5122 Pig Pen
« on: August 10, 2012, 15:01:21 »
I got this set a couple of months ago.  I really like the Farm Theme and all the animals, so I thought I would do a review of set  5122.

Here is the front of the box,



the side art



and the back of the box.



The contents: 




Contents of Bag 1

 
Bag 2





Bag 3



All Set Up



Besides the pigs, there is also a mole and his hole and a crow.  The tree is well constructed and provides shade for the piglets.   
I think it is a great little set and the pink pigs in set 7021 do too!  Although it may get a little too cozy at bedtime.  :lol:



The farmer is now one of my favorite klickies.  I could totally see myself pulling weeds in the back yard in his outfit.  :yup:   



My only regret is that there weren't any grooming tools enclosed.  (That was for Ras.)  :lol:
Hope you enjoyed this review.
Joe

 :lol: :lol: :lol: That bit about the grooming tools cracked me up!

A great review, Joe. :) I got this set not too long ago myself, and I definitely have to agree about the farmer. He's awesome! And the pigs of course are adorable. :love:

great, no grooming tools excuse.  :lol: Ok we just went camping on the lake and at night a 400 pound momma pig and her 2 piglest came in at 2am to raid our camp. Last years litter of 6 stayed 20 yards away. They looked just like these pigs so now I have to get them. I must have chased those pigs half dozen times as she came back for our coolers every 30 minuts. On one chase I kicked a rock or ? and exploded my pinky toe. I do not even know if it will go back together :-\ Next time I go camping in that area I will be eating pork sandwitches ;) as payment for the toe  ;D

Great review of a nice farm set Joe, thanks its on the list

Thanks for the review Joe! I really like this set, but I've given up farm collecting. Hmmm, I guess it could always work as part of a petting zoo! Do petting zoos typically have pigs? :wave:

Sometimes they have pot-bellied pigs. I'm using the little shelter that comes with this in my zoo, though, in the warthog and wild boar exhibits.

Oh! Pig Pen! Somehow I was expecting a huge clock. Thought Joe had a cold so he couldn't spell the "b" correctly!  ;D
Nice review, the pigs are, with the cows, always very welcome in knights castles (and at their table too, as ribs!)  ;)
