While most Lego playsets come with just a few minifigs, this one is packed with almost the entire cast. Harry and his companions Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley are included, along with Hogwarts staffers Hagrid, Professors Dumbledore, Snape, and the evil Dolores Umbridge. Potter will also have to contend with his nemesis, a newly designed Draco Malfoy who sports a mischievous grin, and a Death Eater. The playset also introduces two Thestral minifigs modeled after the large, winged, skeletal horses from the fifth installment.
With almost a thousand pieces, kids between 7 and 12 will likely take a few hours to put it all together into a finished playset. Fortunately, Lego includes colorful, step-by-step diagrams that makes construction--pardon me for saying it--a snap. And unlike other, non-Lego playsets, this can be broken down and re-assembled into many different combinations.
|Hogwarts Castle comes with nine minifig characters from the story.|
The downside, though, is that Lego packages all of the tiny plastic parts in bags that don't reseal. You might want to consider getting one of those parts organizers to keep the pieces well sorted between assemblies or at least safe from Lord Voldemort. --Porter B. Hall
CHOKING HAZARD - Toy contains small parts and a small ball. Not for children under 3 years.

This set was purchased for my 8 year old daughter on her birthday. The delightful elements, colors and unique characters sold it for her wish list. As her father and a fan of all things LEGO, naturally we built it together. Together we spent 2 1/2 hours on the construction, and each portion of the set is contained in numbered bags that you do not open until you reach the step in the construction that requires those parts. That limits confusion; after all it is 943 pieces. When I was a kid the largest set I had was probably only half that size. A benefit to my daughter was the inclusion of no fewer than three female minifigures, two with LEGO hair! That's always a plus for her ;)
Though it is large and can take some time to build it is very educational. Structures and supports are all well used in this set. The step by step build process meant that at certain points in the process my daughter could have a completed tower, Herbology Classroom or another portion of the set already complete for a few moments of diversion. Older kids, and adults will likely have no trouble at all with the time it takes. Younger kids naturally are going to need a little help or they might find it overwhelming.
A great LEGO set, full of exploration, character and fun. Definitely a family moment. You'll be eager to play with your child with this one. Or just get one for yourself. It's great.
I agree with the previous poster, that the numbering of the bags was a plus. And with all the mini figures included, my kids will actually be PLAYING with this set instead of just building it and setting it on a shelf to collect dust.
I was a huge Lego fan as a kid and this set brought back the fun.
I wish Lego would sell separately a few other characters (Sirius,Bellatrix, Ginny, Lupin and especially Fred and George, Dobby etc).
But I had always been a Lego fan, and I am more so after getting this.
