Lego Technic 8067 Mini Mobile Crane or Mini Tow Truck – Year 2011

Lego Technic 8067 Mini Mobile Crane is another enjoyable set which functions reveal themselves as you build. It is a medium small size kit with 292 parts released end of December 2010 and one of 10 models scheduled for 2011. The kit is well priced foor the amount of parts you get in the set an also for the quality A and B models you can build out of the box. Targeted to ages 8-14 but it can be tricky for younger audience at certain moments during the build, still it can be done in about 1 hour.

8067 Mini Mobile Crane can be rebuilt into a very neat Tow Truck. both models use 3 axle design for 6 wheels. the unique element is the crane arm. 8067 Mini Mobile Crane version has four turning knobs that control the steering, the winch, crane arm elevation, and outriggers (yes, both extended at the same time by turning a knob - cool touch) so there is a lot of playability and technical functions included.  Sadly it can't really pull any substantial weight due to design limitations, this is often a case in low price models.

Lego Technic 8067 Mini Mobile Crane has a lot going on but besides fun factor the main goal is to teach kids following the manual steps before they get the reward of playing with the toy. There's some extra fun if they miss a piece and have to figure out how and where.

Lego released a few versions of  mobile cranes and all have been a hit so far, 8067 Mini Mobile Crane will be popular as well and should stay on the makret for a few years. The trick on Lego part is that the box is way bigger than final assembled model so be prepared for this surprise, still it's almost the same in most models in Technic medium-small segment.

This video shows what's included in this set and a time lapse build of A model:
