I got this car when I was 9 and in hospital was pneumonia. My mam bought it for me and I made it on the table over my hospital bed…so yes there’s some (ok a lot) of nostalgia involved in why I like this set so much, but it’s not the only reason.
The set comes with this minifig (rocking a blue stripey jumper) and a briefcase – so to a 9 year old (or anyone really), she could be a doctor, businesswoman or anything! I think this ambiguity was really clever on Legos part – she really could be whatever you wanted.
And the nifty design of the car even meant there was room for the briefcase in the back!
