For my first build, I chose the pictured mountain cabin. This set exceeded my expectations. I was looking for some roofing pieces, but didn't want to use the pick-a-brick. A lego store employee recommended this to me. I was a little skeptical at first, as the set seemed a little boring, but the process of the building was fantastic.
The cabin is full of detail, and it's just challenging enough without being frustrating. The house opens up to reveal the interior, to which I added a few pieces of my own. This set really got my creativity going. I added to the waterfall, placed a stove in the cabin, and added a few additional trees, plants, and defined the land between the grass and the water with some smaller pieces. I also placed the set on a larger green mat, so that I had room to expand as inspiration struck. It's been over a month since I've built the set, and I can't bring myself to take it apart yet.

The "Mountain Hut" is less than 10 cents per piece! It can open in half, has a lot of brick built furnishings and has an ATV. Plus it has mountainous landscaping with a waterfall using translucent bricks and plates. It also has a crystal and an eagle, so the playability is endless.

Good Pieces, Good Model, Excellent Value
I think this model is pretty good, I especially enjoyed the pieces! TWO L.U.R.Ps That means Little Ugly Rock Pieces! They are kinda rare nowadays!And 10 tan Erlings! Tose are bricks that have one stud on the side. And it was a good price! Only $40 for 550 pieces! Nice job LEGO(r)! Maybe you could put a bit more detail....
I spent 6 hours not in a row building all 3 models, and built MY OWN MODEL!!!

Great set but missing 5 pieces
My son received this set as a gift & immediately started building it. He was quite disappointed when he found that 5 pieces were missing in the first configuration that he attempted. Luckily, he has a ton of Legos & was able to finish his build with pieces he had on hand, but he lost some of his enjoyment for the set with each missing piece. I've ordered replacements for the pieces from this website. Hopefully we don't find that there are more missing when he builds the other configurations.

Fun little build
Fun little build, couple of hours max, I really liked the mountain with the water fall. I learned a lot of techniques to use in MOC, and also there are three builds here which increases the value of the set. I really liked the water and ice on the mountain, the way it falls is realistic and fun for play.
My daughter (4) and I played a game with other minifigs, that they were tearing up the build every night and the minifig included needed to rebuild his house. It was a lot of fun.
I don't think an expert would like this build, but there are some fun pieces included, if you are an expert builder and have an extensive collection and fantastic technique this may not be a set you would like, but the labeling is accurate. this is a toy for 8 to 12 year olds or AFOL's new to the lego hobby. I loved it.
