I bought this for my 7-year-old boy and he loves it, he assures me Lego is good for the intelligence because you can build so many different things with the same bricks. He made it on his own and had no problem with the instructions and loved playing with it. To him; Lego = Happiness

5.0 out of 5 stars My son's choice 5 Aug 2010

This LEGO set was my son's choice. It was his 4th birthday coming up and he knew exactly what he wanted: a Lego man fixing the light from a mobile platform that he saw in a shop. He is very much into all sorts of cars, car makes, asks lots of questions which I can hardly answer:) so he loves this Lego set together with another one that he got on his birthday. Although he is a bit too young to follow the instructions, but when we mixed all parts together with ''My Lego Town'' set he loves making all sorts of his imaginary cars, houses, planes, cranes... and spends quite long time nicely playing:) There're quite a few very small parts so he still comes for help sometimes when he can't put couple parts together or take them apart, but it's ok I like helping him with his Lego, it's fun:)

4.0 out of 5 stars Lego City Repairman In Lamp Fixing Drama! 12 Feb 2010
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Oh no! There's a street lamp out in a dark corner of Lego City! What shall we do? Quick, send for Boris (yes, that is his name. Well it is now) and his cheerful yellow truck to get on the mend!

As the City line continues to expand, we get this neat update of a theme last seen in 1990. As with all Lego vehicles, the build pattern is fairly familiar, but efforts are being made to add further details and make the build pattern a little different. The cab is a fairly standard build, but sacrifices the usual seat in favour of some uncomfortable looking grey sloping tiles and looses the gearstick that's appeared on many service vehicles of this nature (Cement Mixer, for example) and has in its place a more sturdy foundation for the back half of the cab - including a neatly placed transparent beam to act as a rear window.

The back of the truck, is of course, the business end of the vehicle, featuring three storage points for tools and two containers for holding replacement 'bulbs' and further tools. Along with these, you get two crash barriers topped with lights to warn oncoming motorists that there's work in progress. Then there's the nicely worked cherry picker, which has a 45 degree range of motion.

The set would be pretty redundant without a streetlamp to fix, so it comes with one of those too! This is a nice piece of construction, and there's a nice bit of detail with the addition of a green recycling bin.

Its a fun little set and its good to see that innovative build patterns are still being found for the plethora of vehicles that Lego churn out for the City theme (Must be quite a challenge that) and whilst it probably wont set many pulses racing, its a damn sight more interesting than another emergency service vehicle and has enough play value not to get boring.

I think there is not much to tell- I'm not gonna be a nerd writing one thousand lines "the educational level of this toy is this but quality is that" (etc). After all it is LEGO- it is fun, it is quality, well designed and made... Recommended to everyone (even if you are an adult kid)

This truck is great fun. It is amazing how the imitation hydrolic platform clicks in to place and can move around. You can put the man into the drivers seat. Comes with tools too plus a pretend spare light which of course a lego brick but in a lovely see through amber colour which is actually quite realistic. My nine year old is very pleased with this toy!

My 5 year old son absolutely loves this truck. He built it by himself following the instruction manual with no problems. He now enjoys taking it apart and building it over and over again! As a family we have a lot of other Lego models and this is definitely one to add to the collection. The truck comes with a selection of little Lego tools which attach to the truck which my son was especially thrilled with.
