expired Minion Building Block 260 Pcs $1.99 USD (~$2.81 AUD) Delivered @ DealsMachine

840
OZBARGAINMINION2

This is the 3rd and final of the 3 basic minion building block toys (there was the 100pcs and 220pcs before this).

There should be no limit per account. Hopefully there will be no ordering problems like last time or the time before. The coupon expires on 28/02/2016.

Remember, these are small pieces, therefore not suitable for children under 9. Shipping is stated as 7-14 business days, I received my 1st minion on the 11th day, but my 2nd minion took around 18 business days due to Christmas/New Years delays. This 3rd minion may take a similarly long time due to the upcoming Chinese New Year festivities, and the mail glut.

Description:
LOZ building toys have significant cognitive and academic benefits for children
Main Features:
Enhancing spatial awareness: Building toys help kids enhance their visual-spatial skills which is crucial for reading
Encouraging thinking and reasoning: These skills are what make children become well-rounded, independent and successful adults
Involving focus and patience: Children need to work slowly and carefully to be successful at creating their designs
Developing problem solving skills: They have to think quickly and readjust designs when needed

Alternative sellers are:
Aliexpress - $1.98 USD, though reduced packaging and 15-45 day delivery though they also sell Mickey & Minnie mouse for $2.98 USD each which I might get for myself
Ebay - $3.59 AUD
Amazon - $7.98 USD + shipping

7. Scroll down and make sure the Grand Total price is $1.99 USD then click on the "Place Your Order" button

Please use the method above. For the previous specials it was found that the coupons and the PayPal checkout buttons don't like cooperating with each other. Also, it might be possible to get a reduced price on the other costumed minions. Unfortunately, their supplier isn't budging much and the most DealsMachine might be able to reduce the price by is around 50c USD each. Would people still be interested?

    In case anybody is a fan of nanoblocks, these are the same type of blocks, but I wouldn't assume the same quality. I've had Pokémon and Adventure Time models from this brand, and they're ok for the price, but not exactly the same standard. Fine from a distance, but up close you can see that they don't always fit together perfectly, and when building them the instructions can be a little harder to follow. But if you're a Minions fan, go for it! It's a cool little pixelly thing to put on your shelf.
    For (presumably most) people who don't know nanoblocks, they are Lego-like blocks, but the smallest is 4x4x5mm. Tiny!

    Just finished building the previous minion yesterday. Quite tricky in parts - there were some tall sections of single bricks and some of double bricks that were very unstable until quite near the top when some larger pieces were added to support them. I had a few sections come apart more than a couple of times - but now it's complete it is quite sturdy.

    There's plenty of spare blocks in the box which could be useful as these things would be quite easy to lose.

      Who cares. It's not your problem.

    Isn't deal machines banned from OZB? Heard a lot of unhappy experience with this china warehouse merchant.

    had bought a chinadoll mobile phone from DM last year and not working and also not offer a refund! but just portion of money back and force me to keep the rubbish phone.

      Did you not pay with paypal? I always just lodge a complaint with them and the company just refund the money as they can't be bothered arguing about it. Every time I deal with these companies direct with a complaint they just give you the run around.

      I got my minion from the other deal ok, took a while but turned up.

      Then use Aliexpress. If there is a problem, even after a couple of weeks after you receive it, you file a dispute and get a refund or percentage refund. Very easy

    260 pieces and no cable ties? Impressive!

    Cheers OP! $2.92 shipped from China, versus $1 letter to send interstate

    •  

      it does make u wonder how do they do it so cheap…apart from of course the cheap labor and low(er) cost of living…

    Thanks OP! Can you post all the previous 2 minion? I missed the ones before… Also any other characters?

    •  

      I've tried contacting them but they prefer to release any further deals after the Chinese New Year celebrations, as the mass city-rural migration has already started so they're operating at reduced capacity. I will ask them again in a couple of weeks, hopefully I would also have some other deal available. As for the costumed minion characters, I don't think they will budge on the prices unfortunately. It would probably be cheaper to get them with reduced packaging from AliExpress etc.

  •  

    ordered 2 , thanks :)

  •  

    Thanks OP.
    Have taken advantage of all 3 of your minion deals with multiple purchases of each.

  •
