4954 Model Townhouse

4954 Model Townhouse

Fall 2007 Toys
Ages: 8 & Up
Manufacturer: The LEGO Group
Price: $69.99

The LEGO Model Townhouse set is a townhouse, a garage, and a car, or a street scene with a utility truck, or a school complete with playground and vehicle. The repetitive nature of the bricks in the walls makes this a set that is out of reach to an unassisted 5-year-old, but it is a great set for collaboration by a whole family of LEGO lovers. The three-in-one-set designs make this a set that can really be used; one doesn't feel guilty dismantling the first construction because more designs await. And after completing the company's suggested plans, the set opens the door (pardon the pun) to additional designs.
