I so wanted to go to the Brick Amazing Sale in SM Megatrade Hall 1 on Feb 2-5 but I wasn’t able to. I was frantically searching for pictures in the net to see what I have missed out.

Luckily, my sister in law went there and got pictures for me. So, it was like I was there as well. She said the place was huge! And the selection is really good. The Scooby-Doo sets were selling out fast. She wanted to get the Mystery Machine but it was already sold out when she arrived. However, there are some other goods she was able to get.

What sounded really nice were the Seasonal Lego Set like the Easter Egg Painting, Valentine and Thanksgiving. They are being sold for around 300 Php. (Photo Credits: Google)

So, here’s what you can see in the sale… have fun!

This is my first Sluban, but definitely won’t be my last. I was able to complete the van without it falling apart. Good job! And the minifigure’s head is moving. So is the dog’s head.

Overall, seems to be for girls as it has pink colored bricks. And cutesy stickers. For 150 Php, it was worth it.

image

The set has tons of extra parts, even Lego don’t give as much extras. Especially big pieces.

image

What could be improved… Probably the instruction manual. It was only a flyer, hence concised.

image

I like the idea of a selfie stick. Too bad, the minifigure can’t hold it properly. But I don’t mind.

Super excited to see other sets. So far, it’s on my approved brand list.

This set is simple for Edward to finish in 1 sitting. I like the concept and the playability of the set. Some of the parts, I also intend to use for Swashbuckler.

There are 4 minifigures available, sadly, 2 of which are repeats from other fire sets. I like the Fire Chief minifigure. It has a walkie-talkie and megaphone. Cool! The wrench and the ax, we got tons from the rest of the fire sets as well. The vehicle looks cute, seems to be Fire Chief car as only 1 minifigure can ride.

image

The garbage can is bothersome as the lid won’t firmly fit, so we opted to hid it instead. The string in the gas station is all tangled up for now, I guess when we play with it more, it would look better.

Now, the extras…

This set is my new favorite. We got this on the one day sale of Toy Kingdom at 20% off then SM Advantage had an additional 10% off. Now that’s a bargain.

I like the set because of the boat, and it’s the first set we had that has a TV. Super cool and cute at the same time. Edward enjoyed playing with it as well.

You can put the boat on top of the van. The minifigures have life vests as well.
image

Or you can ride the boat with an oar. The set has 3 oars.

image

The back is opening where you can see the TV, bed, table and cup.
image

The top compartment is the storage area for the oars anf life vests.

The girl minifigure is now tired…

Super cool set.

On the way back to school from Lucky Chinatown, we passed by this toy in 999 Mall. Since Edward wants a Lego drill, I’ve decided to give this brand a try. After all, it was only 80 Php.

It’s supposed to be a 3-in-1 toy but they only provided one instruction pamphlet, for the drill. No issue for me, as I was really into the drill.

For 80 Php, I’m happy that the parts were complete and is locking completely. Unlike other brands where some of the parts doesn’t fit at all or there are missing pieces. It’s not so tough to combine the bricks as well. In fact, Edward was able to assemble some parts. He is only able to do that on Lego brands, since the rest of the brands are really hard to combine. Some can even make my hands ache.

But since it’s only 80 Php, the pieces easily fall apart. It doesn’t have the locking ability of Lego. Haha, I know it’s obvious. Just would like to emphasize the reliability of Lego. Of course, the price difference is too big. In Amazon, the drill is around 10 Usd.

Overall, happy with the product. Will try to look if there are other items we can play on.

Yesterday after buying school shoes, we dropped by ToysRUs to browse toys. Edward initially picked up a Lego Bulldozer set, we asked him to return it as it was expensive. He then selected a Tow Truck set. We asked him to choose between a Car Transporter and Tow Truck. He chose the latter because of the Minifigure.

Since he didn’t take a nap, we asked him to open the set tomorrow when Mr. Sun is up. He was teary eyed but agreed. I told him he could sleep with the toy and he did.

The next morning, as soon as he was up, he looked for me and was pointing to the sun. I said, “Oh, Mr. Sun is up, what does that mean?” He said, Lego, open Lego. And he was all smiles again.

Yup, a Lego fanatic here.

Hi Folks! I grew tired of looking for Duplo patterns where I don’t have the parts in the end. So, I did my own patterns, take a photo of it, show to Edward, give him the parts and make him follow it. Easy huh?

Here are some of the patterns we made. Note, the second one he did by himself. He doesn’t want to follow the pattern I made. Now that’s a different problem. Haha.
