Who would love this: LaQ fans / or anyone who loves building & construction toys in general
If you have been following our play journey for a while, you would probably have seen me shared about our LOVE for LaQ - an innovative, made-in-Japan construction toy that can build the coolest things imaginable! Today, I would love to talk about “Hamacron Constructor - Fire Station” set, kindly provided by LaQ (Australia) . Our verdict? LOVE IT x 1000!
Why I love ❤️ this set:
(1) 15 Super Cool LaQ Models - With LaQ, you never know what exactly you are getting until a model is completed! Included in this set are 1040 pieces and 57 special Hamacron parts, and an instruction manual with step-by-step illustrative guide to make 15 models - including Fire Boat, All Terrain Rescue Vehicle, Fire Engine, Crawler Crane, and many more! Oh, what joy it was to see those 2D images came into life. They are not just “ordinary” vehicle models - most of them have flexible, moveable, articulated joints: the “Fire Station” has cool spin-able gadgets fixed on the rooftop, the “Firefigter Airplane” has secret compartment that releases “water droplets”, the “Firefighter Trailer Truck” has smart foldable doors that can be transformed into ramps, and the “Rescue Transport Helicopter” has two gigantic sets of rotatable rotor blades. If these advanced-technique models sound too intimidating to you, fear not! The booklet also contains easy 2D and basic mini 3D models to kick start your creative LaQ journey.
(2) Special New Pieces & Parts - We were thrilled to discover the never-seen-before, new 4-way connectors that provide a new possibility to the construction! We also love the special “glittery” pieces that give the models a touch of “glam”, and the Hamacron parts that make various exciting movements and configurations possible. This set also comes with a sturdy storage case - which is really handy and awesome!
(3) Compatible With Other LaQ Sets - The GREATEST thing is - all LaQ kits are compatible with each other. LaQ mainly consists of 7 basic parts (square, triangle, 5 types of connectors) with audible click and snap feature. It’s absolutely OKAY to combine, mix up the pieces, and substitute / “spice up” the models with different LaQ colours (should I try to build a green fire truck one day 😉 ?)
