There is always a lot happening at Mega Bloks and it is apparent the designers at the Canadian company have been very busy this year. I had the chance to tour their showroom while in New York City for Toy Fair and there is a lot of great toys coming for little builders!
Heck, before I even entered their booth I was having fun…
We are super excited about Billy Beats Dancing Piano. He’s a musical friend plus, kids can build off his keyboard or hat and then store all the pieces in his body when they are done playing. Musical blocks that can be placed on his hat show the corresponding keys to some popular songs. Kids can also play their own songs or have Billy teach them a couple new ones! $39.99 (Available Fall 2013)
