Review:
The Lego Police Headquarters is a large building set, with supplies to create a multi-story police office and prison, a prisoner van, a car, and a motorcycle. The set includes seven male mini-figures and dozens of tiny accessories for cops-and-robbers play sessions. The construction phase encourages mechanical skills and spatial relations; the details (such as keys next to the prison cells, and toilets in the cells) delight the children as they build. Once the set is complete, it offers opportunities for children to enter a safe world of imaginative play where there are good guys and bad guys, and the good guys are always right and always, always win.
