Brick Loot Subscription Box Review – January 2016
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 Brick Loot is all about trains! I don’t think my boys have ever received a train themed box before, isn’t that weird? Good call, Brick Loot! 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.
Brickland Express – Value $12?
This is a custom build for Brick Loot with 129 pieces. It looks pretty cool, and will definitely keep the boys busy for a while!
Brickland Railway Station – Value $6?
This little railway station is an exclusive custom kit by Brick Builders Pro and is 100% LEGO! The little newspaper rack is extra cute.
The Conductor – Value $12?
This is another Custom 100% LEGO minifigure by United Bricks. He looks pretty cool for a train conductor!
LED Railway Station Light Kit – Value $2?
We’ve received several blocks from LiteupBlock before thanks to Brick Loot, and they are truly awesome. This custom kit was created specifically for the railway station. Railway stations can be dangerous at night.
Railroad Tape – Value $8
This tape is really cool! We received some road tape from InRoad Toys before, and it’s really good stuff. It’s re-positionable and it doesn’t leave any sticky residue when you pull it up. This really ties the whole train set together!
Verdict: My kids love Brick Loot! They’re starting to build up cool collections of minifigures, LiteupBlocks, and multi-build vehicles thanks to Brick Loot. I also like that the pieces are all LEGO or LEGO compatible so that when they eventually lose a piece from a kit, they can still use all the remaining pieces in their Master Builder kit. I’m really unsure of the values of all these items since they are all exclusives and customs, but if my guesses are anywhere close to accurate, the value comes to around $40, which is good for the $33 price. More important to me, though, is that my sons have a great time with these and are entertained for hours.
