Review: 40093 Snowman

This was a seasonal set from the winter of 2014.  It maty still be available in some Toys'R'Us stores.

Box.  MSRP was $9.99 for a $0.07 Price per Piece.


Parts 1.  Lots of Slopes, Plates, and Tiles here.  I'm kind of surprised the internals of a snowman would be so colorful.  The Exo-Force Robot Arms, Barbs, and Bar Claws are nice, as is the Clip Tile.

Parts 2. Plenty of Bricks, Bricks w/Studs on side, Slopes, andbar  Plates.  A couple of Bricks w/Bar (open ends) and some Large Jumpers.

Build.  A quick 4P Frame and Station.

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+).  Another good seasonal set.
