This is my favorite LEGO Elves set I have. When I first laid eyes on it in a LEGO magazine I knew I would be saving up for it!
The trees are built on one sturdy platform and spaced perfectly, so that your elves can move around easily.
First tree-The first tree is the biggest, complete with secret compartment in tree trunk, moving leaf curtains and more! The day bed surprised me-I didn't know that it could swing open to be two cushioned benches!
The bridge-The bridge is my favorite part: it converts quickly and easily into a ladder. the bridge is a little hard to put together, but boy was it worth it!
Second tree-This tree is smaller than the first. It had a telescope, table made out of a dish, and a bed for the panther cub. It also has a bucket that can be lowered down to the ground. I instantly fell in love with the long glittery purple chain!
Ground-The ground is home to a cauldron hanging over a fire, a small stream, and two chairs and a table. Relatively simple, but fun. It also has the famous portal! The portal can be moved out of sight in the blink of an eye and I think the swirl-printed disc is quite unique.
Minifigures-I should say mini "dolls." And these dolls are awesome! Azari and Farran's hair pieces are new. Azari's hair is very neat looking as it turns from red to yellow. Emily Jones has her pendent printed on her torso and comes with a pocketbook. The panther is a great addition to my Elves animals!
Overall this set has NOTHING wrong with it. It is perfect. LEGO outdid themselves on this one, I must say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by closetnerd82 Daughters were ecstatic!
We weren't sure if they'd like the Elves series as they started their lego enjoyment with the Creator Series and Lego Friends Series, but this set was a huge hit upon opening it as a joint birthday present! We like the fact that this set can be magical yet not as violence based as other series have been. Also, the kids find it fun and whimsical to play with as there are 3 mini figure that are included in this set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hayli Fantastic for builders of all ages!
I'm an adult builder who has been looking for a set like this her entire life. In fact, I love the functional pieces, colors, designs, and characters of all the elves sets. The portal was fun to make. It's challenging without being too hard, and it's fun to play with and beautiful to display!

This is a fun set to build. It has several moving/working features and is designed very well. This whole series is a blast to build and from the hours they spend playing with these sets proves to be a big hit with the kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sixpip Good build and long term play value
My son (six, but well versed in Lego building) built this set a few months ago and it continues to have long term play value. The build was straightforward but interesting. The play features such as the collapsible bridge and the chain bucket are fun without being fiddly.
The best thing about this set is its capacity for long-term cooperative play. While we have been pretty deep in the Chima world I've never much cared for the amount of weapons or the oddly male dominant universe. Since the Elves elements (fire, air, earth, water) tie well into parts of Chima the Elves have had a positive effect on our play. For example, my son has built additional buildings and vehicles for the Chima phoenixes who are of course friends with Azari.
If you have a kid who is into magic and fantasy play don't hesitate on the Elves sets! The strongest recommendation is from my son, who decided to spend his saved allowance recently on another Elves set (the bakery, also great!).
I really hope Lego adds to the Elves collection. It has a lot of promise but I worry it's pigeonholed as a "girls" set and won't sell as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jrhergen77 love LoVe LOVE the new elves!
So glad Lego came out with the new Elves sets. My 7yr old got this for her birthday and couldn't wait to start building. She has several of the Friends sets, but the Elves have some really great secrets and moving pieces. She didn't want to stop building. I like that the Elves sets are not as "pre-built" as some of the Friends or Disney sets. The tree top hide-away is awesome and I can see her playing with this long after she's done building it. I can't say the same for her other sets.
I hope Lego will come out with more offerings in the Elves line. A little disappointed that she has already gotten the biggest set. Was looking for something in the same range as this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by julialegofreak Amazing set!
I absolutely love this amazing set! I got it for my 13'th Birthday on June 14th of this year from my parents. (2015) I adore the parting leaf curtains and the magic ladder/bridge. My dad really likes the magic bucket lift. the characters are extremely cute! I noticed, and loved how LEGO made Farran's head a bit longer than the girls' heads. (Farran is the boy Elf in this set)
The only 2 things I didn't love about this set were: the green potion and the sparkly lamp. I really don't like the look of sparkles in the pieces. It makes them look dirty, and with the transparent ones, you can't really see through the piece with all those sparkles inside.
Other than that, I really enjoy building this set, and playing with it!
