Can anyone suggest another car like Stephanie's cool convertible #3183? Something similar in dimension, piece count but neutral ( not Friends). If someone has any pictures etc. with the 2 side by side, it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much for your help.

My apologies to the Mods if this is posted in the wrong category, please move it to the right place.
Thanks

    There is nothing that is rare in that car, is there? Just download the instructions from lego, and built it with the colours you want.

    ^ I have the instructions and the # 3183 and no, there is nothing rare about it. I need a few of the cars so thought buying them boxed would be the best way to go. Since its for boys #3183 is ruled out.

    The car in 60007 seems to be about the same scale. It's the same width, and the wheelbase looks to be the same. Of course, you get more than just the car in the set.

    What about the medium blue car from the Harry Potter series: #4728.

    #8402 can still be had for a reasonable price.
  • binaryeyebinaryeye USMember Posts: 1,734
    8402 is 4-wide. The Friends car is 6-wide.

    @binaryeye

    Thank you, #60007 would have been perfect but too pricey.

    @Russell844
    Thank you but that particular flying car is a bit outside my budget:-) I need like 10

    @JP3804

    Thank you. But like @binaryeye mentioned #8402 is 4 stud wide.

    The girls will build #3183 and I wanted something similar scaled for boys, at 7, 8 years they tend to be more visual and size difference in the car could lead to a " my car is bigger than yours" argument which I don't want to referee ( perhaps I am overthinking this a little too much) :-)).

    I was looking at the Forest Patrol car #4436 but that one is 4 stud wide too.

    Are they for party favors, or something similar? If so, do they have to be cars?

    You guessed it, yeah similar to party favor ( they get to build it). It does not have to be a car now that I think of it:-) I could go with something else like Ninjago kai mech. Any suggestions?
  • JP3804JP3804 Member Posts: 332
    ^ You are absolutely right about the size difference.

    My first thought is 10656 and 10661, but those may be too "entry-level" if you're thinking of Ninjago.

    @binaryeye
    #3183 is finalized for the girls:-) The challenge was to find something similar for the boys but like you said if its not a car I shouldn't run into the "size" issue. I will visit the local Lego store too and check out their PAB wall to see what they have in terms of auto parts:-)) or else there's always Ninjago.
    Appreciate your help, thank you.

    @JP3804
    Tell me about it...any little thing could start a crying jag:-)

    The closest car to the piece count and size that I could find is #6913 . It's a little bigger but doesn't have the minifgure or extra pieces outside the car.
  • dneuldneul Member Posts: 369
    What about one of the mini creator containers 31000, 6911, 6912. Other ideas for girls could be the collectible animal polys. The 4x4 mining truck and patrol car are equivalent in size. I don't think kids will compare a girls car that the car and girl are bigger to a boys set. It is a slightly different scale with the legs as well.
  • dneuldneul Member Posts: 369
    If you wanted to venture past the car idea, 31004 looks very cool. And the kids could build it 3 different ways.

    Would #31102 give you what you're looking for? In terms of size, piece count and price it seems to be on par with #3183; or #4208, or one of the other current city trucks if you want it to include a minifig.
  • EKSamEKSam Member Posts: 349
    @graphite
    Thank you, #6913 is my last resort:-) I think its 8 stud wide though. #3183 takes about 100 parts to build just the car and is 6 stud wide x 10 long.


    @dneul

    The mini creator containers are neat but tiny:-). The mining truck looks good in terms of size and price point. ( goes in probable candidate list) :-))
    The fierce flyer is beyond cool, I am worried even the parents will want one:-) I can do this for boys and girls. Awesome suggestion, thank you.

    @SirBen
    Thank you. #4208 is a little pricey:-) which one is #31102? Brickset does not show anything for that particular set.

    Thanks a lot guys, appreciate all your suggestions. I will head out to the Lego store tomorrow to take a look at the PAB wall. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Fierce Flyer is really neat. I built it and really enjoyed the build. It looks pretty cool displayed also. That is one set I may buy a ton of if I eve see it between $6-$8

    Sorry, I transposed a "1" and a "0". I was looking at Super Racer, set #30112, http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=31002-1
