We are big lego fans in our house and my 6 year old has recently become obsessed with the Ninjago series thanks to the cartoon network show on Friday nights. He had a $25 gift certificate to spend and picked this set out because he loves planes and the color blue and therefor Jay is his favorite character. This set comes with two mini-figures(Jay ZX and Snappa), and some sort of snake temple(which I thought was silly but he loves) in addition to the plane so I think it is a pretty good value as far as Lego goes. I was skeptical that the mechanics of the convertible feature would make the jet too delicate to play with but was surprised at how well engineered and sturdy this model is! It really works well and is so cool and fun, he absolutely loves it. So far it has held up nicely to his play and has only broken when I(not my son) accidentally dropped it while putting it is a safe place before bed....oops(guess what I stayed up doing last night). He was able to put much of it together himself but my husband and I did help and double check most of it especially the series of hinges that make this model movable. This is our first Ninjago Lego purchase but I see more in our future for sure. I plan on getting him the Ninjago Brickmaster set since he has the Pirate Brickmaster and will spend literally hours with that alone building his own versions of the models in the book.

My 5 year old son and I have built a few of the Ninjago series sets now. This one is fun to build and use. When It is all together it is a fun toy. the wings pop out nicely and everything stays together as it should. The instructions are very good, such that my 5 year old can build it himself with just a little supervision.

My wife and I purchased this set and the LEGO Ninjago Cole's Tread Assault 9444 for my son for his birthday, and he is loving both of them! He assembled this set himself (he is 10 yrs old) in about 30 minutes, and I attached the decals to it so that they would be nice and straight. Fully assembled, this transforming plane looks really, really cool and is sure to occupy my son's top shelf (reserved for only the best toys) for quite some time. While ninjas and jet planes don't really seem to fit together as a theme, they sure are attractive to young boys! Sure to please your young LEGO fan!

This toy is great because it includes all the pieces it says it has. When you are done, it looks great!It took me 90 minutes with my dad.

I am generally not very brand loyal, but LEGO definitely does some things very right. My 6-year-old received this as a gift. It took him about 4-5 hours to put together, mostly unassisted. A few times he stopped and asked for help because he could not do the next step, but in most cases it was because he'd gotten ahead of himself and missed a step. The other 1-2 times it was because he'd installed a piece 1 or 2 places off.

We've tried the KREO Transformers and have found the instructions to occasionally be hard to follow, hard to execute, or for there to be missing pieces. Not at all in this case (in fact, we seem to have a few unused pieces, as often seems to be the case with LEGO sets....though these could be missing trim pieces due to more skipped steps, in the past when I have been more involved, we seem to have ended up with extra pieces as well).

Last I'm not a huge Ninjago fan, as it feels like a show developed solely for the purpose of merchandising. And though the LEGO characters are cute, the storylines (we follow it mostly in books) and the bad guys are quite violent in intent and action (e.g., descriptions of skeletons enjoying beheading). Even still, I give this a 4* for educational value because, divorced from the plot and action as it is here, it does a great job of "teaching" the skill of diagram reading. There are spatial relations involved, lots of fine motor skills, understanding the importance of step sequencing, reverse engineering to figure out how you got somewhere when something's gone wrong, "a-ha" moments when you put the sub-assemblies together to figure out why they've done something in a particular way (e.g., using pieces with smooth tops instead of the bumps to allow pieces to slide and move after construction), etc. - which would be true of any LEGO set.

Re: duability, the pieces have tight fit and finish. But despite the fact that sometimes the pieces stick so tightly it's almost impossible to get them apart, the completed project does not stand up to full-out action play (ninja battles!) without subassemblies occasionally falling off. Getting the elastic on was also somewhat difficult but iso far this has been fairly easy enough to put back together.

Kept the little guy self-entertained and very excited for a good long time (with excited "look at this now!" sprinkled throughout the afternoon). Now if only they could be priced so you could buy a set for every day! One can dream....

I bought two sets of Ninjago Legos for my nephews for Christmas. The looks on their faces when they unwrapped the packages was wonderful to see. They immediately started building all sorts of fun things. This series of Legos is very popular in my family.

My son is a big fan of Legos and he really enjoys this set. He has several other Ninjago type sets and he really wanted this one. Legos are made well and we have never had issues with them, as sometimes we have had quality issues with other brand sets (non-Legos). They are a great, well-made product.

My only complaint is that Legos are so expensive. I'm truly stunned at how much they charge for these sets - and I am certainly thankful that I've held on to Legos from my now adult children because they are wonderful toys that have held up well. I have Legos that are 20 years old, and some even older, in our playroom - and they are constantly being played with - excellent toys! Unfortunately - the sets now are so expensive that we won't be investing in as many as we once did - even though I know they will hold up - there is just no way to spend that kind of money.

Our sons, 4 and 6, are in love with the Ninjago line currently. My oldest son saved up in order to buy Jay's blue jet, sat at the kitchen table studiously for 2 hours building it on his own and was so pleased with the end result. However, by the end of the night, we had to rebuild the wings numerous times and the gold "blades". Not unexpected, but disapointing for a 6 yr old that just wants to enjoy his latest creation.

Lego Ninjago is a new subdivision from LEGO line. I have no doubt with the quality and the price for me to get this LEGO set is meet my <$0.10 per piece rule of thumb. The only thing is Lego Ninjago involves many small pieces that easy to lose. If you have a young child that is still developing their "clean up" routine, you might need to keep your eyes for him/her on the small parts.
