Does your toddler love building things? We seem to have a constant stream of building blocks floating from one end of the house to another!
Mostly my son loves to build “tunnels” out of his blocks. We were sent the big Farm Kit from MegaBloks to host a Mommy Party, and pretty much all he wanted to do was build tunnels to drive his cars through!
Several of my mom friends brought their toddlers to the party, and I was excited to give each kid a cute MegaBloks Friends set to play with! The Jungle Friends and Garden Friends sets have several characters to create using stickers and various block pieces. The children were all young toddlers, so for the most part they amused themselves with their own Friend sets! But I can see how block sets like MegaBloks can be a great cooperative play toy to haveas the kids get older. They can work together to build the set on the box, or use their imagination to build something totally new!
I like how each MegaBloks set comes in its own plastic container, so you have a build in storage when your child is done playing with the toys. Even the Friends kits come in a zip-up pouch – they make for perfect gift items! And, since MegaBloks are chunky blocks, they are perfect for as young as 1, but still “play-able” for up to age 5 – so it’s a toy that can really grow with your children!
We all had a fun time at the Mommy Party, and one mom even commented a few days later that her son is still playing with his Friends kit constantly, so she went out and got him some more!
Does your child enjoy playing with building blocks?
