Mega Bloks, Lego, toddler, preschool, review


Mega Bloks was one of the best presents my son received on his first birthday. He's now three and still playing with them and together with his little brother.

He was given a big bag with 70 pieces which was a perfect starting size. They're made of plastic and everything in the range is compatible so imaginations can run wild building and creating.

The basic set comes in a sturdy zipped bag. It's not easy for a young child to open because of the zip but when you're trying to control mess and one toy at a time that's no bad thing.

Colours

The Mega Bloks come is four bright primary colours, blue, green, yellow and red. We also seem to have picked up a rogue piece in orange so other colours are available too. The bold colours are very appealing and distinct which made it great for teaching my son the difference. As children get older you can also use the Mega Bloks for grouping by colours and maybe even counting too.

Size

The Mega Bloks are are large in size and easily slot into each other for building. This is ideal when they are around one year old and are developing muscles in their hands (fine motor skills). It also means you don't have to worry about chocking hazards.

Everything will end up in the mouth of a one year old


Building

Build it up and knock it down.

One of the most fun activities with Mega Bloks is building towers. My son has always loved seeing how high he could build it before it fell over. The other great game is building a tower and knocking it over. Now that I have two kids, the game seems to be how quickly can my elder son build a tower before his little brother knocks it down.

Creative Play

As building skills develop, you'll be surprised by what your child will create. This castle was perfect for a little dragon. My son has also enjoyed making anything from a boat to a mini table. Playing and creating with other children also helps to develop social interaction.

Add On
There are lots of different accessories you can purchase to build upon your set. We have a Mega Blok's recycling truck which has also been much loved.
