Top ReviewsBest. LEGO set. Ever?

As a hardcore Simpsons fan who has been watching since the Tracey Ullman Show days, I knew I would be getting this set. At 2,523 pieces, it is the largest LEGO set that I own by a fairly significant margin. (The next largest one I own is the Haunted House, which clocks in at 2,064 pieces.) I milked it for all it was worth; eschewing the numbered bags that are designed to make the build quicker and easier, I dumped them all into a bin, put on some classic Simpsons episodes, and spent the next three days building this beast. (My estimate for the total build time is about fifteen hours. If that sounds too daunting, you could easily knock off a few if you used the numbered bags. I don't get to enjoy a massive build like this too often, so I wanted to string it out.)
It's difficult to get the size of the set across in the photos; it really is quite large. Devoted Simpsons fans will immediately notice that the interior layout is not 100% show-accurate; unfortunately, the realities of toy production mean that making the house larger and more accurate would have resulted in a set that was easily twice as expensive, and $200 is really pushing it as it is. All the most important rooms are present, though the scale can seem a bit small at times. The kitchen is particularly crowded. It must also be noted that the layout is not consistent on the show itself-- note, for example, the magic door in the kitchen that leads to various places depending on the needs of the episode in question-- so it's tough to hold any inaccuracies against this set.
Once you get past that, you can appreciate the amazing detail in the set. Things like the workbench and tool set in the garage, the dented fender on Homer's car, the posters and comics scattered around Bart's room, the vacuum cleaner tucked into an alcove behind the staircase, and the "Property of Ned Flanders" labels on the various items Homer has "borrowed" over the years propel a great set into truly legendary territory.
Most of the issues I have with the set are related to the minifigures that are included. Obviously, including the family is a no-brainer, and Ned Flanders is a similarly obvious inclusion. However, the family has a sleepy/stoned appearance that just makes them look odd, with the exception of Maggie. (I have the Collectible Minifigure Series Maggie displayed inside my house; the one included with the house is identical, but has normal wide-open eyes.) It's understandable that TLG felt the needed to differentiate these minifigs from the ones included in the CMF series, but one would think that such details as Homer's tie and Marge's apron were enough. As things are, anyone who buys this set and skips or cannot find the CMF versions will be stuck with less desirable versions of most of the family, and that's a bit of a bummer. Maggie is fine, as noted, and Flanders is okily-dokily.
Another drawback is the absence of the family pets. (At least they are now available in the Simpsons CMF series two, but it honestly kinda sucks that we have to buy another Lisa and Maggie to get Santa's Little Helper and Snowball II. Lisa is a neat variant, but Maggie is exactly the same.) It should also be noted that the floors are completely covered with tiles, making it tough to get minifigs to stay in place. This can be easily fixed by simply popping off a tile so you can lock a minifig's feet in place, so it's not a big deal. On the contrary, the tiled floors look sharp, and I'm glad TLG made the decision to do them like that.
This set is definitely greater than the sum of its parts; its drawbacks are few, and its positives are innumerable. So, is it the greatest LEGO set ever produced? In my opinion, it is not, though it is a solid top ten, possibly even top five, contender. That said, putting aside all objectivity, it is my second-favorite set of all time. (For the record, my all-time favorite LEGO set remains the Haunted House.) It's a must-have for hardcore Simpsons fans and lovers of great LEGO sets alike. I feel this is destined to become one of those "holy grail" sets in the years to come, so if you're interested, better get one while you can!
This is perfect for a child facing a long hospital stay or an illness!! LOVED IT

This is so AWESOME!! We purchased this for our 11 year old daughter whom has been fighting cancer for the last three years. She had a bone marrow transplant and has been in the hospital more than she has been out. This is perfect for someone who enjoys a challenge and needs something they can do while in bed. I highly recommend this as a gift for a child that has to spend time in the hospital. The bonus is that once they have completed building the set, they can play with it for days. It includes the entire family and even their car! Plus tons of small details that make it very playable and extra special
So Much Fun!

