Review: 30188 Cute Kitten Polybag

This is a newish polybag available from Toys'R'Us in the United States.

Bag.  $3.99 at Toys'R'Us.  Price per Piece is $0.07.


Parts.  1x1 and 1x2 Technic Bricks!  I need more of both of those.  Cheese Slopes, New Headlight bricks, Friction Pins, 1x2 Mod. Plates w/Bar (closed Ends), Jumper Plates, are what stand out to me at first glance.

Build.  Here's a little mecha that's similar to the old Mechaton Classic.
I took a picture of the two of them
together so you can get an idea of the scale.  In fact, considering the Budget Frames craze sweeping the Hangar, this could be a good starting point for someone looking to get into that race.
The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Below.  (+5)  
(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?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  As a parts set or a Budget Frame competitor, this set is a good choice.
