Great, but leaves you wanting more
I bought this for my 3 year old son so he can play with his lego in his room, it creates a solid platform which steadies out any carpet or hardwood floor sufficient enough for figures and building not to fall or weaken, the only downside is, I wish i had bought 2 as they can go together with their individual sides creating a much larger and more interesting space. My son loves all the little details they put in there, such as a banana on the road and the shadow from a flying bird. It goes great with the lego train and station going around the circumference of the board.

Bigger than you might think
Measuring in at 39" by 27.5", this is a giant play-mat and is incredibly well made ( thick solid cardboard). Worth the $14.99. I took off one star because the play-mat creases are deep and a little awkward. The play-mat may have benefited from a horizontal cut like a game board. The play-mat does not sit like the picture shows but it may smooth out over time I guess. Great mat otherwise, so says my 4 1/2 year old.

Great add-on to the LEGO imagination experience
Bought this for my 4 yr old son to use with all his play sets/vehicles and it was a hit. My 8yr old daughter ended up playing with him on it as well.
Quality and construction is good and seems like it will hold up with normal play. It's a decent size when folded flat, but the space fills up pretty quickly once you add the play sets on it. It's double-side design print is a nice touch and I'd recommend buying 2 of them as the designs on both sides match up.
Sad to see this is now a retired product and I'm glad I picked up 2 before the holidays. Hopefully LEGO will reissue or offer another CITY scenario version of the playmat.

Good but should be bigger
I bought this for my 4yr old son who has a lot of the larger City sets. Hoping that he could put his police station, fire station or volcano set on this.
It needs to be twice as big in order to play properly on it. It is good to put a couple of cars on and follow the road round. Double sided gives my son a couple of scenes to spark his imagination.
It is a hard coated cardboard which is very sturdy at the moment. Time will tell if the seems start to go through normal wear and tear.
As with most Lego products on the website, it is a bit over priced but my son loves it so that alone makes it worthwhile
