A close friend of mine Christian is frustrated at his job. Even though he’s already 23, he finds himself wanting his younger years. He used to be very inspired, but all of that is gone now. To help him fuel his long-lost creativity, I sent him the LEGO Classic Creative 10702.
At first, he was hesitant. “Where will I find the time?” he said. To both of our surprise, he found time for it that very night. Do you want a sneak peek of his overall experience? I’ll willingly spill the beans below.
What’s in the box of LEGO Classic Creative 10702?
Inside the box are 583 Lego pieces in assorted colors. These are more than enough to inspire you to different original creations. By the way, the box itself is stylish. The top is shaped like an irregular pentagon, making the whole thing look like a big house. Also, inside is an idea book to help get the creative juices flowing.
Who’s it for?
Honestly, it’s for anyone who’s tired of doing stuff by the book. With the LEGO Classic Creative, you can create stuff to your own liking. Your only limit is the number of Lego pieces. It says on the box that it’s for people aged four to 99. As long as you don’t have a weird tendency of choking on small parts, this is for you.
Basically, if you want to get things done your own way, this is the perfect place to start.
The number of good things I can say about the LEGO Classic Creative is countless. Because it’s not a Lego set or building kit, it can only be judged by how versatile it is to the creations.
Having almost 600 Lego pieces can become confusing. Where do you start? For that problem, the idea book really comes in handy. For sure, after going through it, you’ll have original ideas of your own.
Duplos are great. In fact, there are lots of Lego Duplo ideas that you can come up with. Still, it can be limiting. LEGO Classic Creative gives the opportunity to make more demanding projects with its specific pieces.
- There are too many idea-specific pieces
Yes, all of us appreciate having a Lego door when building a house. Still, too many pieces you can’t always use is a pain in the a-… is a headache, I mean.
- The box isn’t very durable
This can be a big issue if kids are playing with these. Sometimes, they aren’t too careful. If you’re an adult, this shouldn’t be a problem.
If you’re willing to shell out more cash, you’d love the LEGO Classic Large Creative Brick Box 10698. It has more usable pieces and comes in a durable plastic box. Another alternative is the LEGO Classic Creative Supplement 10693.
This can be a real help in building other Lego creations.
The LEGO Classic Creative is a great buy if you already have other Lego Classic purchases. Otherwise, it can be very frustrating. You can only appreciate the specific pieces if you already have the foundation for your work.
