Firstly the price: This is a very expensive kit for a child who wants to build it and then break it into thousands of pieces to build spaceships from the bits (normally what my son does). However, if a child likes building and keeping their creation from a kit then this is fabulous - the final finished article has a moving staircase, revolving bookcases, books, lots of fgures but no Ron(why Lego - just why have you NOT included Ron?) It DOES however, have Dementors which my son thinks are amazing monsters.
Secondly - ease of construction: Having spent many a stressful hour building Lego Star Wars spaceships which my son then destroys to build something else I was wary of this. My heart sank when we opened the box and no fewer than 10 bags of Lego fell out plus three thick construction booklets. BUT - it was actually easy - really good and clear instructions with one bag making one thing and the next bag another mostly. This was good as it meant we could build the castle over a few days but that Bag 1 could be opened with all the figures and the beginnings of the castle - this meant my son could play with it right away which is just what you need with a kit this size. My son being both autistic and Lego mad at age 8 built this casdtle practically single handed as the instructions were so good. Granted he had constant supervision and a bit of guidance but mostly he built it himself from the very clear instructions.
Thirdly - final product: Looks absolutely amazing - it needs a board because it will break if you try and lift it without but as long as you have this it looks fantastic and should stay looking so. My son has actually left this complete and is still playing with it.
Detail is amazing with little Lego food in the Dining Hall, a bookcase with sliding doors in Dumbledore's office, potion bottles and stoppers, a copy of The Quibbler complete with Harry Potter headline in the common room and even a chandaleir.
Final opinion - expensive kit yes but well well worth the money for the hours of entertainment and play it offers. Well done Lego.
The 4 buildings are:
- Astronomy Tower, Library and the Room of Requirements
- Dumbledore's Office (with sliding staircase) and the Trophy Room
- Great Hall
- Gryffindor and Slytherin common rooms and the owlery.
The 4 sections can be joined together in whatever order the builder wants, and you can change them around if you don't like the order you have them in.
There are 10 mini figures (officially), however there is a bonus mini figure as well as some animal mini figures. You receive:

Astronomy Tower, Library and Room of Requirement - the astronomy room as the telescope for night time classes; the library with clear sliding doors and 3 books; Room of Requirements has a certain magical wardrobe.
Dumbledore's Office (with sliding staircase) and the Trophy Room - there is a treasure chest with a message for Harry inside; trophies (including James Potter's seeker trophy), potion bottles, remembrall, magnifying glass, Sword of Gryffindor and Sorting Hat.
Great Hall - stain "glass" windows, Slytherin and Gryffindor pennants, chandler, battle axes, food (including a Lego turkey) and dishes.
Gryffindors and Slytherin common rooms and the owlery - Gryffindor common room includes a fire with Sirus Black's face in it, a room with Tom Riddle's book and (if you turn the panel around you find the bonus mini figure of the knight in armour); Slytherin common room has decorative snakes on the wall in the back of the room; and the owlery includes owls and white owl poop bricks.
It took us several days to put it all together, but we like to take our time when building our Lego items. I would suggest that you only build from one bag at a time and that you empty your bag onto a tray (preferably a high sided tray so there is less chance of losing any pieces).
When we opened the box and saw all the pieces (and the bags) involved it was somewhat daunting, but if you take it a step at a time then the instructions are easy to follow. It also helps to teach the more impatient people (adult or child) patience and the benefits of taking things a step at a time. We also take photographs regularly during the build so that we can see the progression.
At full price (RRP) it works out as approximately 8 pence per piece (0.0794 per piece), so anything below that RRP tag makes it cheaper per piece and even better value for money. When comparing it at price per piece it isn't too bad and in some cases cheaper than some of the smaller Lego kits available. It is now a retired piece and so the price will go up.
All things taken into consideration this is a great Lego set. We use them as family builds rather than individual builds, and with the complexity of this build I would suggest that younger Lego builders will need that extra help.
This is great Lego and great value for money (taken as price per piece).
