Why Sunday Bricks recommends Classic 10698 over Classic 10696?

  1. Regular Builder – Both these boxes (lego classic 10698 & 10696) are an ideal choice but if your child really loves building atleast 2 times a week, then you must opt for classic 10698.
  2. Creativity Quotient – 10698 has 790 pieces which means there is a great variety. Different types of pieces allows your child to convert ideas into real brick creations.
  3. Larger Models – Big ideas need more pieces. The 10698 box contains so many 2×4, 2×3 and 2×2 pieces which are really helpful while building larger models.
  4. Base Plates – Every creation needs a foundation. Children enjoy building models over base plates. The 10698 classic set has multiple base plates but the size 16×16 is most useful.
  5. LEGO Yellow Container – The Classic 10698 yellow container is so huge that it can literally store over 1000 LEGO pieces.
  6. Special pieces – Compared to LEGO classic 10696, the classic 10698 has multiple special pieces. Wheels, doors, windows, arches, supports and fences are in abundance in the classic 10698 box.
  7. Ideal for Sunday Bricks workshop – Both these boxes are ideal for Sunday Bricks regular weekend workshops, but for creative building we surely recommend LEGO Classic 10698.
  8. Siblings can share – Yes, if you have 2 LEGO lovers at home then LEGO Classic 10698 can be easily shared by both kids. But if you own just the classic 10696 then its for 2 kids to share the pieces.
