Winter Explorer [ReBuild] of Olivia's Exploration Car 41116

Utilizing every piece from only set 41116, I built this "alternate" or Re-Build of it.
Taking her skyward-gazing equipment mobile, Olivia is energized to head North in search of a good view of the Aurora Borealis.  Her trusty robot, Aura, is along for scouting and watching the equipment trailer.  The trailer houses a rotating platform with collapsible stand for holding a telescope and binoculars.

Her vehicle is a modified "snow cat" of sorts, with ski boots up front.  It's solar-powered, so she doesn't
have to worry about gas.  She uses her sticky-notes with map coordinates to navigate toward a good spot.

A rack ladder gives her rooftop access.  Aura attaches herself to a bar on the rear to ride high.  
When she's not wheeling around, she can maintain a stationary position using her magnifying glass.

Of course it's getting chilly -- Olivia needs to ask for a "I love Science" sweater from the designers!

Jungle Discovery!

Jungle Discovery
My creation for the Friends Bricks "Pop of Pink" building challenge ~ Jungle Discovery! During Olivia's daily check at one of the research huts, she notices a new species of plant. So do a few of the jungle creatures :-)

Rabbit's Secret

Now we know where Rabbit goes after Mia performs her magic ~ an imaginary adventuring world, while the Show goes on ...

Mia has just leaned into the secret compartment looking for her Rabbit after the show -- she had no idea what she'd find!

Building an *Alternate* playset with my Mia's Magic Trick bricks (using every brick) I wanted to imagine where Rabbit goes when she 'disappears' into the 'magic' compartment. Here is a photo to better see TLG's design of the 'magic' involved.

This set contains instructions to build some nice functions: the rotating 'curtains' and hidden trap door & compartment are super fun! This set should be a hit with any girl, or any LEGO fan!

My creation is intended to illustrate a certain imaginary character (who Rabbit obviously adores), along with a Tea Cart with tea & cakes :-)
