Police Station

Police Station

Fall 2005 Toys
Ages: 5 & Up
Manufacturer: The LEGO Group
Price: $69.99
Review:
The age old game of cops and robbers comes alive in this multi-faceted set that includes 4 police officers, a robber, a police dog, a jail, a heliport, helicopter, paddy wagon, motorcycle, jail cell, control tower, and police station. The pieces are divided into separate bags that allow children to construct-and play with-individual portions of the station. One of our testers completed the heliport and helicopter first and spent a day or two playing just with those. Because the sub-sets fit together in a number of ways, children can create one scenario after another. Overall assembly is easy and simple enough for the average 5-year-old to complete in a short amount of time.

The set arrives complete with walkie-talkies, spotlights, a megaphone, antenna, video camera, radar dish, helmets with movable visors and an illuminating flashlight.
