This is yet another Lego product my son received for christmas. I originally wanted a Lego playmat for him to play with his Lego model cars on but these were to small and over priced so I spotted the lego city zipbin storage box and playmat on special in Argos.
Lego city zipbin storage box and playmat cost £12.00 full price and when I made the purchase before Christmas it was reduced to £8.00.
Lego city zipbin storage box and playmat comes in two designs, fire station or police station mat. I choose the fire station box as Lewis has the city fire station model and vehicles.
Lego city zipbin storage box and playmat comes flat packed inside a yellow cardboard box with the Lego brand on the box, it did have a small picture on the box of the product.
Lego city zipbin storage box and playmat measures 34 cm wide and 30 cm tall when the box is made up into the storage cube. The cube has a lid and when the mat is folded up it fits inside the lid. When made into the cube the box has fireman Lego figures on it, some putting out fires and a few standing around the fire truck the detail is lovely and bright. There are zips on each corner of the mat and has folds indented on the mat so easy to follow the folds and easy pull short zips black zips that blend into the background so not to be noticeable, Lewis can make it into the cube himself. It holds a lot of Lego or anything else my son wishes to store. The lid sits securely over the top of the box this makes it stronger and have seen my son sit books etc on top using it as a little table.
When laid out as a mat it measures 74 cm wide and 66 cm long, this is big enough for my son to play with and fits perfectly on the floor space in his small bedroom.
The mat when laid out is an oblong shape, the good thing being the zips are on the outside of the box and you don't feel them under the playmat due to the padding.
The playmat is made up of grey roads with a few firemen in one of the corners ,the outer edge is green for the grass. The mat even has a helicopter pad which pleased my son because he has the City fire helicopter.
Lego city zipbin storage box and playmat is made up of plastic shaped boards on the inside covered with some padding on both sides of the box/mat and covered with a plastic coating also great because you can wipe the mat down should it get dirty or sticky. My son recently spilt cola over it and didn't tell me for a few days until it dried in and was left sticky so a quick wipe with a damp cloth sorted the problem out.
Lego city zipbin storage box and playmat is tough, durable and good fun to play on with the practical part of it being a storage box.
Lewis enjoys playing on the mat with his mini figures and vehicles.
Lego city zipbin storage box and playmat is for children age 3 and up.
I recommend the Lego city zipbin storage box and playmat for any Lego fan.
