It was a long time before I thought about building blocks for my kids. I always thought they were for ‘older’ kids. Until I hosted an event where Mega Bloks was a sponsor. Mega Bloks were toddler and preschool friendly blocks that fit perfectly in little hands (but big enough not to fit in their mouths), minimized frustration with the larger surface space, and fun colors and sets that made their imagination soar. I was hooked after that!
Starting at 18 months of age, kids can start building castles and cars, planes and pirate ships with the Mega Bloks First Builder Sets. All of the sets work together so as you buy sets, they are not stand alone toys. Rather, the additional sets expand the play value and the creative thinking capabilities as more pieces enable more building possibilities!
I love when my kids get sets for the holidays or birthdays. Whether it is a Disney castle for my daughter or a Disney Planes Fire & Rescue set for my older son, they work together to create a castle plane hanger or a princess airport. My kids of different genders and different ages can play together and use the same pieces. Making it a toy that fosters not only imagination, but interaction.
There are many, many Mega Bloks from which to choose; a generic tub of Mega Bloks First Builders to kick off the fun, or the smaller themed sets for a preschooler. You can’t go wrong this holiday season (or all year long) with one of them for a boy or girl on your shopping list. You can find a big selection on Amazon.
To help you kick off your shopping, I’m giving away a Mega Bloks prize pack! The Mega Bloks First Builders Fast Tracks Raceway, and the Mega Bloks First Builders 1-2-3 Count, 30-Piece (Bag) Prize pack is valued around $40!
My kids are in love with the raceway. We love to race each other with the cars and create fun tunnels for the cars to race through too! Our new favorite Mega Bloks set!
You can also see all of my giveaways here. There are over 30 that will be shared in October so check back to see and enter all of them!
Good luck and happy building!
