Found 1st Oct 2014
Found in Gainsborough store, but also online. Great sticking fillers - the figures don't look much like lego but the blocks are good quality and fit nicely with lego products too. Some larger sets for around £7, plus the 20 mini-figure set is a bargain at £7, as are the base plates for £3.50.

They also had pick 'n' mix lego blocks in store, choose a tub, fill with the blocks you want. I was a legoland a few weeks ago and they had a big one of these in the shop, this is a bit more of an affordable way of doing it!

Saw the base plates the other day they are great value now I know they are compatible I am going to buy a couple. Thank you. Hot from me

This is a great way to cheat at building a Lego City. My city...I mean, my kid's city...has the £7.00 Blox fire station that I picked up for £3.00 the last time these were on sale (not buying the far superior £55 Lego set at the moment). From a distance...you might not notice anything until you get to playing with them. The quality isn't great but then for the price, what do you expect. Certain parts never seem to hold together on these sets and I've been tempted to use super glue.

As an added bonus, I've introduced my kids to the idea of inequality/discrimination/classism...where the Lego City fire men and women go on strike...demanding that Lego City only employ Lego City born fire personnel and not these generics! Eventually, I intend to build a part of the city where these "generics" will live. I've thought about fencing them in for added effect ;o)
