The LEGO Idea Book Castle Sets (My Article)

Hello all, I am not sure if many people are aware of this or not, but back in the 80s and 90s LEGO released a load of idea books aimed at helping children explore with LEGO. Included within these books were one or two instructions as well.

So to cut a long story short, I found all the old ones which focused on castle sets and complied them all together into one article on one page. Below is the link if anyone is interested in seeing a Classic Carriage, a sawmill, a forestmens blacksmiths and much more.

Cheers all

    Fun stuff, brought back memories of trying to build the stuff in the '87 Idea Book as a kid. I remember always feeling cheated when they used parts in colors I couldn't get my hands on.

    Thanks for the tip. Nice pictures! Brings back a lot of nice memories seeing those old lion & falcon knights, and the classic space theme too. The actual stuff I played with as a little kid. I did not know Lego released such ideabooks back then.
    Nice blog I 've read some of your castle reviews a while ago, good stuff, nice job!
