I always thought lego was pretty unisex but this set has been a real success with the pink and purpleness. From start to finish I found it takes about an hour to put the set together without any adult help. The age range states 6-12 and today I've had a 7 and 11 year old put it together with ease (although the 11 year old Olivia professes this is too young for her and says don't buy this as a gift for 9+). The instructions are easy to follow and contain lots of new interesting pieces not commonly found in lego sets. The doll is excellent - a far cry from the clunky, old fashioned looking duplo dolls set of old. This is more tiny polly pocket with a modern edge. There are a few old holes e.g. in the hair, cat and duck which is presumably to stop the set being an immediate choking hazard if younger children get hold of it but it doesn't detract from the quality look of the set. The finished build is about palm high squared sized and there are lovely touches like a hidden jewel crate which a mini tree branch can fit over and a pivoting ladder. Very highly recommended. The boys like it too. Perhaps Lego is still unisex...
