The LEGO Burrow playset is made of AWESOME!
on November 28, 2010
We picked up this Burrow playset at the LEGO store in Austin right after it came out, and we're glad that we did. The Burrow, of course, is well known to Pottermaniacs as the dwelling of the Weasley family, and this particular set depicts the Burrow under attack by two of Voldemort's evil minions. It's made even cooler by the fact that this is the only 2010 Harry Potter set that does not represent a building previously seen in any of the other Harry Potter sets. This set also gives collectors the opportunity to get minifigures of Fenrir Greyback, Bellatrix Lestrange, Arthur Weasley and Molly Weasley. None of those characters are available in any of the other sets, making this a must-have for the LEGO Potter completists out there.
This set is fun and easy to build. My 9 year-old son built this model in about 4 hours with only minimal help from my wife and I. It's VERY detailed, down to the cutlery in the kitchen drawers and the flowers in the hanging pots outside the windows. It's also sturdy enough for floorplay, as we have had a lot of fun enacting scenes from the movie as well as improvising our own dialogue and action with the characters and sets.
Can't recommend this one enough, especially as it's unique in the LEGO Potterverse. The typical LEGO quality is just outstanding. This set builds well, displays well, and plays well, and that makes it worth every penny of it's purchase price.
