“'I wish we could go THERE!'

The tree started to spin.  It spun faster and faster!

Then everything was still.  Absolutely still."

 

The Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne has sold more than 70 million copies in the US since the first book was published in 1992 (coming up on its 25th anniversary!).  Jack and Annie discover a magic tree house in the woods near their home in Frog Creek, Pennsylvania and find that it can take them through time and around the world.  Each book in the series is set in a different era and locale and allows the characters (and the young readers) to learn while experiencing these amazing adventures.  The target age range for the books is a great match with the kid Lego market (I should know since my two kids are obsessed with both Legos and Magic Tree House)!

The main set piece in this project is the Magic Tree House itself.  The tree spins on its base (this is how the magic works!) and the house itself can be lifted out of the tree.  The roof is removable, and the house opens for ease of play (the “M” on the floor of the house is in the books and is a clue to Morgan’s identity before Jack and Annie meet her).  Included in the set are minifgures for brother and sister Jack and Annie, and their new friend Morgan Le Fay who sets them off on their adventures.

I am also including in this project the vignette set based on the first book in the series, “Dinosaurs Before Dark.”  As each book takes us to a new adventure these vignette sets will recreate the locale and the adventure that Jack and Annie experienced on their travels.  The vignettes are individual builds, but slide up to the base for the tree house and become part of the scene.  With over 50 books in the series the number of possible vignette sets (each sold separately!) is huge.  I will be updating the project with additional vignette sets based on further books in the series as the project progresses.

If you would like to see this set in stores, be sure to support it, follow it, and share it online!

Thanks for checking it out and for your support!
