Duplos are a great toy for little builders. This set in particular is fantastic as it comes with several animals, a zoo keeper, his vehicle, and food for the animals too. My kids spend a lot of time building homes for each animal.
This set is brilliant!
Plenty of bricks, plenty of animals and other accessories. Also plenty of activities for a father and son to do, including matching the meal to the animal. This was an instant hit. I would have given this 6 out of 5 for value if I could
This is a great small set for its value. My daughter has tons of the blocks and I was just wanting more figures for her to play with so this was great for that. It doesn't come with many blocks but someone just looking for figures like I was, this is the best buy. She plays with them all the time.
I got this set for Christmas, and I am very pleased with it. I have always made Lego seaside resorts with spas and pools, and I always wanted Lego to get a set out that had something similar. I was very excited when this came out, and that it was my favorite theme: Lego Friends! The minifigs that come with this set are really great, with new printed tops and legs, and the little rare pieces are a great touch, like the ice cream, sausage, slush puppies and palm leaves. The hidden waterfall is really nice with its large glass window, as is the Jacuzzi with little bubbles and nice curved wall elements. The large pool is nice and spacious, with the basketball net and curving steps. Going upstairs: the diving board, with it's mini-ladder, is a great addition, I love the spring especially. The slide is one of the best pieces, and the Friends go down it really nicely.
The Snack bar is really great, with its printed signs and little details. I play that Olivia's mum from Olivia's house works there.
The shower and changing room are really nice, the soap is a great touch, and the green folding doors are nice and smooth.
Altogether, this is a really nice set with lots of detail and good playing value, I have spent hours having great fun with it. :)

I first saw this in a Lego catalogue and didn't see any interest in this set and ignored it, I am only 17 at the time of reviewing this and had no interest in Volkswagen in any way, after 2 years since its release it really grabbed my attention after seeing reviews and the LEGO designer video. I purchased it ahead of the other 2013 exclusive sets.
This is a must have set for every Volkswagen fan and for people who grew up in the 60's. This is an impressive recreation of the iconic Volkswagen Camper Van from the 1960's, this is an iconic and popular LEGO set as its one of LEGO's best seller.
This set contains four unique pieces: Tr. Yellow Plate 1X1 W/Tooth, Pc used as interior lights in the Camper Van. Curtain Vw "No. 1" is a brand new element used as 6 curtains in the Camper Van. Bright Orange Pop Up Roof is another brand new element used for the Pop-Top. Brick Yellow Frame F. Train Window 1X2X3 only appears in this set in this colour.
This set does not include any minifigures. This set is not intended for play and is only a display set with features like the actual Camper Van.
This set is not really made to play, it does have features like: opening doors (4), Opening engine door which reveals the realistic engine design, opening rear window, opening safari windows, the iconic "V" front with the Volkswagen logo, front and rear licence plates, Gas tank, front and rear lights, Pop-Top, luggage rack, fold down table, seats can be changed into a bed, sink, lava lamp, plant, photo, "Make LEGO Models Not War" t-shirt, drivers area details.
This set contains fifteen unnumbered bags. The two instruction booklets are thick which come in a cardboard sleeve to keep them straight with the stickers.
The build is very enjoyable and not too repetitive starting at the bottom and working your way up, the stickers where the only down side to the build which stressed me out. The build is very study when complete.
Value for Money:
This retails for £79.99 in the UK and contains 1334 pieces. Volkswagen fans will really appreciate this model, however people who are not familiar may not be drawn to this set other than it is a bright vehicle which stands out from other Lego models on my shelve. It delivers a different build experience, compared to your average set as its aimed towards adults.
Volkswagen is iconic and can be recognised all over the world as this will be a fine addition to your collection and will make a great collector’s item.
This set is available at Lego Stores and http://shop.lego.com/ and other selected retailers.
The box is very classic and 60's style, with snapshots of features on the Camper Van.
This will do very well as a long term potential as for adults who are from the Volkswagen Community.
Yes, this It is a great collector’s item and display piece with minor flaws like:
Pop-Top is uneven, gaps in some areas, the stickers were a real pain and could have been printed, grill lines are suppose to be inside the van, engine door sticks out, small kitchen needs to be bigger, no turning axle (Even the wheel doesn't move) It could of have brick built luggage.
Final Analysis/ Conclusion:
Overall this set it is a must have set for every Volkswagen fan. If you’re a Lego collector of cars this will also be a unique and it will stand out from other Lego cars of this scale. This set has four unique pieces. Is it worth the money: for “Volkswagen” fans is a must buy. This set is a best seller so get you hands on it when you can.
I have built many of times large lego models and by far this has been the best model I have built. The detail in making the Volkswagen was outstanding the detail designer but lots of hard work and hours to get this looking exactly the same as a real camper van. The curtains had to be my favourite idea surprised to see that they aren't stickers! For £80 I must say that this is well worth the money and they building is ever so fun! Does take a few hours but it keeps your mind on the roll of what your building and where it's going next! I loved this and wish lego did a few more of these type builds maybe a caravan or a trailer for this camper van model!!
I love to see Lego star wars jabba sets be released like this.

The skiff itself
Go out and buy you one before they go discontinued, its worth it all the way!
Fantastic set. Kithaba is a nice figure. LEGO added some printing to Boba Fett's legs, but otherwise he is just his usual awesome self. Lando is a nice figure with a fantastic helmet design. The only problem I see with the minifigures is that Han Solo is not included. Of course, if he were, then the fight would be uneven, but LEGO could have included a Gamorrean Guard as well. The Sarlacc can actually fit a minifigure in its tongue! The skiff itself has a nice storage area for blasters and just looks pretty cool. I'd say the highlight of this set is the Sarlacc, and I recommend you buy it to compliment Jabba's Sail Barge.
