5 LEGO® Secrets to help you get more out of your next LEGO® Purchase.
Contrary to popular belief not all LEGO® is best purchased through a traditional store, what the big retailers don’t want you to know is that second hand Pre-Loved LEGO® is cheaper, just as fun, and offers some unique advantages over the store-bought experience. In this article we will explore some of those key advantages, and what it means for you and your kids the next time you want to purchase some LEGO®.
#1 LEGO® doesn't have to be expensive
NOT ALL LEGO® HAS TO BREAK THE BANK. LEGO® is a unique toy, not only does it last forever, but it all works together too, meaning LEGO from the past works with today’s LEGO®. This makes for a vibrant second market that is much more affordable than the store-bought experience. However purchasing second hand LEGO® is not for everyone. How do you ensure quality? a convenient and professional service and that you won’t get ripped off by people selling their old collections? Here at Bricktastics we address all those problems with our expertly sorted LEGO® Creativity Packs. We ensure to provide a convenient and professional service. We also maintain the key advantage of buying second hand LEGO® which is affordability.
How affordable? Up to 50% cheaper per brick in fact! allowing you to buy more in greater variety.
LEGO® HAS A LOT OF THEMES!
Did you know LEGO® has had a lot of themes over the years? Here at Bricktastics, we sell many of them over 13 in fact, some of which you can’t buy any more too!
#2 Buying LEGO® in bulk packs exists
LEGO® loves to sell kits and they are very good at it, but there are few options for low cost open-ended creative play in the stores. They usually also contain the exact same contents too. Second-hand offers the advantage of variety and having no two purchases be the same.
Bricktastics is the only online retailer that Specialises in Creativity Packs for Kids. Designed specifically to provide large quantities & variety of Bricks & Parts, encourage creative play & nurture innovative thinking.
You can even choose your theme for kids who like specific types of LEGO®!
#3 Wish your kids could play with the same LEGO® you did? They can!
Ever wondered where all that cool LEGO® you use to play with when you were a kid has gone? Pirate, Castle, Bionicles LEGO® etc: The answer is: it’s no longer made and to get your hands on it is an expensive venture often crossing into the realm of high-end collectables pricing.
The good news is that Bricktastics has solved this problem, now you can buy all of your favourite themes at a price point cheaper than current store-bought LEGO®. Our Minifigure and Creativity packs are full of hard to find LEGO® parts that enable creative play with all your favourite childhood themes!
of teachers recognise a hands-on approach to learning as the most effective way to build confidence, self-esteem and problem solving abilities.
#4 Creativity doesn't come in an instruction booklet
One of the biggest mistakes we see parent’s make when buying their children’s LEGO is the assumption that “LEGO will make their Kids more creative”. While LEGO sure can be a creative activity, the way LEGO® is sold in-store currently lacks the creative elements. No child ever learned Creative thinking from a set of instructions after all.
We also find LEGO® entertains children for longer when it doesn’t have a defined “completion” point.
The next time you buy LEGO® for your kids, consider the outcomes you are after, will it encourage creative problem-solving? co-operation, teamwork, or maybe you are just after something more practical like extending the time the LEGO® will entertain the children for. If this is important to you, consider Pre-loved LEGO®!
#5 Make your LEGO® good for the environment
Buying NEW LEGO® is currently NOT good for the environment, all that plastic has to go somewhere when it’s finished being played with, and let’s face it
All of Bricktastics LEGO® products are sourced from families who no longer use their LEGO®, is in excellent condition and 100% Sustainable. This has two major benefits, firstly it helps avoid the creation of NEW plastic bricks. But most importantly it teaches your children the value of recycling and reusing toys!
