I'm the first to admit that the cost of the Jurassic World sets had put me off a little before I bought this one and, whilst they're still a little higher than I would expect (probably down to licensing costs) the set represents decent value for money.
As the father of two dinosaur mad young boys this felt like a good choice for our family build time. It worked out well with one sons building the three minifigures whilst the other build the T-Rex; leaving me with the transport.
The T-Rex is a good size and was an instant hit with my sons who enjoyed the positive feel of the connectors which were strong enough to withstand play without falling apart and not too strong to stop them dismantling and rebuilding it themselves.
The transport truck has some great features and the addition of the robust support stand on the trailer means that each element has good independent playability as well as when together as a single unit.
The drop sides and locking elements on the trailer are nicely done, although unlocking the four corners seems a little excessive. A single or two locking points would have been sufficient and in fact only one on each side of ours now gets "locked".
The trailer and truck work well with the Jurassic World theme but also outside of dinosaur based play. Ours has already been used as a car transporter, bin lorry, dumper truck and brick carrier!
Our only complaint on the truck is around how tight it is to get your minifigure driver into the cab. Doors may have helped but it's still quite tight for space, especially with his cap on; which normally gets knocked off and has to be shaken out in our house!
The minifigures (3 of) are good, match the set well and include decent accessories; and the baby dinosaur is a nice addition.
All in all a good set with the stand out piece being the large T-Rex which I suspect will be the thing that gets played with the most in our house.
