Lovely set my grandson who is seven has just built it in around an hour. Really cute with the babies and good value .
40466 Chinese New Year Pandas isn't something I'd recommend easily, especially with so many other great new 2021 sets out on the market. But if you're a Brickheadz collector, or cute and cuddly builds, it could be worth considering if you're looking to fill up your cart on LEGO.com to qualify for free shipping or a gift with purchase.
Whether you celebrate the lunar festival or not, 40466 Chinese New Year Pandas is a wonderful model that is fun to build and looks so cute on display. It would make a perfect ‘good luck' gift (something we all need in 2021) or as a symbol of strength on your desk as you work from home.
This set would make a great addition to any BrickHeadz collection, and I sincerely hope that we see more wild animal families in the future. My only criticism is that I expected a slightly more integrated scene for the family to be displayed together, like the pet beds in some of the BrickHeadz Pets sets. The base for the adult fits other single-character holiday sets but leaves the babies on their stands isolated.
In the end the sets themselves are cute (well, for BrickHeadz) and will certainly please kids who love animals, but AFOLs who want to expand their collection with new parts will certainly pass on these sets.
Overall, it's nice to see LEGO expand on the the Lunar New Year celebration but the LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466) seem to be somewhat lacking something. The mother panda and her baseplate are the best things from it and I do like the detailing in the tree. They are cute and I have them displayed on my shelf but the price point seems a little high for what you get.
Pandas are cute and adorable and these blocky representations of them are not too bad either, although nothing particularly special or noteworthy. I suspect, therefore, that outside of Asia they will mostly appeal to BrickHeadz collectors and aficionados, such as myself.
