Lego Haunted House

With the recent retirement of the Lego monster Fighters Series (probably making way for the Lego Movie sets) I decided to get the Haunted House set 10228 before it also disappeared.

We have in our living room the Addams Family Pinball Machine and I wanted my own Addams Family mansion, which this set is!

I love the main colour of the set which reminds me of Pacers sweets; these were like Starbust aka Opal Fruits but green & white striped and minty.  I think they were removed from production as the green wasn't a 'healthy' food colouring.  Haunted House colour is therefore....

...Childhood Memory Illegal Green!

Cousin It
The next nice thing about this set is the mini accessories; a top hat, ship in a bottle, heart in a jar etc.  With one of the two 'falling over dead shrubs' the top hat makes an excellent Cousin It!

Hinge opening

This set is 2064 pieces of Lego happiness.  It's cleverly built with a sturdy hinge opening, wonky windows, gargoyle like heads, a folding ladder, glow in the dark ghosts, bump in the night furniture and some great kreepy/kooky minifigures.

They’re creepy and they're kooky
Mysterious and spooky
They’re all together ooky
The Addams Family

Their house is a museum
When people come to see 'em
They really are a screa-um
The Addams Family.



So get a witch's shawl on
A broomstick you can crawl on
We're gonna pay a call on
The Addams Family
