This isn’t your typical legos type of building blocks. You can create a lot more and different designs. The kids can let their imaginations run wild. My Granddaughter and I have a blast building different things. You can build the designs that are given in the manual or do free range. I love the storage container! It is very nice quality and that is a huge factor for me when I buy items with many little pieces. Great gift idea that is new and different from the typical that you see in stores.
