I fell in love with the Brick Bank (10251) when LEGO released the high resolution images back in October.

And it doesn’t disappoint in real life.  Find out why here!

  1. Superb review, Kristen! It has all the details (especially on the new parts) that I didn’t find elsewhere. Midnight purchase for me! 🙂 Happy new year…!

  2. Thanks for a great review! It will be a while, before I’ll get my copy (or two) of the set, so I really enjoyed reading it.

  3. Just finished it. Great details in this set. My only wish was that this be 100% bank without a laundry component. I guess I don’t understand why the exterior had to change on the second floor with the inside still being the bank. (BTW: I had to explain laundering money to my 8 year old.)

    • I quite like the variation that the laundromat brings. However, I think you could easily make it all bank by mirroring the left hand side of the facade.
      Mine (also an 8 y.o.) didn’t question why you would need to put money in the vault through the washing machines. Not sure if that is a good thing!

  4. Great review, very very thorough.

    I myself bought 2 copy’s with the plan being making the bank a full corner and make the laundromat a separate building on a 16×32 plate.

    I really love both parts of the build, but I can not stand a wall not going all the way to the ceiling, it drives my nuts.

  5. I buckled and bought the Brick Bank after I got Bicycle Cafe with has a Teller Machine which could be used in the Brick Bank’s setting.
