Sluban M38-B0516 Postbox set review

I'm pretty sure that this is a new 2015 set put out by Sluban brand bricks.  It doesn't have any English description but the set number is M38-B0516.  It comes with a minifigure, a baseplate, bricks to build a mailbox and a bicycle.

Here's how the back of the box looks like.

Sluban's minifigures aren't compatible with Lego minifigs.  They have a slimmer leg and arm design and the head is attached to the torso via a post, which allows the head to be placed in a tilted position.

Here's the assembled mailbox and baseplate,  You get two stickers for the letter and the mailbox.

Here's the bicycle.  It is teal in colour with rubber tires and white spokes.  It comes with a yellow stud that serves as a bike rack.  There is a pink basket that attaches to the bike handle bars.

The set comes with quite a few extra pieces.  I really just wanted the set for the bicycle as you normally have to buy a much larger block set to get a bike.  This set only cost me $1 USD on ebay.
The bicycle and mailbox will work nicely in a city type setup.  I'll probably throw away the minifig.
