A great new direction & an Open Letter to Lego....I purchased this set as a present for my nephew who recently turned 8.
The night before we went to Smyths Toy Shop to purchase this together, I noticed that he was having trouble trying to realise the building he had in his imagination. He was becoming quite frustrated. Not because he couldn't imagine how to build it, but because he didn't have the appropriate elements.
He has hundreds of pounds (£) worth of Lego and yet he couldn't build a basic house. The reason? All of his many, many sets that he owned were the movie franchised sets, so think Star Wars, Marvel Superheros, etc. and even with thousands of elements he simply could not build anything that met with the expectations of his imagination. Imagine that, all that Lego and he couldn't build a basic house.
You might argue that he simply wasn't using his imagination and that you can build a house (in Lego) out of any combination of elements. This is true. However, we all have to manage the void between imagination and expectation when working with constraints (limited elements) and the fact remained my nephew couldn't realise his imagined house, to the expectations he set upon himself (which were not unrealistic in the slightest) during his build. He was becoming disenfranchised with the Lego brand as a source of being able to help him realise his imagination and express his creativity.
The next day, after a few other purchases were secured from his birthday money, I directed him to the Lego aisle because I was determined for him not to give up on the brand that helped make my childhood the wonderful experience it was. We gave Lego another chance with this set...
What a difference. Even though this set lacked what I would call "wall elements", its move towards a modular nature allows children who have yet to experience building something from their imaginations from scratch, the opportunity to experiment in customising (the first step to experimenting with creativity). Then, when they are done experimenting, they have a collection (or at least a good start of a collection) of elements to build their first creations from scratch that look realistic and live up to their expectations.
If your child is facing the same dilemma and frustrations as my nephew, I implore you to purchase this set. It's relatively well priced, comes with a great assortment of elements and is an excellent precursor for the more aspirational modular sets aimed at experienced builders. But more then anything it is a set that actually supports your child's creative development. Ditch the Superheroes sets and buy this. Your child will thank you later on in life.
Dear Lego, I am sure I am not the first person to bring this matter up. I'm not even sure if anyone with any influence will ever read this. It doesn't matter because I'm writing it anyway in a hope that I can share my experiences and suggestions with other parents and adults who buy Lego for children.
I am an educator in the creative arts. I consider myself relatively creative and technical in equal measure. I have won awards for my design and development work.
I grew up in 1980's when money was scarce and toys were few (at least in my family). I attribute a great deal of my success today directly to Lego. Lego allowed me to conquer my fear of failure by allowing me to experiment. The risks were low and the rewards were high. I can not stress how important it is for children to develop their skills in exploration and problem solving using constraints.
Lego sets of the 1970's and 80's were very basic by today's standards. But there's one thing they had which is not present in more recent sets. That is their flexibility to be rebuilt in different forms. Even the Lego City (or Legoland) sets had suggestions (and sometimes instructions) for alternative models. This is crucial. Not because the other models were as appealing as the primary model but because it demonstrated that it is ok to try something new with the elements from this set.
To your credit you have never given up on this notion. You have always provided buckets of bricks and the recent Creator series is probably the best it's even been. But your focus has shifted away from creativity and moved towards play and selling franchised sets. I totally understand your business model and that franchised sets represent an important core to your sales strategy. You are also competing against products with high engagement factors. I wouldn't expect you to change your approach. What I would prefer you to do is to ensure your themed and franchised sets are designed more to be modular (like you've done with the set above) with the notion (and suggestion) that "more can be built with this set" and encourage creativity and experimentation. Even if this means you have to sacrifice some likeness accuracy.
You should also address the issue of problem solving. Instruction manuals are aimed at quick and easy builds with instant gratification. However, the sense of achievement after a build can be quite low. No child likes to be frustrated, but managing and coping with frustration is crucial to their development. Instruction manuals of the 1980's were far more challenging. Please make your sets a better balance of construction/problem solving and play again.
Adults and parents, I implore you to consider encouraging experimentation and creativity by purchasing more of this type of set or at least mixing the "cool looking" themed and franchised sets with expansion sets of bricks to elements to allow your child an outlet to manage their expectations, aspirations and frustrations. See and support Lego as a creativity tool and not just a play experience.

Neat concept, lacks in constructionI really like the concept of this lego set. The details such as the charging station, solar panels, and clear wall styling make this house stand out among the rest and make it a perfect addition to any city layout. This, to me, makes this a worthwhile set since I will not be playing with it. What I really did not like was the construction. For some reason, every single wall panel and roof on every single modular house piece is designed to pop out. My guess is that this is to add playability and access to the rooms, however the result is a building that is constantly falling apart. It was frustrating during the build trying to keep the panels in place every time I had to touch the building to add a newly completed panel. Forget picking it up to move it once it's built. Panels fall off and pieces break off. As much as playability and access may have been the goal, I think this really detracts from the playability. In short, recommended for layouts but not for playing.

Modular Modern Home Makes the Most of it!Yet another Creator set that offers the same features that other Creator home sets have had in the past, except this one can be made into multiple different looks. You can move the windows, sides, etc. around in every build to give each one a different look. I like that feature, it's a very unique and fun feature IMO. However, that does mean that picking up the creation is a bit difficult without breaking it. Also, the detail on the inside of the modulars is minuscule (like most Creator homes), but as I've said before, the builds all are functional, playable (somewhat), and the 3-in-1 aspect is very appealing to me. I recommend!

Nice Easy BuildIt has been awhile since I've put Lego together but I had a Lego itch after looking at the Creator Expert modular buildings and bought this set to satisfy it. This is also to prepare me for more complicated builds, just invested in 10257 Carousel set. It is an adorable house and easy to put together. The house has some nice details to them. I love the little beds, dog and RC chopper that came with it. I opted to build the 2-storey version with the moveable roof because it appealed to me more. I had a bit of a problem because I had a missing part but managed to use the extra parts to complete the build. The completed house was a bit flimsy though so I had to be careful when moving it. The outer parts (doors, porch, external features) are susceptible to coming off because they are only connected by two studs to the main parts. Overall, I enjoyed the build and the house is just so adorable.
