I swear this being another Valentine’s Day polybag is just a coincidence. Today’s set, 40051 Valentine’s Day Heart Box, sucks. There, I’ve said it. You can move on with your life now, or keep reading to see why.
There’s only one positive thing about this set, and that it is heart shaped. But just in case you didn’t think one heart shape was enough, there’s a second, smaller heart shape on the front of the… heart.
I guess you’re supposed to use it as a handle. You can grab it and swivel it open to reveal a storage box. It’s rather shallow and and doesn’t offer a lot of storage space. Laying the heart down, the rotating lid actually blocks access to the storage space making it’s usefulness almost non-existent. Nothing locks the lid into place so it freely rotates a little too easily.
It provides a spot for the jumper plate to attach to the face giving the second smaller plate-built heart an anchor point. But why are the headlight bricks white and not red?
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This thing sucks. 40051 Valentine’s Day Heart Box is the worst storage box ever. It is frustrating to use making it literally useless. Yesterday’s chocolate box is the far superior storage build which all future storage boxes will be measured against.

You Can Win This And Every Other Polybag I Review This Year
I’ll be raffling every polybag I review this year in one big lot, all 260 sets (with the possibility of more). Each set will be individually stored in a ziploc baggie complete with the extra pieces, instructions, and the actual polybag bag it came in. The cost of a raffle ticket is just $1 USD and you can enter as many times as you want. Send a PayPal payment to firstname.lastname@example.org for $1 USD for every ticket you want to purchase. DO NOT send one payment for multiple entries i.e. do not send one $5 USD payment for five tickets; five $1 USD payments must be made instead. Raffle is open to everyone in the world except where raffles are illegal. Be sure to put “POLYBAG RAFFLE” in the notes section of the payment in order to be entered successfully. Winner will be drawn sometime sometime in the second half of 2023 and contacted at the PayPal email address the payment was sent from to arrange for delivery.
