Recommendation: meh 4.6 / 5 from 46 reviews

This set was one of my son's 8th birthday gifts. He loves Legos and especially the forest sets. He puts them all together to make a sure lego world. Anyway, he built this set by himself in about 45 minutes. It is truly one of his, and my, favorite sets he owns. It is very detailed, the bear and honey are adorable, and the guy washing in the tub is hilarious. This one doesn't fall apart easily, unlike some of the Lego sets that are filled with "one snap pieces", and is really a blast. I highly recommend this set for any kid or adult who loves Legos.

Lower the loot with the crane-arm and wear it as a backpack, or toss it in your buggy for a quick getaway. But before that crook can get far, the cops are in pursuit. Lower the string and hook for a daring arrest, or use the net-shooter. Meanwhile, back at the hideout, it looks like the other crook picked the wrong time to bathe, and the wrong place to put the tub - right over a beehive filled with delicous honey.

Recommendation: meh 4 / 5 by Jay

It's one of the rare sets where you feel like you're getting so much more bang for your buck, which is a huge selling point with LEGO these days. Casual adult fans can enjoy the set's cheeky sense of humour, but this set will absolutely delight younger kids who will undoubtedly appreciate all the play potential that this set offers. If you know of a young LEGO fan, this set would absolutely make a terrific gift for him or her. Even as an adult, because of the presence of the bear, bathing criminal and beehive, I can easily recommend this set, especially if you can buy it on sale. Overall, I'm really pleased with what the set has to offer. It's a definite must-buy if you're a fan of LEGO City.

I've never known a police department to operate a sea knight styled helicopter before. It's extreme financial overkill to the police budget (and mine). The build looks good, but is also a bit large for my kid to operate with ease while shooting the net shooter. A single rotor heli would've been a better choice so he can just hold the tail and shoot the net shooter with his free hand; I will be down grading to a smaller size some day when I find a design to mimic. The inside of the heli is mostly unusable unless you just lay the minifigures inside. The hide-out is pretty cool on the outside, but the inside is sparse. The parts budget spent on the larger heli would've been better spent on making the hide-out more substantial on the inside in my opinion. The bear torn minifigure torso has been moved to my prehistoric cavies collection and makes a great hunter. The bear paw boxers has not been moved to my prehistoric cavies collection. The bear is awesome!!! Though I wish Lego would make an attachment for the bear to hook up to tow carts like a horse, or for a horse saddle to slide into place on them so minifigures can ride them, or just something more interactive to bring more play options into the day. Same goes for the big cats released this year. The price is to be expected for a set with all new parts. So I'd wait on a sale and try to find it for $10 less which I think would be more fair. Can't wait for the mountain police station and the mountain lion that comes with it!

Recommendation: no 63 / 100 by Tom

If you want a LEGO® black bear, this is probably the cheapest way to get one. The only other set it comes in is the Mining Experts Site (60188) which costs $129.99 in Canada. But, Mountain Arrest is a really bad value, even at 20% off. I love the black bear, and I quite like the police helicopter. But, you are paying an atrocious price per brick, and you don't get much build time for that price. The Minifigures are, however, excellent, and you get the aforementioned bear. If you like to collect LEGO® animals, I would suggest waiting for a sale.
