Quick Summary:
Pros
  • Good variety of parts, such as hinge pieces
  • New grey Bunny with new face print
  • Alternate and combined building instructions available
  • Economical means to attain this rare pet
Cons
  • color selection is a bit weak
Detailed Review:
The best part of this set is the bunny.  It's a new color and also has a new face print, making this set worth the price alone.

The pieces are above average.  I can never get enough hinge plates and profile bricks.  The medium nougat color inclusion was a welcome surprise too.  But, all-in-all the color palette is a bit on the drab side compared to the other two Series 2 Animal packs.  However, I can see an Easter color theme here with the inclusion of lavender and yellow so I guess it's not so bad.  I think Poodle's Little Palace set just wow'd me so much, I can't over that fact.
I'll mention again, one thing I really like about this year's Animal packs is that the instruction booklets provide a picture of an alternate build and a combined build (all three series 2 sets together).  For last year's Series 1 sets, we didn't find out about those instructions until well after they were released.  This year it's hard to miss.  Building instructions to the alternate and combined builds are also available at: lego.com/friends/animals 


This set failed to impress me as much as the other two, but it's still worth purchasing for the parts and of course the new pet.

This set is the weakest of the three in my opinion, so I will rate this set a 7.5 out of 10
