My six and eight year old sons are huge Lego fans, and they have recently become interested in the "City" series, as opposed to Star Wars, Power Miners, etc. The "City" line includes a fire station, police station, house, etc., so to me these sets have much more potential for imaginative play than more specific sets tied to characters like Star Wars or Power Miners. We picked the City Coast Guard Patrol Boat Tower as one of our first purchases in the City line, as the boys love boats. First off, I should note that this is NOT a water/bath toy, unless you enjoy little Lego bits clogging up your water pipes! :-) The set has a nice size boat, the tower, a dock, three figures, and a couple other pieces. Unfortunately it is not a cheap set, but our boys enjoy rescuing people out of the water, capsizing the boat, etc. Of course they make their own modifications to the set pieces using extra legos, and it neat to see how they poersonalize the toys.
