"This set not only looks great—it's so much fun to build! It uses several building techniques I've never seen before (such as in the stairs), and the attention to detail is amazing.
The information in the instruction booklet is interesting, and I like how it gives you fun facts about the part you're building while you're building it (e.g. facts about the buses on the page showing you how to assemble the buses).
The only 2 nitpicks I have for this set are: 1) The brown telescope pieces used as tree trunks don't show up well on the black background in the instructions, and 2) Attaching the 1x1 round plates to the 2x2 round plates when building the trees is difficult and hurts your fingers.
Those are my ONLY two quibbles, however. I cannot recommend this set highly enough!"
