Lego City Airport - One of the best airports

Review of Lego City Airport by a Kid

I really liked how the airport came with all the stuff that came in a real airport was in it, like the jetway, baggage claim, and the control tower was much better than I could make. The plane is pretty durable, and with the City Passenger Plane, you get two planes!

Who better to review than ol' Granny

I ordered this for my 6 year old grandson and he loved it! He played with it all week after Christmas, along with all the other Lego City toys he received.

Lego City Airport - My son loved it!

An Amazon Customer Review of Lego 3182 City Airport

"I was surprised when the box arrived at our doorstep because it is a lot bigger than I had expected. The biggest part of the whole Lego set is the airplane. My son (a 3rd grader) took the Lego set straight into his room as soon as it arrived. About 2-3 hours later he finished building it. He just asked me for some small assistance in prying some lego pieces apart because he attached it to a different piece.

It is an impressive airport, a lot of good detail, such as a Soda machine, ticketing counter, a computer behind the ticketing counter, a few coffee mugs, departure/arrival screen, baggage check-in, and security scanning area.

One "con" I found was that there is only ONE Lego minifig to run the whole airport, i.e. that one minifig is in charge of ticketing, baggage check-in, security, contol tower duty, cafeteria, etc... So we headed out to a nearby Lego outlet to get more minifigs for the airport terminal.

Another issue I'd like to highlight here is that LEGO has been skimping on the durability of its recent builds. There are pieces that come of easily and not too sturdy, Such as the door for the airplane. the terminal building is also not as sturdy. While playing, some parts would fall or get knocked off easily, like the lamp post and the terminal walls.

The airplane on the other hand has 3 minifigs:- a passenger, a pilot, and a flight attendant. As for the airport ground crew, there is only one guy to drive the baggage truck, and guide the plane in during "taxi-ing", so we got another minifig to help him out.

All-in-all, my son enjoyed this Lego set very much."

Lego City Airport 7894 Editorial Review

A Review by Emilie Coulter, Editor

"Aerophiles rejoice! Lego's colossal 700-piece airport kit is a very cool kit with tons of realistic details, including a jet (747, naturally) with seats and cockpit with instrumentation, air traffic control tower, baggage truck, baggage claim area with spinning conveyor belt, jetway, revolving door into airport, security checkpoint, viewing area, and a variety of airport personnel.

Kids (and some adults, too; you know who you are…) will spend hours playing airport: sending travelers through grueling security checks (these are 21st century children, after all), boarding passengers and loading luggage, monitoring air traffic from the control tower, checking the engines of the airplane before take-off, spinning suitcases around the baggage carousel.

Each major component (jet, main airport, air traffic control tower and jetway, baggage truck, baggage claim) has its own set of wordless instructions, which are fairly easy to follow, especially for veteran Lego craftspeople. And especially if you manage to keep the component parts separate...but that's an issue that goes with the Lego territory. Truly, this is one fantastic addition to the Lego City collection."

      Lego City Airport - Price

      Is the Lego airport set too expensive?

      Lego toys are probably the best gift you can give to your kids on Christmas. They are expensive, but totally worth it.

      Let's look at it this way. If you price them out per hour, Lego airport sets are actually the better deal. The dollar store balsa wood airplane that only costs a dollar but breaks in 5 min costs $12 per hour, but the Lego airport set that costs $100 and is played with every day for an hour for the next 5-10 years costs nearly nothing per hour. Go figure.

      Warning: These are just planes. They don't include all the bells and whistles that the airport sets have.
