What do your kids want under the tree for Christmas? A three pound tub of building blocks from ByThePound.ca, of course.
So I first looked at these prices and thought that they weren’t that great. Each three pound tub is between $25 and $29. The shipping is dependent on where you are but ranges from $10 in Ontario to $25 to the territories and Newfoundland. Full shipping details are available on the website. Almost all the buckets are $25 but clear blocks are $27 and glow in the dark ones are $29, The bricks are compatible with all major brands.
So that doesn’t sound like an awesome deal, right? $35 to $55 depending on what you get and where you live. So I did some research and found that this is actually a pretty good deal. First off let me show you what you’ll get if you order one of these three pound buckets of bricks.
- 106 pcs – 1×1 dots
- 106 pcs – 1×2 dots
- 106 pcs – 2×2 dots
- 106 pcs – 1×4 dots
- 318 pcs – 2×4 dots
- 53 pcs – 2×8 dots
- 53 pcs – 2×4 [thin dots]
If you were to buy these by another major, very litigious building brick company, you would pay over $175. You’d get free shipping but it’s still more expensive even if you are ordering the most expensive tub to the most expensive location. For the other brand it’s about $.21/brick and for the ByThePound.ca bricks it is only around $0.065/brick for the most expensive bricks AND the most expensive shipping. If you’re looking for a building bricks, welcome home.
