"My son and I finished with this build about an hour ago, he has been playing with it non-stop! The build was challenging but a lot of fun, everything went together, and more importantly stayed together, quite easily. The set itself is very durable and can take some hard play without shedding pieces! We both get a kick out of the flashing blue lights - they make sound too, though it is so quiet you can barely hear it. Lego hit it out of the park with this one, way to go!"
"After great success with the Mustang Fastback we bought the McLaren. The build was more detailed than the Ford but no problems for a 6 year old. The problem came after we finished - this is a car for the shelf, not for play. Unlike the Ford which survived many a drop and direct hit without a single block falling, the McLaren shed pieces every time we picked it up. The rear fin falls off, then the bumpers, then it goes downhill from there. Very cool car and a fun kit to put together, but better looked at than played with."
