LEGO® Set 4840 – The Burrow

Rochelle September 15, 2015 @ 5:13PM

The Burrow is one of my absolute favorite sets from the Harry Potter collection! It is incredibly detailed and has tons of surprises for you to discover.

The house resembles the house as it was seen in the movies. This set includes Bellatrix Lestrange and Fenrir Greyback, along with the fire that they used to attack the Burrow. This is a scene that was in the sixth movie but not in the book, and I like that LEGO® included it so you can choose whether or not you want to recreate that scene. There is even a lever so you can fling fire at the home.

It seems like every inch of the Burrow has fun details. The first floor of the house has the kitchen and dining room. It is here that you will find a grandfather clock, lamp, dishes, a sink, and drawers with eating utensils in them, among other things. There are two doors leading outside - one goes to the pig pen and the other goes out the front door.

The second floor is Ron Weasley's bedroom, a room that he shares with Harry Potter when Harry visits. You can tell when Harry is visiting because his trunk is in Ron's room, and has Hedwig sitting on the trunk. Inside Harry's trunk you will find a sock. Why a sock? Because socks are a running joke throughout all the books.

Ron's room has bunk beds and there is also a poster of the Chudley Canons over one of the beds. Sadly, you can't see it from my pictures but it's a wonderful detail that Harry Potter fans will appreciate because we all know that the Chudley Canons are Ron's favorite Quidditch team.

The third floor is another bedroom. Given that Ginny is included with this set I'm assuming that it is her room. There is a bed, lamp, and a copy of the Quibbler, a publication by Luna Lovegood's Xenophilius.

There is also a fireplace that is part of the magical floo network. The minifigs can use the fireplace to travel to other Harry Potter LEGO® sets. I've included pictures of how this works below.

There are a lot of minifigs in this set! Harry and Ron are available in other sets but some were new to this one. In fact, this is the only set where you can get Molly and Arthur Weasley, Bellatrix, and Ginny. Fenrir is only available in this set and Diagon Alley (2nd Edition). This is a must-have set for collectors who want minifigs that they can't get with any other set!
