The ambulance, Lego 4431, is an excellent 2012 set, ideal to have in a town, near by a hospital or even a fire station. The set has the ambulance and lots of accessory parts such as a stretcher, a garbage can, a traffic light, a bicycle, a hydrant and medical kits (uuff…). Three mini figures are not common is this set’s size but this one brings them: two doctors and a cyclist. This set pretends to recreate a bicycle’s accident where the emergency ambulance is activated.
The ambulance has a great design, the cabin is slightly indented, giving the vehicle some aerodynamics. Besides that, it’s an ordinary cabin with small side doors that in my opinion are more realistic that those vehicles that don’t have it. In the roof, the blue lights are typical of this kind of vehicle.
The back part of the ambulance, where the patients are comfortably (sometimes not…) lying, has a seat for the doctor and a removable stretcher (that includes an oxygen pump). The doctor has two medical equipments in order to evaluate the patient’s health. These can enter the rear cabin through a big back door.Two final notes, the glass side parts should be smaller. In terms of playability it’s good, but usually these vehicles don’t have those big side windows. The other is the open roof. Good for playing, impossible in real world.This set is very easy to build, its playability is excellent and It brings a lot of extra parts witch makes it a good value for money. It has almost two hundred pieces (199 to be exactly) and three mini-figures. If desired the building instruction can be found here:
