Top Customer Reviews
There is a lot of background/support information, such as how to pull small, sticky parts apart, how to thread the rubber bands easily, a Lego geometry tutorial, troubleshooting steps for each project, etc. While nice to have, I couldn't get the kids to read any of it -- all they wanted to do was build.
The "includes every brick, gear & axle" should be taken with a small grain of salt. While it is true that every Lego piece you need is included, the Tennessee Time-Killer requires a piece of dental floss (or similar thin string), and the Zipline Runners require a string to run on. Minor, but I think should be mentioned.
Complaints/improvements: 1) larger storage area to put the pieces back in when done would be nice as they were packed in pretty good; 2) extra rubber bands, as we broke a number when the kids wound things up too tight (e.g., racing the Supercharged Speedsters).
I found this book very helpful as it got my kids thinking and adding the moving components to larger Lego sculptures they were building. Because these are Legos, this set is compatible obviously with Lego, but also Megablok and generic Legos. The pieces fit snugly together, and when added to slightly bigger sculptures, the kids can have some pretty neat moving toys.
Overall, my kids really loved this set - we liked it enough to gift this to Lego enthusiast kid friend with great success. While this set is definitely isn't as exciting as getting a character based 100 piece Lego boxed set, the replay value of this book is much greater, and a great way to foster creativity in your kids.
