The Lego Classic set 10692 is a mix of Lego pieces, with no specific end structure in mind. Yes it comes with a short ideas book, with the instructions for a few small designs like the sheep and flower you see pictured, but also a few more including a small propeller plane and a shop. The designs are categorised into easy, medium and hard building levels and illustrated with the usual clear diagrams.
But, unlike the theme sets your imagination is all that is holding you back. I like the fact you get two sets of eyes included in set 10692. We had a great time making monsters and the eyes added to them. This set is full of those little pieces that add the details to your build that you usually miss out, sometimes imagination just doesn’t cut it when you are showing someone else.
As well as the usual square and rectangular pieces you get doors, windows, wheels, eyes, axels and propellers so you can build a variety of objects, buildings and animals. The sets are brightly coloured with Lego pieces in a variety of colours; in this small set alone, there are 29 different coloured pieces. As you increase the size of the set you increase the variety of extra pieces and the number of colours used. It’s the variety that make these Classics sets so successful.
Lego set 10692 comes in a cardboard box with a plastic Lego brick shaped lid. The box is fairly stiff, but unless you have very careful children is unlikely to last a lifetime. The worst that will happen, you end up buying a different plastic storage box. There is plenty of spare room within the storage box if you want to add more pieces to the collection or combine sets and store it all in the same place.
