"Bought this for my wife's birthday but the kids took it over. It has all the attention to details that allow long forgotten memories come to the fore- Bert's paper clip collection, Bird Bird's teddy, Bert and Ernie's appartment, etc.
Very enjoyable and easy build, only issue I had was regarding quality. I have been building lego since the yellow castle and this is the first time I have experienced this kind of issues. 1) colour of bricks depicted in instructions is of a different shade than the actual piece- so you initially doubt the use of the piece. 2) There is step in the instructions that skip step when installing a larger flat piece for the sidewalk. The previous step shows a hole and the next step has the the piece in place but no mention of the actual piece used (in the pieces required box). It seems to assume you realize that the piece needs to be installed.
In the end, it's a fun set with plenty of detail and playability. Very relaxing build."
