Come to find out, the set came with 3000 pieces! Oh well. Just more for sharing around and there were a few smaller sets not included, but necessary for that true castle life living feel.
It looked like a daunting task of putting it together. Good thing Jacob has capable parents. (Good luck guys-We're all counting on you.) I'm hoping Wendy does some blogging of the finished product soon. (hint hint). I'll post a link when that happens.
