In our home, LEGO is much more than a pastime. It’s a way to express yourself, a way to learn. So, you can see how this would start to get a bit expensive along the way. Recently, I was able to get two sets of four-pack base plates, in blue and grey, from Cornucopia Brands to review and these are my thoughts on this.
Disclosure: I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own. I would never recommend any product that my family or I wouldn’t use. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations. This post contains affiliate links.
Now that the legal things are out of the way, on to these plates!
It’s not the first, nor will it be the last time, I get my kids off-brand building bricks as long as they are compatible with name brand LEGO and MegaBlocks. It helps me offset the costs and allows me to round out their collections. We’re still on the lookout for LEGO Friends’ style ones, if anyone would like us to review them (wink-wink, nudge-nudge).
These plates are actually pretty great. They are slightly thinner, I suppose, than the brand name ones but as long as you’re not trying to actively break them, you’ll be fine as this doesn’t affect their use in any way, shape or form. The plates hold onto the bricks incredibly well and are very easily for little hands to use.
Being as they come in packs of four large 10″ by 10″ plates, they would be great to make a tray or table with. All together, they measure 20″ by 20″, giving you plenty of space to make lots of amazing creations.
We were able to test out the grey and the blue. The grey would work great in a city, inside a building or even on the moon! The blue would be wonderful for lakes, rivers, underwater or even a bathtub. There is no limit to what wonders you can create with LEGO and other plastic building bricks, and having plates in these or other colors, really completes the setting.
See you guys later,
