Great Set, Great Build, Excellent for Kids
" I bought this for my 6 year old daughter. The look on my daughter's face said it all when she saw the constructed hall. She was in awe.
I found this to be a very involved build that took me some time. 6 large bags, bases and 2 big manuals for this build.
I really liked the mini-figs in this set a lot. Particularly, Hagrid (I just love that one), the red Dumbledore, Professor Mcgonagall, and Professor Quirrell stood out for me.
The Basilisk, Fawkes, the Sorting Hat and Mirror of Erised were great features.
I enjoyed the use of the diamond lattice window panes. They really stood out for me. It makes for a great decorative effect. And when the light hits it just right it's perfect.
Probably the only things I would have changed is how they handled the candles hanging over the Great Hall and the stairs.
The candles were really a pain to put together for someone with big hands.
The stairs just never stay open if you want to use them. My daughter did complain about those more than once.
I think they could have taken a different approach on both, but in the grand scheme of things it doesn't take away from the playability of this set at all. "
I would recommend this to a friend!

Excellent Set
" I bought this set for my 6 year old daughter. While I assembled the set it's a highly playable set. And I didn't think the build was particular difficult. I did like the way they separated the sections of the build. They were well thought out. Awesome creatures (although our Erumpents seemed to be missing a leg part, but eventually I'll get a replacement). She plays endlessly with the Thunderbird and the Occamy. And the ability to fold it back into the suit case is an awesome feature. I love the attention to detail. "

Overall a good set
" Overall, I like this set. It's straightforward to put together. It's cool how every tower is a little different. And I like the scoreboard, the launchers and the goalie movement piece. I liked the mini figs.
Why a 4 instead of a 5?
1. I wasn't 100% thrilled with the two loose towers because we (my daughter and I) find that we regularly knock the towers over by playing.
2. The interior of the towers aren't high enough to stand up a full size minifig.. While the set was intended for Snape to be sitting, I'd like to be able to stand him up and likewise be able to populate the other towers with standing figures. Also, the Hermonie minifigure is short enough to stand and I like consistency.
3. I'd like stands of some kind for the Quidditch players, so I can make them look like their flying.
There are a few things I'd love to see in an expansion set:
a) A second set of rings/goals so you can have an entire field. I have determined that if you buy a "second bag 3" (you can get the parts list from customer service) you can have another set of goals and link the other two towers together (thus removing my #1 issue above
b) I wish the new the Harry Minifig line had more Quidditch players or have an expansion set with more players.
c) I'd love to see an expansion that just has some bleachers to put between the towers. That could be another way to join them together.
But, in the end, my daughter loves it, so it's work for me. (Now, if we can only find Hermione.) "

Too Small
" I bought this as secondary storage unit. And I found it very very small for the cost versus the larger brick units. I would stick with the large rectangular storage unless you want something specifically for smaller pieces. Then it might be a really good idea. It will only hold about 30 mini figures with their accessories and bases with the bases off. "
