Sometimes there's no need for a big ambulance; sometimes you only need a doctor to get there. Fast!

Review and rating.
Do you remember when Lego cars had doors? It seems so long ago... The car is simple; but as well as a set can be designed, this one doesn't look so realistic (isn't it what Lego has been doing over the last few years? Going realistic?) Doc is OK, but I guess many people would have wanted a female fig (and: brown eyebrows with black hair? that's odd  :tongue: ) As I said, no Red Cross, but a politically correct Caduceus on the roof and sides. Extra pieces: 1 small antenna and 1 1x1 decorated tile.
Overall, a cheap way to own a doctor minifig and a nice vehicle to add to your town. Just above average.

Rating: 3.5/5
Most overread phrase on S@H: "Sorry, item is not available in this country: Italy."

Nice review Cobra.  Thanks for sharing.  I esp. like the doctor's torso.  I rate this little set a 4 based on the design of the vehicle and the classic doors.

BLOGGED!

EDIT: I must have missed this review after it was posted back in Sep.  I went ahead and kept the blog, since it's always enjoyable to look at these reviews.
