Why It’s Fun
This set is packed with features and details that let kids create all sorts of imaginative, open-ended play. There are tons of little accessories that work with the different features to give kids lots of different play experiences. One of them is found in each prison cell where the toilets hide the crooks' escape routes. Another fun feature is the crook's tow truck, which has a grappling hook that can be used to pull the prison bars down and free the captured crooks.
Who It’s For

What To Be Aware Of
The directions are excellent and split into multiple booklets for each vehicle and station section. That makes building a large set like this organized and easy. The full build should take the average LEGO builders about two hours to complete.
