great for a supplement or a starter set

This set comes with a variety of 484 Legos. They are separated into bags and placed into this yellow plastic bin. Once you open the bags, it would probably take up one fifth of the bin. Do not think this bin is coming filled to the top, that would be hundreds of dollars. The bin itself would be great for storage if you needed. I am planning on saving it for their Lego themed birthday party to set up paper plates or silverware in.

This is a classic set nostalgic to the bins I had as a child. I am a fan of Lego in general, I like their kits because they allow my 5 and 3 year old to create trains, cars, etc that look cool and are fun to play with. These classic kits allow for their Imaginationon to run wild as they dig in.

This set came with 35 colors. I was happy with the assortment of pieces, some of the smooth finishing pieces, ramps, dot pieces, grated pieces. It had a selection of wheels and hubs, tiny size and medium. Without the tires you can create train wheels. There were several small black windows, without shutters or panes. And one tiny arch window that is pictured on the front. There's also the smooth dot eyeballs. This kit contained a few base plates, the largest was 8x16. Also a brick separator, which is really cool device so you don't have to use your teeth.

Right now we are getting these classics sets to bulk up my kids collection for free building. I do like this medium set for the variety it contains. I have read that you shouldn't pay more than ten cents per Lego (accounting for differences in variety of sizes). This kit retails for $30, so with that little thought in mind it is a great price and variety.

I also recommend the the $20 Lego classic bright box. It contained great colors, and didn't have wheels or windows- mostly building bricks.

if you are just getting started with Legos- buy it. If you need a gift for a Lego lover- buy it. If you want to add on to your/your child's collection- buy it. Getting more Legos can never be wrong, especially when they build your child's imagination and keep them busy for hours!
See Pictures! NOT Enough Classic Bricks...

The Lego Creative (Medium) Creative set comes to in a nice plastic storage box. I knew what was included, so I cannot blame Lego. There are simply not enough basic bricks to build with. I have uploaded several pictures for your review. When all is said and done, you are left with a lot of extra room in your storage box. For us, this was okay, but if your little builder wants to build a house, you may want to check out the Lego Education Basic Brick Set. That set has a lot of building bricks. This set has more specialty pieces, such as wheels. Overall, a great quality product. Lego never disappoints in that regard. This set may disappoint you IF you don't realize exactly what you are getting. I think my pictures will help you there! As you can see, there aren't many basic bricks.
You just can't go wrong with Lego. :)

If you're looking for a great kit of classic blocks with a nice selection of more specialized blocks to get you started or build on your existing collection, look no further. Good selection of blocks in every color of the rainbow and a variety of shapes and sizes. Includes a booklet with a few project ideas that were easy enough for my 4 year old to complete with little assistance. The tool for separating pieces has proven to be very helpful. My son is particularly happy with the selection of wheels and eyes... he's been busy creating vehicles with faces and loving it! You just can't go wrong with Lego. :)
Back to Basics...

5.0 out of 5.0 by James & Andrea on May 24, 2016
The old LEGO sets from "back in the day" have gone by the way side because everything with LEGO is a theme or a set that has a specific character or purpose to a movie, tv show, or comic book. That is why I LOVE this CLASSIC Creative Brick Box. It has a variety of colors, shapes, bricks, etc. and there isn't a book of "this is how you put it together". This is a perfect way to find the Master Builder in your child. It has been a lot of fun to put the electronic devices down and spend some time just being creative. LEGOs of any kind help with the fine motor skills all kids need-- but I have seen this CLASSIC Creative Brick Box set also give my children a chance to grow and expand their mental world. They have improved their problem solving skills as well as just allowed them to have fun without having to follow directions or have a failed project.

Perfect gift for a child Between the ages 5-12

I purchased this for my son's friend as a birthday gift. this classic set of Lego blocks is the perfect gift to give to a child whose toy preference you're not totally familiar with. This box has a substancial amount of the classic bricks all kids and adults love. Legos are a timeless toy loved by most; you simply can't go wrong with them. This set is no exception.
Great buy, Classic Lego set.

5.0 out of 5.0 by Lolo on June 6, 2016
A True classic! This Lego set is perfect for beginners. We just started diving into the world of Lego's and this set includes several sets that you can choose to build ex. ghost, flower, farm etc. or you can just build it like you want to. They come in bags separated by color and it has a large variety of different types of Lego's. The price is extremely reasonable and I am considering buying it again just because the huge Lego container that it comes in is very sturdy and will be worth it for more Lego's that we purchase in the future! Very happy with this buy.
The "just right" size

5.0 out of 5.0 by RobinGB on May 25, 2015
My 8-year old son bought this with his own money. He saw it in the store and immediately wanted to buy it. We told him to wait until we got home so he could read reviews and think about it. The added bonus with waiting (besides making sure he still really wanted it) is that Amazon had a better price. He has many Lego sets that come with kits but he likes this so he can create what he wants from his own imagination. This kit isn't too small or too big. I recommend it. What also might be nice to get is one of the flat Lego surfaces you can mount things on. They are called Building Plates and come in a few sizes and colors although I mostly see green which looks like grass.
Good product, one complaint....

5.0 out of 5.0 by alewis1227 on April 7, 2017
I got this box of legos for my students to use during indoor recess. The container is sturdy which is great for how many students will be handling it. The lid attached sturdily. My only complaint is that the size of the box is very misleading. If you look at the photo I attached, the pieces it comes with barely even fills the container halfway. I still think it's a pretty good deal for the container plus the pieces. I guess it leaves room for me to fill with more lego pieces as I buy more.
not lego "legos" that were sold here on amazon and fit just fine with actual legos

3.0 out of 5.0 by SmoothCrafts on March 25, 2018
So in trying to give a "chest full O' legos" as a gift to a niece I discovered what I was aiming for would cost thousands of dollars if I bought it from lego. After scouring the internet for a weekend I settled on buying a ton of usa made, but CHEAP, not lego "legos" that were sold here on amazon and fit just fine with actual legos. I wound up finding 1000 mixed size building blocks for around 20 bucks. Through lego anything even close cost around or over 100 dollars and wouldn't have contained many actual building blocks.

Finding anything sold by lego that had a good mix of building blocks and "flavor" or "special" connecting blocks, like axles and windows/doors, was impossible. It was mostly the special or flavor pieces and only ever a handful of proper building blocks. The only set that contained a majority of building blocks had somewhere around 1500 pieces but it cost over 150 bucks!

In the end I bought this set solely as a "special" and "flavor" lego set. It gives you some axles, a door, and enough oddball and unique pieces that you can actually turn some building blocks into something other than just a tower. You can build a handful of things listed in a pamphlet that comes with it but after that the options are pretty limited without some real building blocks to throw into the mix.

To sum up this is a great addition to a collection solely because there are not many other options out there that don't cost an arm and a leg and which also have as many unique pieces. Buy this and a couple of bags of cheap off brands and you've got a good start on a collection. Oh, and don't forget the extra large base boards!
Not what was expected; overpriced.

3.0 out of 5.0 by Connor on July 7, 2016
Significantly overpriced for what was in it. Not an assortment of LEGOs as the name "Creative Brick Box" would lead you to believe. It is actually just several small LEGO model projects, with specific pieces meant for that specific model and not the general 1x1, 1x2, 2x2, 2x4, and 2x8 pieces like I expected. Other than being overpriced for what you're getting, there is nothing inherently wrong with the product, just not what was expected from a box boasting the number of pieces and the creativity of it.
