Big W has a range of sets marked down to what they are calling clearance prices. Overall the discounts aren’t incredible, but they do have the 20th anniversary Slave I for just $99.

I’ve heard a few people mention that they can’t see the $99 price for the Slave I so I apologise in advance if you can’t see it. It seems to be related to your local click and collect options.

Thanks to Alyssa for the heads up.

10907 World Animals is a world of fun (and animals)

Today I am taking some time to embrace my inner toddler as I check out the big new Duplo set 10907 World Animals.

As the name suggest World Animals is a trip around the world exploring the animals found in each region. It’s a concept that LEGO has done in the past and in theory it’s a great way to teach kids about the world and animals.

For each part of the set I’ll be looking at two factors that are very important when it comes to a Duplo set and impressing a toddler: Cuteness and Coolness.

Australia

duplo-world-animals-australia

Let’s kick things off with something close to home – the Australian section. The set description refers to this area as “a tropical beach” but I’m claiming it as North Queensland. It comes with Nemo – it’s got to be here.

This section of the set features a really nice sandcastle build with a flag. I have a son who practically lives in his sandpit so this part was a hit with him. There is also a palm tree and a really great van.

The animals included are a clownfish (that blows bubbles underwater) and a toucan. Toucans are from South and Central American rainforests but I think this is just the most interesting bird mold they had available. It’s still cute.

There are two figures associated with this area – a father and daughter wearing nice blue and yellow wetsuits.

The set comes with Nemo – that is both cool and cute. The sandcastle is really cool. The van is really cool too. The dad and little girl are wearing matching wetsuits and that is cute.

LEGO Drops Disney Train Price By $50

Lots if people said the Disney Train and Station was overpriced. I guess LEGO agrees as they’ve dropped the price by $50.

That’s right if you are a VIP you can get the set for $499 now.

Still expensive but less so now.

Disney Train And Station Now Available For VIPs

I know there was plenty of discussion about the price but if you are looking to get 71044 Disney Train and Station now is your chance as the set is available for VIPs.
