LEGO City Ice-Cream Truck
Mr. Chill’s Ice Cream Truck is on the block! Our tester liked this almost as much as the real thing! Compared to many of the elaborate sets we reviewed this season, this is a small 200-piece build and listed for 5 and up, but make no assumptions. It’s not simple, in fact, it has some complex moments. With all the little pieces, your five-year old will need well developed fine motor skills. That said, it’s full of delicious details, like a sliding window, a hinged door and ice cream lady and a skateboarder mini-figure plus a dog. It has an eye-catching giant pop on the rooftop, as well as mini pops and cones inside. The only thing missing is the musical horn that tells kids the ice cream man is on their street. We know 5s and 6 are going to need adult help. Still they will love helping with the construction and playing with the finished truck.
