Box Front



Box Back

The Downtown Bakery is full of sweet treats. Be careful not to get a tummy ache.



Box Contents

Open up the box and we get an instruction booklet, a light yellow 16x16 baseplate, a sticker sheet, and two numbered bags. I really like the color of the baseplate and I hope LEGO incorporates them into more sets. As of right now, the baseplate is exclusive to this set.



1st Bag Contents

Inside the first bag we get a lot of the big pieces. There are some nice pieces in dark pink, including some plates. I also like the dark tan log 1x2 bricks.

Exclusive to this set from the first bag:
  • Danielle's hair - it's Olivia's in blonde
  • Danielle's shirt
  • Yellowish Orange 1x3x2 arches
  • Mia's Chef shirt
  • Medium Azure 1x3 shallow arch




1st Bag Build - Structure



1st Bag Build - Sweets Counter

The first bag makes most of the structure and a display case with a croissant and some sort of pastry. I think the way they designed the sign and archway over the door is clever. The color combination is not overwhelming and it makes the set pop. The door build is a little funky and doesn't open all the way, but they did pretty well with the space allotted.



2nd Bag Contents

In the second bag we get a lot of the smaller and detail pieces. I really like the accessories in this set. My favorites are the phone, pretzel, stars, baguette, and cherries. I really love LEGO food.

Exclusive to this set from the second bag:
  • Dark tan stars
  • Yellowish Orange Kitchen tools (knives, forks, plates etc)
  • Dark tan 1x4 log bricks




2nd Bag Build

The second bag really adds all of the details and playability to the set. Out front we have flower boxes and a bin for baguettes. Also makes the oven, which isn't big enough for the bread, but it can fit the pretzel, and some of the smaller cakes. Inside we have some cake stands, some star cookies, a register, and even some flavored syrups. To me they seem like cherry and caramel. YUM!



Completed Build

I had reservations with this set initially. I was excited about the details but not really about the structure. But in building, I learned some interesting techniques that I hope to incorporate into my own MOCs.



Mia and Danielle

The minidolls are fabulous. Mia looks very professional in her chef attire. As a girl who doesn't dress up too often, I appreciate some more pants in Heartlake City. Danielle's shirt is beautiful. It's amazing the amount of detail they can print onto a small piece.



Extra Pieces

We get 20 extra pieces! Whoo hoo! This turn price per piece to about $0.11USD which makes the set a little more in my comfort zone. Nothing spectacular but I like those cherries and the star.

Overall, I think this is a win-win for children and adults. Children get great playability and could add this to any town. Adults get some awesome MOC parts in great colors that I plan to put to good use.
