"I got the Lego Birds set for my father who is an avid bird watcher and we finally got to make the last bird today. What most fascinated me was the building out rather than up that just about all other sets have. You start with the belly of the bird an build it using studs on all sides through various connection methods. Since this was my fathers present I would let him build while I sorted and I would also clarify the instructions for him when he had trouble understanding them. The instruction are clear by the way but if you have not built sets in a long time having studs on 5 sides can make it difficult to find the correct orientation.
He absolutely loved the set an we had some really good quality time together building them. It was great to see him so happy and the birds look so nice as well above his fireplace. It was some of the best time I've had with him in a long time.
No complaints on how it looks. I just would have liked a real flower with its own sign.(The flower does not exist.)
I'm considering getting another one for myself as these turned out really well and I really hope we get an organic line from Lego to compliment Architecture.
I recommend this set to those who like birds and like nice looking display pieces. The price per part ratio is also great."
