Brick Builder’s Club is a monthly box for Lego lovers. Cost is $26.00 for a single box, but there are discounts if you choose to subscribe for three, six, or twelve months. The year long sub is the best deal coming out to $20 per month. Shipping is additional however, even on the year long subscription.

This month’s theme was arcade, and I thought they did a great job of following that this month. Admittedly, I’m not much of a gamer, but I still was able to figure it out… Ok, lies, it was on the top of the cards again this month (you’ll see below). Hopefully they’ll keep doing that for simpletons like me!

I’m really impressed each month with how many fun goodies they manage to stuff in these boxes each month.

Each month, Brick Builder’s Club ALWAYS includes a poster. I adore them. They are always really witty in a nerdy kind of way. I’m not sure what to actually do with them all, but I need to figure it out.

Also included every month are five trading cards. They don’t always relate to the theme, but this month they actually STATE the theme. Much appreciated Brick Builder’s Club! I think the artwork is great on these, and I’m always really excited to see them when my box arrives.

There is a t-shirt in every box also. They usually depict something from the month’s theme made out of Lego. Being that I’m pretty old, I think this one is AWESOME! Pac-Man t-shirt?! Yes please!

In the beginning, the boxes didn’t always include a boost pack, but the last few months they have been in every box. The boost pack is a bag full of random Lego pieces to help build up your collection. Included in the bag is a card with a challenge on it. If you complete the challenge and share on social media, you could win some free legos!

The box always includes a Build Book which talks a little about the monthly theme. But more importantly, it includes instructions for the month’s build. Usually. It actually didn’t this month, but let’s pretend it did and look at the plans anyway!

This month we built two small items. The instructions above were for the chariot, and we also built Gimil from the Lord of the Rings to ride in it!

Often the pieces for the build come in a resealable blister pack, but this time they came in a box. The instructions for the build were included in the box rather than being part of the build book this month.

The builds often look really intricate and difficult to put together. Fortunately, while they ARE intricate LOOKING, they are really easy to put together. I don’t think a child would struggle, though they may need some assistance with some of the tiny pieces.

Brick Builder’s Club often includes some small extras each month. Often the extras are stickers or pins, but sometimes they’re something totally unique. One month we got a slap wrap bracelet, and another we received a hackey sack! So you just never know. This month since we had two items to build (that’s a lot of Lego in the box!) we only received a sticker extra. But it’s super cute!

I’m not sure why, but this makes me giggle.

Also included almost every month is a custom lego that has the box name and the month printed on it. I love the idea of something special like that just for subscribers. It’s nice to feel like you’re getting something really exclusive. You can see this month’s custom lego up at the top of this page.

I thought Brick Builder’s Club did a great job staying with the theme this month. As always, the poster was totally my humor, and I thought the build was really fun.

Do you have a little Lego builder in your house? This is definitely a great gift idea! If you’re interested in subscribing, click on over to Brick Builder’s Club and sign up!
