To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The item was delivered as expected and well packed -> five stars on the delivery services. About the book itself, it is an amazing book with a lot of good ideas and my son was thrilled about it. Even me, I must confess that my eyes were sparkling considering all we could do... but that’s the tricky things, it will not be easy to get the parts required to do these constructions. We will have to buy from LEGO website and some other specialized sites which will come at a price. That’s the reason I gave it a 4 stars, not because of the quality of the book which is amazing but because it will be complex and pricey to find the parts.
Bought as a Christmas present last year, Grandson number three absolutely loved it, and kept him amused for ages. The book is the usual excellent quality that you'd expect from Dorling Kindersley, which slots nicely into a presentation box with the Lego pieces. There's two different small models to build with the Lego included, a Magical Fireplace and a Sorting Hat Spinner, with only enough pieces to build one at a time, so it encourages children to strip down a model and rebuild it into something else. There's also plenty of ideas in the book, with pictures included, to inspire children to build their own Harry Potter models (but be aware that the additional Lego pieces will have to be purchased separately).
This book was purchased for my 6 year old Lego and Harry Potter mad daughter. The book is really well executed and has given my daughter some great ideas for her own Lego builds. She also loved the sorting hat build included with the book.
The book really is good, the main issue is that although the book is great and has some awesome builds, we don't have the right bricks to build the ideas. If we want to recreate them we'll have to buy more bricks from Lego and spend more money. Hence 4 stars, but for the price this is a great gift idea for Lego and Harry Potter fans.
