The LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Birmingham currently has a veritable smorgasbord of polybags for sale, including a number of 2019 releases. I had the opportunity to visit at the weekend so I availed myself of the opportunity to acquire them.
Among them was 30545 Fish Free Builds - Make It Yours, which costs £2.50 for 39 parts. It might not seem like terrific value but it provides a lot of fun.
The idea of the set, as you can probably tell from the name, is to build fish. Instructions are not provided but a sheet with inspiration is. It's not hard to build the examples, thanks to the colour coding of the parts, should you wish to.

OK, so they are not going to be troubling the editors over at Brothers Brick any time soon but it was fun to fiddle about and create models that passed for fish with just a handful of rather nice colourful pieces.
£2.50 well spent, I think, and a great little impluse buy for kids to play with in the car on the way home from the Discovery Centre. Until they drop the parts down the back of the seat, that is...
