"This is an amazing set - my son loves this 3-in-1 as it is just a bit bigger than 'minifigure' scale, so he mixes it in with his CITY series sets. The scale of this set alone therefore gives it that much more play value than it normally would have.
It is a bit more difficult than the simpler and smaller 3-in-1 sets, but that is not at all a detraction. These sets should be available in varying levels of difficulty. It is not difficult, just a bit more challenging for very young builders - ie: those a lot younger than the 'recommended' age :)
All 3 vehicles are great to play with, the working winch is fun, but the small details on all 3 vehicles is really what make them work: the big tires and solid axles on the 4x4, and the opening 'toolbox' on the hovercraft, for example.
Lego design team: please build more minifigure scale-ish 3-in-1 sets!!"
