MEGA Bloks are a staple in our house. The colorful bloks are a great way for my boys to learn a list of developmental skills. My youngest son builds castles and spaceships with the larger bloks, while my oldest combines his Ni Hao, Diego and Dora mini blok sets to create a superworld.
Last week I had the opportunity to tour their showroom at Toy Fair to see what will be new this year and the company didn’t disappoint.
2011 will undoubtedly be a big year for the MEGA brand. They have numerous play sets that are geared to kids of all ages and skill sets.
Here are our favorites:
Build and re-build with the pre-school tub sets. Each set comes with all of the pieces to create a theme, while the lid of the tub does double duty as a building spot. Also, this Fall look for the new Build N Go Walker. This multi-functional toy can be pushed or pulled depending on its position. As your child’s walk improves, the walker transforms into a wagon that can be pulled along to transport his or her Mega Bloks anywhere!
