The Hows and Whys of a Lego/Brick Subscription Box Service (Brick Loot Review)

I-N-Stein

I knew there were subscription boxes for pretty much everything you could possibly think of, (I wonder if there are fancy condom subscription boxes. Not curious enough to go look. ) but it didn’t occur to me that there would be a Lego/toy bricks box option.

I met the owner of Brick Loot at a conference, and fell in love with her business story. I want to see them on Shark Tank. Basically her son came up with the idea to start a brick/Lego lovers subscription box, and he’s the 11 year old CEO.

Beckett isn’t quite rabid about Legos yet, but he is starting to play with them more, and when he does, he’s transported fully and deeply into his imagination. To be fair, playing with a stick transports him deeply into his imagination, but we all know how cool and beneficial Legos are, right?

So here’s what I really like about the Brick Loot boxes:

  1. They are carefully curated for me and have a theme. I don’t have to go stare slack-jawed at the Lego items in Target and then walk away with nothing.
  2. Kids go nuts over subscription boxes, because they are special surprise gifts that come to them in the mail each month. They are exciting!
  3. They make PERFECT kid birthday gifts. I sweat and cry and tremble all over when Beckett gets a birthday party invite and inevitably end up getting some lame-ass gift last minute.
  4. They don’t contain only Legos, but an assortment of bricks and related fun items.
  5. My kids were busy for, like, ever. Fen joined us to help put together the Mad Scientist Lab, while Beckett and I put together I.N.Stein.
  6. It’s a great way to slowly build a bricks collection without dropping $100 at a time.

I’m trying to think of any downside I experienced with this box just so I can potentially give anyone a heads up, but it was just a lovely product and a lovely experience.

It was fun to get the card that summed up what was in the box:

This is the face Beckett makes when he is very concentratey: Cracks me up every time.

  1. I like the idea of a monthly gift of legos for bday gifts! My son would have loved that. Now we just have two giant bins of lego pieces that he plays with from time to time.
