X-Pod

Fall 2004 Toys
Ages: 4 - 15 yrs.
Manufacturer: The LEGO Group
Price: $3.49
Review:
X-Pods are small theme sets of Legos with 36-50 pieces with instructions to build six or seven simple models (only one at a time). The plastic cases (pods) can simply be used as storage for the pieces, or they can be incorporated in the construction of a large robot or alien creature. Themes include vehicles, creatures, robots, and planes. The small number of pieces and simple models make these a good starting place for the young engineer not yet accustomed to building a model using instructions.
