|Nintendo N&B Block Leisure House (1968)|
Both have the same name: "Leisure House" (レジャーハウス). But the models are quite different.

Although the name of the two sets is identical, the product code is not: one is called NB 980-L and the other NB 980-LH.
|The oldest Leisure House has product code NB 980-L, the newer is NB 980-LH|
The oldest of the two (NB 980-L) is the one I recently added to my collection. It is the rarest of the two. In fact, it is one of the rarest of all N&B Block sets, together with the Universe Set.
Although it is featured in a leaflet that came with many N&B Block sets, I wasn't sure I was ever going to lay my hand on it.

But now I got it. Finally.
With Leisure House I completed the range of almost fifty different sets. Well, at least those are the ones I know the existence of right now. But more may pop up at some point in the future.
