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:. If this review leads you to develop an interest in something, do let me know, нудисты днепропетровск positive reactions might lead me to do a one-off import session of a limited number of different boxes. In this review it is important to know that I have not bought any boxes of original LEGO tm past for myself to build, except the occasional board game.
This is mainly due to the нудисты днепропетровск designed and complex building blocks used these days, and indeed the last boxes I did buy, that prevent real creativity. This is a нудисты днепропетровск of one or two boxes of a brand, randomly bought.
Chance may have played a part in my conclusions and Нудисты днепропетровск guarantee can be given of the quality until a good number of different boxes of a single brand have been evaluated by two or three level-headed people. Simple, нудисты днепропетровск, good looking, just with a нудисты днепропетровск of Chinese characters I cannot read. Well, up next are the booklets, I feel that all нудисты днепропетровск them are a bit too concise for the age advertised on the box.
I have my doubts нудисты днепропетровск the complexity of a single step will be correctly executed by all children. But in a way this was sometimes also true of the genuine article all those years back.
Sluban did its best to resemble the genuine booklets, with a small block indicating the parts нудисты днепропетровск be used in a step, displayed next to the actual layer of parts to be added in vibrant colours, on top the faded colours of the previous step:. They employ a similar tactic of using the blocks next to each step to show how a portion of that step should be built.
This breaks a little from the ideology "Gather your tools first, count them, then build" but it does add a little нудисты днепропетровск the clarity and ease of it all. All in all it is hard to make a choice between who has the best booklet, because they are both pretty decent. Because the KAZI and Enlighten use a similar tactic, I choose to save a little space by only showing the marginally better Enlighten booklet:.
Building the kits turned out to be very easy for a 30 year old adult with Technical education. No suprise there I suppose. So I decided to keep an eye on the brick finish and quality along the нудисты днепропетровск, as well нудисты днепропетровск test their proper compatibility with the original branded stuff. This last part because I had heard horrible comments about that quality of the knock off boxes.
I started out with building the KAZI set, of which I bought two because that meant outrageous discount in a trade-spectacular end of March. Both boxes contain the same parts and extras, nothing left to chance there. I had not really expected otherwise. What was fairly obvious when нудисты днепропетровск this set is that there is limited quality control on the molding and printing equipment. Most parts go easily on and stick нудисты днепропетровск, but some have slight disfigurements that make them hard to apply.
Some parts end up being a bit crooked. There are no big problems with building and нудисты днепропетровск can be completed in a fairly straight forward нудисты днепропетровск, but at some points I had to wonder: I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of it, but on one of the sides the "Police" print was set too far to the left, нудисты днепропетровск it an "olice" helicopter on that side. The fit to normal LEGO was acceptable, although the alignment is not optimal.
I would, however, not advise it on account of increased risk of wear and tear on either side. How right was I? You will find out. нудисты днепропетровск
The first thing that caught my eye about the set was нудисты днепропетровск great finish of the parts, things looked familiar, smooth and reusable. Not only that, while building I actually got a little bit giddy of the smooth fit of нудисты днепропетровск part onto the next. Clearly these parts had some time put in to make generic parts stack in a neat way. Nice imaginative constructions using mostly basic нудисты днепропетровск in a good colour scheme.
I was also amazed to find that all нудисты днепропетровск parts fitted onto real LEGO tm parts without causing any direct damage or stress. There are minor differences, and you can see the real brand has more experience in producing the parts, but even the skeleton with the treasure chest caught my eye, because it actually felt a bit rattly, without falling apart.
Also on the figurines the joints feel good, the hands snap in, allowing easy rotation without constantly falling out. The Enlighten kit really lifted my spirits tonight. I had planned on giving away all the end products, having someone in mind for this set as well, but I think I really king of want to keep it!
нудисты днепропетровск Well, I picked the fire squad set with my mother in нудисты днепропетровск, but after writing and reading-back this review, I am actually hesitant about giving it to her.
The brick quality was clear immediately, not-quite-alike and not entirely in alignment. Нудисты днепропетровск also caught my eye in the first few steps is that the bricks supplied were smaller than would have been efficient and sturdy. This is a valid business strategy, but to the more discerning little builder it might feel bit of a hassle.
And it certainly does not add to structural integrity. So on the one hand Sluban wins here because of the нудисты днепропетровск of the bricks all standardon the other hand I think a few extra parts could have helped the design greatly to reduce some unfavourable edges. Until suddenly the arms of the figurines started falling out on cross drafts. This sparked a session of close inspection of all things moving and snap-in and it turns out that actually the нудисты днепропетровск of these kinds of couplings are all a нудисты днепропетровск iffy.
This combined with some unfortunate construction planning unfortunately puts this brand quite a bit behind the KAZI model. I am not so much disappointed in the brand, because it was highly affordable, but I am once again disappointed in "my colleagues" in the toy-import business.
Also, this set does seem to fit okay нудисты днепропетровск LEGO tm parts, but again not perfectly. Once again I would not throw them in with the bunch.
Before I make an end-tally of the scoring I would like to point out that on basic enjoyment, versatility of the bricks and looks I would score LEGO нудисты днепропетровск as follows:. The blocks are versatile, they look good, the colours are nice, all the finish and нудисты днепропетровск required for the theme has been put on neatly and the theme is nice and well thought up.
I think Enlighten did a great job of recapturing the glory days of "Buy a boat, build нудисты днепропетровск castle". Now, that scoring may be influenced by a little nostalgia, but if you agree with me that all these space ships and dragons and robots that cannot ever build a нудисты днепропетровск house or car, even if they wanted to, are not worth the bags of money you spend on them: Look into the Enlighten sets and let me know what you find.
As stated during the review: That is not to say that I am at the point of just chucking the Enlighten parts in with the big bunch. After all one should always consider: That said, I do think, from this one experience that the Enlighten parts have a нудисты днепропетровск, very low risk нудисты днепропетровск actually sustaining or causing damage when mixing it with LEGO tm products.

Prior written consent and all that mumbojumbo. Good manners I call it.
