Join the weekly Classic Cattle set review discussion. Please post your opinions on the set play ability, piece selection, design, etc. Which sets earn a "Holy Cow!" and which should be put out to pasture!

This week’s set is 1078 Animal Mosaic Puzzle: Four Tame Animals.

System builders may be surprised to learn that official LEGO mosaics didn't start in 2000 with set 3443, instead they have long been a staple in the Duplo line. One great example is set 1078, released in 1987. Kids can build the 72 patterned 2x2 tiles on 4 red 6x12 Duplo plates to create horses, goats, ducks and, of course, cows. Related sets 1014, 1019 and 1079 have kids building a variety of other animals including household pets and wild jungle animals.

Those other animals are lame. Why couldn't they have done different breeds of cows instead? Cows are where its at, duh.

Mooving on,

BTW, and no joking on this one, as someone with a 2 year old who loves Duplo, puzzles and animals, I think these are great. I really wish they'd make more like these. If anyone knows a source for these that is reasonably priced, let me know.
