As you can see, the set's pretty small -- and entirely self-contained. In addition to providing a variety of blocks to make one very elaborate or several simple city structures, you also get pieces to make a bridge, and three autos.

The original price on the bottom is marked 50 cents. I've seen them on eBay for about $30.00, which seems about right. The blocks aren't precisely cut, and the windows aren't printed exactly center -- so this isn't the highest level of German toy manufacturing.
|Or I could build one of these other designs.|
Still, there's a certain charm about the set, especially when I put the pieces together. I just need to be sure to assemble them on a perfectly flat surface, though. Because, as you can see from the photo below, those blocks weren't cut exactly square!
|Or just create something on my own. Beep, beep!|
