Review: LEGO Bricks & More Deluxe Brick Box

First there was the LEGO Ultimate Building Set, with 405 pieces for your child to work with. But more parents are now opting for the LEGO Bricks and More Deluxe Brick Box. It looks just like the other box, only bigger and filled with much more fun! Your child gets two of the mini figurine LEGO people as part of the 704 pieces. In addition to the usual bricks that allow your child to build whatever his or heart desires, they also get the specialty pieces like windows and doors for houses and wheels for transportation items. Of course the set comes with a basic building plate for the base, but you may want to buy more of these separately if your child needs more room to build than the single square pallet.

It's similar to how the Blade Cycle works ñ only this is a flying machine. You get two ninjas battling over a coveted prize, and a getaway or pursuit vehicle to chase the bad guy down. Your child gets to decide who gets the thrill of flying the jet fighter. In the case of the Storm Fighter, your child gets the Jay ZX mini figurine as the good ninja. Fangpyre Scout Snappa is the mini figure that's up to no good. He has stolen the gold Fangpyre staff with anti-venom, and Jay ZX wants to get it back. The two mini figure ninjas battle it out using two torches, a snake sword, and two ninja swords that are golden in color and come with serrated blades. The Storm Fighter itself is a mighty weapon - and the most fun part to build in the set. The Storm Fighter looks like a fighter jet. It's over 12 inches in length and 13 inch...
