I am an adult builder that prefers the simplier (vs. Expert) city buildings. This was a fun build. Very colorful. A nice edition to the non-expert City sets. Hope that LEGO continues to add more such buildings aimed at adult builders!

Recommendation: meh 4.88 / 5 from 8 reviews

I purchased this set from Toyrus to build with my 5.5 year old. It comes with a mom and a child figure and it's a toy store so it's perfect for us! I love the color use and the instruction is very easy to follow. I would be gathering the pieces for my kid to assemble and then we would switch roles. We love the little ride airplane! We have other little mini figures that have been visiting the stores and living in the apartment above. The playability is great even with just one design, but this set has 3 different designs! I think it's a great value. This is our first ever creator set and we'll definitively be getting more.

Recommendation: meh 86 / 100 by Tom

ownhouse Toy Store is a nice set. It comes at an excellent value, and the only major drawback is the limited Minifigure selection. Both adults and kids hoping to build up a LEGO® city will find a use for this building. I like it marginally less than the Townhouse Pet Shop and Café, which is concurrently available in stores.

Recommendation: no 7 / 10 by Jetro de Château

The primary model was by far the best build and could easily be expanded and improved upon if you are looking to add this set to a street layout. All the builds have removable roofs, and with the primary build you can split the floors for easy access and playability. Structural strength in all the builds is pretty good, though the mini-builds above the doors of each shop are easy to knock out of alignment during play.

Recommendation: yes by Graham

Thankfully, the main model in LEGO Creator 31105 Townhouse Toy Store is entirely worth the asking price. Anyone looking for a quick fix to tide them over until the next Creator Expert modular building is released should pick this set up and build a delightful little toy shop.

Recommendation: yes by benbacardi

The Creator line of sets is never going to contain LEGO's flagship models. They're simple, easy, and fun for a quick build designed to spark your imagination into creating something more, and this set is no exception. It may not have the glamour, detail, and part count of its larger Creator Expert cousins, but it also doesn't have their price tag. It's a great starting point into the world of LEGO modular buildings, and is overall a compact but well-designed little set.

Recommendation: yes by Edwinder

This miniature modular is full of surprises with the little micro builds and wonderfully designed exterior and interiors. I wasn't prepared nor expected to enjoy such a simple set, but it did bring out the best in the end. Now comes the big question: is this worthy of a purchase? I personally feel that if you've been following the custom creations featured on The Brothers Brick over the years, and are itching to learn a trick or two on designing your own creation, you'll need to start somewhere. And as a 3-in-1 set, it also includes instructions to build two other models: a cake shop and a flower shop.

Recommendation: yes by Adam White

What I actually found was an amazing little set, with a surprising amount of detail, even the alternate builds of this set were almost as good as the lead model. I would even go as far as saying of all the sets I've built so far in 2020, this is favourite. I love all the small details which add architectural features both inside the building and over the exterior.
