Classic, great toy

on 7/14/2012

I am under the impression that a lot of folks reviewing here are not particularly well acquainted with Lego in the context of the wider world of toys out there. They are expensive because the quality of construction is excellent. You do, invariably, get what you pay for. We buy Lego, Playmobil, PlanToys, etc. for our kids. These are all up there in the price bracket because they are durable and they fit together beautifully and consistently. My toddler son is now using my daughter's old Duplos and they look just like they did when we bought them. We buy "junk" toys occasionally, such as Polly Pocket, and I usually regret it. I paid $30 for a Polly Pocket "RV" and it literally went to pieces after very gentle use in a matter of days. I threw the whole thing away after a couple of weeks and she didn't care. My daughter will not remember that piece of junk when she is an adult but, like me, she will remember her Legos. I agree that there is quite a bit of space left over in this bucket, but you do see the piece count right on the package. Perhaps 400 sounds like a lot, but when it comes to Legos, yes, you do probably want more and the great thing is, with the excess room in the tub, you have room to add more pieces just like we did with her Duplo tub.

Love LEGOs. This was such a great deal on a big tub of Legos. Bought for a Christmas gift.

Product Overview

The building possibilities are endless with the LEGO Brick Ultimate Building Set ! With a transparent lid and a great selection of LEGO pieces, this big storage box lets builders create at home or on the go. The colorful and classic collection of bricks also includes a LEGO minifigure, base plate, wheels and special house elements! To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen by combining the Danish words Leg Got that means play well and later realized that the word LEGO in Latin translates to I put together. The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children around the world, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. Most historians point to the invention of the wheel as a major turning point in world history. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO innovation continues to this day with product lines like DUPLO that was created in 1969 for smaller hands and still thrives. Movie tie-ins, such as LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Indiana Jones Adventures and LEGO SpongeBob are some of the most popular sets. The Sci-Fi LEGO Bionicle sets have a huge following but the number one selling LEGO set of all time is The LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Invention System. Over 1 million of these sets were sold around the world. In 2009 LEGO introduces the next generation LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0! LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!
