"As the mom and primary builder I love all the little details. Love the keurig and the fan in the police station. I really liked the use of tiles for some of the exterior walls which gives a much nicer look than plain brick.
As for play value my kids have had tons of fun with this set. I did have to modify the roof to make it removable as my kids always took it apart to play inside the office and then I had to put it together every time. It would have been nice if it was designed that way right out of the box. I would have liked the Jail to be completely enclosed but my kids don't seem to mind and love hooking the removable wall to the boat.
Overall I really like this set and would recommend especially if you can find it with some sort of discount as I feel the retail price is a but much."
