"Excellent helicopter that presents in person far better than I expected, Mr 4 year old was very happy indeed. The helicopter is bigger than the box suggests, very nice sleek design and bright colors. And a fun albeit simple build.
Considering it is part of the city range, I have three relatively minor criticisms that don't detract from the target audiences enjoyment.
(1) The recuse person cannot fit inside the helicopter, but getting it inside if it 'could' fit, would be fiddly anyways. (2) The cockpit is extremely basic, no seat, no control sticks, the back of the cockpit looks messy. (3) Super picky - the 'ambulance' decals on rear are exactly in the best place to hold the helicopter, not sure how long that last?
One thing I do really like is the lack of a winch, WHAT! you say? Yeah, well every other helicopter we have has one, and Mr 4 year loves them, loves hooking them onto things and running >>> that way. I get sick of repairing them. So for us at least less is more.
"Made with the substantial assistance of Mr 4 year old.
Overall its a good build and looks great. The build is a little repetitive, but when you have 4 legs that is forgivable. Anything with digging or grabbing functions always gets 5 stars from Mr 4 year old (he is easy to please).
A few minor criticisms;
The legs have minimal rotation, a greater range would have added greatly to its play use.
Also the Cab area on top of the legs does not rotate? This would have been an amazingly nice feature as he could pickup and rotate the boom arm / cab to load a vehicle of some sort. Well being lego some modifications are in order!
Purchased for nearly 50% RRP, so in that sense it was an amazing good deal, but rated its value based on RRP vs Parts."
