Lego City Review & Competition

The
boys have really got into LEGO again and its lovely seeing them being creative,
then using their imagination coming up with different scenarios with everything
they have built. It’s been keeping them
entertained for ages, usually it’s a battle getting them off screens but LEGO
is winning again!

I
was only too pleased to review two of the LEGO City Great Vehicles range, the Fishing
Boat (60147, RRP £17.99) and Pizza Van (60150, RRP £14.99) so they could add
them to their growing collection. At
the moment they have made a hotel of their own devices and like having
additional food and activities for the guests to make their stay more
enjoyable. These two sets complemented their vision. They can now offer fishing trips alongside horse riding as part
of a stay at their hotel and you have more choice regarding what you can eat
there (not just ice cream or a baguette!).

The boys promptly built a set each and started to play,
even though it was technically bedtime they couldn’t wait till the following
morning to get cracking. Once you’re in
the LEGO zone you just want to focus on your latest build project and see it
through to completion.


For
the price you get lots of items, every little detail you could possibly need to
make the most of the set. My friend’s
partner owns a business making and selling pizzas so they have pretended he is
the little LEGO man from City Pizza – although they did enact him having a nap
in the pizza wagon at one point!!!


You
can use the scooter to deliver pizzas to all your hungry LEGO characters and
the parasol table is a nice extra for customers when they want to stop and eat.

The
sides of the van open when its stationary and you are in the hatch dishing out
pizzas then you can close the sides when you’re driving to your next
pizza-serving destination.

Anyone for pizza 😀 #legocity #citypizza #lego x

The
Fishing Boat comes with a rod, fish and a pesky shark – watch out for him! You have a ring to throw into the water if
anyone gets into difficulty. It really
is a fun set with lots to interact with. 
The boys especially liked the swivelling chair.


These are just two of the Great Vehicles, whereby you can do great
things; you also have the Race Plane (60144), Buggy (60145), Stunt Truck
(60146), ATV Race Team (60148), Dragster Transporter (60151) and Sweeper &
Excavator (60152).

Other new releases centre around the LEGO City police,
so if you’re a fan of high-speed chases, arresting crooks and solving crimes
these are the sets for you. I have the Bulldozer
Break-in (60140, RRP £64.99) to giveaway as seen below, you need to come quick as the bad guys are breaking into the bank using a bulldozer!!!
