Post by Paul B on Tue 18 Dec 2012, 10:44 pm

Does anybody have any experience with these? It says it is 100% Lego compatible.

I've had imitations bought for me as a child, and they're about 80% compatible. Firstly, they don't lock together as well as normal LEGO pieces do, and they often have a different look to them. Most of the LEGO imitations are cheap imports from China (rather than made in the EU), hence the lower price and similar.

Brickman LJ is right, these knock-off brands don't use the same quality plastic that Lego does.

Genuine Lego will last 40+ years, and I have Lego bricks from from the 60's and 70's that are still in good shape.
