LEGO Unveils LEGO IDEAS Pirates of Barracuda Bay - 90's Kids Rejoice

What does a pirate say when he steps on a LEGO?

Okay, that was terrible.

Kids at home? I’ve got lots of ideas to keep LEGO builders’ boredom at bay!

Coming April 1, no joke, you can get the new LEGO Ideas 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay set that includes a multi-level highly detailed shipwrecked pirate ship that houses eight merry characters of mini-figures including the iconic Captain Redbeard, Lady Anchor, Robin Loot and the twins, Port and Starboard, as well as three other pirates and two skeleton figures and various animals to discover on the island. This set is impressive - boasting 2,545 LEGO bricks to create a shipwrecked pirate ship and can be built in different ways to create different scenarios. 

LEGO fans may see that this LEGO Ideas set is inspired by the various LEGO sets from the days of yore - 1989 - 1997, including the 1989 Black Sea Barracuda pirate ship model. One I remember from my childhood is that shark from the Battle Cove set! This is such a great LEGO Ideas set. There are various scenes to explore and give LEGO brick fans opportunities for many storylines! Search for buried treasure by separating the included island to create larger-scale scenes to enrich your story. Keep it all together for an epic display or just play!

21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay retails for $199.99, and you can order it online at LEGO.com for free and fast delivery! The 21322 LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay set is pricey, but worth it as it has 2,545 pieces and lots of play value, plus the build time with family is priceless!

Also, don’t forget to enter the LEGOLAND New York Resort contest! Just click Offers & Sale on LEGO.com, and scroll down to find out how to enter.

Other LEGO sets, you can consider are the new Minions: Rise of Gru LEGO sets coming out April 27, 2020 - be on the lookout for those. Plus, the Trolls: World Tour sets are in-stores now, and they are a lot of fun to build. Check out my YouTube video featuring the LEGO booth tour of the latest sets coming out through summer at New York Toy Fair 2020!

When you're going on your Target run for food, swing by the LEGO section and check out the bag builds that are just $4.99-$5.99 each. I picked up a Train set bag (perfect alternative to the anniversary set), Trolls set featuring Poppy, Easter Bunny, and a Spider-man set. These are great Easter basket fillers, plus easy boredom busters!

I made sure to stock up on some sets for New York’s PAUSE order to help flatten the curve. I added on the new Brickheadz sets including Donald Duck, and the Goofy and Pluto sets. Since I spent over a certain amount, I got the 40th Anniversary Train set for free. 

What do you think of the new set? Do you think it pays homage to all of our favorite sets from the 90s? I am arrrrrgh——stoked!
