PRODUCT: LEGO Cars Ultimate Build Lightning McQueen (www.lego.com/cars)Lego Cars Lightning McQueen

DESCRIPTION: A 242-piece construction set from the LEGO Cars range containing 1:24 scale models of Lightning McQueen and Guido. Lightning McQueen flag included, plus stickers and instructions. Lightning McQueen measures over 7' (17cm) long and 4' (10cm) wide, Guido measures over 2' (5cm) tall and 1' (2cm) long. Suitable for children aged 7 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Calling all Disney Cars fans out there! The Ultimate Build Lightning McQueen is a fantastic construction set that young children will not only have great fun building, but will also love racing to help Lightning McQueen win the World Grand Prix!

The set consists of a large number of LEGO parts and pieces to enable your child to build the familiar red Lightning McQueen character from the popular Disney Cars movies, along with one of his pit crew, Guido. The pieces are of the usual durable high quality and come packaged in two numbered bags. These numbers relate to the accompanying instructions manual, which contains easy-to-follow, methodical diagrams to guide your child through building each of the models.

Lego Cars Lightning McQueenLightning McQueen in particular is a wonderful chunky size on completion, and both constructed vehicles are a great representation of their movie characters. The set is great fun to build, and enables young children to construct the inner components of McQueen before adding the roof, bonnet and spoiler.

The models are incredibly detailed, from the tyre treads, gold alloys and spoiler of Lightning McQueen to Guido's forklift prongs! Several of the LEGO pieces come pre-printed with eye and mouth features to add the finishing familiar facial touches to the vehicles, and a sheet of stickers is included also to decorate the 'bodywork' of McQueen, notably his familiar number '95'. In addition, the set includes a Lightning McQueen '95' flag which Guido carries to cheer McQueen on from the pits!

The set is, in our opinion, a great construction challenge for children which is as fun to build as it is to play with afterwards. Likely to appeal particularly to young boys and fans of the Cars movies, the excellent detailing and freewheeling design of the vehicles will provide plenty of imaginative and interactive play.

BAD POINTS: The set is quite expensive, but does include lots of pieces. The Lightning McQueen model lacks the steering ability of the more complicated LEGO Technics range. The stickers may be worn off over time, and as with any such type of product, there are many tiny parts which may get lost.

PRICE:  £25.99
