These kinds of sets have, in my opinion a huge quantity of virtues. First it is with them that the kids have the true sensation of what Lego surely are because no matter how is the model that they are building, they will do it piece by piece. Unfortunately nowadays sets use and abuse of the long and unique pieces.
Second, ever more, it’s with this kind of sets that they really create new buildings. At the end they might be slightly strange or ugly but they surely are a real creation, and definitely their brains have been stimulated. With standard sets with detailed instructions it’s almost impossible to build anything beyond the original model.On the other hand with such a variety of bricks, colors and shapes, it is easier to customize, rearrange or even create a new model or vehicle that for several reasons would fit like a glove in any town or in any scenario.
This brick box, for instance besides all the creativity that I spoke, suggest some simple but different models that can be built with pieces’ box: trucks, a small car with a trailer and a towed boat, several simple houses, trees, animals and different vehicles can be built from a total of more than seven hundred pieces. The three mini-figures are also an added value in terms of playability.The younger children will surely love this, next Christmas. If necessary the instructions can be downloaded right from here:
