"My son received this for his 6th birthday, and he had so much fun putting it together and playing with is since then. He loves to make the motorcycle crash and then load up the patient onto the stretcher and into the back of the plane. Overall, it's a great set and a nice addition to his growing Lego City collection."
"My son saw this set in a Lego store and asked for it as a birthday gift. He was super excited when he opened it, and wanted to get started right away. He actually worked through the first 6 bags himself with no help (although he requires that I be present to keep him company ha) which took him about 4-5 hours. He didn't lose interest at that point, but seemed to be wearing down and asked for my help, so we finished the last few bags together (which was basically the components for the actual volcano). It says this set is for 8+, but he just turned 6 and did really well with it. He has played with it almost continually since we finished building it 4 days ago. The volcano has a lever which enables you to pop lava rocks up causing an "eruption" (this is probably my son's favorite feature). He also really likes the drone. I would consider this set to be more on the challenging side for him compared to his other smaller sets, but definitely manageable and lots of fun!"
"My son (5 years old) and I are currently building our own Construction Lego City comprised of about 2 dozen City and Creator sets (and growing). We have built many Lego construction vehicles this summer, but this has been his favorite so far. The tracks on the bulldozer are individual pieces that you snap together (his mind was blown by this, and he thinks it's the coolest thing ever!:) which was great because it made it more challenging for him. I found it on sale, so it's a big hit all around!"
