Brick Loot Subscription Box Review – May 2015
Brick Loot is a box from a new but growing trend of LEGO subscription services! My kids are HUGE LEGO fanatics, so I was really interested in trying this out with them!
Brick Loot kindly sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Brick Loot
The Cost: $33 / month ($27 + $6 shipping) with options to save money on longer subscription lengths
The Products: Interlocking bricks, brick sets, and accessories from various manufacturers
Ships to: US only
The information card that comes with this subscription is pretty large and details all the included products. It also lists the websites where similar items can be purchased. It looks like from this month’s info card that we will be making some art! On the left is a subscription card and coupon for Brick Journal magazine.
Wing Warriors 3-Play – Value $8?
Vermin Man Minifigure – Value $20
Both of these items are Brick Loot exclusives! The minifigure sure looks menacing! I am basing the value for this one on the manufacturer’s other minifigures. My kids also like these little 3-Play sets because they can be assembled into three different toys! I am guessing on the value of this one based on the number of pieces, similar kits, and the exclusivity.
Mosaic Kits – $10 each?
I had no idea that interlocking brick mosaics were a thing, but apparently, they are huge! Brick Loot included two different mosaic kits, plus they are having a contest to see who can come up with the coolest design! So fun! For the value, I had almost no idea how to come up with these. There are large mosaic kits that are about $60, but from what I could tell on the internet, people more often use base plates and parts from lego pieces they have in their collections. In any case, the boys both thought these were awesome, and I think they will get a lot of use!
Lego Watch – $30?
This is another value estimate based on the style of the watch. The one I saw on Rings & Tings is almost identical to this watch, but similar ones can actually be much more pricey! This is a very cool watch, but unfortunately it is an adult size, so my kids couldn’t wear it. They did give it to an older friend who really liked it, though!
The Verdict: This is our second package from Brick Loot, and the kids really love them! The value I came up with this time is $78, but as I said, these are estimates, so I may be way off. Taking the money out of the picture, we got a minifigure, a 3-in-1 vehicle, two small mosaic kits and a very cool watch for $33. Plus I think we will get lots of use out of these items, so I am very happy with the value! Additionally, last time I reviewed Brick Loot, there was a question about the quality of these pieces as they are not Lego brand. I am happy to report that we have not had any issues so far with either ill-fitting or missing pieces. We are becoming big Brick Loot fans!
