There are good parts : the chimney, the barrel, the bat, the witch's hat,...

But I find that the cat is just for "belville" :twisted:

This set is very useful if you want a big army of witchs (it isn't frequent :mrgreen:)

Hoho, that's what an original Belville cat looks like:

Just to give you an impression.

what do you mean by that? that the cat should only be used for belville or... ? im kinda confused here.

Jojo: I think for Belville, the smaller cat represents a kitten, and the larger one a full grown cat, since they both in the same set:

does the larger cat have stud conntections on the bottom?

PS. i get the feeling this cat question might belong elsewhere, but oh well ;)

I'm sure you are right.

This is how it stucks:

Therefore this whole answer is set in brackets...

$2 for a useless fig and a couple of slope pieces? Alight, it has a barrel and a black cat, so I'll give it a 2/10, but that may be generous. If Willa wasn't so ubiquitous, I'd give it a higher rating, but I've got Willa's the way some people have mice.

For $2, this isn't so bad. Willa's torso and dress are actually quite useful, and the cat, barrel, and crystal ball are nice additions. I'd buy about $10 worth if they were still around.

Overall, 7.5/10

This is a small but good set. You get black slopes, a fireplace, a crystal ball :) and the witch.

I like this set. Why? Very simple: It stands inside my village and peasants can drop by and take a look into the future or buy some kind of love potion. Therefore I suppose it as a "civil" set and that's a rarity.

@ Glencaer

Yes, it's what I want say : this cat (or the kitten) should only be used for belville.

(excuse me if I am sometimes incomprehensible) :(

I bought this only for the figure and the cat. Looking back now, it was a very silly purchase. :roll:

But the black hat is nice. :)

The cat, the barrel, the wand and the bat – make this set very nice to have. The black witches hat has been given to my black wizard, the decorated slope has been given to a maiden, and the ugly witches head has been relegated to the bottom of the Lego box.

Overall it is a set you would be only one of. You would purchase the other bits on ebay or bricklink.

Rating: 5/10

I never had this set, but from the pictures, it looks linteresting. I would have gotten one, if I had had a chance.
