I recently started collecting Lego sets with my son - whether you keep them in the box to display or build the set, they are terrific collectible items.What I Like:The "Hidden Side" series combines the challenge of building a Lego set (this Lighthouse of Darkness set has over 500 pieces!) with augmented reality play (via a free smart device app) once the set is completed. Really a cool concept! I like that Lego is looking into and developing technologies to keep today's children engaged - from Technic to City to Friends to Hidden Side, there really is a Lego set for kids of any age!The set includes the Lighthouse, a wave runner and four mini-figures with a few accessories.What I Would Change:I have a few of the "Hidden Side" sets and this is not our favorite - The Newbury Haunted High School set that we bought last year was a much more impressive set and completed model (and to be fair cost nearly twice as much)Still a great set - recommend!

The Lighthouse of Darkness is another interesting Hidden Side set. I love how the rocky jetty and dock area has been done. The BURP and other elements perfectly combine to create a rugged looking base from the Lighthouse. Although the actual Lighthouse is a little cramped, it kind of needs to be in order to incorporate the gloomed elements, which I would say offers more playability than a larger interior would.
