Give young firefighters a treat with a detail-rich fire truck construction toy set, featured in the new TV series. This cool LEGO® City 60231 Fire Chief Response Truck toy features a brick fire truck with detachable ladder, opening roof and a screen in the cab, an electrical box with buildable flame element and opening doors, a water cannon with water brick storage container, plus 2 minifigures. Give any LEGO builder an amazing building experience with Instructions PLUS, available in the LEGO Life app for smartphones and tablets. The easy-to-use, intuitive building instructions let them zoom, rotate and visualize their creation using the special ghost mode as they go. Instructions PLUS is also great for younger builders, guiding them through the building process for a greater sense of independence and achievement. Construction toy playset for boys and girls aged 5+ and for fans of LEGO® toys and kids of all ages.
Its nice to have a different style of fire vehicle, although I can see it being somewhat polarising for people, especially with a removalable hose and water tank. Whilst rated as 5+, the resident Mr 5 year old struggled with this build, so its on the harder side of city builds as least for the entry level age group (he refuses help on almost every other city build). Only one play issue: the struts that hold the ladder onto the roof are held in place by 1x1 round bricks, every time Mr 5 pulls the ladder off, the entire rear structure pulls off with it and then needs repairing. Perhaps a city vehicle should be a little more robust? Only other thing, the firehose is slightly thicker than a winch rope, would prefer something thicker (albeit would need to be shorter then). However lots of storage doors to play with and lots of minifig handhelds, overall nice build.
