    The Build
    The build was very easy and quick.

    Completed box and hearts
    I do love the hearts!

    Completed Box
    You cannot really open the top with the heart, you have to hold the sides or the heart comes off. When I look at it, I really want to open it by pulling on the heart, but that really does not work well.

    The box is pretty small, but certainly large enough for a good sized diamond ring, if anyone is looking to get engaged. :clap:

    Final thoughts
    I think the box is cute, although it is very small. I’m always fooled by LEGO’s photography and think it will be bigger than it is. Other than a few pieces of loose change and maybe some paperclips, I’m not entirely sure what the box can be used for. You could use it to hold cufflinks or wedding rings. The play value is very low for kids, as far as I can tell. I do think it is a cute piece, however, it would be much better to purchase on sale!

    Build: 3/5
    Pieces: 3/5
    Price: 2/5
    Play Features: 2/5
    Overall: 3/5 It really loses points for usability/playability, but I would give it a 4/5 if someone who was to use it for an engagement ring or to gift an other piece of jewelry ;-)
