This was definitely the most disappointing toy under the tree this year. Our little guy was graduating from Mega-Blocks to Legos and we put this on his wish list. Based on the nearly "5-star" reviews we chose this "first set". But 30 blocks doesn't build much folks. That is nearly $1.00 per block if you exclude the bucket they come in.
We are VERY disappointed in the value of this toy. Before you believe the other "5-Star" reviews, read them carefully. Nearly every one of them states "few blocks for the money" and/or "looking to get more blocks". I am not sure why they gave it "5-stars" if they thought the toy was insufficient for the price or play value.
If you need an expensive bucket to hold Lego's, then this product may be just what you need.
A small complaint is that the lid is too hard for my son to open on his own, so we don't usually close it tight. Although, this could be a good feature if you needed to be sure the lid stayed on during travel or other circumstances.
Each box in 'My First Set' contains a pretty fun mix of pieces of 33 pieces; a window, a doorway, one of each color of the 'double' length (eight dot) pieces, two of each color of the 'single' length (four dot) pieces. Two pieces with eyes, a couple novel pieces (that can be used to make a bird), a red and blue flower, and one gray cat. Since my days of Legos where the pieces only came in red, blue, green and yellow, three new standard colors have been added; orange, light blue, and spring green. It makes a huge difference aesthetically.
These pieces, while nice, are just not enough. I emphasize the need to buy two sets, which is about what you'd pay for the 71-piece set anyway. Double the pieces, and you actually have enough to make small building facades or a really cool robot, or various small animals. My 4-year old is able to make more complex objects. The 2 year old just likes to put the pieces together and pull them apart in random order and say 'I building!' They both love the cat that comes with it too.Read more ›
As anyone familiar with LEGO and DUPLO would know, each piece is very high quality, practically unbreakable and very easy to clean.
The set comes in a large sturdy box, about twice as large it needs to be. Although that may not be so environmentally friendly, it doubles as a storage box for few other toys (particularly other DUPLO sets that comes in a paper box). My boy is currently more fascinated with the box than its contents.
I've looked at other starter DUPLO sets and frankly, none seemed all that interesting to me (yes, I realize I am not the target audience). There are total of 4 sets, this 5416 Brick Box (house, bird, tree, two flowers, etc.), Lego Duplo 5538 Creative Bucket Started Set Bricks, LEGO DUPLO Deluxe Brick Bucket (5417), and discontinued Lego Duplo Blocks 5486 Building Set.
Although 5538 and 5417 are more interesting than 5416, they cost about twice and three times as much, respectively. Between 1 to 1.5 years of age, most toddler boys become fascinated with cars and I intend to introduce more realistic sets then. Until then, 5416 will be as interesting as other sets and at much lower price.Read more ›

The number of pieces is ridiculous for the price of the box. I'm not sure why it is priced so high. Doesn't make any sense. Read morePublished 3 months ago by A G
