Our kids were thrilled last week when we finally got some snow. We had two storms come through back to back and by Saturday afternoon, we had almost a foot of snow on the ground. The had a blast making snow angels, sledding and of course having many snowball fights. However by today, they were getting a little tired of being stuck at home (and I was going pretty stir crazy myself!). Thankfully, I had the January Brick Loot Box to pull out and entertain them.
Brick Loot is a monthly box subscription service where kids receive a box filled to the brim with the latest and greatest brick compatible products, including the fan favorite, LEGO. The theme for this month was All Aboard! My 5-year-old loves trains so he was really excited. The box contained:
-Exclusive Custom Railway Station Kit-100% LEGO Designed by BrickBuildersPro
-Brickland Express Kit
-LED Railway Station Light Kit
-The Conductor Custom 100% LEGO minifigure
The kids were eager to dive right in!
My 10-year-old had the train station put together in no time. Once again, the light kit was a big hit! I loved the details in the set, down to the newspaper stand.
My 5 and 7-year-old started the train but ended up asking older brother for a little help.
Within about 30 minutes, it was complete. They laid out the railroad tape (also a big hit) and set up the train and station.
The tape was really neat. It tore off the roll easily and while it was sticky enough to adhere to the floor, it was not too sticky and came up super easy. It can be used on both hard floor and carpet. The kids plan to use it with their toy cars and trains as well.
Once again, we were really pleased with our Brick Loot Box. It was the perfect distraction for my bored, pent up kiddos! Brick Loot is a fantastic service for all lovers of building sets. Subscriptions range in price from $23 to $27 a month. Mudpies and Tiaras readers will get 10% off one and three month subscriptions when you use the code mudpies.
