Sluban Building Bricks

While on the hunt for Enlighten bricks, I came upon this set called "Sluban". I think it is more popular than Enlighten since the brand is not a knock off of Lego. It has a line of completely unique designs. The one I got below was for the girls stuff. Cute colors and theme. My only complain would be the mini figures are not as good as Lego and Enlighten. Their limbs are poorly connected. The arms easily fall off. Although what I liked is that the bricks have good grip but not as tight as enlighten. There are also extra pieces and stickers thrown in the package.

 Wheels are plastic and not rubber like Enlighten:

Heard of Enlighten Bricks?

I started playing LEGO when me and my sister inherited 1970's sets from our cousin. Since then, we continued to buy until the 1980s model. Just recently, I was able to discover a brand named Enlighten. Surprisingly, it is at par with Lego..with quality detailed bricks, just 98% inferior when it comes to the type of plastic. Enlighten Brick is nothing compared to its competitors such as Li-Gao etc. Their mini figures are also in good quality meaning nothing loose or too tight, even the figure design itself is the same with Lego.

Below is the set I bought that cost me P550 (Originally at P660) that is around $13

Compare it to the original Lego below: (which usually costs P7,000 up which is $165 up)

Only minor designs were revised from the original but it is all manageable in terms of fun factor. I will go ahead and hunt for more Enlighten sets and will post some review here. You know what this means guys? It is a breakthough for a third world country like us. In the Philippines, most families belong to class C and D which makes Enlighten sets very affordable.
