LEGO Large Creative Box 10697 Review (Lego 10697)

0

Lego is famous for producing building sets that keep builders busy for hours at end putting together incredible structures and iconic arrangements. However, somewhere along the road when Lego Creator sets were launched the bigger building sets and theme specific sets took center stage and the basic building sets were pushed back. Even though Lego has always produced and sold basic building sets (Lego Creator series also had some of these sets), casual shoppers couldn’t spot them easily and thought Lego no longer sold them. To counter this problem Lego announced a separate product line (called the Lego Classic Line) that included basic building sets only. The Lego 10697 Creative Box is one of the larger sets of that series.

The set includes all the basic LEGO elements; bricks, slopes, plates, wheels, windows, doors, and arches. In addition, it has special pieces like wheels, windows, doors, and eyes. This free building set allows people of all ages to channel their creativity to produce different shapes and designs. It is also a pretty good supplementary set to have around for when you want to customize other Lego sets. This set isn’t as geared towards younger audiences as the Lego Duplo sets but children old enough to enjoy the Lego Friends Sets and the Lego Elves set will surely enjoy it as well.
