"I bought this frame for the build of the mini LEGO Store and wondered about the quality of the frame part, but found it to be of great quality. It's not cardstock or even flimsy cardboard, but a heavy duty, thick cardboard-type material (sorry wish I knew what it was called). Very strong and wont bend if small hands get a hold of it. Also looks very nice with the build portion of it. I'm very impressed by this for the price point. I only gave it four stars because the frame from years past was completely brick built and I gave that five stars. If this were completely brick built, it would definitely have five stars :)"
"I love everything about this set. I think it's such a great idea and in fact I hope that LEGO will create some mini sets to change out the story in the book in the future. Because I like it so much and think that all the stops were pulled out for this set except for a couple of areas, I am going to be extra critical... LEGO, I feel like you could have sprung for some more dark green bricks. Instead using black in places where you can see the color on the front and back covers in two spots and along the bottom, the green really would have made this 100%. I swapped out the two black 1x1 bricks with the two studs that could be seen on the front and back for green ones and in the spaces that were left empty because I stole the green ones from, I put in a couple of gray ones that I had (those are hidden by the large plates on the front and back cover. However they can be seen when the book is open. A better alternative, though. However along the bottom where there are black 1x2 bricks with front facing studs, I had to leave them because I don't have dark green ones in my collection of LEGO. Is it really terrible? No, but this and one other set are my absolute favorite sets ever so I was being really picky. Really awesome that it made it into the LEGO Ideas line and so thrilled to have it :)"
"We've never purchased a Friends Advent Calendar before because of no interest in the Friend Dolls figures (I have boys). This year, the idea of a new ornament to put on your tree each day is great! Bought this for the family in general because they won't be played with, but adorning our tree and adding to our LEGO ornament collection. Looking forward to it :)"
"Like everyone has said, the decals adhere on the inside of the car making them impossible to be seen from the outside. Lego responded a while back with interest in bettering the product, but haven't seen anything yet. Hoping they truly will as I've been waiting for a new option to get these for my car! :-D"
