With a nice figure and accessories, some good pieces, and a great vehicle, 7731 Postal Van is an ideal kit for any town. If there is any flaw, it's that the price is fairly steep. Unfortunately, this is a TRU exclusive in America, and they charge three dollars extra on top of the normal $8 dollar price – which is a ripoff if you ask me. Fortunately, I was able to get it on sale, but others may not have that option.

My son loved this. He had been wanting one and could not find one in local stores. I think legos are educational toys as they are like a 3d puzzle. My boys have always put theirs together by themselves and they learn to follow instructions that way also. I think it helps with math skills also and they are fun for kids to play with.

This is a nice set that I can definitely recommend and I think TLG should certainly release a post office to go with this and the Air Mail set. I really like these everyday life sets rather than always fighting crime or putting out fires. Those guys have normal lives too!
