A model shop built with Kiddicraft's Self-Locking Building Bricks.

Features include use of a printed cardboard slot-in door, a printed cardboard slot-in window, cardboard roof, and a slot-and-clip plastic window frame. The cardboard shop window display was one of many card inserts supplied wit the set, or children could cut out and colour their own inserts as a way to make their play more creative.

The way that the window frame clips between two rows of studs is more commonly considered to be a "modern" Lego construction trick ("SNOT" - "Studs Not On Top").

Assembled model house, Kiddicraft Self-Locking Building Bricks. Note the curved corners. Some of the apparent gaps in the wall are actually end-slots
