My 3-year old boy LOVES all the Matchbox Mega Rigs (he also has the Snow Monster set and the Dinosaur set) and Shark Escape is a nice addition to the collection. They are all very sturdy and none of his rigs has broken even with heavy use. Every day at some point he will say, "Let's play with RIGS!" He can mix and match and really use his imagination to the fullest. I HIGHLY recommend the Mega Rig toys, they are MUCH more fun and durable than the usual Matchbox sets (which my son tends to use for a few days and then they are quickly forgotten). One note about Shark Escape is that I don't think it would make a great stand-alone toy, as it consists of just a shark, a guy, and one truck and cage -- but in conjunction with another Mega Rig set or two, it's great, especially if your little one loves trucks AND sharks!
