As part of the Lego City theme, Lego City Corner is a rare set in that it is not part of the usual Police, Fire or other more “dramatic rescue” sub-themes in Lego City.
Rather, the set represents a slice of city or town life that kids would pass on their way to school or visit with their parents on the weekend.
The areas in the set include a pizza shop, a bike & skate repair and sales shop, a yellow bus and a bus stop.
As a Lego fan from way-back it reminds me of the sets I used to play with as a child and a set I highly recommend for other parents.

Lego City Corner – A Closer Look
The Lego City Corner set came out in 2009 but is still readily available in retail stores for the original selling price (or less) in 2011.
And this is good news because it is truly a magical set. As I mentioned earlier, I played with similar town-oriented sets when I was a child, and I can’t mention enough the amount of play a child can get out of this set.
Just at a glance the set comes with a pizzeria, bike & skate shop, bus and a bus stop – all in a set that has under 500 pieces!
Kids love to role play with toys that are familiar to them and also represent places they can’t necessarily visit without adult supervision. They see shops and buses and the like when they are out with their parents. When they come home, they invariably want to play at being “grown up”
The Lego City Corner set is a wonderful way for kids to role play situations they see around them every day, and so make sense of their place in the world.
I would say the only thing that would make this set just perfect (or more perfect?) is a road baseplate.

Where To Purchase
At The Brick Life we recommend purchasing Lego from Amazon for peace of mind. Having been cheated out of my money on ebay purchases and with Paypal over the last year I feel it is no longer a reliable place to buy Lego. After dealing with both ebay and Amazon for the last 5 years I feel more comfortable with spending my money with Amazon.
Disclaimer – If you purchase through our links The Brick Life will earn a small commission but this does not affect our decision to support Amazon as we can also earn through ebay links as well-we simply choose not to support ebay at this point.
