Recommendation: meh 4.8 / 5 from 10 reviews

My son absolutely loves LEGOs and was so excited to get the Hidden Side LEGO set! It comes with over 200 pieces and allows him to build his own set and then scan it and play to catch the ghosts. I love the creativity sparked by LEGO within my son, and he enjoys hours of fun building and rebuilding different sets!

Recommendation: meh by Flynn

This is a quick, fun build, but if you are looking for something a bit more complicated this might not be the set for you. However, it's sure to please younger builders and parts junkies. In particular, I really like Parker's new hairpiece, the black seaweed and the medium azure branches. The minifigures are quite nice and the combo of those plus the plant pieces make this a great set for those of us that mainly collect sets for their interesting parts.

Recommendation: no by CapnRex101

Hidden Side has yielded an outstanding selection of unusual buildings and vehicles but 70433 J.B.'s Submarine is among the weaker examples. The minifigure selection is good and I like certain aspects of the underwater scenery, although I believe there was potential for more detail and this environment provides little evidence of its location underwater.
