October 2018 Brick Loot “Weird Science” Review
This month was all about science – as a grown woman who likes to play with legos – I think it goes without saying that I’m a bit of a science nerd as well, so I love this theme!
Each delivery arrives with a card that details each item in your box.
Lego Science Lab designed by Tyler Clites – Estimated Value $10?
The first build was pretty simple to assemble and contained only 38 pieces. It was a mini science lab, designed by Tyler Clites. I thought the detail was fun, but not outstanding, and the whole thing took me under 5 minutes to build.
Fun Pack – Estimated Value $5?
A handful of science lab related extra were included in the box.
Billy The Science Guy – Estimated Value $5?
Are all men in science named Bill? This guy is the perfect figure to work in your mini science lab.
Circuit Cubes Kit – Estimated Value $35?
These electronic building blocks are compatible with Legos. The kit received in this box was a custom curation and contained the circuit cube, some wires, some light reflective legos, and the other materials needed to create a few different projects.
First, I made the light tower. It was pretty straightforward, once I figured out that there was a right and wrong connection to the metal spokes on the circuit cube. I love that the cube is chargeable with a USB cord (included) – and you don’t have to worry about replacing tiny batteries. I was also surprised by the amount of light that this little bulb gave off!
Next, I made the flashlight, followed by the gobo flashlight which enabled me to project a star.
The final project was a light mixer – which I had no problem building, but I didn’t really understand the point of it. I think of the projects relating to this cube kit, hands down the flashlight was the most fun.
Verdict: This was a fun delivery – the star for me was the circuit cube. I liked the theme of weird science, but I do wish that the builds would have been a bit harder. As an adult, it took me probably less than 30 minutes to do all of the projects – With that in mind, this is a good subscription for school-aged children, and one that a parent and child could enjoy together. As for value, I think that the circuit cube set alone would have exceeded the $33 / month ($27 + $6 shipping) – so I do think the value is there, especially since you receive exclusive products.
