Review: 41088 Friends Puppy Training

Let's start out a week of Friends reviews.

Box.  MSRP is $4.99 for a $0.08 Price per Piece.



Parts 1.  The 1x2 Brick w/Pin is always useful, and I really like using the 4x4 Round Plate as a base for Stations.

Parts 2.  a number of pieces in Magenta, there's a 1x2 Mod. Plate w./Vert. Bar, plenty of Slopes, Jumpers, Bricks, Tiles and Plates.

Build.  A 4P Frame, Station,
and small Terrain piece.

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+).  If you're looking for a minimalist starter set, I think this may be the one.
