But in a way this was sometimes also true of the genuine article all those years back.Sluban did its best to resemble the genuine booklets, with a small block indicating the parts to be used in a step, displayed next to the actual layer of parts to be added in vibrant colours, on top the faded colours of the previous step: That said, I did also enjoy the KAZI and the Enlighten booklets.This prevents me from commenting on the newest of the new LEGO (tm) series, apart from the NXT systems, with which I have worked for the First (tm) LEGO (tm) League. Well, up next are the booklets, I feel that all of them are a bit too concise for the age advertised on the box.I have my doubts whether the complexity of a single step will be correctly executed by all children.It is a reasonably nice set, but the end result isn't as impressive as the Enlighten kit.There's some hard corners and unfortunate design edges.The brick quality was clear immediately, not-quite-alike and not entirely in alignment.What also caught my eye in the first few steps is that the bricks supplied were smaller than would have been efficient and sturdy.
The fit to normal LEGO was acceptable, although the alignment is not optimal.
They even threw in some sea-salt glitter in the boat's wooden parts.
Some results (The one upside down: The white plate is genuine Denmarkian plastic): Well, I picked the fire squad set with my mother in mind, but after writing and reading-back this review, I am actually hesitant about giving it to her.
This may be because it's a helicopter and not a boat, but on the other hand KAZI had a helicopter and those parts were a much nicer fit.
So on the one hand Sluban wins here because of the re-usability of the bricks (all standard), on the other hand I think a few extra parts could have helped the design greatly to reduce some unfavourable edges.
