Unlike the 1st Tangled themed tower that was micro sized, this tower set is impressive for a mini-doll set. I purchased this set strictly for its scenic point of view for addition to my Disney collection. It has a very profound look of the location used in the film, It offers a great opportunity as a starter to enlarge and enclose it. The build was quite simple, yet satisfying. I can really see the playability value, however, I do feel there was a missed opportunity to add Mother Gothel to the set. The side builds are nice, especially the piano, music sheet, and rubber duck. I felt the price isn't that bad for a licensed set. I would recommend this set to anyone who enjoys the film, a fan of Disney, or has kids that enjoy LEGO as a whole.
The four floors of the tower, swing and tavern, plus two minidoll figures give plenty of scope for role play of this classic fairytale for its intended audience. The set has a handful of recoloured elements which will be of interest to a wider adult audience due to their more conventional palette, where these pieces had previously only been available in more whimsical colours.
While I really enjoy the original Creativity Tower, I prefer Rapunzel's new Tower. It's fun to see how LEGO's designs have changed over 6 years. While new parts add to that change, I think there has also been a shift toward more detail at the expense of larger play spaces. In the case of Rapunzel's tower, I think it is a change for the better. I love all the detail, and there is still enough room to pose Rapunzel throughout the tower engaging in different activities.
Looking at it from purely the target audience this seems to be a hit. Look at it any other way and it's just not that interesting. I found myself wishing for another Minidoll or two (and I hate minifigures!), or Maximus (the horse), especially to flesh out the Snuggly Duckling. And although I understand the restictions of a tall, thin building, the interior was just lacking detail, and ultimately playability.
