With even less parts.
If you order a HappyMeal at any McDonalds in the United States now, and you ask for the "boy" toy; you will get a super-sized-juniorized-LEGO-car.
For kids it must be satisfiying to be able to make something with little to no effort, however, being an AFOL I look at this as "degrading" the Lego Brand. I am waiting for the day when they re-relase these classics.
And yes, someone has already used one of these parts in a creation.
