WELCOME TO THE CHOCOLATE ROOM
Where everything in this room is eatable, even I'M eatable! But that is called "cannibalism," my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.
Escape into the world of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! A classical book turned into a magnificent film!
This is based on the 2005 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory directed by Tim Burton. A whimsical and magical take on the classic with a burst of colour and surprise! and we all know the best kind of prize is a SUR-prise!
THE CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN
See the most important part that mixes the chocolate like no other factory
SEE THE OOMPA LOOMPAS
They're small, sing in rhymes and are always there to help Willy Wonka on his grand tour of the Factory. If you teach high geography you'll know all about where they come from!
TO PLAY OR DISPLAY (Why not both?)
When I design a set I always consider the playability of the set. If you can reenact the scene from the figures and scenery given to you, then you're already on to a winner.
On the other hand, I always try to stress the importance of design and how well it can be displayed. This set has designed to take the best parts of the iconic scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and make it recognisable instantly - Plus, this would be the first Lego chocolate fountain!
Minus the Minifigures, this set has been designed with all existing parts and colours too!
Some people will know me for designing sets like The Book Nook and The garden retreat which focus on the more relaxed side of me. This took inspiration from the more whimsical side!
I've been a fan of Lego for as long as I can remember and when I was a kid I could only dream of designing Lego the way I do now.
This set is not only the most colourful set I've designed, but also was a taste of my childhood and a nod to the young me who would have loved to have made this in my bedroom with all my loose Lego Pieces!
