Wilkos block sets £5 instore - St Austell, Cornwall

19
Found 3rd Feb
Found these in my local Wilkinson's store, probably selling off to make space for Easter eggs! Normally the are good value any way but these where stupid. £5 each for the space rocket and luxury yacht, there was a petrol station and dragon family set for the same, a hot air balloon and and Jeep with trailer for £3.
And the icing on the cake, (I would have exploded if I saw it when I was five!) The military battleship for £20!
Not sure how many pieces but it's over 1m long when assembled!
Also these blocks are compatible with Lego.
Not sure if this is store specific and I presume stock is extremely limited.
They also had other toys on sale pretty cheaply.

You’ve probably just kicked off a snobbery debate on here but as a Lego lover one can’t deny the improvement and overall value on the Blox range in recent years. I was pretty impressed with the fire station I came across over Christmas.

Having just built a few of the smaller set with my nephew my opinion of the range has changed. The blocks do stick together really well, the only complaints I have, certainly with the smaller sets if they have what I’d call weak points, held together by two studs or so, not ideal for play, and the instructions for building could be better. Besides that they are superb value for money. More so reduced.

Exactly, I'm not claiming they are AS good as Lego, but the price is ridiculously good compared with Lego. And the fact that if it all ends up in the same box later on it can all be played with together is a bonus.

Same! Self confessed Lego snob but good value if you’re into them

Because it's a similar toy and is compatible. Not everyone is a Lego snob but if the mods want to remove that tag feel free.

OP mentioned “Lego” in the main body - it flagged for me too

*Turns up nose in disgust

Agreed.

I can’t afford to build a pure Lego city so I incorporate elements from the Blox range...then play out a class war in my city. The city is built on Blox roads much to the dismay of the Lego city mayor!

By the way, with regard to the weak points, I just buy extra loose pieces and swap out the parts.
33193481-OCNI3.jpgCheers OP tidy for £15, bought for my nephew's but tempted to make the rocket myself
Also available in the Yeovil store, not a huge selection of sets but they’ve got a lot of the ones they do have

What a load of blox... I’ll see myself out 😳
It must be nationwide as it is in London, Kingston store too
I dislike these, BUT for some people, they may be perfect. Heat added.
I got this for £15. Absolute steal for what you actually get. The truck itself is 2ft in length. Was going to post it on here but completely forgot.
