Join the space team at the test laboratory with the LEGO City Space Starter Set!
Have the engineer tighten the nuts and bolts and check the infrared camera and drilling function on the Mars rover buggy before you take it for a test drive over the simulated Mars terrain. Help the astronaut test the jetpack and then join the scientist at the computer station to examine the results. It’s all in a day’s work for the LEGO City space team!
This set includes 4 minifigures with assorted accessories: a scientist, engineer and 2 astronauts.

Huge Hit with 4 year old Girl – By Emma Dickinson on May 4, 2016
Bought this for a friend of mine’s precocious 4.5 year old daughter. She assembled the people on her own (opened up the book and read the instructions all by herself without any prompting from us). She loves the girl scientist. She needed some help assembling the rest of the pieces. The booklet is a great learning tool for teaching counting, pattern recognition, and spatial skills. With a little guidance, she picked out the right pieces. She could identify where the pieces needed to go, however, her manual dexterity isn’t quite strong enough to manipulate some of the smaller pieces. After assembling everything according to the instructions, she promptly took everything apart and started to build new things. Her mom tells me she’s been playing with this set daily and is hoping to get more Legos for her birthday this fall.
From the perspective of an adult with fond memories of Legos as a child, this set offers a lot of bang for the buck. Two space suits, a computer, a female scientist and lots of other cool, unique pieces that can be remade into endless creations and adventures in the future. (And I think it’s worth every penny just to get a female scientist)

Fun with Legos – By Chasen Bailey on April 4, 2016
Bought the space starter kit to go along with the Utility Shuttle kit. This kit adds to the creativity of playing with the other building kits.
