Eight to 12 year olds is the market age range that Lego says is appropriate, but there are a lot of more mature Lego fans who would also enjoy this attractive new set. We’d say it is fine for any Lego enthusiasts; a great project for all the family or someone who likes RVs and wants a great looking display model.

Thumbs Up Features
With more than 750 individual pieces, this new Lego set is a bit more challenging than most of them but we are always up for a challenge! There is plenty of great detail including three mini-figures – a Mother, her son and a not so menacing brown bear.
You can take off the roof of the camper van to reveal the inside. Included in the interior are a toilet, tv, bed, kitchen area and couch. There are also barbecue accessories, suitcases and maps.
The camper van also tows a trailer and motorboat and there is a striped yellow canvas awning that doubles up as a fabric canopy for a deck on the second floor when you build the holiday home option.
When you build the Summer House you also get to build a little yellow jeep to park outside it, which we thought was a particularly nice touch.
Thumbs Down Features
All in all, this is a prime quality Lego build set and we enjoyed just about everything about it. We did feel that the Yacht was a little disappointing but the detailed camper van and the beautiful holiday house more than compensated for it.
Another change we would have made was the ability to display both the camper van and the summer house without needing to buy two sets.
We also thought it rather peculiar that there was no adult male mini-figure but this isn’t a deal breaker.
Value in a Nutshell
Lego’s e creator sets are probably their most value packed offerings, as you are given the option to build three different models. For fans who enjoy building brick sets rather than playing with them, they are especially good value for the price
We doubt whether many local bricks and mortar shops would stock such an item, particularly in smaller communitites. Your best bet would be to buy it direct from the LEGO online store or from another big online retailer such as Amazon.
And in Conclusion
Year in and year out LEGO is creating more and more stunning sets than the previous year, and we could end up spending a fortune on these beautiful brick-built models. The creator sets are without a doubt some of the most value packed and this Lego Creator Vacation Getaway set has plenty going for it.
