It's the 1st December - So why not give the kids (or yourself) some fun at a reasonable price.

This stuff is exactly the same as Lego, I don't know how they got away with it, however, it's great and £1 per figure in every Poundland I've been in so far, so hopefully nationwide.

LOADS of pieces, they look really fun when finished, will post picture below...

They are quite cute little models. Have to say, Santa is a little scary, he looks more like he is going to take all the presents, rather than leave them oO

On a side note, they get away with it because the last patent that Lego held which was stopping clones (which was primarily based around the connection system) expired in 1989. They have tried to get their locking system (the studs) trademarked, but were turned down on the basis that the system is function rather than design, and thus ineligible for trademark protection.

Needless to say, this has been wonderful for the growth of companies like Mega Blocks who produce some fantastic sets, but aren't quite at the same quality level as Lego. Lego has had to fight back by rapidly expanding their range and doing IP tie-ins (thus the Marvel, Simpson, Star Wars, Transformers, Jurrasic Park sets, amongst others).

Anyhow, back to the offer at hand. No Poundland stores anywhere near me (I miss working in a town near several of these pound shops), but heat added because who can say that a little Christmas Lego-esque model for a quid isn't great value?

This is the most informative and best reply I've seen in about a year! Thank you!

Jesus Christ these are hideous.

Hopefully Ashens picks these beauties up

Those years at uni obtaining your degree in Lego Law have at last paid dividends.

I saw a "Colouring In 2015 Calendar" about half an hour ago in my local Poundland, another nice wee stocking filler for little ones.

Heat ..... a little bit of fun for a quid

Hanging a colouring in book on your wall is asking for trouble!!

Well, you get the kids to colour it in first, then hang it, away from their mucky hands ;)!
