3798 Hannah Hippopotamus on Picnic meets 3721 Clive Crocodile on his Skateboard.

Hannah Hippo was traveling along in her Wind-Up Caravan when she came across a small patch of grass.

Posted Image
"This looks like the perfect spot for a picnic." Hannah exclaimed.

Posted Image
So she climbed out of her caravan and started to set up for the picnic.

Posted Image
"I'll put these two white 1 x 4 x 2 fences down here..."

Posted Image
Hannah went back to the caravan and started to unload some more pieces for her picnic.

Posted Image
"I'll just lay these two Red 2 x 4 bricks here for the table base..." Hannah muttered.

Posted Image
"... and this gorgeous 2 x 6 x 5 White Arch here..."

Posted Image
"OH NO, OH NO, OH NO!" Hannah exclaimed loudly.  

Posted Image
Whoosh! Clive Crocodile sailed onto the scene.

Posted Image
"What seems to be the problem here, my sweet Hippopotamus?" Clive said smoothly.

Posted Image
"I've looked everywhere and I can't seem to locate my second 2 x 6 x 5 White Arch, and my picnic will be ruined." Hannah declared sadly.

Posted Image
"Fret not sweet Hannah, I know just the thing to fix this problem of yours." So Hannah and Clive scooted off on the skateboard, towards Stage Left.

Posted Image
"This is just the place we need! I passed on my way here, and apparently all the pieces are just lying here, we can use whatever we want." Clive told Hannah excitedly.

Posted Image
"Hmmm, now let's see. We'll take some of this."

Posted Image
"And a couple of these too?" Asked Hannah. "Oh definitely!" said Clive.

Posted Image
Soon Hannah was erecting the other White Arch.

Posted Image
"I found these two Yellow 2 x 6 plates, where shall I put them?" asked Clive. "Oh, they would look fabulous on top of the White Arches." replied Hannah.

Posted Image
Hannah went back to the Caravan and got out a White 4 x 6 plate. "This will do nicely as the table top." said Hannah.  

Posted Image
Meanwhile Clive was getting two Red Fabuland Bench Seats out of the Wind-Up Caravan.

Posted Image
"This is starting to look great!" Hannah exclaimed as she carried 1 of 2 Blue coffee cups and a Red Flask with handle to the table.

Posted Image
"Thank You Clive, for your help. Would you like to join me for a picnic now?" Hannah asked politely.

Posted Image
"I thought you'd never asked." Clive chuckled.

Posted Image
The End!

Nice little story  :thumbup:
Is this a review, or rather just a showing of the set with a story?

Rather just showing off the set with a story.

But I made it as review like as I could. I have a missing piece (Bet you can't guess which one :tongue:) so I could not do a complete review.

As the sub-heading says it is just a Set Display (Displaying the set) / MOC (the Wind-Up Caravan is my MOC)

Cheers,
IZ

I cannot, as this is the only set 'I' (being Toodles, well actually his sister) have!  :grin:

So, this shall be the only one for now. But anyone else can feel free to copy the format and do their own. I want to see more sets too.

Nice caravan. The white sliding door that you've used in your creation, what set was that actually from? I have a pair of them and the pieces they slide in but absolutely no idea what set it was once from and it's driving me crazy.

Are the fabuland minifig heads compatible with the regular bodies? I have plans for these sweet, adorable pre-school figures for some post-school ideas that i have :devil:
