I got the LEGO Fun in the Park set a couple of days after it was released but I got so busy that I didn’t get to build it right away. I got it because it features the first “official” LEGO baby and of course, I had to have him.The first LEGO baby that I ever saw was the one that came with the Native American woman in Series 15, but I was never able to get her for our collection. That baby is super cute but I don’t think they consider it the first official baby because it’s just a single piece and just has a little head sticking out of a papoose. There are other babies that appeared in different sets, like Maggie Simpson and the baby thay comes with the babysitter in Series 16, but I guess this new one is the “official first baby” because it comes in a set and not a blind bag.
Anyway, I finally got around to building this set today and I am so pleased with everything in the set. It is a simple build but the whole set is meant to be played with and offers a lot of possibilities for imaginative play.
The variety of the minifigures you get in this set is pretty representative of people you see on a day-to-day basis and represents a wide range of ages, abilities and occupations.
My only complaint is that there could be a little more variety in hair pieces. The variety in the color of the hair pieces was fine but I feel like the hairstyles were all modeled after characters from Home Improvement.I can’t wait to show Bean this new set and see how all these new minifigures settle into his collection.
