This is such a cute set, the shark is so awesome! All the pieces are great, my son has really enjoyed playing with the shark and crab. Love that we can make 4 different options with this one set. However I do wish it came with a LEGO separator.

I bought this set to use with students with Autism at my school. The boys love making up the shark or Angler fish and playing with them. Build instructions are clear and good difficulty level. The boys are 7-9 years old and the set helps to build up their fine motor skills and communication. Happy customers

Recommendation: yes by CapnRex101

31088 Deep Sea Creatures is an exemplary LEGO product. The shark looks absolutely wonderful and employs numerous interesting building techniques, the most impressive of which are probably its eyes. There are numerous points of articulation, providing tremendous play value and a broad range of options for display.

Recommendation: yes by Sébastien

A 4-in-1 model is an easy way to distract a child (or adult) for a short while, whilst not breaking the bank. The cons of 3-in-1 sets are that it's not possible to build all the designs at once, however at this price, you could pick up another one or two simply to have them all displayed. With a nice selection of dark blue pieces to please the MOCers, and a very displayable shark model to build, what more could you ask for – especially at £12.99?

Recommendation: meh by Simon

You can't go wrong with this set. One single complaint: the set should have included transparent 4x4 round plate and four or five transparent 2x2 round bricks to give the shark and the other animals the illusion of actual swimming.
