I love the life that this little polybag adds to our scene: I found myself a little bemused at the combination of historical (eg treasure chest), old barrel and contemporary (buoy , fins, surfboard) elements. However they are all useful and can be used with other elements.
I just like the fact that this series of polybags is catered to putting curated selections of parts that go together in the hands of builders, saving a lot of heartache and money (not to mention time on Bricklink and waiting for orders to ship). And there's just enough rarer parts to make them really desirable. About my only complaint of this particular set is it seems really pirate theme slanted, in which case the buoy and surfboard seem out of place. I think it could use some more contemporary nautical parts perhaps to make it more “sea”, or ditch the other parts and go full pirate.
I did notice that the Parrot (Part 27062 / Element 6178520) is multi-colored, with a unique mix of blue and yellow plastic. The parrot I received had a lot of of yellow, which I didn't find appealing, because I know that in real life that the blue and yellow macaw (on which this bird is presumably modelled) has a consistent coloring with blue wings and back. (Because the bag is clear, you might be able to look for the perfect parrot in the store before purchasing the set.)
For kids, I think that this set is superior to the other LEGO Xtra set that I looked at. At least here you get some animals which make for fun play. The shark piece is particular nice and I remember loving having sharks for my oceans back when I played with LEGO as a kid! On the other hand, I think this set is inferior to the other Xtra polybag when looked at from an adult perspective. Unless you really want to build your own Pirate or maritime LEGO layout/theme, there isn't all that much here that will be useful to you.
I really love these Xtra polybags as they are relatively cheap for the average AFOL and it gives you access to pieces and elements that you would not normally get outside of a LEGO set.
This set of accessories is a good complement to a maritime diorama. For a price of € 3.99 we get an interesting assortment. The shark and the parrot stand out. The piece/price ratio is 16.6 cents, but many of them are large, so it does not seem far-fetched.
The Xtra sets are a great way to get some rarish elements and well a being able to bring further details to your LEGO builds. They are particularly useful for MOC builders and those who like to create their own city scenes.
The LEGO xtra Sea Accessories (40341) is a a decent parts pack that gives a variety of water-related items.
Interestingly, the front of the bag shows that there is only one spear, but there's enough in the bag to build two. This little set is extremely simple, and a good option if you want to flesh out your displays, especially if you have a beach or ocean area in your display. I'd recommend picking some up on January 15, when they become available.
It's great that LEGO has been issuing themed-based accessory packs. It gives immediate access to some extras for that City theme for kids during play, especially for those with smaller collections. The bits and pieces all relate to themes around seas and oceans and would play together nicely with the Sea Playmat.
There is something a bit fishy about this Xtra set though; the parts are not quite so useful as those found in other sets in the range and I am not sure I would be tempted to buy a copy myself.
It's a nice little set. Not very special, but it can be useful for anyone that has a shoreline in their LEGO City. It's a lot more specific than previous XTRA sets, so I think this one will not be sold as much as the previous sets in the series.
Overall, a nice set of parts that are the perfect accompaniment to 60153 People Pack - Fun at the Beach.
With less than 4 €/$ it's good value for your money, easily affordable and a good addition to your cities beach/ocean layout. An it was fun to play around with the parts to make the photos!
