I’d like to own a couple of the rock panel in green.

I still really dig looking through Belville instructions and seeing the figures building each step. Very fun.

At least the horse isn't trying to assemble the tent, this time around.

I love that little puppy piece, though.

TBH the horse is far better looking than the ones lego makes nowadays, even if it is large scale and juniorized. Same goes for the dog.

Okay, so as a kid, I would have probably found those instructions a bit confusing. https://www.lego.com/biassets/bi/4108417.pdf The image quality is not great, and I feel I'd be looking for one piece for that campfire instead of four. But you know, I'm 20 years older than I was in 1997, and I don't think a three year old would 100% be able to make it without some assistance.

That's a pretty interesting tent!

I often wonder if my sister would have ever got more Lego sets had Friends instead of Belville was running at the time. She got one Belville trip on a vacation were we stopped at Legoland; built it once, then lost interest almost immediately. A few years later I inherited the pieces as she didn't care anymore.

In the present day, almost ALL of my younger cousins play with Lego regardless of gender. The girls got hooked on Friends, the boys on Star Wars; and when they play together they create bizarre mashups (The Star Wars-Friends Rainbow Warrior Fort is my best word to describe it).

My point is though, all of them love Lego. When I was growing up it felt Lego was 'a boy thing' with me just knowing one girl who had Lego as a kid. Now everyone has it.
