I used this set to fill plastic eggs for our grandchildren for an Easter Egg Hunt. I put the pieces together before putting them in the individual eggs. The children were all delighted, and have apparently already spent a lot of time sorting them, and having fun with them. I think that they go very well with the other Lego that they have or different kinds, and also enable the younger child to join in more with her older siblings..
Lego minifigures without buying an entire building set are so difficult to find. I searched the net and Ebay incessantly and refused to pay $9.00 a figure so was very pleased to find this on Amazon at a great price. This set contains a great mix of male/female figures and the accessories are great!
My son loved setting up these people and their accessories. There are no "instructions" (unlike the typical themed sets) and so he was left to his imagination (and the box cover) for how to assemble them. He also used some of the people in a diorama for a school project.
In general, good wide assortment of people and accessories for general purpose lego sets, and a good value for the price.
