"I was a little disappointed after I built this set. I really liked the colors and design, but it was hard to build. Now, I've been building for a while so when I say hard to build, I mean that the pieces were hard to stay in place, and the pressure applied on certain parts of the pieces caused them to jump up a little bit. The set collapsed easily, which is why I rated the play experience a 2; the set wasn't durable enough. The value for the money wasn't that good either, and though the price to part ratio was normal, what you got for a $20 vehicle was so small. It seemed bigger on the box. But the main problem with this set was the doors. Like I mentioned that the pieces were often popping up, I couldn't close the doors properly. The arches above the wheels were always up, and if I pushed them down, the wheels wouldn't move. The doors would close, but it was flush to the tiles. You also had to remove anything on the tiles in order for the doors to close and the doors also kept popping up, as well as some of the pieces that held them in place. Overall, I do not recommend this set, but it was okay, I liked the colors and the fact that the back hinged open but there wasn't enough space in the set and pieces would often pop up. I was also able to fix the pop-up issue by moving the display in the front back a little bit, but that meant that there was even less space to play inside the vehicle. Even though I didn't like some parts of the vehicle, the scooter and the tree area were very nice and I know that vehicles are hard to build with a minimum number of pieces. I just am not pleased, I set high expectations for lego because of the price."
"I purchased this set a few days ago. I like the new look for the characters and how Mia's colors and personality were expressed in this set. For looks, I think this is the best house you made so far! However, as a child at heart, I also look for play value in these sets. I did find some ideas, like the rock climbing wall fun to interact with, but the house seems to be lacking in bulk. This house is amazing, but I would of preferred you make an extra layer in the house than use those baseplate pieces for the roof. Yes, that does make the house look more awesome, but the bathroom doesn't even have a shower! I actually had to extend the bathroom and build on myself! This house also lacks in modularity and customization. It is also hard to get your fingers into the bottom floor and it isn't easy to remove layers. Overall, the elements and colors in this house are great, I just think that even though the price to part ratio is the norm in lego sets, the way you can use those parts isn't as great."
