CITY Advent 2009: Day 19

CITY Advent: Day 19

7687 - 2009 City Advent - Day 19
Child and RC Car

I've been pretty grouchy this year about any repeats from previous year's CITY Advent calendars. I've taken the stance that CITY is a big enough theme to showcase new things - that there's no reason to rehash the same models over and over again.

But today's set leaves me in a bit of a bind. It's clearly a repeat of a previous year's offerings...in 2005 we had a Kid and a RC race car. But in 2005 it took two days to get the kid and the car.
So today is clearly an improvement over 2005...but it's still a repeat.

Eh. I just can't be grinchy about this one. It's a kid and toys and that says "Holiday Theme" to me. I call today's gift a clear win.

the car is a sucky build. they should have connected the two white pieces with a 1X2 plate, and then put both of those blue wedges on top, with the back ends facing eachother (sorry, it might be hard to visualize)
