Build Report: 41061 Jasmine's Exotic Palace

In today's build report we are taking a look at a set from the Disney Princesses range, and one I bought for a variety of reasons.

First their is Jasmine, who has already been incorporated in my pirate town, and second there are the printed pieces of the carpet, again already re-used into Quinnsville.

Opening the set, we get two bags of parts, two booklets and a sticker sheet which I didn`t use in this build, as the set was bought for the parts actually.

Figure wise we get the awesome Jasmine minidoll and the little tiger companion.

And the first part of the build is actually something for the little tiger, as we are putting together his feeding spot, starting on a tan 4x4 plate.


The palmtree to provide shade is nicely done, using brown cone elements and a torch at the top to hold the palmleaves.


Next, we move on to the magical flying carpet, also starting around a 4x4 plate.

I just adore these printed elements, and they where one of the motivations to have this set.

Clipped elements are used to represent the fraying on the carpet, which hold space for both the tiger and for Jasmine to ride on it.




The third mini build in the set is a simple pedestal to place the magical lamp on, nothing fancy about this. 


Now the set is basically a collection of small builds and a palace facade, and the next little build is a potions cabinet.


Those "spickled" transparent cones where a great suprise for me, I hadn`t paid attention to them on the box, but it made me watch this set if it ever came into clearance to stock it up and get a lot of these for my mocs that way.  Unfortunatly, it never did around here...

Brown telescopes are used for closet frames as we use pink and purple slopes to make the overhang.


Another small build, the fountain is remarkable for one thing: the spickled flame at the top to represent the water.



And believe it or not, we then move on to the actual palace!  It is based around two tan 8x8 plates, so not much `palace` about it in the end, which is to be expected as we used about half the set on all the previous minibuilds.


Large white curved panels serve as the sides for the main wall.

Using pastelpink and the gorgeous "caramel" arches, the doorway was assembled.

This is then plated up and round plates are put on it to place the balcony.


That balcony is also filled with very intresting elements, all in golden colour.  The large "quarter domes" for example are another nice piece in this set.

Once the railing and the roof is done, the outer facade is ready.


For the interior, we build some very simple furniture elements.


As we add some small details like flames to the exterior, and golden twirlies, the palace has been raised.

Like always, nice stack of parts are left over:

And the full set completed:

Okay, so this isn`t really a palace, but more a minidoll playset, which I`m totally okay with.  I loved the set for all the great parts in it - the printed carpet ends, the golden pieces, all those speckled transparant elements, and to great figures - combined with a nice heap of tan and browns.  This is what for me as more a moc`cer then a set collector makes this a great buy set!
