LEGO® Classic Box
This LEGO® Classic box set comes in a plastic storage bin shaped like a brick (bonus!) and runs about $50 for 790 pieces.
We especially like this colorful addition to our brick collection because it brings into our mix many new brick shades like bright blue, pink, purple, tan, and maroon that our inherited collection from the ’80s doesn’t include. (Yep, our inherited collection is my childhood collection of LEGO bricks and is the LEGO gift that motivated us to buy LEGO in bulk online). There are 33 brick colors included in the Classic 10698 set.
The Creative Brick Box 10698 includes many colorful 2x4s, 2x3s, 2x6s, etc, which greatly increases our basic brick building capabilities, while the included specialty bricks such as doors, windows, upper and lower slanted angles, several round bricks, 2 green baseplates, 6 wheels, and 7 eyepieces opened up NEW creative building options.
The #10698 box set comes with a printed idea manual, which my son jumped right into reading. At 6, almost 7, he can follow instructions and successfully build on his own. During just my dinner preparation time, he cranked out three new small creations. For reference, here’s the Lego 10698 building instructions PDF.
What’s especially nice about this set is you can go online for more inspiration and online guides, and there are enough pieces to build your ideas, too.
We especially love this clever idea by blogger, The Paper Mama, to build a plant potter with Classic Lego Bricks.
