So I skipped the sets for Christmas and bought him two large sets of just legos. He opened them and shrugged. We moved them into a large flat rectangular rubbermaid tote and his eyes gleamed. He went onto the sun porch on the wood floor, and went to building. He built cars, rockets, planes, houses and forts for four hours. Add a few minifigures to his lego bucket and I have one contented kid.
This was a terrific decision. Since then friends and family have seen the buckets of legos and have opted for the free play lego sets. It really is worth it. The sets are magnificent, but if your child is like mine and won't dismantle a made lego set this is a great way to put the creative play back in the mix.

I purchased this tub (along with LEGO® Bricks & More Builders of Tomorrow Set 6177) to increase the ratio of "plain" pieces in our collection. The boys were ecstatic when I presented it to them. Every day their faces beam when they show me their latest creations. Sometimes they use the included instructions to guide their building, but most of the time they follow only their imaginations. Our basement floor currently features a fire station; a McDonald's; a bike shop; a house; and a boat.
Lego Bricks are unfortunately very pricey. I cringed when paying for this. But the pain goes away when you think about just how much value comes from this unassuming tub of plastic bits. My boys have logged several extra hours of electronics-free playtime since we introduced these new pieces. Over time they'll log many, many more. And as my 20+ year old Lego collection proves, these things survive.
If you have small kids, they will easily swallow the majority of pieces because they are so damn small!
Even the plastic they are using now for these Lego pieces feel different than the Legos from just 8 to 12 years ago.
If you are looking for the 2X2, 2X3, 2X4, 2X6, and 2x8 bricks, don't waste your money or time with this set!
In the early and mid 2000's, Lego sold a 1,000 piece brick box set that had no specialty pieces in it and was great for building lots of different large things.
I bought numerous boxes over several years for only $20 per box at a brick and mortar store and this box was $50 on Amazon.
Sure, I know the cost of inflation takes part in the cost, but if you average 4% inflation every year from 2000, a $20 brick box of 1,000 pieces would only be $33.30 in 2013! Even if you made inflation at 10% every year, it would only be $69.05 for a 1,000 piece brick box set which would be well worth it compared to all the specialty piece Legos is putting in the brick boxes now!
If you want the good pieces to build large sturdy buildings and stuff, go directly to the Lego online site and order the pieces individually because it is going to be well worth the extra money to get the exact color, shapes, and sizes you want then to mess around with all the BS pieces Lego is now putting in all of these brick boxes to hype up the piece count in them to make them seem much better than they truly are!
I'm truly disappointed in Lego with their brick box sets now!
Here are the exact count for the large building brick pieces that you want:
