The new City sets, unfortunately, follow the same failings that the recent Town Square set had -- not enough substance for the value. This set has no buildings -- just narrow facades (that seem to get narrower and narrower each year). There is little play value with something this superficial. The shops here don't even add up to a small building we might pay $49.94 CDN for (thinking #31105). It's at best half of that... bringing the value in at about $25. Then we have two $12-$15 vehicles included. Each vehicle on its own would come with one Minifigure, and a $49.95 building would likely come with two Minifigures. That leaves us with two extra Minifigures valued at $4-$5 each sold on their own. Add it all together and it's about $65 in value. So there is $34.99 in excess value which I guess are going towards the new street baseplates which are getting mixed reactions.
60306 Shopping Street certainly places greater emphasis upon the street than the shopping. Unfortunately, the buildings are exceptionally small, leaving limited space for internal detail or minifigures. Enclosed structures are unnecessary within the City theme but I think they should have been expanded, especially given the precedent established in the excellent 60233 Donut Shop Opening.
Much like the other buildings in this range, the shops are open-backed for ease of access during play. I think this is my favourite set of the selection I received, due to its good looks, variety of building styles and the inclusion of a couple of interesting vehicles. The price point seems about right here too.
