Lego are the best. My 5 year old grandson can build these kits mostly by himself learning and playing at the same time. Great toy, exceptionally easy to understand directions and fun. A great themed toy that will help a young mind grow.

Recommendation: meh average 87 / 100 by Tom

The Ambulance Helicopter is a solid buy, even at full price. You get a good looking set that comes at a nice value in terms of the cost per brick, as well as the build time that you get. The Minifigures are not super detailed, but every city needs men and women in generic uniforms as well. I like this set quite a bit, and my only major alteration would have been to make the roof one tile layer higher. That way, the paramedic could have fit into the rear compartment. All the same, I recommend the Ambulance Helicopter.

Recommendation: yes average 4.3 / 5 by Justin

This is a great set which I'm sure will appeal to LEGO City fans and is a worthy addition to any fleet. The colour combination works incredibly well and the use of the nose part is integral to giving this model its look and feel. The real test of any aircraft is the ‘swooshability' and this doesn't disappoint, so I have no hesitation in recommending this set.

Recommendation: no average 4 / 5

The Ambulance Helicopter took us 25 minutes to assemble. It includes 190 pieces and three mini figures: a pilot, medical technician, and a snowboarder. The snowboarder has gotten himself into trouble - good thing the tech's radio picked up his distress signal! The helicopter features spinning rotors, landing gear, and a back hatch.

Recommendation: no bad 3 / 5 by Richard

The helicopters compared do not really occupy as a similar space in the market, or indeed the imagination. One is solely for swooshing or display, while this year's Emergency Helicopter acts as a display/swooshing piece, a source of role play material, with the 3 LEGO Figures. Both have their strengths and weakness.

The LEGO City theme has offered no shortage of helicopters in recent years but 60179 Ambulance Helicopter really stands out as an excellent example. I love its bright red and yellow colour scheme which is suited to a rescue vehicle and the shaping of the aircraft looks superb, closely matching a number of real helicopters. All three minifigures are great too and I am particularly satisfied with the new paramedic uniforms.
