We received this made-in-Japan Basic 511 recently in exchange for an honest review, and oh that joy that this inspiring toy imparts! My five-year-old sat still for HOURS during the weekend building one model after another, we had to “forcefully” drag him out for a playground break!
Why I love ❤️ this toy: (1) Whilst Lego requires advanced techniques and sometimes specialised elements to achieve building outcome with cursive surface or rotational / different degrees turn, LaQ makes them possible like a “piece of cake” by just repeatedly using 7 different parts: Square and triangle pieces, five types of “connectors” (three-sided clips, 90 degree turn, cursive, and “ordinary” joints of two different widths). The set has a massive 650 pieces in 6 primary colours (Including 30 unique parts consisting of mini and large wheels / shafts). The instruction booklet has 12 intriguing models. Once we became familiarised with the parts (which didn’t take long since there are just 7 types), we get the Dinosaur, Dump Truck, robots and other self-created models completed breezily and almost stress-free (even my five-year-old thinks some of the structures were surprisingly “too easy”). We are impressed and loving the super cool models that can be done by this product of true genius!
(2) The set includes a blue plastic storage case divided into three compartment for the major shapes, connectors, and special elements. I find it handy and organised. (3) the instructions are thorough, well-illustrated, and labelled-accurately with number references for each part. The pieces can be easily snapped (with sound!), clicked, and pulled apart. Even the boy can independently build substantial parts of the models just by following the pictorial instructions.
Thank you LaQ for introducing us such a game-changer toy!
This Models includes some special parts which we need when we made cars and faces. Love it !
Basic 511 - 12 Models, 650 Pieces
My boy loves this!! It’s a great kit that has a large amount of pieces that you can make many 2D and 3D models With and love that this also comes with the wheel attachments to make vehicles too! 😊
My ten year old grandson is building complex creations of his own design with the LaQ set. He prefers the LaQ to his Lego.
Thank you Diane for sharing your positive feedback on LaQ. These reviews encourage us that the Australian and NZ market are interested in a different construction build like LaQ. Thank you for your continued support.
