This beautifully designed classic Castle Medieval Market Village from Lego is an authentic looking set full of accessories, animals, shops and carts and much more.
You actually get a real feel for what a real medieval market village would have been like, based on this set, because it has been very well thought out and has many nice features and touches.
As well as building the set, both you and your kids will have a lot of fun playing with the finished piece and there is a lot of scope for acting out scenes and play-acting.
If you are an avid Lego set collector, then you will already be aware of how stunning these finished pieces look and the amazing attention to detail that comes with each set, whether it is the Lego Create Cafe Corner, the Grand Emporium, the Lego Creator Beach House or the other Lego City & Creator sets that are available.
With the Medieval Market Village, you will get:
- 8 minifigures: Blacksmith, 2 soldiers, 2 male peasants, 2 female peasants and a boy minifigure
- 2 complete buildings with detailed interiors
- a blacksmith’s shop with waterwheel-driven hammer
- a food stand
- cows, chicken, rooster, duck
- baskets of fish, apples and flowers
Not only that but the Market Village features many authentic touches, especially in the interiors such as fireplaces, dressing tables, working doors, pictures, windows and more.
Although this set already comes with lots of minifigures and accessories, you can always get more by buying the Lego Community Miniature Set which comes with 256 more characters and extras such as food and animals. (Although the laptop and backpack accessories might seem from the wrong era)!
The waterwheel on the blacksmiths shop actually drives a hammer on the inside and this in turn hits a sword on a forge! In addition, the houses can be displayed open or closed.
Two Buildings In This Medieval Market Village
This set actually comes with 2 classically designed buildings. There is one yellow building which houses the stables and the blacksmith’s shop as well as his home upstairs.
The other building is blue and is a very classical-looking European styled building with a cozy tavern on the first floor and an equally warm and welcoming bedroom on the topmost floor.
Note: The manufacturer’s recommended age for this Lego set is from 12 to 20 years. This set has a lot of Lego pieces (1,601) and some of them are very small.
If there is one negative aspect to this set it was that the Lego bags were not numbered, which made it a little more difficult sifting through trying to find the pieces you needed. However, some people actually liked this extra element of difficulty!
Whether you want to buy this for yourself or for another Lego fan, whether you want to build and play with it today or keep this as a collectible in years to come, one thing is for sure: this is a beautifully designed Lego set, rich with intricate detail and full of authentic touches and one of the best sets Lego has ever made.
