Xingbao Home Furnishings - The Bathroom XB01401-C Set Review

Hey there!  Welcome back to Its-Not-Lego.blogspot.com.   Today I'll be reviewing the third set from the Xingbao Home furnishings brick series, which is XB01401-C, the Bathroom diorama.


There are six sets in the Home Furnishings series, and I've already looked at XB01401-A The Study, and XB01401-B the Bedroom.  You can find those reviews by clicking on the Xingbao label on the sidebar.


Here's everything you get, about 6 or 7 bags of parts and an instruction page.  The first thing you notice is that there are a lot of pale green parts.  This colour isn't that common in the Lego world.

 Let's start building!  The baseplates consist of two dark gray 12x6 stud plates.   The flooring will be this light green tile.  The translucent bricks will be the water for the bathtub.

 Looks like one of the walls will be white and the other will be green.

 Completed the bathtub. There's a railing on the end for the handheld shower head.

 Inside the future shower stall is another shower head.

There's a bunch of bottles on either side of the bathtub faucet.  I think the sink design could be better.

In this picture, we're starting to build up the shower walls.  You can see the towel bar installed on the tub wall and a hair brush accessory too.  I tried to put the minifigure inside the shower and it was a tight squeeze, because of the middle protrusions.

The shower stall gets a door and there's a window grill inside the shower.  I would guess the green slats are for ventilation.


In this picture, we have added a fan and a new toilet.

The final pieces are put in place.  They include a mirror over the sink and some wall mounted light fixtures.  As you can see in the picture, that mirror is way too high to be of any use to the girl mini figure that comes with this set.

This is the bathtub and shower wall as seen from behind. The green bricks are sand green I think.

And this is the wall behind the sink and toilet, rear view.

 The bathroom set comes with a few extra accessories, including a small pink pail, a smaller green basket, some large lavender bowls and a blue push broom.  That's the first time I've seen it in this colour.

As with the other Home Furnishing sets, you get a small bag of spare parts.

In closing,  the Bathroom set has quite a bit of detail, in fact I think it has too much going on in such a small space.  This is a full four piece bath with shower, tub, sink and toilet.  If I had to change anything, I'd redesign the sink and lower the mirror. And get rid of the wall lighting and the vents behind the tub.  Let me know what other changes could be made in the comments section.

Thanks for looking and see you next time!
