Castles, Palaces and Belville figures for my daughter
About this creation
I know that there are many on this site that have pure disdain for Belville figures but my daughter simply LOVES them (for obvious reasons to those who have young daughters who are into LEGO). I am displaying this mainly for her so she can show her Belville palace, and a few of her Belville figures, to her friends.
This Pink, White and Gold palace is being built in "Belville Figure" scale for my daughter to play with. She prefers the Belville LEGO figures to the traditional sized LEGO mini-figs because of the accessories that are available and the flexibility of the figures. Estimated completion is: post 2007/2008 holiday season
UPDATE: December 2007
Although the Palace has not been comnpleted yet, I managed to procure a variety of Belville characters, animals and accessories for my daughter from a number of Bricklink sites here and abroad.
OK ... Daddy did a bit of goofing around with the Belville knights for this pic (*heeee*)
If it increases your daughter's enthusiasm for Lego, then it is definitely acceptable. I was lucky in that my daughter saw right away that the scale would not match what the rest of us were using. Let's hear it for more Lego families, and more girls playing with Lego. Lee.
