When I was growing up, I didn’t play with blocks very much, not Legos™ or Mega Bloks™. I was much more of a tree climbing, bikes and Barbies™ type of gal!
However, my daughter, step-son and husband just love blocks. Princess loves her pink Mega Bloks.
Who got the most enjoyment out of the Mega Bloks Blok Squad Construction Set, you may ask?
Why, my 4th child, the Hubs! My husband loved building with these after the kids were in bed! He even set up a little display and picked out which “guy” got to sit in his “truck-dozer hybrid”. (Just so you know, it was the guy with sunglasses)!
There is a LOT to this set, 218 pieces to be exact. It was all a bit too much for me, so I set the hubs and Princess to work (this set is recommended for ages 5+. I, however, used parental discretion as Princess is 4 1/2). The set has very, very small pieces.(Please keep away from small animals and very young children).
They loved building together and using their imaginations to create. They didn’t create just a truck or a front loader, they created a hybrid! They set up scenes and just had a blast using this set. The set includes pieces to make a 4x4 truck, a front loader, little construction signs, 2 workers and even stickers! It was a lot for a very affordable price. (They retail for $9.99 USD).
Hubs, Princess, Big Brother and Tater (when he gets old enough) will get years of enjoyment out of this set. Mega Bloks are a wonderful way to get everyone bonding and building.
*“Blok Squad buildable playsets introduce kids to everyday heroes with themes such as fire patrol, police, and construction. Blok Squad is perfect for kids, ages 5 and up, who have transitioned from mini blocks to micro blocks and are ready for more detailed builds.”
