OK the main reason for buying this set is the minifigs. You get five, which is great for a set of this size. Supplied are two Griffindor player, Harry (of course) and Oliver Wood; two Slytherins, Draco Malfoy and Marcus Flint. Also comes with Madam Hooch to supervise.

All the minifigs have plain legs, and well printed torsos. 3 (Hooch, Potter and Malfoy) have double sided heads with different expressions. All figs come with brooms and there are clubs for the two beaters. Also included are flying helmets as an alternative to the hair-pieces, although oddly only enough for half the players.

The main assembly is a grandstand from which Madam Hooch can oversee the match, along with three goals set at different heights. you get a small stand with an impressively large trophy. Two small catapults for flinging the balls around and a chest full of balls (spare balls are included too).

The worst part of the construction was the flexible gold bars that form the hoops of the goals. These were very stiff to insert into the tops of the goalposts and it is very easy to end up with oval rather than round goals. I can imagine younger children struggling with this (the box states ages 6-12).

Plus points:

* Lots of figures, enough for a proper game
* Double sided faces adds flexibility.
* Spare helmets and balls increases playability
* Lots of accessories: a broom each plus clubs
* Faces, uniforms and colour schemes well matched to the film characters

Negatives:

* Hoops tops hard to construct
* Trophy is too big! It looks great on the stand, but ridiculous next to a figure.
* Madam Hooch's alternate face makes her look like a vampire.

Why does this cost nearly £50? I am used to the price of 'franchised' Lego products, we have a several Star Wars sets, you get about 60% of value compared with a 'non franchised' set such as Creator. You kind of live with this. So about 40% of the price goes to the franchisor.

But with the Lego Harry Potter quidditch set it feels as though around 80% goes to the Harry Potter franchise. It certainly doesn't go into the contents of the set! It is small and there is very little to actually build. In simple terms, pound for pound,you get very little Lego and very little building for your money. This cost more than the Lego TIE fighter LEGO Star Wars 9492: Tie Fighter which is a challenging build and a substantial piece of Lego. I would really struggle to find any redeeming feature of this Lego set given the price, it represents exceptionally poor value for money, even if you are used to the eye watering prices charged for franchised Lego.

Summary? Don't buy it.

There really isn't much to this set, and as a previous reviewer noted, it is really for the minifigs that you will want to buy this. It would have been nice to have all four houses (Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff are strangely absent from all the recent Lego sets), either in this set, or in another sold separately. Once you get past the building of the minifgs and the grandstand, you are pretty much done. My 6 year old was initially very enthusiastic about this set, and played with it for a good couple of hours. However, the snitch has gone missing and so has a bludger and he has other Harry Potter sets that keep him far more entertained. He likes the minifigs, particularly Madam Hooch who with her flying googles on looks great.

For a bit more money, Lego Harry Potter Hagrid's Hut is available and I would have no hesitation in recommending that set over this. For the sake of completeness, this is a set worth purchasing for any Lego Harry Potter fan, and the minifgs are rather good, but other sets are better value for money and I would probably only purchase once everything else has been bought.

This was a xmas present for my grandson, whose response on opening the parcel, was of pure delight and happiness. Since then it appears he has had many hours of enjoyment, coupled with a few challenges . Perhaps therefore a really excellent toy for him.

My son bought this toy with his birthday money and is very happy with it. He is 7 and found it really easy to build although he found some pieces were easily broken. Lots of little pieces like the golden snitch are easily lost but all in all he really likes it.

Both my boys love this Harry Potter set. It does contain specialised pieces and I guess that's why it's so expensive...plus I believe it is no longer manufactured. However, because my sons are so thrilled it's worth the money.

I purchased this for my son's birthday. He was delighted when he got it, his dad helped him build it but since it was built, he hasn't played with it since. I'm glad I didn't pay a lot of money for it.

The seller contacted me about 2 weeks after ordering stating the package had been returned to them and offering a refund. I asked them to clarify the address as I wanted the item and it was at this point they told me they couldn't deliver to guernsey. So the original return to sender story seems unlikely to be correct - it actually seems they just decided they did not want to post my item. It would have been good to know this at the point of ordering as I wouldn't have had a disappointed little boy who's present didn't arrive.
