Ciao needs to have a number of 'guides' to vet white dot members' first reviews before they go live on the site. The white dots are taking over, and genuine established members are getting even less exposure on the front page.

First impressions

If you are looking to buy a gift that offers great value for money then you could do a lot worse than buy a set form the Lego Creator range. The seaside theme that we have going on this set will appeal to a child that has just returned home from holiday, or one that likes the seaside in general. The seaside theme is reflected in all of the 3 buildings that you can make with this set of Lego, though not all at once.

The beauty of the Creator range sets is that you can buy a single set of building blocks and build lots of things with them. This gives you better value for money than having to buy 3 sets to build 3 things, or just having a Lego set that allows you to build 1 thing. Unfortunately this means that you cannot build all 3 models at the same time, but this is the whole point, and the value for money is clear to see.

The Lego brand is known for its high quality, and although this is not a current model in their range, the popularity of the Lego brand means that these sets are available regularly on eBay and through Amazon sellers.

My experience

This particular set has an age guide of 7 to 12 years, and I think this is appropriate for the set we have here. There are a total of 415 pieces in the set, but these are not all used for each different building. Some pieces are left each time, but the build is still a little bit of a challenge. With the glossy instruction manuals and lots of accessories to add to the total number of pieces, the builds are simple enough for a child of 7 to 12 years who has past Lego building experience.

In this set we have lots of accessories, and they reflect the seaside theme. We have a surfboard, grill, a sand castle, a seagull, a crab and fish! These accessories add to the whole theme, and we even have a wave, suggesting we have an ocean for the surfer to surf on!

The seaside house is rather detailed, with an opening roof and a removable top floor for easy access to see the fruits of your labour. The 2 story property has double-doors to allow you to enjoy those views, along with a veranda and a shower room. All the mod cons are included, and the attention to detail in the house is typical of a Lego build.

With this set we can build 3 properties. These are the seaside house, a house with beach hut, and a vacation apartment. I think that the apartment is the easiest build, but the most impressive has to be the seaside house, and this is the first one we built, because the big image on the front of the box makes you want to build that first! The bright colours are typical of Lego, and this really is an eye-catching set that will capture the imagination of a child, especially if they are just about to go to the beach or on holiday!

Price and availability

This is a dated model, though as it is Lego branded the prices are only going to rise as rarity becomes a factor. The brand new sealed condition sets are commanding upwards of £40, though the RRP was only £34.99 a few years back. Used prices are relatively low, and you can pick sets up now for around the £10 mark if you shop around.

Final thoughts

Overall this is a fun set, and with 3 buildings to explore it will be a lasting challenge for a child as they will change between the various buildings from time to time. One day they might want a seaside house, but the next they might like to build a vacation apartment.

I wouldn’t say that the possibilities are endless, but this is a set that is sure to entertain a child, all they need to add is a few minifigures and the set is complete! I do think that just the single minifigure is a bit mean, but as more can be added I don’t imagine this will be an issue for most people, as children are always likely to have a few minifigures that would be appropriate for this set.
