Don't forget to take out the trash!
" This is (in my opinion) one of the best CITY sets out there. My first reaction when I saw this set was "I'm getting that today!" Who couldn't like an orange truck?
Pro's
Detailed design
Pleasing color
Minifig
Hand truck
Trash can
Rubbish
Broom
Only 5 stickers
Cool pieces
Lots of lights
Cons
Minifig head is too common
Back might fall off
Rubbish could fall out of back accidentally
Overall, the set is well worth its money, and with only two possible problems it will work well for your needs.

Sound the siren!
" This set is a great addition toyour LEGO city.
It doesn't quite look like the fire engines you see in real life, but its design is streamlined and pleasing to the eye.
Pro's
Two firefighters! One has the air tank and respirator!
Lots of equipment
Cool raft
If you combine it with the off road fire rescue, you can use the two different trailers interchangeably.
Nice lights
Has outriggers so it won't tip over
Con's
Instructions come in 3 different parts so you might lose them (I did, even thought I take keeping the instructions very seriously)
Overal it is a very good set to have, as you don't have to buy the entire fire station to keep your city safe.

Enjoy a lovely day on the beach.
" This set is very nice, if you are looking for a good starting point to a lego city. After all what is a city without houses? The house is built to minfigure scale, but lacks interior space. You can also rebuild it into a small two story rambler, or a three story condominium, to fit your needs.
Pro's.
Lots of windows and doors
Good details
Tiles, poultry, barbecue, umbrella, mailbox, tree, satelite, etc.
Strong structure
Top removes without breaking
Yellow is a very nice color
Con's
Lacks interior space
Out door seating area:
Pole might bend, slick benches
Would be nice if it included a minifig, but hey you probably have a few lying around.
Overall, good set, could knock a $3-4 dollars off the price, but the price is good for all the great pieces.
Have fun. "

The two towers on the back might fall off.
Too bad it's sold out. I might have bought another one. "

Best fire product out there.
" O.K. You're looking for something in the line of fire. HA-HA. You should reach for this set,
as it is extremely well worth it's $10, and brings you a lot of really great pieces.
First the truck:
Pro's
Easy build
Nice lights
Nice shape
Holds 2 pieces of equipment
Con's
Be cooler if doors opened.
Trailer:
Pro's Con's
Good connection to truck
Very accurate design
Holds about 8 pieces of equipment
Con's
A little harder to build
Firefighter:
Pro's Con's
Detailed uniform
Comes with respirator/mask and air tanks
Con's
Should come with gloves
Face is fairly common
Stuff:
Pro's
Buzzsaw
Axe
Removable flood light
Flashlight
Walkie talkie
Fire extinguisher
Respirator/mask
Air tanks
Hose
Con's
Hose might get stuck but is easy to remove if you face it towards the back.
As you can see, NON of the cons are a sufficient reason not to buy this set. I just have to adress everything good AND bad with this set. It is a shame this set did not make it into the holiday catalog. I got it last year for Christmas, and have never stopped playing with it.
Hope this helps you buy the set! "

Great set!
" If you want to add to your police station, or if you can't afford the police station, then this is the set to buy.
Pro's
Walkie talkie.
Stickers (This doesn't have to be a police motorcycle, now does it? If you don't like little tiny stickers having to line up just right, improvise!)
Kickstands.
Con's
Should have handcuffs.
The police officer is fairly common, but still really cool if this is your first one.
Price:
The price is right. You get a mini-fig, and a motorcyle.
Overall satisfaction:
A wonderful little addition to your collection.
Hope this helps!

Great buy.
" This plane is a great buy. The big pieces make a fast build, and are correctly sized for the plane. All the "problems" can be remedied with pieces from your own collection. It still won't float, but it is a great plane. The plane can be made custom for all your different adventures. As for the price, it's really good for all the fun you'll have with it. "
