If you have been wondering how the newly released #71006 LEGO The Simpsons House looks like up close and personal, check out this full review by the BrickShow. I always found video-reviews helpful as you can see the LEGO model and minifigures from various angles, and also experience the functionality and moving parts of a set. And of course you get a better perspective of the size and scale of the set too. 🙂
I’m not a big Simpsons fan, but I really like the doll-house nature of this set. It can easily be re-populated with regular LEGO minifigures or even LEGO Friends figures if you are not into The Simpsons. I can imagine kids playing with this for hours, and adults decorating and expanding on it to fit their creativity. There is nothing like a good old-fashioned doll-house! In fact, doll-houses have been a favorite of both children and adults going all the way back to the Egyptians five thousand years ago!
Although some people have expressed concerns that The Simpsons is not a particularly child-friendly show, the set itself is brilliant and there is nothing inappropriate about it; it’s just a well-detailed family house with some minifigs and lots of play-features. In fact, it’s a refreshing break from all the shooting, chasing and gun-toting minifigures found in most LEGO sets these days. And of course if you are a Simpsons fan you just had your wish come true, so all the better!
I’m very curious to see how popular the LEGO Simpsons House is going to be, but I think it is a hit. Even if for some reason it won’t get received well, I really hope that LEGO will continue making such sets with so much detail and playability. I would love to see more LEGO City sets like this, as well as a LEGO castle and even a space-station that is built up as much as the LEGO Simpsons House.
