 LEGO Retro Camera Toy: A Nostalgic 3-In-1 Building Experience For Creative Kids

Review: "This was a fun build that looks super cute! Instructions and assembly are easy enough that you don’t get overwhelmed. The pieces fit well together and it feels nice when you hold it. I didn’t realize you can make different things when I bought it but it comes with 3 separate instruction booklets for a tv and camcorder. Perfect for the price." - Kait

Aw, had these in the early 80s. They changed a few of the fruits since then I see :) Yellow should be lemon scented, and turquoise was mango. I can’t remember what pink was but I don’t recall it being watermelon …
