4.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT - BUT FLAWED, 18 May 2014

This review is from: Lego The Simpsons House 71006 (Toy)
I love Lego, have done since I was knee high. Nowadays, my building is restricted to putting together kits for my ten year old Autistic son. He adores Lego houses/buildings & loves the sort where you can access the rooms by removable sections. So when he first saw this set (he loves the Simpsons as well), he left enough hints that he wanted it.

It's a huge set - over 2500 pieces - but is not particularly difficult when compared to a Technics set of the same size. I'd recommend setting aside a table top & a couple of days (or one eight hour shift!!). Set yourself out with a few containers so that when you open each numbered bag, you can sort the pieces into tiny, small, medium & large pieces (or whatever way you feel happiest with)

The roofs are a bit awkward, mainly due to the way the brown pieces are shown on in the instruction book. But if you work through it methodically, it should be do-able by a ten year old (although it may be worth an adult being nearby to advise)

When it's completed, it's a fantastically detailed piece. The roof lifts of the main house in three sections & the garage in two sections. You can then open up the house which hinges from the left hand side. It opens completely, so that the two sides sit side by side with access to all the rooms, which have too many pieces (vacuum cleaner, piano, cot, beds, toilet, etc.etc. etc.) to list here. The garage contains Homers car plus other bits & pieces - if you want to read a really comprehensive review, I suggest you have a look at brickset.com

However - there appears to be a design flaw. I have found that when the front of the house is opened, the weight of the opened side puts a lot of strain on the top right hand corner of the (rear) kitchen section. This causes a support beam pull away from the top of a wall section. It also causes the section under the kitchen windows to start to pull apart. I'm not an expert, but it would seem to me that this is due to the rooms not being "tied" together, which I appreciate is not possible due to them being at two different levels. The only fix I could see was to glue the offending parts together. I've contacted Lego to ask if this is a common issue or whether I've made a mistake - I'll update when I get a reply.

All in all, it's a brilliant, but flawed set which can be corrected with a very small amount of superglue - I glued about eight pieces together & it seems to have sorted the issue. The problem is that this is set that's going to be played with by small children, who by nature are generally not the gentlest - be prepared to have to keep rebuilding this section. If you can put up with rebuilding or doing a bit of glueing, it's a set that your child will love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 10 Feb 2014

This review is from: Lego The Simpsons House 71006 (Toy)
It's awesome set and gives a lot of fun with building . The roof needs some work, the floors being smooth brick and the house is very detailed with very cool bathroom - shower , tub , sink , toilet and mirror . I like also extra accessories : grill with sausages , post box and funny pink car :) The mini-figures and brick colors are so different from other sets - to reflect the cartoon nature of the Simpsons .

5.0 out of 5 stars EPIC, 25 Jun 2014
This review is from: Lego The Simpsons House 71006 (Toy)
Epic play set. Really detailed and worth the price. My 9 yr old put it together so although it says 12+ on the box he found it quite simple.
