started building this with my gf :)
Bought for my daughter and she loves it. All the little details are perfect. I’m getting her the bun shop next.
I‘ve bought this in addition to the „steamed bun shop“ which I love, too.
What I like: building up was lot of fun and acceptable challenges. The look ist really great. Part Quality is awesome.
What I don’t like:
Both Modells don’t fit together nicely.
The Color of the bamboo isn’t good.
I would prefer getting printed parts instead of stickers.
You're many steps was easier to put the sticker on before attaching it to the model, like the main shop sign.
Really impressive design, super detailed and high quality. Not easy to build, but instructions are good.
I would have put all that stuff on the back wall much earlier, if I had read ahead.
My first build was the bun-ship.
I eagerly await the next one by Mr Sandbox.
As I said in the title building this set was really fun. Bricks are really high quality and I haven't encounter any issues with broken or missing parts.
Weirdly the steamed bun shop by this designer is one of my favourite peices of "Art" I own. I'm not sure why. But something about looking at it chills my brain and warms my soul.
While this set doesn't have the full "magic" of the previous set it is still above and beyond what I had expected. A lot of interesting building techniques, and improved structural integrity.
I have it displayed next to the steamed bun shop, and they are both the things that spark the most interest from visitors, even when compared to my other "brick based" sets.
For the price it's an absolute steal and I would recommend it wholeheartedly. Please do more in this series.
