It seems like the anticipation and joy of snail mail has been pretty much lost on our newest generation. Children of all ages communicate via video chat to relatives who live far away, and older kids converse with everyone on social media and/or e-mail. Brick Loot changes that though, and leaves your kids excited to check the mail, as they wait for their monthly deliveries to arrive!
You can order a 1-month, 3-month or 6-month subscription. The more months you order and pay for up front, the less you pay.
Each box comes with a minimum of 4 items (usually 4-8 items) with a retail value of approximately $45. You will be privy to exclusives that you just can't find anywhere else. The candy man vendor (minifigure) in this month's box is fun, and based on the real life owner of Sweet Pete's Gourmet Candy Store. In fact, the whole kit was designed after Sweet Pete's store and is pretty downright awesome. So what's included? Let's take a look. There was a cotton candy cart to build, as well as a mini city candy shop, miniature pieces of brick candy, the mini figure mentioned above, a fun art print card (signed), a coupon savings for the Brick Journal and a brick mold with a recipe so the kids can try their hand at making their own candy (or you could use the old standby of JELLO in the mold, that's probably what we are going to do). :)
Honestly, I wasn't familiar with Sweet Pete's (the real store) but I figured (ha-no pun intended) if he's awesome enough to get his own LEGO builds and mini figure he must be all that and a bag of chips lollipops.
I have seen a lot of cute Lego sets and this one is right up there with the best.
Building them was of course, the priority, and my son got right to work on both of the included kits.
Here is the finished cotton candy cart. So cute, isn't it?! Makes me nostalgic for summer. ;)
Then he got to work on the candy shoppe.
This is adorable in it's own right. I mean who doesn't love a candy store? I love the little candy light at the front, and the big swirling candy on the top.
The back side of this build shows the interior, complete with seating so your mini figures can cop a squat and enjoy their treats. ;)
I give this subscription service a 5 out of 5. Brick Loot is a great choice to have delivered monthly. What better time to get one started than the new year?
