Not quite LEGO (Review)

Posted by admin on April 12, 2013

We all remember LEGO (tm). You know, that toy that used to be made by the same company that now makes the Star Wars themed DIY design kits?

I decided recently to import some samples from China, because when the copyrights fell off the design of the amazing brick system of course hundreds of Asian factories came with their own box. In this post I evaluate my personal experience with the kits of the three with a decent collection of boxes and relatively easy to find:

  • Sluban
  • KAZI
  • Enlighten

If this review leads you to develop an interest in something, do let me know, enough positive reactions might lead me to do a one-off import session of a limited number of different boxes.
