Next up on my reviews of the LEGO Super Mario sets, we have Peach’s Garden Balloon Ride (71419) which has 453 pieces and retails for $49.99.
This set is one of larger sets in the wave in terms of pieces and playability. There really isn’t a starting area but I guess it could the lawn area where Pink Yoshi is at. It is brick-built like every other Yoshi and there’s a scanner tile to connect to.
At the T-intersection, there’s a fountain which you can knock over to reveal a Coin Block.
To the right, there’s a cloudy area where Pom Pom is stationed at. Pom Pom is also brick-built and she has some printed pieces for her face and body. Her accessory is not accurate as she has a boomerang instead of her usual ribbon shuriken.
The left of the fountain is a little garden with a turnip sitting on top that you can pop off by hopping on the ramp. To the right of that is a path to a Beanstalk that goes up to the clouds.
The last part of the course is Blue Toad’s house. There’s not much here but there is a Super Star Block in the chimney smoke. As for Blue Toad, most of his parts are printed including the cap, torso, and his face with a winking expression.
Lastly we have the pink hot air balloon that fairly large and well made. The front part of the balloon is able to open up to reveal a lava bubble hidden inside.
Overall, the LEGO Super Mario Peach’s Garden Balloon Ride (71419) is actually a pretty good set with a lot of playability. The hot air balloon is a really nice model that could be incorporated into other layouts. Although Peach is not included, there’s still a good number of characters that are in the set. The price is on point as there are a number of large pieces as well as printed parts.
