After I have done my review on Lego 4996 Beach House, I decided to see if my 4 years old kid can handle the regular lego and graduated from Duplo, and to my surprise, needing less than 20% of help, she can build all three models mainly by herself, a good test of patience and bricking skill, despite having some challenges along the way.

But the small bricks are really difficult for her, especially on removing them, it was painful even for adults to pull out the closely aligned 1 x 1 tiles!

By the way, many creator sets are great for family fun and provides good value as they provide multiple models, this beach house is excellent in these aspects, all three models are fine, but the primary model obviously is the best. And 4996 is affordable too, good for play and good for parts as well.

Anyway, my kid is not giving up on Duplo yet, and I have no plans to let her touch some of my high value sets, such as those new Starwars sets...

According to this page - http://games.lego.com/en-gb/FAQ/default.aspx :

General: How do I take the tiles off the LEGO Dice?
Use the wrench tool including in the game to remove the tiles more easily.

I know the tiles aren't coming off dice, but in general, as a fellow AFOL, I understand the pain and frustration involved with removing tiles and separating LEGO pieces. I suggest looking through your sets to find one of these: http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/4006 and purchasing a few lego separators if you haven't already.
