This is another play set using the Matchbox size cars. It works fine with the included car. I currently do not have any Hotwheel or other competing cars in the Matchbox size to test with the set. I will have more availability in a month or so and if I find any incompatibility I will come back and add to this post. I am aware that due to the configuration some vehicles won't work but I think compatibility is important in these toys.
The set is reasonably sturdy. As in any toy, the exuberance of the child will have a major bearing on durability. I think the addition of some of the other sets to increase the complexity and play value would be a good idea. Overall this seems like a fun toy.

From the vendor:
It's a big beast in the big city! The giant croc has swallowed a vehicle, and only you can save it! Rumble over the rocky bridge, climb the "stone" staircase and zoom down the ramp to the rescue. But be careful! One false move, and you're croc bait! Play set features working croc jaws, rocking bridge and moving staircase. Includes one Matchbox construction vehicle; additional vehicles sold separately. The play set connects to other sets (sold separately) to expand the world and the fun! Ages 3 and over.
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
