Animal Crossing New Horizons was the comfort game of many stuck at home amid the lockdowns enforced by the COVID-19 pandemic back in early 2020.

We now have this beloved Nintendo franchise which started in 2001 in LEGO form. Let’s take a look at the biggest set from this wave, the 77050 Nook’s Cranny and Rosie’s House

Box experience


Box Contents

7 packs of elements, 2 instruction booklets and 2 loose plates are in the box. This allows for a tandem build for each building if you so prefer.

Some of the printed parts in this set include the KK. Bubblegum album cover, fish bait,seeds, a DIY recipe card, two loose bell coins, a bells bag, Nook’s Cranny sign, Nook’s Cranny notice board and their drop-off box for overnight sales.

The Build

The front of Nook’s Cranny is a pretty faithful recreation of it’s fully upgraded appearance in AC:New Horizons. The front facade has all the main things going on such as the drop off box, notice board, display windows, the awning and streamers too.
They even managed to squeeze in the potted flower too although it’s moved to the side. The shop logo’s lettering are probably omitted as it differs depending on the language you’re on for the game. (Ed: We played over 700 hours of AC:NH and didn’t know that before this!)

As the physical world does not have the type of space bending capabilities as the gaming world of the TARDIS, space is a pretty limited commodity but they did manage to squuze in a display space for the goods (with the blue/white tiled floor), a cashier counter, a mint green cupboard with DIY’s, fish bait and seeds along with a small barrel with a broom and a shovel (no space for a fishing rod though, maybe a missed opportunity to introduce a brown version!)

As the Nook’s Cranny, we see a pretty faithful representation of Rosie’s house, although the scale has been changed somewhat from the game version, likely in order to fit in more things into the interior. A cute plume of smoke from the chimney of the house let’s you know that Rosie’s at home and not out and about!

The interior is tightly packed but there is space for you to rearrange the furniture (not something doable in game if you are not in DLC island!) They also included swappable windows which you can utilize at the front and side of the house.

The white street lamp was a pretty hot trading item to get back in the day.

We have a small gripe on the build though. A sliver of the lavender interior can be seen peeking under the front of the house. Could a small 1×2 green element with press on flowers been used to cover this or is this an easter egg that we simply aren’t aware of?

All buildings sit on the bases first introduced in the Super Mario sets to allow for extensions. Two modules are included for customizations, one featuring an orange tree and surrounding foliage, the other features a rest area for Rosie and her mate!
Look out for the easter egg inserted in the orange tree, I always wondered where those came from! There’s even sufficient space for you to squeeze in the additional bell coin.


Tom Nook is the representative Nook for this set. As there is no Town Hall sets, poor Timmy and Tommy Nook are booted out of the shop. He’s in his ANCH outfit and Tom even has his arms printed to match the Hawaiian type shirt he has on.

Rosie is the chosen villager for this set. Her Dazed Dress outfit in ACNH is printed on the torso with both the front and back fully covered. She is also given a yellow ribbon accessory.


As big fans of the AC: New Horizons game, we were delighted with the announcement of this collaboration. This Nook’s Cranny and Rosie’s House set gets a 4.5/5 rating from us.
The set along with all other Animal Crossing sets will release on the 1st of March 2024.
