Random instruction page:

All larger Fabuland sets contained an inspirational story after the model was built:

Harry and Marjorie start to build the wind mill:

Harry gets a little help from Marjorie and in no time at all the roof elements are snapped into place:

Harry making some final adjustments on the wind mill:

Marjorie starts to assemble the delivery car:

A few more parts and the car will be complete:

The completed wind mill:

The wind mill is unique with the big wind mill blade and flour sack printed tiles. I especially like the updated versions
of Harry and Marjorie with the new style eyes and printed aprons.

Awesome review! Thanks for sharing. :thumbup: I remember this set so well. It was the first one I got with the slide, bay window and windmill pieces. I was so excited! I remember saving my allowance so I could afford it. Too bad the figures have the creepy eyeballs. This is still one of my favorite sets. What an excellent and thorough review. :sweet:

Ooh, I had this set! I remember how the white mouse girl was one of my favorite figs when I played with Fabuland as a kid. :wub:

Hi!
Does somebody know if the mouse in this set had round eyes before. Or have the mouse in the set 3704 been with new eyes?

Wow, this really brings me back! I had this set as a kid, and those two figures were among my favourites in the Fabuland theme. :wub:

3704 was never produced with the new eyes, no.

All the pictures I found of the Wind Mill mouse, she has smaller eyes with eyelashes. But my mouse has those different round eyes.
