Lego Back to the Future Time Machine Review
Back to the Future was released in cinemas in the 1980s but children are still enjoying this movie today. If your child is one of them, then this set is a must-have. Even if they’ve never heard of the movie, they can still have fun with this Lego set – and they’ll probably want to see the movie when they’re done, giving you a chance to revisit what may be an old favourite for you.
The main parts of the DeLorean Time Machine Lego car are designed to resemble the original car from Back to the Future. This set is part of Lego’s Cuusoo range and was requested by Lego customers. The minifigures resemble the main characters Marty and Doc in the movie, making this Lego set unique. Even many adults will like this set and build it as a collectible to be showcased.
The pieces fit together perfectly as you’d expect from Lego. The car is imaginatively designed with plenty of moving parts. Along with the figures it creates an impressive scene that’s fun to play with or keep on display.
There are two things you should be aware of with this Lego set. First, for fans of the movie, as you can see from the photos here you don’t have a lot of stickers to give the car the colour scheme of the one in the movie. Kids may not notice this or care but collectors might. The second thing to note is that the space inside the the DeLorean Time Machine car is too low for the minifigures to sit without adjustment. They have to take their hair off to sit in the DeLorean and travel in time – making it a truly hair-raising adventure!
Overall, this Lego Back to the Future building set is a great opportunity for further developing the fine motor skills of your child, as well as engaging his or her mind in imaginative and creative play. The car has plenty of movable parts and offers a lot of fun play opportunities for children. Recommended.
