EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Lego City Jungle Cargo Helicopter, set 60158, is a 201 piece set for kids ages 6-12 to build a helicopter, a temple, and an ATV. The set comes with two minifigures - a pilot and an explorer, plus a spider figure, a treasure box, and machetes. It took our TTPM builder 30 minutes to assemble using the included instructions but almost half that time was spent attaching the string on the helicopter for the crane feature. Younger builders may need help from an adult with that part. Once built, this set offers story starters for adventure-filled play. The helicopter is more of a helicrane, and features an opening cockpit, spinning rotors, working wheels, and a working winch. Kids can hook the helicopter winch to the ATV, and fly it into the jungle. Then turn the knob to lower the ATV to the ground. The ATV can fit a minifigure, and has room on the back for a machete or the treasure box. The temple has a secret entrance via a moving leaf that reveals a gold chalice. The chalice fits in the treasure box for the explorer to transport back home. Great for imaginative play, it's a fun set on its own or when combined with other Lego City sets, sold separately. 

Is It Fun?

Fans of Lego City will want to add the Jungle Cargo Helicopter to their collection. It's fun on its own or when combined with other Lego City sets, sold separately. It offers building and imaginative play. The building play was challenging due to the string on the helicopter so younger builders may need help from an adult with that part. Once built, it offers adventure-filled pretend play with a fun explorer theme. 

Who It’s For

This Lego City set was designed for kids ages 6-12 years old. Younger builders may need help from an adult attaching the helicopter winch.

What To Be Aware Of

It took our TTPM builder 30 minutes to assemble using the included instructions but almost half that time was spent attaching the string on the helicopter for the crane feature. Younger builders may need help from an adult with that part. Additional Lego City sets are available, and sold separately.
