We were recently sent some Mega Bloks First Builders for Little Man to review but I knew that LP would be involved too – She loves building and loves her bright pink set of Mega Bloks!
The Mega Bloks First Builders is a lovely bag of Mega Bloks containing 60 blocks and is aimed at 12m+ although Little Man has been chewing on Mega Bloks for months already! The Mega Bloks come in a zipped storage bag with a handy carry handle and I love the fact that Mega Bloks has incorporated a reuseable building bag into the packaging design.
The Mega Bloks are two different heights that give an extra level of play value – Even I had to think hard when I was putting blocks together! The primary colours of the blocks make them a vibrant addition to any toy box and there are just the right amount of blocks to build with without being too many and overwhelming.
Little Man loved holding the blocks, hitting them against each other and pulling them apart once I’d stuck them together. As his coordination improves I’m sure he’ll love building with them too – He would knock the blocks together as if he was trying to build but hasn’t yet got the dexterity to put the blocks together.
LP on the other hand loved building a full range of things with the Mega Blocks First Builders, loved finding the colours I asked for and worked hard to find the ‘two’ and ‘three’ blocks when we practiced numbers with them. Mega Bloks are such a long lasting toy that I know both children will play with these blocks indefinitely.
It’s always great to find toys that the kids can both play with – together as well as individually. The Mega Bloks bag is the perfect toy for LP and Little Man to play together and they are already helping LP to learn to share. They’re a great addition to our toy box and would make a lovely gift.
Mega Bloks First Builders have an RRP of £14.99 and Mega Bloks First Builders pink range are also available as well as Mega Bloks First Builders boxes.
