"This is a very cute house. The swing on the front porch is a nice touch as is the swing-around staircase. It has a swivel chair in the office. How cute. The rooms are small, especially the kitchen for adult hands but a small child would most likely have an easier time playing. The colors are bright and cheery. It was easy to assemble and the Lego instruction books are the best instruction booklets I have ever seen for a product. I am an adult senior enjoying putting these sets together. My one thought is, if one is going to purchase multiple Lego theme sets, invest in a table or shelf to put the sets on so children won’t have to take them apart and then have to rebuild every time they play With them."
Pros: It comes with a superb selection of figures. The centaurs are some of the coolest figures released this year. They have double sided heads and front and back printing. Their tails are molded in a different color from the rest of the body so they can withstand play without getting damaged. It’s great to get Dolores Umbridge in a widely available set that isn't a small fortune. I think her face accurately captures both her sadistic smile and scared expression. Harry and Hermione are also cute. The set includes some very rare parts, such as sausage pieces in sand green. The tree is nice has some cool details like the bike handlebar that Grawp gives to Hermione. Grawp has a printed face (not a sticker) and a pink piece where his brain should be.
Cons: While Grawp looks impressive from the front, his back side leaves something to be desired. To be sure, for play and display purposes this is not a problem, but it is something that could have been easily fixed using some tiled pieces. I don’t think most kids will care about this though to be honest. Also, though the tree is nice, it doesn’t really do anything other than open up. It is fun to build though.
Overall, this is an amazing set and I think anyone receiving it would be very lucky."
