My 5 and 8 year old sons are enjoying this set, but as the one paying for it, I wasn't thrilled. The army men are TINY, and some of the items that come in the set (for example a knife and set of binoculars) are ridiculously scaled so that they don't work with the army men at all. Also, the men are very flattened and fall over extremely easily. Which is frustrating for the boys once they've set up a whole battlefield as the lines of men are prone to suddenly tipping over. We have only owned it one day, and so far my sons are eagerly playing with it, but my 5 year old has already asked if the next time I could "ask for army guys that aren't squished". So, I definitely would not recommend this purchase.
I've included pictures showing the army men scaled to other items in the set, showing how flattened the men are, and comparing a standard army man toy to one from this set.
These are the tiny size, not the standard size, and some of the weapons (machiene guns) are twice as big as the actual army man. The bombs are almost 5 times as big.
We didn't get the set in the picture. Just a bunch of bags of 'military police' guys. Kids very disappointed that there were no tanks or missles.
