This Lego toy is easy to put together. All the characters from the first book the Philosopher's stone are there. The train can be pushed along so you don't need any expensive track. Alternatively if you want to run it on Lego's train tracks it is easy to convert. My son and I have enjoyed playing with it since we bought it two weeks ago, so much so that we bought another one so we could add another carriage and more people. We've been to Hogwarts School travelling through towns and countryside to get there and enjoyed listening to Hary, Ron and Hermione on the way. We hope you enjoy playing with the set as much as we have - who knows where we will go next.

This is the must have toy for all boys whether they are grown up or not. It is probably the luxurious red colour that attracts first but the detail included in the set is of a very high level. The packaging is superb and the whole thing has excellent play value for all affecionados of the film. Most of the other Potter merchandise is firmly put in the shade ( frankly where it belongs ) by this quality item that is high on attractive colour high on richness of detail and high on play value. Just what you want a toy for.
For my money this is the top of the range and will attract the "must have" label in the same way that Buzz Lightyear did some time ago.
It will be nearly impossible to find this second hand in years to come. Those lucky enough to have it will keep it forever.