This set is so much fun to build. I love how it has so many pieces and very detailed. It took me about three days to finish, around 2-4h a day. I really didn't want to finish so it would last longer. I ended up with many extra pieces.
What I don't like is how the kitchen is very small.
It looks great when displayed although it is huge. Meaning the depth makes it hard to fit in a shelf especially that you want to display the minifigures/mailbox in front. So what I did is open the house and make it look like a bigger one which made it look better where you can see the back kitchen door.
Other than that I'm looking forward to getting the kwik-e-mart on May because I know it would be as fun to build as this one.
If you're planning to build this with others as in each person build a part that would be hard to do. It comes with three instruction manuals, but it is actually more like part 1- 2 and 3 so it is hard to start with 2 if you have not finished 1. Well you can manage, but I don't see it being much fun.
Great for Simpsons fans. Fun build

This was a very fun build. Built with my nephew. It took several hours but was very satisfying!
The rooms have enough character that they're easily identifiable as Bart's or Lisa's. The house swings open and the roof is removable for easy access and viewing inside. Each figure is highly detailed.
Take a star off as it's crazy expensive.
Great and Challenging Set.

I got this set as a birthday gift for my 7 yr old son and he was definitely excited when he opened the present. The set is expensive, but I've always had good experience with the quality of Lego products. The step by step instruction pics were easy enough for my kid to follow. There's a lot of pieces and I enjoyed helping him assemble it as much as he did. I wanted a set that was challenging and this took us a couple of weeks to complete. Of all the toys that I bought for my kids, Lego seems to be the one toy that they always go back to. The only thing I hate is that there's there's little Lego pieces throughout the house.
Can't go wrong with this set. At all.

Simpsons. LEGO. That's a winning combination any way you slice it. I guess kids of today might scratch their heads as to why the Simpsons have such a following when today's series isn't much to write about, but for my generation who were lucky enough to have seen the Simpsons at the top of their game (thanks to truly excellent writing), the Simpsons is a true pop cultural hallmark.
The product itself is fantastic, and the set seems to have been designed precisely with series fans in mind. You can see it in the little details like the "El Barto" graffiti and "Property of Ned Flanders" mark, the latter of which is a long-running gag of the series.
I'm guessing some people will find fault in that the car can't sit the whole family inside it, but that's being unreasonable as there are trade-offs when designing functional vehicles vis-a-vis that vehicle's scale when ranged against a minifig. Sure, they could've made a car that seats all Simpsons members, but then you'd have an unusually large car, which would then lead to an unusually large garage, which would have forced the house to be bigger, and then the minifigs would now look dwarfish.
The same limitations apply to the house in that it isn't 100% accurate to the floor plan as seen in the actual TV series. The rooms are more cramped, but again, the designers had to keep the overall house size proportional to the minifigs themselves. So, no, I won't dock points for that.
The only thing that bothers me is the cool expression on the minifig's faces save for Ned and Maggie. Since the head pieces are moulded, there aren't alternate expressions available as there are for other minifigs with the standard head piece. Having more "alert" eyes for Bart, Homer, Lisa, and Marge would've improved the product. LEGO does make a Simpsons standalone minifig series where the Simpsons have wide-open eyes.
I can't wait for the second Simpsons standalone minifig series to be released so that Santa's Little Helper and Snowball could complete the household.
In the meantime, I've taken the liberty of placing all the series one minifigs in this house so there'd be one big Simpsons house party going on. Good times.

I grew up on the Simpsons. Imagine how excited I got when I saw this set on Amazon. Actually Amazon is the first place I learned of LEGO's Simpsons product line. Up to this set I only bothered to buy Creator sets.
This fine set made a great addition to my collection of Creator sets. Not to mention this set is full of bricks with high build-your-own creation value. Not that you'd want to take it back apart in the first place. The rooms are beautiful.
This is a faithful recreation of the Simpsons house. I can't wait to have all of Springfield.
Tippity Top didley building

Not much to say other than I really enjoyed this build. My kids also enjoyed this build and it kept them engaged (read quiet) for several hours. The minifigs are top heavy and keep falling over so it take some positioning to keep them just right. I really enjoy having the Ned Flanders minifig. didley!

I was hesitant to purchase because the price but I have enjoyed every minute of putting this together. There are so many minor details that are fun to put together. I am not a Lego's collector and have not watched the Simpsons for years, but to me, this was well worth the splurge. I have been taking my time and figure it will probably take me a total of 6 to 7 hours to complete.
so much detail and so much fun working on it
