The latest set to be approved and released as part of LEGO’s Ideas scheme, Winnie the Pooh is based on the design of Ben Alder. It features an iconic scene from the Disney cartoon, showing Pooh’s house carved into a huge tree. It comes with the five lovable Pooh characters: Rabbit, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and, of course, Pooh himself.
The house packs in a lot of detail, such as a bed, storage for honey pots (of course), a table and more. Comprising a total of 1,265 pieces, it’s a fairly sizeable set and captures the magic of the classic franchise rather well. We particularly love the look of the set from the outside; the tree is dotted with beehives, there’s some excellent detailing on the tree trunk, and the windows and roof of Pooh’s house captures the quaint ramshackle look perfectly.
