Goodnight Moon


In the great green room

There was a telephone

And a red balloon

And a picture of

The cow jumping over the moon…


Delighting children and parents for almost 70 years “Goodnight Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown (with illustrations by Clement Hurd, published by HarperCollins) has sold more than 14 million copies.  Arguably the most popular children’s picture book of all time, both the text and the illustrations are simple and captivating.

This Lego rendition of the “great green room” features all of the items mentioned in the text of the book.  From the “comb and a brush and a bowl full of mush” to the “little toy house and the young mouse” the whole list of beloved items and characters are here.  The set is even designed for the moon to rise as it does in the book (it can be attached to the window in a series of positions).  The books on the bookcase are each individually built so they can be slid in and out of the bookcase.  With the young bunny and the old “lady” and other friends in the room and all the bits and pieces that make up the scene the play possibilities are endless.

The set contains 374 bricks and 5 custom stickers (three paintings, the socks, and the mittens).

This would be a great complement to the book for the little Lego fan, and a great literary bookend for the adult Lego collector, this set really has something for the kid in all of us!

So, if you would like to see your childhood come to Lego life, please support the project, share it on social media and follow the idea (and its creator)!
