A pre-Clikits Clikit from the 70s?

Yeesh. Huwbot's really committed today.

Very nice printed pieces. Hey Lego, I’d buy a tonne of these.

I didn't know the Scala brand was that old. Looks like it took a twenty year break before it came back with the dolls.

@Nick: The two Scalas bore as much relation to each other as the current Friends line does to the 90's computer game.

It looks huge, as a Pendant logically. May we consider it an UCS Pendant then?

Oh man, old Scala! I've bought a couple of the printed tiles from these, they make great paintings for walls

Clikets alert! Wait, this is not Clikets, it's Scala, but still

My sister had one of these. Even as a kid, I thought it was silly. Then again, I'm a boy.

I suddenly remember my young mind being blown by the idea of purely decorative tiles on Lego jewelry

Well, it was bound to happen...

That's nice, but it's not clikits!

Love that 70’s artwork on the tiles.
I’m definitely stealing @RangerSnow’s idea of using them as minifig paintings

That kid in the picture looks related to hide the pain Harold

Actually some of those tiles, especially the wreaths, would great as a mosaic or frieze in a roman style villa or something...

This is a really useful set. The tiles in it would make really great wall art in a build. Same with the clothing clip--there's uses for it (I am thinking of getting one to attach to a Power Functions remote; but may have to glue it; as clutch power alone doesn't hold it on too well). And looking at Bricklink, each piece in this set is not too pricey (about 25 cents for each 2x2 tile; a buck for the clip), despite it being 40 years old.

Yeah, it's a Scala set, but a whole lot handier than anything produced in the Clikits line. With the exception of one part, the necklace, this set is 100% what I view as LEGO.

Hell yeah, proto-Clikits!

I love those old Scala pieces. And contrary to Clikits those were actual pieces like printed tiles.

Wearing tilework around your neck has never been so stylish!
Jokes aside, this set looks incredibly cosy. That Scala logo's adorable, as is having cute European children show off the products. Not to mention the tiles work excellent as, well, tiles!
