What I love about Brick Genius is the color variety that they have! They have colors that many Lego sets do not have in a variety set: Yellow, Green, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Purple, Red, Pink, White, Grey and Black. I hardly see the slightly different blues, pink, purple and grey in the Lego sets.
Brick Genius is not affiliated, but are compatible with Legos. They will work with all our other sets.
The cost like any brick building set isn't cheap. It's $79.99, but on sale for $36. That's a $43 savings! You get 1000 bricks: 60 roof pieces, a free brick separator, and lots of bricks! I dislike that the bricks are made in China. Most things are made in China now a days. I love that they fill up the bag, so there is no package waist. It would be nice for beginners to have a case. It comes in a disposable bag. We have bins for this kind of stuff, so that's not a problem for us.
I have not given this set to my boys yet. I have however played with them myself. :) I plan on creating little constructions with the Elf on the Shelf. Soon enough our Elf Brita will have a couch, a bed, and more. Then the boys can keep the bricks.
This set doesn't come with instructions to build this or that. I kind of like that you can let your imagination take over to create whatever you want.
