Favorite New LEGO Bricks
Even with only 168 LEGO bricks, this set boasts a few notable bricks!
The zebra-striped off-road vehicle is cool, but my kiddos are most pleased with the addition of the lioness (brick 6287660) and parrot (brick 6178520) to his growing LEGO collection. The wild cat LIONESS is definitely the BIG WIN of this LEGO set.
Minifigure Tree Costume + Props
Two new explorer Minifigures with props including a camera, mug, and binoculars — all the necessities for a wild-animal safari photo shoot. The set includes a male and female Minifigure and each head has two printed face options.
The tree costume (brick 6207142) is also a fun touch, perfect for sneaking up on unsuspecting animals in the wild (or for having parrots land on!)
The beauty of this safari-themed LEGO set is that it encourages creative play. Immediately after my son built this set, the kids started thinking of the other animals that would be a good fit with this set. My son grabbed a LEGO dog and my daughter grabbed the LEGO black jaguar, and a plastic tiger. The other animals became part of the scene and were immediately incorporated into the story. Nya (the Ninjago Water Ninja) even joined the fun, as the lioness became her pet. Of course, in classic kid humor, the poor photographers had their butt’s bitten. Ouch!
The kids do not have any complaints with this set, but they do wish that the doors of this off-road vehicle (perhaps a Jeep?) would open. The doors are only decorative so to access the inside of the vehicle you need to take the roof off.
Overall, we’re REALLY pleased with the Safari adventure off-road vehicle set, especially as Spring of 2021 this set costs only about $20 USD. It’s a great addition to our growing LEGO collection.
