Thank you for posting this.

Does anyone have it and can comment on the set? To me, it looks overpriced and underwhelming. I love pop-up books and I love Legos but these do not seem to be two great tastes that taste great together.

I didn't see this one being a big seller, so I'm not surprised by this discount. But sometimes they're a fun build or have other great aspects, so I'm wondering.

What I don't get is the Lego set is for 12+ ability, but these are stories for 5-6 year olds.

Two potential target markets
1) younger kids with advanced perception and fine motor skills who would enjoy both the story and the challenge
2) adults and adult collectors
While I have a preschooler who fits in category #1, neither market is very big. I'm not surprised at all that this set is discounted now. I won't be buying it because I see limited value in rebuildability and no real interesting pieces

We have the set and its really quite imaginative. A very good merge between Lego and popups with the usual details you'd expect. Things like red riding hood with a basket of cookies, a wolf mini figure complete with grandma pajamas, and an extra small Jack to make the normal giant look big on the the bean stock. I think its a great concept if Lego decides to expand it.

Man, just started building this set. Ordered it from the Lego site last week. Paid $59, so didn't really lose much I guess. Plus they sent along some free swag from the Lego Movie 2. So far, this is a fun build, as a 36 year old male.

It's a fun build and the fact that it is functional makes it really fun. There is a lot of appeal in designing custom builds for the interior since the mechanism for it working is already there.
I know lots of people that just got the set so they could build their own custom story book scenes in popup form.

Whether it is worth the price is entirely up to the individual as different pieces/builds are more or less valuable depending on what you enjoy. The general rule most Lego enthusiasts use is 10 cents a piece. By that scale the price you would normally expect the set to cost new is about $85. So for volume of pieces it is a deal but only if they are pieces you want or have a use for.

I think you are mistaken about your assessment that category 2 is a small market. being a member of a LUG (Lego User Group) I can say that most of the Adults that buy lego's for their own enjoyment have thousands and thousands of dollars worth in their collections. Personally a family member of mine has roughly 30k in lego and counting. And that collection, while large, is not overly notable within adult collector circles. Many collectors have storage sheds/units to hold the overflow from what they can display in their homes.

Realistically I would say it is fairly common for an adult collector to spend 1k+ per year on Lego for themselves, plus whatever they spend on gift for others as well.


That being said I know a good number of Adult collectors that bought this set because they wanted to use it as a framework for making their own moc's (My Own Creation). Some wanted to make a series of children's story inserts to swap out, others wanted to make adult story scenes in popup form.

Wouldn't the Amazon 5% card be the same result? Also what Amex promo are you talking about?
