There are two things that LP loves – building towers and cake. So when we were given the chance to review the Mega Bloks First Builders Build A Bakery set I thought it would be a match made in heaven.
The set contains 70 blocks of varying sizes in pink, purple white and green. It also comes with a set of stickers to make the Mega Bloks look like a more realistic bakery and they were easy to apply and quite hard wearing.
LP loved that the Mega Bloks Build A Bakery set looked like a bakery and had different sections that she could play with once they were built. The set comes in a handy zip storage bag which had pictures of the things you can make and I used this is a guide to make the first pieces for LP to play with. It’s great that in time she will be able to learn to build the bakery herself from copying the images or just using her imagination.
The Build A Bakery set would make a great addition to a Mega Bloks collection but would also be great as a stand alone toy as LP is happy to play with it by itself rather than with her other Mega Bloks sets.
The only thing that I’m not too keen on with this set is that it’s very pink. LP loves it but I would rather it was a bakery made in more neutral tones but I’m sure there are parents out there that love the pink option and so it is definitely meeting a demand.
LP loves her new Mega Bloks set and it has really helped her imagination as she role plays baking cakes as well as the typical Mega Bloks building activities.
The Mega Bloks First Builders Build A Bakery has an RRP of £19.99 and is available exclusively at Argos.
