CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
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!
This product contains small parts and is a choking hazard so not suitable for children under 3 years old.
Cannot comment on the product as the item was not delivered as promised. I ordered this item on the 23rd Nov 2010 and shipping was 8-15 days according to order confirmation. On the 10th Dec I recieved an email stating the item is due to arrive into the warehouse in the next couple of days and an email will be sent on dispatch. On the 15th Dec I recieve an email stating the item is currently out of stock and delivery date cannot be confirmed. Very frustrating considering the intent of item was a xmas gift for kids.
I tried to order this product last year, but was frustrated by the delay and poor communication from Fishpond. Ordered in early December but after some weeks it never arrived. When I queried where the purchase was up to (after Christmas) I got got an automated reply cancelling the order. No explanation and no apology. I am sure the product is good but perhaps buy elsewhere!
What do we like about this LEGO Box? Love the see through lid - we haven't had this on any of our other LEGO box sets! I love the way that the lid clicks and stays in place - no spills or tips with 100s of blocks everywhere! The kids like having the extra base plate - apparently you can never have too many! And that there is a cool minifig that you don't find anywhere else. It's great that the box is big enough that the kids can create stuff and I can tidy it away into the box ... without having to break it down!
The brick box is literally the bread and butter of LEGO. I grew up on this stuff and it has unlimited possibilities within that single box. You can build skyscrapers to motor vehicles, your imagination is your limit. This box also includes a single mini figure which really increases the fun.
