Recommendation: meh average 4.5 / 5 from 4 reviews

My daughter is four and adores Lego Elves. This was the second set we put together from the Spring 2017 line (the first was the Gondola). She and I built this set together over several sittings, and she did most of the building herself with coaching from me. There's a surprising amount of interest going on here for a set containing only 224 pieces. We were excited to acquire a minifig of the new character Sophie Jones. You also get a creepy-cute goblin and Mr. Spry the Squirrel, which will thrill your child if s/he already has Mrs. Spry from the 2015 line. The little squirrel shop even has a photo of Mr. & Mrs. Spry on the wall! The three structures to build are a portal, the squirrel shop and a vehicle with a net in which Sophie gets captured. Ok, maybe that's a little scary, but the vehicle had my daughter giggling and playing for an hour. It's hard to tell from the photos, but when you roll the little vehicle, the net moves up and down automatically! Very cool. The squirrel shop itself has a lot of cute little touches like tiny acorns and the adorable squirrel living quarters upstairs. It's a pretty cool build for such a small structure, and it complements the architecture of the other Lego Elves sets nicely. We give this set five stars for fun and playability.

Recommendation: meh average 4 / 5 by Daniel

Many of the previous Elves sets at this price point have been more scenery based. It is therefore a delightful change to find included a fully independent structure that is excellent to boot. Far from feeling like it lacks heft, Mr. Spry's shop is fully built and will look right at home in an Elves village, especially if one has The Secret Marketplace from last year's line. Fans of the Jones family will also enjoy this set's inclusion of the newly introduced Sophie. A variety of useful parts provide some appeal to AFOLs, but likely not enough to entice non-Elves fans into the fold. If, however, you have two daughters, you may find a rabid fan of Sophie in your younger daughter as I did.

Recommendation: no average 7 / 10 by Rusty

As a set that tells a story it's great and I would happily recommend buying it for kids. It also has some interesting figures and elements. On a slightly negative note its diminutive size kinda of leaves you a feeling a little underwhelmed (maybe being over critical). However, at the price point it packs a punch and you can't argue against that.

For a set of this size, The Capture of Sophie Jones is a lot of fun. I'd definitely recommend it for existing fans of the theme, but in all honesty it's my least favourite of this years Elves sets. For anyone looking for an introduction to the Elves theme, I'd suggest the smaller 41181 Naida's Gondola & the Goblin Thief as a better introduction to the theme. That's not to say this is a bad set, more that the quality of this year's Elves sets are so high that there is a lot to live up to.
