design

The design of this set is incredibly aesthetically pleasing. It is impressive that such a small model can show such complexity. The design is completely asymmetrical which adds a personal touch. The model rests securely on a solid base. However, a noticeable drawback is that some parts are liable to break off. Just picking up the form can cause one or two towers to fall. But again, it’s not hard to fix, and if you’re using it as a display template, this often won’t be a problem.

The colors are very eye-catching. A mixture of blue shades, including bright blue, along with iridescent gold, white and gray, contribute to the eye-catching look of the collection. Plus, the panels in the castle’s rear windows are sparkling! How dazzling. The use of printed tiles instead of stickers is another aspect worth noting. An example is the clock face on the front of the castle. This design choice saved me the stress of trying to place the labels correctly.

While you don’t open the deck, you can still look into the castle through the front door. The building process includes hidden surprises. It is worth noting that in the heart of the castle there are tiles decorated with Cinderella’s glass slippers, a poster showing the Disney castle and two figurines. The downside, however, is that once the castle is fully assembled, access to these items becomes difficult. To get them back, one would need to dismantle the castle.

Ease of assembly

As for assembly, this set is generally quite easy to build. However, it does use a host of interesting pieces that elevate the building experience to an even more engaging level. For example, insert half cylinders and small triangular pieces onto the towers. Hinges add variety when attaching castle walls.

The building process involves creating the main base, assembling the smaller components, and connecting them to the overall structure. And that adds a sense of wonder, because sometimes, you’ll build something and wonder where it’s going. The only downside is that the steps are often repetitive which makes the building a bit monotonous. For example, building 5 identical towers has become repetitive. These steps are spread across several pages, necessitating a back-and-forth approach. I also lost a piece which slowed down the build process. how? One of the smaller circular pieces was hidden under a larger piece. Overall, it was a very quiet design, perfect for watching a movie in the background. (We watched Guyver: Dark Hero (1994) and I still get the plot pretty well.)

Oh, and for some reason, this group didn’t have a brick breaker. To be honest, you’re unlikely to need one for this set. However, i an act He met a small mishap, and disassembling the Lego blocks became quite a challenge.
