Brick Loot Subscription Box Review – October 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
Good to Know: All bricks from Brick Loot are either LEGOS or are LEGO compatible.
This month’s theme is Game of Bricks! Too funny! They will eventually make Lego versions of everything, won’t they? Also pictured is a coupon for 5% off at United Bricks.
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.
Note: Pretty much everything that comes in Brick Loot is an exclusive build or custom item made just for Brick Loot, which is awesome! It also means that I don’t have a retail value for most of them, so all the values listed below are based on similar items.
Knight Castle – Value $10?
I seem to recall a previous Lego-based subscription box that was castle-themed, and my kids loved it. This is a cute little facade that will make an excellent addition to the royal scenery.
Velvet Throne – Value $10?
On the other hand, my kids don’t have anything like this. This throne is awesome! I can almost feel the velvet.
Knight Accessory Kit – Value $4?
Flame Lights – Value $3?
The knight accessory kit has all the armaments your knight will need to defend the castle from plunder! I was really excited to see these flame lights from LiteupBlocks this month, too. These fit in the base of the throne above. This is the first time I think we’ve received such specific LiteupBlocks, and I think they will look really cool.
Sir DaBlock – Value $5?
And finally, the knight to complete the whole affair! Brick Loot sends a minifigure each month, and this little guy’s name is Sir DaBlock. Also pictured is the sticker for this month.
The Verdict: My kids love Brick Loot! I enjoy watching them build up their Lego collection slowly over time, too. It seems to keep them really engaged. This month’s value just about breaks even with the box (I think), but everything in the box was a custom or exclusive build for Brick Loot, so I’m okay with that.
