Having fun with the new LEGO baby

by admin on June 13, 2016

in Reviews & Comparisons

We have already discussed the #60134 LEGO City Fun in the Park – City People Pack (see: LEGO City Fun in the Park Available Now!), and as you know, the set comes with a brand new baby minifigure. The nature of babies is to make people exclaim; “Ohhh! Ahhh! How cute! How precious!” And while this baby is only a little piece of plastic, it has been getting similar reactions from LEGO fans. 🙂

LEGO Baby 1

So let’s take a closer look at this adorable little bundle of joy. First of all – just so you can appreciate how tiny the baby is – here is a comparison picture with other LEGO figures. The blue piece on the left is a LEGO micro-figure, used as a trophy, statue, or miniature version of a minifig. Next is the new baby minifigure. The bundled baby comes with the Tribal Woman from LEGO Minifigures Series 15. The next piece is a figure from the now retired LEGO Games series. And the last two are a child minifigure with short legs, and a standard LEGO minifigure.

LEGO Baby 2

As you can see, the new LEGO baby is just a tad taller than a LEGO micro-figure, and has about the same body-shape as the LEGO Games figure. However while the LEGO micro-figure and the LEGO Games figure are a single piece with no removable parts, the LEGO baby is made up of two pieces; a removable head, and a one-piece body.

LEGO Baby 3

The baby’s body is one piece; the size and height of a LEGO 1×1 brick. It can be attached to a single stud, like the LEGO Games figure. The arms and hands are not movable, however the hands have the same circumference as a standard LEGO rod, so you can attach a clip to them. The neck-post is also the same as a standard LEGO rod.

#60134 LEGO City Fun in the Park Wheelchair

The removable head is similar in shape to a standard LEGO minifigure head, but it is much smaller and has no neck section. It can be attached to a standard LEGO rod (so yeah, you can have smiling baby heads on stakes… okay, I agree… that’s too disturbing to think about). The stud on the top of the head is very tiny and smaller than a LEGO rod. So far I haven’t been able to find anything that could attach to it. However the head itself has the same circumference as the head of LEGO Games figure, so if you have one of those awesome and very rare miniature Viking helmets that came in the #3860 LEGO Games Castle Fortaan set, you can put it on the baby. Unfortunately this is the only helmet LEGO ever made for the LEGO Games figures, so no other headgear would fit the baby at this point.

As soon as new LEGO elements become available, LEGO fans immediately start experimenting with them. And the baby is no exception. In the picture above you can see daddy and baby Viking with the tiny helmet I mentioned in the previous paragraph, and daddy and baby hotdog guy with the new small hotdog piece. In the picture below, baby minifig and baby bunny are getting attacked by Slimer. All three images are by flickr member and excellent minifigs photographer Vanjey-Lego.

The LEGO baby minifigure is currently only available in the #60134 LEGO City Fun in the Park – City People Pack, but will also be included in LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 16 coming later this year (with a babysitter). And I’m sure LEGO will add it to other sets as well. If you want to get your own baby, you can find LEGO City Fun in the Park under the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.

I love the variations that people are doing with the baby. I haven’t opened out set yet, so nice to see it.

It’s a great set. Really good selection of minifigs faces, torsos and legs. Most of them are printed both the front and the back with nice designs. And yes, the baby is cute. 🙂

Disappointing that the arms don’t move, but I guess in such a small scale it would have been difficult. Great use of the new hotdog piece!

Even with all the comparison pictures it is hard to really understand how small the baby actually is without seeing it. Moving arms would not have been very practical on such a tiny figure. And yes, the hotdog baby is awesome! 😀

Really like that tiny helmet. Didn’t even know it existed! Now I will have to get some from Bricklink. It’s surprising that LEGO made a special piece like that, and only included it in one set. Are there any other unique pieces like that?

Yes, the tiny helmet is super cute. I actually have one myself, but never thought of trying it out on the baby until I saw the picture. It fits perfectly! 😀

(I’m sure there are unique pieces for many Bionicle sets and constraction figures, as well…)

Yes, those are great examples. And there are other unique pieces as well that only appear in one set. Notably several of the minifigure accessories in the LEGO Collectible Minifigure line, and some interesting or odd pieces in regular LEGO sets. Like I always liked this rock piece that only appeared in a handful of sets: http://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=30596#T=C&C=103

Pretty wild colors for a rock piece… I think I might have a bright light yellow one somewhere, although I should sort out all my old boxes…

I’m impressed as that was a piece I didn’t even know existed until you posted the link! If it was more earth toned I could do something very interesting with that for landscaping awkward spots where I need to hide the SNOT joins….

The light-yellow one actually works fairly well with tan, but yeah, I would love to see that piece in grays and earth tones too!

Another example – maybe the Greatest Of All Time – The Goat …

The goat is my favorite LEGO animal! Whenever I shop on BrickLink I check if the seller has some. 🙂

That baby piece looks pretty amazing. A possible use for it is as an actual minifigure for some brick built characters, like a little bit larger than Miniland scale.

LOL! Yeah! That’s a good idea! 😀
