The model, commissioned by the LEGO Certified Store, was designed and built by Peter Furstenberg, a South African adult fan of LEGO. The model contains roughly 13750 pieces and celebrates one of Cape Town’s most iconic regions, the Bo-Kaap, characterised by its colourful houses around the district. The model contains an artist’s impression of 5 iconic houses in Wale Street, a block away from the Bo-Kaap Museum. The houses were chosen for their vibrancy and colour, capturing the colourful essence of the region.
This week we talk to Bryony Poulter, the owner of Kiddiwinks and an avid AFOL. Bryony takes us back more than 40 years in LEGO history and how she grew up with a few special sets around the house.
