Review: 30115 Friends Jungle Boat Polybag

This is the last of the holiday polybag sets.  Well, almost.  There was a Duplo polybag but I feel no need to review it.

Bag.  MSRP is $3.99 for a $0.13 Price per Piece.


Minifig.  Nothing useful here.

Parts.  Not a lot here.  A couple of Lever & Bases, 
Plates, Inverted Slope bricks, Clip Plate Vertical,
Rounded Brick 1x1-1/3, and a minifig Radio in
yellow are what stick out to me.  The green blob
on the lower right side is a minifig scale frog.

Build.  Fuzzy Frigate for MFZ:IO.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Above.  (-10)  
(The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.)
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  No.  (-5)
Score: -5 (B-).  I'm sure there are good Friends sets.  This is not one of them.
