Fabulous

This was my 40th birthday present, and I’m now obsessed with all things Lego! I had such a blast piecing it together and watching it come to life. Love that you can press the keys etc

The Lego Typewriter: Pros & Cons

Lego Ideas set 21327 (a.k.a Lego Ideas Typewriter) has just been completed. The authentic clicking sounds, ribbon, paper roller, and spacebar mechanism add to the surreal effect of sitting in a wood cottage typing away at a typewriter. However, some features that weren't added could've made just that little more real. For starters, the spacebar did not work and the lever had to be flicked up manually. Moreover, the lever to change the colour of the ink ribbon was not connected to the ribbon system. And the paper roller did not have enough mobility to type up to the end of the 'Billund, Denmark, July, 2021' part and not as forwards as the 'Dear Lego Friend,' part. The paper roller was also hard to load and a more lever mechanism would allow for smoother operation and a more realistic approach. However the authenticity, careful attention to detail, proper steps, and cool pieces, make it a 4/5 star product.

Enjoyed it

This was a great lockdown project. The final product looks amazing and I’m really pleased with it. The front bar is a little fragile though so need to be careful and not move to often. For those who like the look of vintage typewriters, I’d definitely recommend.
