We have now got all the dragon sets apart from the Secret Market Place. The Fire Dragon set is the best so far and well worth the price tag. The fire dragon is considerably larger than the water dragon and very impressive when complete. I particularly like the water well, which you can change from blue water to green poison. If the dragon drinks the poison, she becomes evil and you can change the jewel on the dragon's head to show that this has happened. This simple scenario has fired my daughter's imagination and it is very pleasing to see her invent ways for the Elves to save the dragon and make her good again. As I have mentioned in other reviews it is great to see how interested my daughter is in how the various moving parts work, and I hope Lego can include more of these features in future sets.The following comments were written by my seven-year-old daughter:I am really interested that the lava moves so you can get into the cave. It is exciting because Zonya the dragon can hold someone at the end of her tail. Her wings are bigger than the water dragon's and she has jewels on her knees.

This is a fun LEGO Elves set that offers both construction and imaginative play. Once built, kids can pretend to enter the Lava Cave with the use of Azari's magic fire powers, discover the secret map, fly off for an adventure on Zonya's back, and more.

Recommendation: meh average 4 / 5 by Richard

The dragon has grown on me. I will aim to brick build a head some day. The selection of parts is fantastic for crafting a magical rocky landscape – you would need to extend your parts to be able to create a good tree.

The Shadow Fountain is great and I love the premise of turning poisoned water to pure water, and the lava cave, with its sliding mechanism and details of crystal rockfalls and toadstools are great. I really like how the Elves sets tie into an overall story, and this set offers lots of opportunity to reenact that story plus encourage children to make up stories of their own.

As the second-largest set of the spring 2016 Elves wave, the Fire Dragon's Lava Cave doesn't disappoint. Zonya the Fire Dragon is, I'd argue, one of the most impressive LEGO dragons we've ever had, with an amazing build and loads of personality. And while it'd be easy to dismiss the other scenery and landscaping of this set as filler, it actually turns out to be quite impressive, offering multiple play scenarios and foreshadowing the darker, spookier mood of this summer's Elves sets. Ultimately, while this set may be filled with fantastic parts, once you've put it together it might be hard to convince yourself to take it back apart!
