LEGO 70823 Review

If you are looking for a good beginner set, one where your kid can do it alone, or with minimal help from an adult, this is a good starting place.  

There are a lot of smaller pieces, but nothing too complicated in the build. There are a few Technics pieces but nothing hard or wierd in the connections. I’d say the hardest part of this build is putting the tires on the rims.

If you didn’t think there was anything sillier than a double decker couch (from the first LEGO Movie), you are in for a surprise.  Introducing the thricycle!  Imagine a unicicyle, with 3 wheels and you know what I’m talking about.

The thricycle has 3 rubber tires, fold out stabilizers control levers.  There is also a little gas station to service the machine.

The Gas station is a clever little build that uses a bull whip as a gas pump hose.  There is also a little lever that can throw a tire rim if you do it just right.

The Thricycle is everything you would expect it to be.  Yellow.  Tall.  3-wheeled.  And atop it all is a place for a minifig, and of course plant storage.  The machine stands on it’s own, and all 3 wheels spin when moving it along a road.

LEGO 70823 Release Date

This set was released  in December of 2018 on the Day after Christmas. First I went to a nearby Target to get the set, but they didn’t have any on the shelves, and they said they wouldn’t be getting any until the first week in January. So instead, I went to my local LEGO store at the mall and found lots of sets on the shelf, and I bought it.
