My 5 year old grandson and i have had a lot of shared enjoyment with the lego fire station. As well as following the instructions with me or his dad, he has also been able to use the contents to invent his own projects such as making little cars, houses etc. This shows one of the strong points of Lego ; it's versatility and flexibility. It is a fairly expensive toy but you do get your money's worth with the different uses you can put it to. Excellent.
