Lego Blyton: The Magic Faraway Tree and The Wishing Chair


During lockdown (the first one if you’re in England, the only one so far if you’re in Scotland) I did some Blyton-themed Lego builds. I’ve already shared Five On a Treasure Island, Five On a Hike Together and an entirely imagined Secret Seven scene involving pirates.

Now it’s time for The Magic Faraway Tree and The Wishing Chair. Please don’t expect too much, here!


The Magic Faraway Tree

I had to take apart my Harry Potter Aragog’s Lair set for this, and that formed the top of the Faraway Tree peeking out of the sky between some clouds.

The tree top provides the landing spot for the various worlds that come by. The first of these was the Land of Presents.

Then the Land of Birthdays.

This land comes with a table set for a party, with a birthday cake in the middle.

After that the dreaded Land of Dame Slap arrives. Dame Slap is at her blackboard ready to instruct (and punish) any pupils who dare enter her classroom.

As you can see in the close ups she has a cane (actually a wand) in her hand, ready to point at her maths word and the map, or for a bit of corporal punishment. She is also wearing a pirate outfit as I have an extremely limited Lego wardrobe.


The Wishing Chair

This was admittedly a bit of an after-thought, after I found some wing-shaped pieces.

If you look closely you’ll notice that there are only three wings as that’s all I could find… so it might be a bit wobbly as it flies!


And that is the end of my Enid Blyton adventures in Lego. I’d love for them to make some real sets, but I’m not holding my breath.
