This box of bricks doesn't pretend to be something it's not. It's pretty clear that it's a small collection of bricks to be noodled around with to create fun and fanciful items. What you see is what you get, and to be honest, what you get is pretty entertaining. I bought this for use in my classroom, as a motivator and a tool to use while problem solving. I spent time myself, when frustrated with work and needing a break, building a bizarre little pink house, and I was thoroughly entertained. Is this set spare on pieces? Yes. But what's included is listed directly on the box, so there's no room for disappointment. Is the box cardboard? Yeah, but that's very apparent from photographs. I don't think the lower cardboard portion of the box will last very long, but I know the bricks inside will last forever. Even though it's a small set of bricks, the possibilities are endless, and the best part about these kinds of collections is that you can always add more pieces. It's a great addition to any classroom, any toy room, and the desk of anyone who needs an occasional stress reliever.
I love the idea of LEGO Classic, bringing back a building system for all ages and genders, but I do feel that I got a bit tricked. Part of the reason I was so excited about this product was that I believed that it came in a plastic case like the small LEGO Juniors sets I bought for the toy drive this Christmas. Do NOT buy this if you are looking for a plastic carrier. The top is plastic but the box is cardboard, leaving me feeling very disappointed. True, the LEGO shop website does not say that it comes in an all plastic case, but if the price point is the same as the LEGO Juniors sets that do, can you blame me for assuming this did as well?
keeps my son very busy!!!! he is 4yo and can follow the instructions as he can build something up from his imagination!!! Very easy to find the online instructions as well. I'd recommend this set for sure!!
It should come with a whole container . . . not just the lid. I have a lid and nothing to put it on . . . so yeah . . .
I like this parts set!
There is a nice color variety which I really needed in my part collection. I've already used some of them for MOCs! I also appreciate some of the specialized pieces like the wheels, the door and window, the flowers, etc.
I would also like to mention the nice hard-cardboard box with the plastic lid that this set comes in. I use it to store extra parts. So even the box has some value here!
This is a great cheap way to get nice a variety of pieces and a good storage box!
