Also includes buildable police car, prison transporter, and bicycle, plus 6 x minifigures, police dog, sticker sheet and lots of accessories. Contains 783 pieces, plus instructions.

GOOD POINTS: The first thing to say about this Police Station construction set from LEGO is quite simply...wow! If your child is a fan of the LEGO City range, then this particular set will be a fantastic addition to their collection. Both boys and girls alike will have hours of fun restoring law and order in LEGO City as the police chase down the prisoners who have escaped from jail!

The set consists of a massive number of LEGO pieces of all shapes, sizes and colours, and the components are divided up into numbered bags to assist with assembly. The accompanying instructions manuals are easy to follow and contain clear step-by-step diagrams for each stage of the build. Plenty of stickers are also included to add extra detailing, along with several play figures: a police dog, four police officers and two robbers. The figures have great facial and torso detailing, and fun accessories including hats, handcuffs, walkie-talkie, loud speaker, flashlight and 'wanted' poster.

Lego City Police StationThe police station construction has been very well thought-out, and has a modern design which is packed full of fun features and excellent attention to detail. The station has three floors and lots of windows, with a helicopter pad on the roof (helicopter not included) and a forecourt with parking bays, shrubbery and street light. A large garage with roll-over garage doors houses the two police vehicles, next to which is the dog house, complete with dog bowl and bone! There are two upstairs prisoner cells, with sliding cell doors and great sticker detailing on the walls depicting the prisoners escape plans! Furthermore, the prison beds can be opened to reveal secret compartments, with crowbars hidden inside which the prisoners can use to break out of jail. The wonderful added feature here is that the toilet unit in each cell swings upwards to enable the prisoners to shimmy down the outside drainpipes!

The construction comprises a number of other fun police rooms with added sticker detailing, including a reception with front desk, wall mounted surveillance and swivel chair; a mug-shot area with camera, wall chart and computer desk; and an evidence room complete with chairs, tables, desklamp, paperwork, drinks dispenser (with mugs), even stolen goods. The roof top also houses a satellite dish, and loud-speaker system and flood lights for emergency searches!

Aside from the police station itself, there are parts included to build not one, but threeLego City Police Station modes of transport: a police bicycle, police car and prison transport van. All are freewheeling, and the latter has opening driver doors, along with a rear holding compartment to load the prisoners into and take them back to the police station. Stickers are included to add number plates, police markings and parking bay numbers.

In our opinion, this is an amazingly detailed and addictive LEGO set, which is jam-packed with fun and exciting features. Not only is the set great fun to build, but it's even better to play with afterwards, with endless role play possibilities to keep your children occupied for hours at a time....simply brilliant!

BAD POINTS: A little on the expensive side, but you get good quality and lots of fun for your money! Due to the size and complexity of the model, construction may require parental assistance for children at the younger end of the recommended age range. The helicopter must be purchased separately for the helicopter pad to be of use. While the police transport van has opening car doors, the police car does not. As with any such type of product, there are many tiny parts which are prone to being lost over time.
