“Play-with” Lego sets

Lego sets fall into three categories: 1) those that are fun to play with; 2) those that are for display and 3) those that should be played with, put don’t hold up to the stress. For his birthday, Peabody received the Port of Lego City which is one of the best play-with sets we’ve seen. There is so much in it that encourages story building: multiple minifigs, cargo truck, security kiosk, working crane and a massive ship. Peabody also spent some birthday cash on the Lego garbage truck set. Unfortunately this set falls into the third category: it looks great, but doesn’t function well as a toy. Blocks break off when opening and closing the rear door and storage container separates when “unloading” trash.
