LEGO is a toy you never really grow out of and the company evidently know that as they continue their run of models targeted at us big kids. This latest 1,077-piece set captures the second most influential car of the 20th century, the Mini Cooper, in all its quaint, British glory. This original era model (not the modern, BMW-owned revival) comes in classic racing green, with a removable white roof to reveal the tonal cream and grey interior complete with car radio and stick shift transmission. Elsewhere the attention to detail is impressive, with door handles and decals that all mimic the real thing, plus a trunk that pops open to reveal a tiny picnic hamper! As if we needed an excuse to start playing with LEGO all over again. Look for the Mini Cooper at LEGO retailers and online.
