from the 15th March until Easter Monday, 5th April.
So, assuming stocks last you’ll receive one when you buy 21326 Winnie the Pooh when it’s released on the 18th.
The curious looking carrot-shaped house is habited by a cute grey bunny with long ears and a cupcake for a tail. Some might have preferred it if the rabbit minifigure had been resurrected and included instead, but I quite like this brick-built one.
The medium lavender eggs are something of a rarity, having appeared in only one set until now. I’m not sure if they are supposed to be flowers or Easter eggs growing outside the bunny’s house but, whatever, they add interest and colour.
The back is open to enable the interior to be accessed. Inside there’s a chest of drawers with a mirror above, an attractive mat on the floor and some pictures hanging on the wall. All decorations in the set are stickers.
There’s not enough room to swing a cat inside (or should that be rabbit) but it looks very homely and cosy!
There are around 86 orange parts in it, including three sizes of curved slope, so even if you have no interest in the model it’s a great set for parts if you’re in need of them in that colour.
It’s a different, whimsical and charming set that will delight all that see it: another gift with purchase that will encourage spending at LEGO.com on full price items, and that, after all, is their main purpose.
“I knew I shouldn’t have left the front door open!”
Thanks to LEGO for providing the set for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
Thanks to my wife and Alice for constructing the set. Any building mistakes are theirs 🙂
