41019 Turtle’s Little Oasis Review

41019_Turtles_Little_Oasis_1This 33-piece set features the cutest little turtle just relaxing in its little waterfront abode. The blue plate and tan plates do a pretty good job of representing the surf and sand. The turtle’s hut feels pretty substantial and overall the set is pretty nice for what it is even with a price tag of $4.99.

The best part of the set is the turtle and you can’t get it in any other set. The only drawback though is that with its bow on, it’s a little front heavy and has a tendency to tip over. Still, he’s pretty cute. This is one of three animal packs in Series 1. And with Series 2 revealed the other day, you can bet more cute animal packs will be made. Besides, how else would 3188 Heartlake Vet stay in business? We bought our set from Target, but they are also available at Walmart and LEGO Shop@Home

Laugh if you will, but this has been the largest set that I’ve built thus far…certainly a vast progression from sets such as the singular handbag from Advent Calendar Day 19.  I built this set with my daughter and she loves to take the turtle in and out and pretend that it is going up and down the ramp.  The set includes several extra pieces that she likes to stash in the lower level of the turtle’s oasis.
