5.0 out of 5 stars You can never have enough wheels March 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
OK, I admit it, I vacuum up a lot of Legos. When I notice I've done this, I try to go through the dust cup and fish them out. However, sometimes, when it is really full, I just can't bring myself to do it. This leads me back to the title of this review, you can never have enough wheels, or axles for that matter. When you buy a Lego set that has a car in it, they don't give you extra wheels, so if you have vacuuming *issues* like I do, you NEED this set.

This set comes with 3 different sized wheels (and hubs), I know the description says 4, but it is wrong. You will also find fixed sized axles, and half axles that can be placed on a car as far apart as you want them to be so that you can make cars of varying widths. In addition, you will find windshields, steering wheels, flat plates for creating the base of the car and little angled pieces for putting on the sides of the tires to make it look like they have fenders.

You will need additional Lego pieces for creating the rest of the car(s). For most of us parents that won't be a problem, just lift up the couch and sweep out all the Lego pieces that have migrated under there. I'm sure you will find enough to create the rest of the bodies for these cars. The enclosed pieces are enough to make 12 chassis at one time. In addition to the crazy cars my boys have created using these pieces, they have also used this set for replacement parts for all their police and fire vehicles from the Lego City sets.

Pay close attention to the product picture so you know exactly what you are getting. If you do not have lots of Legos already at your house and you are looking for a complete set for building vehicles, you may want to look at a different product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome December 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Partial list of contents: Qty (4) wheels that are 1-1/8" diameter, Qty (28) wheels that are 13/16" , Qty (16) wheels that are 9/16", Qty (4) "small" windshields, and Qty. (4) "large" windshields, Qty. (12) steering wheels. Numerous grey colored plates for car chassis, colored pieces for fenders, axels. This set only includes the parts to create the "frame" of the car (i.e. wheels, windshields, chassis, fenders, axels,and steering wheels). You'll need additional Lego pieces to create the bodies of the cars. The product description listed on Amazon says there are four wheel sizes, but I think that's a mistake and there are only three sizes.

My sons (ages 6, 4, 3) enjoy creating new cars for their Lego men. Or, they simply attach wheels to a Lego man so he can roll. I think these are great because kids can use their creativity to build simple cars without the blueprints of more complex Lego sets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wheels make everything better March 5, 2012

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In our house, the 4 adults play with legos more than the one child. We had created many things with the base set that the child got for Christmas, but we were starting to come to the end of the possibilities. I realized that what we really needed was wheels and axles. This pack is awesome! Several different sizes of wheels/tires. Comes with a bunch of thin chassis pieces. The day this came in the mail, we spend several hours creating 10 - 12 vehicles. Our lego love is renewed.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the Lego- and Car-Loving Kid August 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
Kit has three different size wheels, three types of axles, and different size bases to make so many different car variations! We bought two for my son's birthday party. Each guest got to make their own Lego car to take home as the party favor. It was a big hit! The only thing we added were a few more colorful pieces to make the vehicles more vibrant. Otherwise, this has everything you need.

My boys love legos and this set is a welcome addition. No more intense negotiations and arguing over who gets the wheels. There are few things more fun than seeing your children creating something. This set has all the pieces that are in high demand when children are in the lego building business.

I bought these for my Grandsons and they love them. They are a great addition to our sets of legos and have added hours of fun. For all building projects that you always seem to need more pieces for this is a great purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy the brick set first! December 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
There seems to be some confusion for some people as to just what the Lego Education line is. They're classroom sets, modules teachers buy for use in science and math lessons with multiple kids. This is the expansion pack that adds wheels to your bricks. If your kids don't have bricks yet, you have to start with the brick set.

Lego Education seems to be the cheapest way to get open ended Lego, where there are no instructions, no "right" way, no one model to build with them.

This set has three different sizes of wheels, with axles to match, a handful of windshields, loads of steering wheels, and some base plates. Some random bricks frequently used in building vehicle frames. All the usual Lego quality. Best price.
