My brother actually bought this set, and played with it for awhile. He did enjoy it, but I think I enjoyed it much more than he did. It makes a unique addition to my City collection, and expanded how I could play with it by a lot. Now lights can go out, windows can be fixed, and more things can happen that never could before. If you don't have a large City collection, then the playtime on this would be really short, all's it can do is change the light that it came with. If you have more City sets, though, there's so much more it can do, and so much more fun it can create!
