Blue Building Baseplate 5x5 8 pack Review

My boys play with Legos much of the time. The problem is that Legos are so expensive. I'm finding that off shoot brands are pretty good to. They don't put a dent in your wallet.

We never really had any baseplates to play with. Now we do. I got a Blue Building Baseplate - 8 pack that is 5"x5" to review. They are made by Click n' Play. The cost is $13.61.

Gift of the Season:
  • They are going in my kid's stockings. They are the perfect size for a stocking gift. 
  • This would be great for any nerdy White Elephant gift. I have a lot of artist friends that still love building with Legos, or similar building toys. 
  • You could donate these to a local school, or library for a Lego Club that they have. We have Lego Clubs at both the boy's school, and library. 
  • You could donate these for Toys for Tots, a hospital that has children there long term, or other non-profit that gives to children. I love giving, but I don't want to spend an arm and a leg when I give. It's more the thought that is there for me. This would be a great gift for a kid in need. 
  • They'd be great for birthday party bags. 
I did a little snooping in Mica's room to find some of his recent constructions to play with. These baseplates just keep the models connected, and make it easy to display them. 

Don't run out of baseplates again with this 8 pack 5x5 inch Blue plates! They are compatible with all major building bricks company's. I did find them best for what they are suited for - baseplates. I tried putting one on top of a construction, and it didn't fit as tight as the Lego ones. They do keep your creations together for small models, and make it easy to carry and display them.

These are ideal for group building with family, friends, and building clubs.  

Recommended for age 3 and up. Not for DUPLO sized blocks. The plates are not affiliated with or endorsed in any way by Lego, a registered trademark of Lego Systems.

Do you have kid in your family that likes to build? I find that my kids build the sets 3 or 4 times, then abandon that to make their own things.

Lil Pumpkin builds sets sometimes although she mostly likes to build her own random stuff, which I like as well to encourage her creativity and imagination.

I collect minifigs and think these would be great to use to display them too :)

Allison was all over Lego last year. This year she's over them. I am sick to think how much I spend on them last Christmas and she didn't even play with them for a whole year!

I think it is awful how much Lego charges for a piece of plastic.
