Look at this set!  For a small set it has some really cool little builds.  Hang ten, Olivia!
Let's go to the beach.

Box contents

The box contains an instruction booklet, a large bag and a small bag.

Whoo hoo for the pieces!  I personally love the palm leaves, the banana, Popsicle,
brown plain minifigure heads, the plain yellow minifigure head, the flowers, the
surfboard and Olivia's torso.

Completed build

WOW!  I just love the details packed into this small set.  The little snack stand has a
pineapple, the Popsicle, the banana, a green 1x1 round plate to represent an apple,
and a orange 1x1 round plate to represent, well duh, an orange (or tangerine, or
clementine, if you prefer).  The palm tree looks great for being so small, including the
brown minifigure heads as coconuts!  What a great detail.  The beach buggy even has
storage for the surfboard, but without a steering wheel or handles, I don't think it's
going anywhere.  That's one of the few complaints I have about the build.


The other complaint I have are the green capris.  Again?  Couldn't they have at least
made them a different color?  I would have liked to see the sarong or shorts from the
41008 City Pool set, but oh well. I do love, love, love her halter top.  Such cute detail
of the wave and palm tree.

Extra pieces

We get seven extra pieces, which is always a good thing, including an extra flower.

Overall, I like it.  There is great playability in such a small set, giving it great value.
Now I want a Popsicle.
