"This was my introduction to Lego Kits. Oh my! So much fun. Loved getting to read all about the development and background of this set and I really enjoyed doing it. I marveled at the mechanism of the popup! So great! And it is two books in one. Though I am partial to Red Riding Hood, the beanstalk is amazingly constructed!"
"This is my second Lego kit (I am a late starter). I find the kits focus me and this one was amazing. The detail in it - adjustable rear view mirrors, the drivers side window that slides open and closed, the fire extinguisher and the umbrella stand to name just a few - amazing! I had the same problem as one of the other reviewers with dark gray, gray, black in the instructions but it was in a place that is not visible so I am doing my best to just "let it go". I even use the pdf instructions on my laptop so that I can zoom in and I am not sure how I made the error, but it is okay. Only I (and you readers now) know. I am surprised it did not come with a little driver and a couple passengers. I will add some from other purchases. Overall, if you can get this, it is wonderful and helps to feed my need to be around British things!"
