I really enjoyed this build. The colours are fresh and rich which really adds to the look and feel. The AR is impressive for such an early level of use too.I am happy to see lego didnt lose sight of the prize which is the physical build. Going forward it would be cool to see a build that would be apart of a story and the AR would provide hints on how to reconfigure the blocks.

I loved this set for the science/spooky aesthetic, but be warned- this set is likely to cause upset children and annoyed parents. The app is only available f,or a limited set of phones and tablets (they are listed on Lego's site) but really that is academic. The app itself is unlikely to work once you have installed it. I have a google pixel and through reinstalling it multiple times and rebooting the phone I managed to get the AR part to work for a few hours. However, it eventually stopped working again. The theme is fun, but don't let your kids get into the app. It will produce frustration and misery. Also note- Lego sadly has a terrible track record of supporting their apps long-term. SIGH. Step up your game, Lego!

It may not be the most exciting of the Hidden Side sets, but it's a great taster of the what you can expect from the overall theme. I love the little features packed into such a small set, it may not have the same playability of some of the larger sets in the range; but if you wanted to give the theme go without heavily investing, this is the perfect set.
