Fairy Bricks limited edition set

As you may recall, we love and support Fairy Bricks here at New Elementary. They raise funds, use them to buy LEGO sets at discounted prices to make the most of , then donate the sets to children's hospitals and hospices around the world. Their latest fundraising endeavour is a limited edition kit of the Fairy Bricks logo in 3D, designed by UK Certified Professionals Bright Bricks. There's only 500 available and you can buy set FB001 now! International customers, it's probably best to contact Fairy Bricks direct at contact@fairybricks.org.


It costs £20 plus shipping. It contains 246 pieces including an exclusive numbered tile (not shown in the above picture - see the box pic below). I don't have mine yet (thanks to Huw from Brickset for the picture) but I do have a parts list, so I can tell you about some of the nice parts that come in the set. As you can tell, it's a bit of a parts pack!

The quirky, rarer parts on the end of the wand are two Clikits stars; this solution was the brainchild of Rhys at Bright Bricks. I'm pleased to be getting a White 8x16 plate; these have only appeared in seven sets since their introduction five years ago.

But the real star of this show is Medium Lavender. I wouldn't call them rare, but some are uncommon and quantities are great: 16 1x1 plates, 28 1x2 plates, 5 2x2 round tiles, 21 1x2 bricks and 18 2x4 bricks.


I'm also happy about the Earth Blue [TLG]/Dark Blue [BL] selection; 6 jumper plates, 10 2x8 plates and 4 of the 45° corner slopes.

So grab your copy now whilst stocks last!

  1. Tried to order but was denied by the system claiming seller doesn't ship to my area. Anybody want to help a fellow AFOL out?

  2. Cool set. How are the wings attached, or will I just have to buy it? And also, is it actually made by LEGO, or is it just basically a packaged MOC?

    1. No, as mentioned it was designed by Bright Bricks. The wings attach with mini ball joints

    2. O.K. I wasn't sure, because the typeface used for the number of parts and the age suggestion is exactly the same as LEGO uses.

  3. Hm... while I do need Medium Lavender bricks for a large project of mine, let's face it—I wouldn't be able to bring myself to take this lovely model apart if I bought it.

  4. Hmmm, in looking at the model, are you sure on the part count for the 2 x 2 lavender tile? Just checked on Brickset, and there is one on both of the the "top" wings, so shouldn't the count be 6 (not 5)?
