PRODUCT: LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Mansion (www.lego.com)LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Mansion

DESCRIPTION: An 860-piece LEGO construction playset from the Scooby-Doo range which is based on a spooky mystery mansion. Includes a buildable mansion with clock tower and conservatory, motorbike with sidecar, and man-eating plant! Also includes 6 x minifigures (Shaggy, Velma, Daphne, Vampire/Bob Oakley, Ghost/Blusestone the Great, Black Knight/Mr Wickles, plus Scooby-Doo), plus lots of features, accessories, weapons and sticker detailing. The mansion measures over 14" (38cm) high, 12" (32cm) wide and 5" (14cm) deep. Suitable for children aged 6 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Lego have done it again (and they would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for those meddling kids!), with their take on the Scooby-Doo Mystery Mansion! Perfect for those kids (and maybe adults!) that love both the original series and the construction sets, the Mystery Mansion has been lovingly designed to recreate an awesome set for the Mystery Inc. team to sleuth through.

Seemingly based around a decrepit gothic mansion, the house incorporates all of the features expected of a “haunted” house. The main building is all askew, with cobwebs at the windows and significant issues with structural integrity and is topped by a spooky clock tower that houses a special rotating mechanism to allow monsters to appear at the balcony! Adjoined to the building is a spooky greenhouse with smashed panes of glass that obviously is home to carnivorous plants.

LEGO Scooby-Doo Mystery Mansion2Inside there are various “hidden” passages and hidey holes for criminals and monsters alike to stash things and obviously a kitchen for the obligatory Scooby snacks. As well as all this there is even a trap mechanism!

The level of detail by Lego is excellent with lots of attention to details where it matters, with planks over windows, warped window frames and jagged bits of glass where windows have been smashed. Even the roofline fits the theme with jagged spires and broken roof tiles.

Beyond the fun of building this great LEGO model, there are figures for Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Daphne and Velma, as well as the monsters needed to play out a full series of adventures (a black knight, vampire, carnivorous plants and a really cool glow in the dark ghost – our personal favourite).

In addition there are loads of props such as gold bullion, maps, magnifying glasses, different foods, skulls, pumpkin heads and a coffin amongst other to give a really authentic spooky feel to the play set, as well as a motorcycle and sidecar for characters to rush to the rescue (or for baddies to make a quick getaway!).

All in all we really love this LEGO playset! It will really appeal to all audiences that have loved the Scooby-Doo series and will definitely bridge the age gap between young and old as they recreate their favourite shows.

BAD POINTS: None, other than as with any such set there are a large number of small pieces which could easily get lost!

PRICE: £69.99
