CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
This amazing, fully-functional Tow Truck is equipped just like the real thing.
This is not the tow truck you call when your car breaks down. This is the tow truck you call when your tow truck breaks down. Designed for heavy-duty lifting and towing, the Tow Truck is among Lego's most challenging, intricate model sets and is intended for serious model builders. It's a part of Lego's Technic line, which shows simplified versions of the workings of real heavy duty machines, such as farm and construction equipment. The set comes with 1,877 pieces and six full-color, illustrated instruction booklets that diagram tow truck model construction in 78 steps and the alternate model heavy-load truck in 95 steps, with many ministeps along the way. With that many pieces, it would be a good idea to grab a plastic portable organizer to make construction and storage a whole lot easier. Its real-world features include rear stabilizers, a working crane, rack-and-pinion steering, and a six cylinder engine with moving pistons and fan. Inside the box you'll find 25 part bags, 2 plastic rods, 10 plastic tires, a sheet of 20 decals, and the instruction booklets. Also included is an illustrated block inventory with part numbers, in case you need to ever re-order a replacement block. --Porter B. HallSee all Product description

The tow truck is beautiful: hefty and intimidating, fun to play with and a nice display piece - if you have room for it. Compared to the Lego 8421 mobile crane you get more value for money: same number of parts for a lower price but the building takes longer and the secondary model is outstanding.
Only a few minor setbacks: Prepare to spend a couple of hours sorting the bricks, which comes unsorted in twenty-plus plastic bags. And some of the red beams were from different production batches and had distinct color variations, but it helped to sort them into similarly colored groups.
As far as how good this is for kids... definatly wouldnt recomend this for any kids under the recommended age. Even those above it should have plenty of patience, and probably a mom or dad there to help sort through all the tiny little pieces.
