Lego Simpsons House 71006 [Review]

The Lego Simpsons House was only revealed less than than two weeks ago and it’s already available for sale. The set includes 2523 pieces and retails for $199.99. You can order it right now from the LEGO Shop.

Here is my summary of the highlights of the set, which are elaborated in the review video below.


  • Minifigure heads are made of hard plastic (as opposed to the rubbery kind) and the printing is precise.
  • Colorful and detailed interior, each room is a vignette
  • Features some useful building techniques
  • Furnitures are removable and all rooms are tiled
  • Good price per piece ratio


  • It’s the only Simpsons set and it’s not cheap

This is an unusual set in that it doesn’t fit in line with the other sets by Lego. It is a licensed stand-alone exclusive that suits the tastes of serious builders. At the same time, the numerous details make this a great playset as well for the kids. The interior is the true highlight of the set, featuring numerous well-designed details and detachable furniture. The colorful pieces and tiles are great additions to one’s collection. I cannot think of flaws pertaining to this set except that it is pricey; even so, it contains enough pieces to justify the cost. Since this is a Lego exclusive, you will not be able to buy it for cheaper than the retail price, all the more reasons to get the set now.

    Oh no! How can there be no theme! As a collectible I need this set! As an unemployed student…I can’t afford this set! :-(

    Great review! But, unless I missed it, you left out the bathroom–(Ifeagan–that’s what’s behind the door) which IMO is the best designed ‘vignette’ in the whole house–the toilet paper roll is particularly ingenious. Also very impressed with the piano, BBQ and crib builds–as well as the great TV, well noted by you. I have many of the modular sets, but this is hands down my favorite Lego structure. Thank you!
