The LEGO City Theme has been one of the longest running series. Buildings, cars and police are things that children can relate to create their own make believe world.

One of the sets, Town Square 60026 stands out from the rest. In the box are pieces to build two buildings, three vehicles, eight minifigures (nine if you include the statue), a dog and plenty of accessories.

You get a nice red bus that can ferry minifigures around. The second vehicle is a cool mobile crane with working lift arm. There is also a small road sweeper to keep the streets clean.

The buildings included in this set are a pizzeria with indoor and alfresco dining. The second building is a corner two storey bike showroom. There are two bicycles and two motorbikes included for filling the showroom.

Some promotional images from LEGO suggest combining two sets to mirror the bike showroom.

Other City sets only have either cars or commercial vehicles. This is a great starter pack to get a variety of vehicle and building types. You could then get other smaller sets to supplement the Town Square 60026 with more vehicles or buildings.
