The bucket only is about 1/3 full and most of the peices are soooo tiny wheels axils.. hair, heads.. tiny dots... ).. there are a lot of peices and legos are always fun for the kids.. but i could EASLIY fit another compleate set inside this bucket! was expecting more of the larger things for my kids... the intention was to share it with 2 kids...

I can understand the disappointment when buying it online and seeing there is so much extra room, but Legos purposefully does this so that you can continue to add Lego sets and not have a zillion little boxes or plastic containers hanging around and getting lost or forgotten. The great thing about the extra space is that you can fill it on holidays and birthdays with extras like windows, doors, frames, people, workers, wheels and building plate bases and etc.

wow you just listed everything that was tiny of about 300+ of that 700... my girls will love it.. and thats what matters the most... but 50 bucks for i want to say volume wise... what could fit in 4 16 oz solo cups... is utterly rediculous when the cost for plastic is so much cheaper! i get the extra box space.. in fact i plan to utilize that in the coming holidays... but the cost vs amount is a major rip off...... case in point a single set of 80 or whatever of the toddler legos... has more volume and i paid 20 for it... explain the logic!

Completely agree with this review, majority were super tiny itsy bitsy pieces. The Lego sets I played with were mainly comprised of 8x2 bricks, but that was +30 years ago...

The idea is to supplement and store other sets.

Yes, this a terrible Lego set, unless you like building many tiny projects. And on line there is much better value when buying generic Lego type blocks, mostly from Canada.
