Initial Reaction: Wow the box picture looked so exciting. Lets get building.
Pros: Easy to build and lovely big pieces for little hands to manage. Picture instructions are so easy to follow. Once build it isn't too huge and can be left assembled without taking up too much room. Flashing siren for the car is fabulous and realistic. The figures and motor vehicles add an extra dimension. All the little interior touches to the office and jail are great and hold kiddies interest for ages.
Cons: Tried and tried but couldn't find any.
Value for Money: Excellent.
Overall reaction: When this arrived, Caleb and I couldn't wait to get building. It took all of 15 mins to assemble and them Daddy, Caleb and I had literally hours of fun. The Squad Car and Helicopter were instant hits and the realistic touches to all the interiors are fabulous. Caleb has been playing with it for over a week now and makes a bee line for it first every day. The police set also has a Police Bike and Police truck which are sold seprately from the station so guess what our boy will be getting for his Birthday and Christmas this year?!
