There are no "Lego equivalent" blocks.

Out of curiosity, why not Legos?

how old ?    might be cheaper to get a decent PC and Minecraft ... my 7 yr old loves MC more now and saves so much money and no more stepping on lego mines in the morning before coffee.

This. There is no equal.

Do you want to find your adult son OD'd in a bathhouse with objects in every hole in his body?

Because buying Megabloks for your child now will end in your adult son being OD'd in a bathhouse with objects in every hole in his body.


Accept no substitute. All Hail the Lego.

Amazon has knockoff lego "building blocks" that look, feel, and fit just like lego, are fully compatible with real lego also.

Less than half the cost of real deal Lego

Amazon Link

Girlfriends kids love these, because you can get a few thousand for them to build whatever they want for less than a single Lego set with 500-700 pieces.

The plastic is different. They don't stay together for shit. The only good thing about them is the figures.

This and I won't even call the figures good. No one matches Lego's quality. My bro and I used to make the Megablocks cannon fodder in our Lego wars when we were kids. We hated them.

Ehhhh there kinda is. Nothing will be exactly like Lego other than lego, but the knockoff "building blocks" on Amazon are really damn close. These are like 95% close, where MegaBlocks are maybe 25% close to Lego.

Better than anything else I have found

Seiously side by side with some of my real lego stuff, they are hard to tell apart aside from having "lego" molded on the top. They fit and feel just like the real deal.

Sometime between my youth and my kids being born, my parents became immensely, ahhh, "Frugal". My six year old son asked for 3 specific Lego sets, my folks bought the crappy MegaBlok whatever knockoff. My kid was very disappoint at the least, and so was I, they suck, they don't stick together, and they are just all-around ghey.

Then again, we're talking about my Mom who gave MY fucking Legos to some dipshit kid down the street, as well as my Burton 120 "Woody".

I just built the Harrier, and a few other sets.
when I get home I will take some pics

The COD sets are awesome

There is no LEGO equivalent. They are superior. Period. Been playing with them since I first got an original set at Christmas that a relative brought back from Denmark 40+ years ago.

My kids have had all the knock off brands over the years, bought by well meaning relatives, and they all suck.

They ARE expensive, but " buy once, cry once " and all that...

I still keep buckets full of Legos here at the house for anytime we have kids over... And my adult children still get a LEGO kit every Christmas.

Lego is the single greatest manufacturer of all time.  They offer consistently high quality products at an extremely high volume.
Link Posted: 12/13/2016 4:36:06 PM EST
speaking of lego, I just went to the post office and on top of the waste box was a lego magazine ad.

Thumbing through it they have lego star wars figures with cool looking weapons. Cops and Robbers, mil guys, really cool looking stuff.

Someone 45 yrs my jr would be all over these.
Link Posted: 12/13/2016 4:42:06 PM EST
I don't know about any of the like brands, but so many of the sets at stores are theme or character based with a lot of specialty pieces. Get them one of these and let the imagination work.

My wife bought our daughter Mega Bloks and she complained the brick wouldn't start together. I threw them away. Wife complained and said she got them because of how cheap they were. I told her she wasted money when she should've just bought Lego's in the first place.

If you're poor, buy used Legos.

Sorry OP, its either Lego's, or something else, there is no "Lego alternative" unless its an actual alternative, like a scale model, or an Erector Set.
