LEGO Creator VW Camper Van

Product information

This authentic camper van is a replica of the classic Volkswagen T1 Camper Van from 1962. On the outside, the terrific detailing includes a 'V' shape three-way colour split at the front, rounded roof and window frames, opening 'splittie' safari windshield, opening doors, iconic pop up roof with textile curtain surround, roof rack, rear side air intake vents and lots more.
The interior detailing is equally impressive, from the authentic VW air-cooled flat four cylinder 'boxer' engine, front cabin bench seat, gear stick, angled dashboard and iconic spherical speedometer; to custom LEGO features like folding rear bench seat, folding dinette table, closet with mirror and even a painting.
The red coloured LEGO camper van is exclusive to John Lewis department stores.

Editors Notes

The company that was destined to become LEGO started life as being a small workshop that produced wooden toys, run by Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1932. The name ‘LEGO’ was adopted in 1934, coming from the Danish phrase ‘leg godt’, which means ‘play well’. It wasn’t until 1947 that they started producing plastic toys, with the first version of the now infamous interlocking bricks coming in 1949.
They weren’t quite the bricks that people are used to nowadays, being made from a different material and having a slightly different locking system. It was actually Christiansen’s son Godtfred Kirk that saw the potential for the bricks to become a tool for creative play and in 1958, the modern brick design was born. From this date, despite variation in the design and purpose of individual pieces over the years, each remains compatible in some way with previous pieces. So you could have a LEGO set from 1958 and it would still be completely compatible with a modern set.
Since the 1960, thousands of sets have been released covering everything from Aliens to the Wild West. The only area that the company has never tackled directly is military-themed sets, because Ole Kirk set a policy that they must never make war seem like child’s play. The largest ever LEGO set to date is a scale-model of the Taj Mahal, which was made out of 5922 pieces.
The LEGO Group's motto is ‘det bedste er ikke for godt’, which roughly translates to "only the best is the best". Ole Kirk Christiansen came up with this phrase to encourage workers to always produce the highest quality toys possible.
Nowadays, LEGO makes a vast range of toys for all ages, as well as teaching materials for children, which are distributed in over 130 countries. The company has approximately 10,000 employees and is the world's third largest manufacturer of play materials.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heres hoping Bought as a present for next year as they appear very popular so unable to give a review, it looks superb though. 11 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Fun and interesting I am 65 ,this is the first time I have built anything with Lego. It was interesting and challenging to build the camper van. A couple of bits where missing, Lego have an excellent customer service and a freephone number to order any missing parts. I am wondering what to buy next. 17 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not just a Toy!! Lego we all remember this from our childhood. Well this one is for Adults. Got it as a xmas present and sat there for 10 hours solid building it. Everyone loves is. Not cheap but worth it. 03 February 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by brilliant Looks great and really good fun to build. Highly recommend for any age group 14 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great present Bought this for my 12 yr old son and he loves it and despite it saying that it was suitable for 16+ he managed to build it in a few hours. Pricey but great for anyone who loves lego. 03 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Lego Kit A real top class Lego Creator item. Being a 16+ item then all the 1332 pieces come together in a set of bags rather than being numbered in groups for stages of the build. This makes it challenging even for an experienced Lego builder, but entirely worthwhile as the end product is full of the fine detail and nice touches that continue to make Lego great. Has been much admired by friends and family. 02 January 2014
