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.
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.
My son is 9.
* Lots of pieces
* Endless possibilities.
* Kids were silent for a few hours
* a small dot piece (head light, lamp light) counts as a piece. BUMMER.
* The size of the blocks seem to get smaller and smaller every year.
* Ratio of the volume of the pieces to the size of the container, I would say between 1/3 to 1/2 at best.
* Expensive ($30 should be perfect)
Based on the summary above, I gave it 4-stars. I've read on other reviews before I made the purchase. It appears that many people tend to think about the kids after the purchase. For example, ...Kids tend to be more creative...educational tool...blah, blah, blah. In my experience, I was dumb-founded by so many types of pieces. It's going to take some time before the kids will go off on their own and be creative. That's being said, if you noticed the last bullet point for the pros. That's why I gave it such a high rating. My wife and I were concerned because the kids were too quiet. In my experience it doesn't take long for one of the kids to make the other yell, "Dad!!!". To me, quiet-time is a precious commodity. In this case, the effectiveness was stellar.
In closing, I am at awe at the intrinsic attributes of this "toy". Which can't be measured by your offspring's creativeness or IQ points. I recommend this set. If you value the same quiet-time as I do, I would highly consider the purchase.
This is a good tub. A good starter set, and the best value that I've found as far as the assorted tubs go. Despite what other reviews say about it being only a fraction full, I actually like this feature, as it allows storage for future LEGOS; I think that's what LEGO had in mind when packaging it that way. Despite the ample "room to grow," there are still enough bricks and bobs and bits to play around with.
Having said that, my only real complaint is there are too many "micro" pieces for my taste. You know, the tiny "lights," the small wedges (one suggested use on the box is for a kitten's ear--it's really tiny), etc. . . While these specialized pieces are great, I would rather have seen more basic 2X6 bricks instead. I don't want to deprive my child of the joy of dumping an entire tub out onto the floor, but these tiny pieces really do make me hesitate, as they literally roll all over the place. This was the immediate difference I noticed between this set and the one I had as a kid.
But to put a positive spin on the compare and contrast, this set comes with a few good mini-figures that are always fun. I could be wrong, but I don't remember seeing those included in the basic tub of yore.
* Many parts are tiny and therefore aren't for the youngest of toddlers; pieces can get temporarily lost all over the home; and it's a lot faster for siblings to tear down than to build.
* Take caution stepping as the small pieces can hurt one's feet.
* Set a date in advance to throw all the pieces away. For example, I set my throwaway time 12 months in advance. This allowed me to feel good every day when I picked up all the pieces, because I knew I would only have to do this for a limited time period.
