I know what you're thinking "It's not Lego, it'll be rubbish", well actually no, Wilko Blox is very good, and fits together tightly and aligned just like Lego, not like most cheap versions seen in B&& etc!
Anyway, noticed they had lots of the Blox sets reduced, eg The Ice Cream van set was £3.00, now £2.00, which includes 2 minifigures.The had lots of others reduced, and even sell loose bricks Pick'N'Mix style.
My son is a big Lego fan, and has now moved onto Technic, but gave this the thumbs up, and couldn't resist buying a set!

First heat! Yay
Bargain at £3 still I reckon. We've few sets and yeah maybe not as smooth together as LEGO but just as much fun if your on a budget

These are terrible. They fall apart unless you super glue them.

Are you just making assumptions, or have you actually tried them?
This isn't like most cheap building bricks, which lets be honest are rubbish.The beauty of their Pick'N'Mix bricks is you can try before you buy! I'd agree, maybe not as smooth as Lego, but my son was able to build his set, which went together very well, all without the aid of glue! LoL...but I guess there'll always be Lego snobs!
Can you afford to be with massive price savings, and variety of sets?

This is from experience

I tried some of the Wilko blox sets when they were reduced to 37p last year, and thought the quality was appalling. Straight into the boot sale pile!

The quality of these is pretty poor, have bought them previously, they either don't fit together or they came apart. Wouldn't buy even on sale

Really sorry but have to vote cold. My son had 2 of these sets bought i got so frustrated with it falling apart without even being played with they got chucked. solution....my lil boy saves up a bit longer or if we see cheap sets of real lego we put them away.

I also thought they were useless.

I'm voting cold since you use LEGO in the title. It is not LEGO, so don't use LEGO in the title.

It pretends to be Lego, but it is not Lego, so it will be rubbish. This is one of the most fundamental truisms of the universe.

Its a good deal but I wonder about resale value once my childs finished with it.
Lego can often retain 100% of its original purchase value if not more - Wilko Blox - Im not so sure..

I have to agree with the others above. Bought some for my son, and it just would not stay together.
It's pretty poor stuff, sorry.

False economy, buy cheap rubbish expect to get cheap rubbish.

my son got these for xmas. I wouldn't bother if it was free! so frustrating for him and me it just falls apart.

I think they missed out an 'O' in the product name.
