Outstanding creativity!
" My 10 year old son and I built this set together. He’s moved past a lot of the more basic Lego City, Harry Potter and Jurassic World sets and is wanting to try more unique Lego sets. This set lives up to creativity! Like nothing I have seen before from Lego. The bonsai tree comes with both standard green leaves or they can be switched out to cherry blossoms. When I opened the box, initially I wasn’t sure what to make of the hundred plus pink frogs. We had seen the frog piece before in green with various other sets (Harry Potters and a treehouse set). It turned out amazing and the cherry blossoms were beautiful. Such a creative way to reimagine a piece! This entire line uses existing piece types in re-imagined ways and they are incredible. Can’t wait to try a few other sets, especially the aquarium.
Overall the build took us about two hours as we did a bit of pickup and put down. But it was so much fun! Challenging in a few spots to keep us both entertained. My son needed help in a few areas with the trunk. Not entirely suitable to a younger builder but could be done with some adult help. This is not a “play” set but rather a display piece and it’s amazing! Lego has given us hundreds of hours of electronics free time over the years and we will forever be loyal Lego builders. "
