What do you get when you combine a Lego fanatic, a train enthusiast, and an expectant father? None other than the LEGO Gender Reveal Caboose. Since the time of receiving my first Lego train set at age 7, I knew both Legos and trains would be two things I would never outgrow. Fast forward 22 years, and now my wonderful wife and I anticipate the arrival of our first child. With several different options of “Gender Reveals” out there today, we wanted to do something that was original and represented who were are and what we like. Two of those things being Legos and trains.
This caboose was designed to be a simple, easy to build, yet classic style caboose with the cupola being in the center (as opposed to being off-centered) to give it a very clean and symmetrical look. The total amount of pieces needed to construct the completed caboose is right around 100 pieces. The overall design is very simple, but it was made to serve a purpose of more than just being a caboose at the end of the train. As a LEGO set, it would contain enough pieces to construct one completed caboose, but would include both blue and pink pieces that are interchangeable. There would be 44 pieces of each color (blue and pink) to make the caboose either color.
