21315 Pop Up Book Announced

LEGO Ideas can be a bit of a weird place sometimes with a lot of projects taking advantage of existing IPs to help get them the 10k votes needed. Occasionally though an interesting and unique project will make it’s way through to not only get the required votes but to also pass review. That’s exactly what we have here with 21315 Pop Up Book.

This brick build LEGO book may look unassuming from the outside, but open it up and you get to experience two iconic children’s stories presented with detailed pop-ups.

The first of the two stories is Little Red Riding Hood. This build features a detailed house and three minifigures; Grandma, Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. The house itself looks fantastic and the Wolf minifigure is outstanding.

The second of the included stories is Jack and the Beanstalk. Another absolute classic.

This build features a microscale village, towering beanstalk and a castle for the giant. The giant is presented as a standard minifigure while Jack is a microfig. I think using the microfig for Jack is a great idea.

The printing on the giant features key parts of the story with the goose and a golden egg both tucked in his pockets.

The set features 859 parts, allowing you to create the book and both scenes. Obviously only one scene can be placed in the book at a time but you can have both built – the scenes are designed to be easily swapped out. You can also build your own scenes to place in the book.

The set will cost $109.99 here in Australia and will be available from November 1st.

Let me know what you think? I am really impressed with this and think it looks better than the original submission. I think I prefer the Red Riding Hood scene over the Jack and the beanstalk, but both are great.
