Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 from 42 reviews

Everything about this product was what I paid for and what I expected. There were no flaws to be seen, and the cute little bee is a perfect decoration for our computer desk.It does however come apart a lot, especially the little honey pot the bee is holding and the flowers. But it's Lego. There's nothing wrong with the way it was made, that's just how it is. I suggest putting it somewhere it won't be touched.

Recommendation: meh 4 / 5 by Jay

Whether you're a fan of Brickheadz or not, I highly recommend picking this one up. I haven't been this excited about Seasonal sets since the very first Valentine's Day vignette. These make great gifts, are easy to build and are great as display pieces.

I love what LEGO has done with the LEGO Seasonal BrickHeadz Valentine's Bee (40270). After seeing all of the upcoming sets for the rest of the year, they actually don't look bad at all and to know that there are accessory builds to go along with the BrickHeadz themselves is a great selling point.

I firmly believe that BrickHeadz are an important part of LEGO's current portfolio, and they continue to surpass my expectations. This set in particular, as well as the rest of seasonal line, are a great example as you can buy it for yourself, a parent, a lover, or even just for parts! It is very versatile in its purpose, not to mention appealing in design alone.

This is such a cute little set. The finished model is a very ‘LEGO®' holiday set. In addition to being adorable, this set is a great parts pack. 140 elements for $10 (just over 7¢ per piece) and 11 extras! As usual, I'll probably be picking up a couple more, especially if they get marked down next month.
