This is a classic set nostalgic to the bins I had as a child. I am a fan of Lego in general, I like their kits because they allow my 5 and 3 year old to create trains, cars, etc that look cool and are fun to play with. These classic kits allow for their Imaginationon to run wild as they dig in.
This set came with 35 colors. I was happy with the assortment of pieces, some of the smooth finishing pieces, ramps, dot pieces, grated pieces. It had a selection of wheels and hubs, tiny size and medium. Without the tires you can create train wheels. There were several small black windows, without shutters or panes. And one tiny arch window that is pictured on the front. There's also the smooth dot eyeballs. This kit contained a few base plates, the largest was 8x16. Also a brick separator, which is really cool device so you don't have to use your teeth.
Right now we are getting these classics sets to bulk up my kids collection for free building. I do like this medium set for the variety it contains. I have read that you shouldn't pay more than ten cents per Lego (accounting for differences in variety of sizes). This kit retails for $30, so with that little thought in mind it is a great price and variety.
I also recommend the the $20 Lego classic bright box. It contained great colors, and didn't have wheels or windows- mostly building bricks.
if you are just getting started with Legos- buy it. If you need a gift for a Lego lover- buy it. If you want to add on to your/your child's collection- buy it. Getting more Legos can never be wrong, especially when they build your child's imagination and keep them busy for hours!
It isn't a box of bricks. If, like me, you just wanted some 2x2, 4x4, etc. bricks, then you'll be disappointed to know that you'd need to buy quite a few of these to get any reasonable amount of those bricks, especially if you want them in the same color.
This set doesn't NOT come with any minifigures. If you are looking to buy this as a starter kit for a kid just getting into Legos, then I'd wholeheartedly recommend purchasing either the LEGO Education Community Minifigures Set 4598355 here on Amazon, or some other Lego set(s) to give them at least a few minfigures to play around with too.
What this set is:
It's a nice miscellaneous collection of bricks. It's great as a starter kit for kids too old for Duplo, but not old enough for the more complex sets out there.
It's also awesome as a supplement for an existing Lego collection. The pieces are general-purpose enough that they can be easily be integrated with pieces from other sets.
The box can be used as storage for the pieces from this set and from other sets, but read below for a few issues that I had with it.
Due to the aforementioned lack of basic bricks, you can't make too many nice things with these pieces unless you only build things from Lego's provided instructions, or you have more pieces from other sets. That is a serious bummer, but it is what it is.
The box is nice, but the lids tend to decide by themselves when to snap-on, so secure it (maybe with rubber bands, just to be safe) if it's possible that the box could fall over where you put it. It's also worth noting that Lego in their infinite wisdom decided to put small "air holes" (WHY???) at the bottom of these, which are not a problem for the included pieces, but they are big enough that some of the cylindrical pieces from other sets (i.e. lightsabers) can pass right through them. This means that you can really only use this box for general Lego storage if you are comfortable knowing that it's possible that some pieces might slide out while moving this, cover up the holes with tape (ughhhh), or just use it for larger pieces/bricks. What shame.
The pieces included are a great supplement to an existing collection, and this would be awesome as a starter kit for any kids getting into Lego for the first time, although I'd buy a set with minifigures too. Overall, this set is pretty nice, but I just can't get over the issues with the box.
