LEGO babies were introduced during 2016 and these wonderful characters have subsequently become very collectable. 70847 Good Morning Sparkle Babies! comes with two exclusive baby figures and looks interesting, particularly since this set only costs £8.99 or $9.99.
Moreover, these renditions of Emmet and Lucy both include unique heads and the Everything is Awesome single cover is exclusively found here as well. For that reason, I have been excited to take a closer look at this diminutive set.
Numerous different Emmet minifigures have been produced for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part and this version wears the same orange construction uniform as many others. The worn metallic silver reflective strips look wonderful and I like the familiar reddish brown hair piece too. However, this figure includes a unique double-sided head with two cheerful expressions.
Lucy includes an exclusive smiling head as well which looks appropriate for the utopian environment. Furthermore, her black torso and legs are relatively uncommon, only appearing in three previous sets, but this minifigure lacks a separate hood. The colourful hair piece is superb though, featuring medium azure and magenta streaks that match the graffiti designs on Lucy's clothing.
Lavender 1x1 round bricks, represent smoothies, are provided for each character but my favourite of their accessories is undoubtedly the Everything is Awesome single cover! This printed element looks brilliant, displaying Lucy on the front and corresponding exactly with Emmet's poster from The LEGO Movie.
Two adorable Sparkle Babies are included, wearing teal and pink bodysuits with some metallic silver highlights. Both figures appear beautifully detailed, despite their tiny size, but such garish designs are not particularly versatile so integrating these babies into a City display might be difficult. Nevertheless, the Sparkle Babies are suitably dressed for this set and I appreciate their distinctive aesthetic.
Moreover, this set contains an exclusive Star, whose calm facial expression differs from others which are available across the range. Babies can ride on its back using a 1x1 bracket which connects to the reverse of the Star and removing the printed 2x2 tile allows the babies to stand on top, as exhibited in the images below.
The Completed Model
The minifigures and babies are probably the most appealing features of this set, although its scenery does include spectacular foliage which comprises some interesting elements. For instance, the flame yellowish orange frond is only found here while the magenta variant appears in three sets. I love how the neighbouring flower has been constructed too, using stacked 2x2 round bricks with petals.
Green slopes surround this model and a lime green 4x4 round plate is situated at its centre, with the Star nestling inside. Pressing on a dark bluish grey shovel handle launches this Star and the function works reasonably well. However, the shovel connects to a Technic brick which seems rather awkward as little attempt has been made to conceal this component.
Despite only containing 50 pieces, 70847 Good Morning Sparkle Babies! certainly offers considerable enjoyment. I am particularly impressed with the Sparkle Babies and the lovely Everything is Awesome decorated 2x2 tile. The scenery appears less appealing by comparison but does incorporate some fun elements.
The babies alone justified purchasing this set from my perspective and I am quite satisfied. Its price of £8.99 or $9.99 seems reasonable, albeit not matching the exceptional value offered by 70841 Benny's Space Squad which remains among my favourite sets of 2019.
