Looks like the market leader. You have to build with the bricks to notice the difference at all.
I was surprised with the overall quality of the set. The building instructions are also better than I feared.
Once assembled the fit and finish is very good.
The decorations are printed on the bricks, not transfer decals.
Plastic quality is not quite as good as the original, but very close.
Fit isn't as perfect as the original. You sometimes have to press quite a bit harder to make them fit correctly.
Building instructions are not quite as good as the market leader
The pieces came in 3 small plastic bags, with no logic to the division of the bricks into the bags.
Plastic bags are harder to open than the ones used by the market leader, and are not made of perforated plastic (so they are not suffocation-proof).
Box came a little flattened at one end.
I wish they made a Robotics Invention Set at 'enlighten' price level...
My daughter loved the set, but would have liked a few more small 'glass' pieces for the treasure chest.
I will get more enlighten-sets.
