I love this!
on January 8, 2014
Being an adult is great because you buy lego sets whenever you want, and not have to wait for mom and dad to get it for you on your birthday. That being said, I bought this set for myself as soon as it was released (I've been waiting for this paticular set since before Thanksgiving).
This set is gorgeous. It's has a lovely colour scheme, and the mini figures you get for this price are a good deal! I adore the kitty unicorn (Unikitty), and Emmet (I enjoy his voice actor, Chris Pratt a lot). Wyldstyle and Executron round out the figures looking pretty sleek. The set is fairly small (197 pieces), and won't take long to build (just a few minutes for experienced builders). However, this is a set that girls and boys can enjoy together and with other sets can combine them to reenact scenes from the film.
Younger kids will probably want this set due to the fun colours and figures, but I wouldn't get it for anyone younger than 5. It's not an advanced set, but they might still have trouble. Also, I would hesitate to buy it for anyone older than 12, since they might find it "babyish". Just depends on the kid, though. I, personally, would have loved this at 14, 15, and beyond.
Girls will most certainly enjoy this set, and boys will like the mini figures of Executron and Emmet, and being able to have sets from the upcoming film. Although this is a small set, the colours and look of this set really set it apart. I would buy this again, along with the other movie sets (Ice Cream Machine is another cute, fun set for both genders).
