Lego Fabuland

1986 Small Lego Catalog Fabuland (picture source from:

Was packing my toys cupboard last night, and "dig up" a pack of Lego Fabuland from my childhood (my mom bought them during an overseas trip to Switzerland, price shown are in Swiss Franc). I won't say they are my childhood toys, cause i didn't really play with them. I realised there isn't much pictures on lego Fabuland (when i did a google search, it's less than 2 pages). So here are some of the sets i have.

The funny thing about lego is that adults are excited by these kids toys, similiar with Lego Minifigures and other sets (we don't really care about the stated ages for 5-12 or 7-14 years old). It's adults who are buying and collecting them. Fabuland was first introduced in 1979, to fill the gap between Dulop and the standard lego product ranges. Aim at both boys & girls. Currently there are a group of Fabuland lovers from US & UK.
