7994 Port of LEGO City

Fall 2007 Toys
Ages: 6 & Up
Manufacturer: The LEGO Group
Price: $89.99

This set of a large cargo ship with containers, trucks, figures and cranes--all part of life at a busy port--has many medium-size blocks that are easy for younger children to manipulate, as well as many moving parts in the finished product that allow you to continue to play with it after the building is through. Discrete creations allow multiple children to work together--a great way to encourage cooperation among siblings or team work among friends--with several units or vehicles which will be used at the port alongside the main container ship. On land or at sea, this Lego product will provide hours of fun for the kids, giving them a chance to create their own seafaring tales or salty dockside stories. It may even get them in the bath more often!

Note: Some testers reported the cranes, although cleverly designed, were fragile and quickly became inventory of the large spare parts bin.
