This set was bought for the kids and is one they saved up for. It come up with a good reduction in price and so they bought it and have had a good time playing with it. The set also looks good on the shelf as well and you can customise the time of the year it is with some cosmetic features being changeable to show winter of autumn or summer which, while a nice feature, just adds a lot of little extra bits that get lost around the house until I stand on them. You only get four Lego dolls which isn’t much for a £90 set and I would have liked a pianist to go with the great piano (a fantastic mini build that I love). The front looks good and the revolving doors are great. Inside you get three bedrooms, a lounge for the piano and a reception. The floor space is good for playing as well as there is space to put the dolls, there are also lots of doors to open which is always exciting. The set comes with several woodland creatures and a dog so you do get some of those nice animal pieces. Durability is high: during several play sessions I wasn’t having to rebuild the hotel much. The little extra even hold up quite well to play, at least in the play session my kids have. The flags do keep coming off though but they are decorative anyway. Playability is high: the children loved it. They could play hotels (as intended) or could just use it as a generic building as well. The only play features are doors but the revolving door is fun. Affordability is low: at full price there any better sets to get (As I’ve said before, Ninjago is often well priced) but it regularly comes down in price and I got it for around £50 (a much more suitable price). Even for Lego it seems quite high, but it is quite a large set. Displayability is high: it looks good and is relatively thin compared to other bigger Friends sets. The floor space is pretty much a rectangle which means it is easier to display on a shared shelf; the fact it looks nice helps with this. Buildability is medium: some fun builds a and I liked building the rotating doors but nothing too fancy or interesting. It isn’t particularly difficult to build but it is big and so younger children may grow bored. There are some fiddly bits as well but nothing too bad. Overall: I like it and the kids like it. I like the piano build and think the keyboard brick is great. I like the brick colour (especially the roof) and love the Dr Strange like circular windows (in fact the roof is my favourite part of the build). The kids really enjoyed it and it didn’t keep falling apart meaning I didn’t have to keep rebuilding it. If you can find it at a reduction then I think it is an ok set to get - not an essential set but one to pick up if you like the Friends line or like the look of it.
The edges were so nice and the colours so vibrant. Clearly well engineered and no no doubt a vast amount of materials science going in to durable polymer. Delivery was exceptional, with a van on 4 complete wheels handing the parcel in the highest quality paper again engineered to be torn off. This what the purchase of the year and I am likely to buy again, possibly selling my own house and living in a lego skyscraper
Ok so this hasn’t been been opened yet as it’s a birthday gift for my granddaughter. She has loads of the Lego Friends and she’s really excited about the new ones coming out. She loves playing school so I though this would be the ideal one to get for her. I’ve given 5* for everything as they have always been excellent quality.
This is a nice little set, bought for my 5 year old. She made a solid attempt to build it but did need a little assistance (which was nice because I like to build to). She has spent hours playing with the completed set.
This is a fun little set that my girls (8 and 10) enjoyed. It was both interesting to put together (not always a given with some Lego sets) and then fun as a playset, with lots of little details to keep them entertained. There are enough lego pieces to rebuild something fun outside the instructions as well. Highly recommended.
Was on the fence about getting this set, but saw it was on offer on Amazon and decided to purchase. So glad I did as it is so pretty. Makes a lovely display piece, but the play value is great. Love the canoe and the barbecue.
