I was disappointed when I missed out on the location setting seasonal sets** two years ago with the restaurant for Valentine's Day and the kitchen for Easter, and then the animal sets last year were very underwhelming. So, when I saw more location setting seasonal sets were going to be released this year, I was very excited! **say that ten times fast! After building the Romantic Valentine Picnic set, I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with it. The build itself was straight-forward enough, though I enjoyed building some of the smaller elements such as the fountain. I am impressed with the level of detail on the smaller elements such as the dessert platter and utilizing a mini figure head piece for the pineapple is cool to see! One part of the set that particularly impressed me was the extra pieces, which included the more detailed and unique pieces, such as the cookies and cupcakes, as well as the updated flower pieces of varying colors. I've bought a green base-plate and plan on adding this set onto it along with the Easter Egg Hunt set and the Fun In The Park set so that my boys can play with them all together. I don't remember what other holidays get seasonal sets, but I'm thinking just Halloween and Christmas. Hopefully they are up to this level, because this set is really enjoyable! Good job, Lego team!
I like being able to get smaller sets that have really great pieces and sweet little scenes. This set has both. I love the little cookies pieces, the little pineapple, and the figures, among other things. I think it's great for even outside of Valentine's Day, especially since it is a romantic picnic scene, and could be used any other time too.
LEGO Seasonal Sets are usually great value and 40236 Romantic Valentine Picnic is no exception to the rule. It's a fun little set and it won't hurt your wallet too much. It's an awesome standalone set, or it can be easily integrated into your LEGO Town or City.
Although I wished everything was just one since build and not separate little ones, I do like it still especially everything coming together to form the heart.
I really enjoyed the vignettes in 2015, and this set picks up where that series left off. It's a lovely little build, with plentiful details - this couple has thought of just about everything for an idyllic picnic in the park.
This is a great little set. I'd recommend getting at least one while they're available! I know I'll be grabbing a couple more if I can, just for all the beautiful elements.
What I like about this is that this set can appeal to both the kids and the Adult Fan of LEGO (AFOL). The child gets to build a cool little vignette while the adults and builders can use the parts from this set. There is a wide variety of elements in this build that ranges from the flowers studs to the champaign bottle and glasses to the random pineapple that sits on the picnic blanket. This is minifigure accessory heaven. Another cool little easter egg is that when you try to take a top down view of the vignette, you can see the grassy area (the green plates) form a neatly shaped heart.
