Kid Review of LEGO Technic Set #42122, for ages 9+
This Technic set was a 10-year-old LEGO birthday gift and is great! It’s about half the size of our other BIG LEGO Technic vehicle sets, such as the 1970 Dodge Charger and Ford F-150 Raptor. The smaller vehicle means the Jeep doesn’t have a working engine, so there are no pistons to build or moving parts under the hood. This simplicity makes this set a doable build for a younger crowd, maybe starting at age seven. This set has 665 pieces. We had eight LEGO bricks left over, so as my son reports, “673 LEGO bricks came in the set.”
- It has a front tow hook with a string almost a foot long.
- Awesome back shocks!
- There’s a steering gear in the back of the Jeep; it turns the wheels.
- The hood lifts up.
- Amazing durability and survives rough play! Everything, except the bolt pieces on the wheels, on this Jeep can survive anything.
- The roof rack.
My son wished the front tow hook had a gear handle. Right now, you must either pull the hook out manually or use your finger to rotate the geared wheel and then manually wheel it back in.
