Great idea but really need to not use China to manufacture. All the pieces are just mixed in different bags. It would be great to not spend 80% of the time searching for one piece. Do it like Lego does, have sections in the instructions and have one bag match that section. That way its much easier to find the pieces you need.
John, thanks for your suggestions. We have looked at having these produced domestically, but we would have to double the price from $80 per set to $160 per set. Most models with over 1,000 pieces require some searching for pieces. We have tried to find a nice balance in packaging the bricks otherwise the costs would even be more expensive.
We think this will be a gift that will involve the whole family.
We purchased this to give to our in-laws for christmas. I don't know how they like it or how easy or hard they thought it was to put together. If I find out, I will update my review. However, we also purchased a Bountiful temple for ourselves and I have left a review under that temple.
Its good to work with others to open lines of communication.
