Review:
The LEGO City Coast Guard Patrol and Tower offers kids hours of seafaring fun both during and after construction. The 444-piece kit contains a large floating patrol boat with controls accessible through the roof, a lifeguard tower with crane on a rock base, mini figures and lots of accessories. But it's the detailed accessories included with this set that really steal the show, including a miniature life ring, life jackets for the figures to wear, spotlights and radar on the tower, and scuba gear for the divers such as flippers, binoculars and "chainsaws." This particular LEGO product has the added benefit of being a functional bathtub or pool toy once complete. Easy-to-follow instructions and quick results deliver a nice sense of accomplishment in a short time for young shipwrights.
