I recently put together one of your StarWars sets with my 5 year old son. It was a "microfighter"set, rated for ages 6 through 12 and it contained 97 pieces.
1. Stop making different colors of grey.
We had four different shades of grey in our box of bricks, which meant that even when I found the long-piece-with-four-bumps-and-a-knobby-part-on-the-end, it was useless until I found it in the darkest shade of grey.
2. Please restrict yourself to only 20 different shapes of bricks.
Maybe things won't look as slick, but I promise you - your customers, and their parents, will suffer fewer headaches and/or tantrums.
3. Make your instruction booklets so they self-destruct after the first construction.
