40166 Legoland Train

Wow! Look at this cuteness! While browsing Facebook the other day I came across a post that showed this gem! WHAT! I've never seen or even heard about this Lego. I immediately did a google search and had to have it.

This train can only be found at Legoland and seems to have been produced just for the park or parks. I don't even know for sure if you can get it at any of the parks or just the one in Florida. We've been to both, the Orlando area park and other park in Carlsbad, California more than once and have never seen a special Lego available.

What an amazing build I'll share with you below!! 

Here are the entire contents of the box. 

Instruction book was folded in half but otherwise decent condition. I've had them arrive new from Lego much worse before, the cardboard is a great idea but seems to only happen in more expensive sets. 

Here are all the bags. I was a little baffled with the way the bags were numbered. Anyone who buys Lego regularly knows that isn't the norm. I chalked it up to being produced just for the parks, on a smaller scale. No harm, just different. 

The sticker sheet. Of course we would all be happier with printed tiles but at least there are some nice stickers. You have the park map, which is my favorite, along with a train sign, the controls and some others. 

Here is the entire set built. It was a fun and easy build that didn't take too long at all. A nice amount of time in fact that it was longer than a small $10 ish one yet not quite as involved as a $20-30 set. The four characters are especially nice although can we please get some new printed shirts. We have so many of that same one the boy is wearing. 

Love how the characters fit inside the train nicely. They really did a nice job in my opinion with being able to fit 3 in the car along with the conductor. 

The roof plates comes off for easy access! Thank goodness because no way were they going in easy otherwise. 

Details of the front of the train! 

And the characters in the passenger car. 

Close up of the little sign! 

Guess this means I now have a mini Legoland in the making vs just an amusement park!

Let me know your thoughts on this set. Do you love special sets as much as I do? I hope to see more sets like this in the future made just for Legoland.
