- January 22nd, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Fun build! Attention to details!TinyTina |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfOh my Gosh! Did the designer of this set Christopher Perron grew up in northern China? I feel he must be my childhood friend who remembers every details of a lunar new year celebration. I'm so deeply touched by the attention to details: pictures on doors , different types of fire crackers, Chinese cabbage stored in "nature fridge"... The building process is fun. I enjoyed making the Nian creature. I hope to see more set like this in the future!Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Story of Nian
- January 29th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Love it!I would recommend this to a friend!I have been watching this for a few weeks before it’s finally released. This is also my first Lego and I really enjoyed building it. It’s much easier than I thought. Love all those details and you can tell how much effort has been put into it. I was surprised how quality it was from time to time along the way to build it, such as the gate, lanterns, chun lian, and firecrackers! My only complaint probably is the missing brick on that small purple firework - I received only 5 (should be 6) orange connecting bricks, but I was able to put my fireworks together with a green one which I believe is an extra or misplaced bricks. I guess it’s just an individual case, because I see 6 orange connectors from other reviewers pictures. It’s not perfect but I still like it overall.1 February 2021Jon, Customer ServiceOh no! Missing pieces are rare so it's very disappointing when they happen. You can request a free replacement piece to complete your firework from: LEGO.build/BricksPieces-BV.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 3 hrsWas this helpful?55Story of Nian
- March 20th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0One of our favorite sets everI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis set is incredibly charming. The details are perfect. My only complaint is that Lego missed a great opportunity to teach through this build. The images at the front of the building instructions only barely tell the story of Nian and none of the details are explained (the elders cleaning, the couplets, the cabbage). This set presented an opportunity to bridge cultures and people. Lego came close but failed to make the final connection by giving us an explanation for each important cultural element. Even just a web address to learn more of the story would have been nice.Play Experience4.0Value for Money4.0Building Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Story of Nian

It is a beautiful set and great value for money. I have really enjoyed building it. True the building is only a wall but it looks great and provides a wonderful background for my colourful Chinese New year tableau. The minifigures and Nian are fantastic, so if like me you have been hesitating - don't wait any longer. Buy this charming set before it disappears.Value for Money5.0Build Time: 6 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Story of Nian
