The cart:

The cart is bright and colourful, although I had a bit of trouble getting the roof on without making the flowers ping off! I’m sure there is a knack to this, I just didn’t have it!

At the back of the cart is some cookies in a barrel. Don’t get me started on the barrel of cookies….

The flower seller is conscientious enough to bring is own shovel and broom! Keeping the neighbourhood tidy!

The Flower Seller:

The flower seller is a yellow faced smiley chappie, with a very basic traditional LEGO face and those green overalls that seem to pop up in every set going! He also comes with a bucket!

Overall:

I like the idea of this cart, and I like the idea of having multiples selling different things. However, the fact that the flowers pop off all the time, and adding the roof can destroy your flowers, kind of annoyed me during the build process. I also just don’t get the cookies. Why would there be cookies under a flower cart? Can someone explain this to me? Is this a thing?

But yes, quite a cute poly-bag and worth getting hold of one (or two) to add to your LEGO towns!!

Why are there COOKIES?
