Young explorers can head right into the jungle with this helicopter, which comes with all sorts of additional features for extended play value. The cockpit opens, with a space for one of the figures included; the other figure fits into the ATV. The helicopter also has spinning rotors and a working winch (this attaches to the ATV, which can then be raised and lowered), so children can really make use of the imaginative play possibilities. There’s a temple which features a moving leaf; this opens to reveal a golden chalice. Finally, you’ll find a spider figure, a machete and a treasure chest – lots for children to explore and get excited about.
The helicopter including rotors measures over 3″ (9cm) high, 9″ (24cm) long and 7″ (18cm) wide – it’s a good size to play with; recommended age is 6 – 12. The LEGO City range includes plenty of other kits which all work well together, and each additional one really enhances the play value. As always with LEGO, the instructions are very clear and easy to follow for the recommended age. With all the accessories, this is excellent value and will give many hours of play.
