Recommendation: meh 87 / 100 by Tom

I think the Riverside Houseboat is a pretty solid buy. It is a good value in terms of the cost-per-brick, and you get a lot of build time for what you pay, especially when you factor in that you actually get the instructions for three different builds with this kit. The Minifigures are generic, but you get some nice accessories with them, and a good brick-to-fig ratio. I have already imagined a home for my boat in Ninjago City, but this set would look good in any coast scene, or cruising down a jungle river. I give the Riverside Houseboat a thumbs up, and my solid recommendation.

Recommendation: meh 4.33 / 5 from 6 reviews

This set was quite enjoyable to build, nothing difficult but I just felt happy while building. I love the sandy green and blue pieces and the colorful brick built canopies. The boat is very cute yet has plenty of room, the brick built animals are nice as well. Usually not a fan of the 3-in-1 Creator line but this one caught my eye for how nice the boat looks, I didn't feel the need to build the other two variants though. Would recommend this set to Lego fans young and old.

Recommendation: yes 7 / 10 by Linus

The main model is really nice. The others are not, but the house boat is good enough to get this set.

Recommendation: meh by Kat

Two out of three isn't a bad result for 31093 Riverside Houseboat and the marshland theme makes for some unusual models. It is certainly not a must-have LEGO set, but fans of idyllic river based trips will definitely find something to appreciate.
