#706 of Year 2 Lego 5891 Creator Apple Tree House

I've been itching to open this, just because it looks like such a great house.  The Creator line isn't part of the City line or the Modular houses, but the houses that are part of this line has never stopped being awesome.

The box is big and nice, and it's not the City box, so it doesn't have the blue border on both sides.  Instead, it has the sky background and the yellow strip at the bottom of the front framing the picture.  The back shows all 3 models with instructions inside the box and a few of the features of these models.

There's a parts count on the top of the box, as is usual for the Creator theme.  The box contains three instruction booklets, two base plates and ten unnumbered baggies.  What I do like about the baggies is that they are already sorted by colour and size.

The green baseplates are a bit lighter than usual, which was a surprise.  The alternate models include a nice bungalow...

... and a two storey tower.  The main model is a nice suburban house with a garage.

Building was straightforward, and thanks to the pre-sorting by Lego, it was relatively painless.

The final model is nice - it has a basketball hoop complete with a flat basketball...

and a lawnmower.  There are quite a bit of details on the outside including the mailbox and the hanging lamp by the front door.  The garage and main doors are openable, and the first storey above the main door can be removed to view the insides.  However, the insides consists of the stairs... and nothing else.  It was a bit of a disappointment.

The design is nice though, but the odd choice of baseplate means that it doesn't fit in with the rest of my city.  Oh well.
