Mega Bloks Construction Unit (Review)

Mega Bloks recently sent me a Blok Squad Buildable Playset to review and talk to you about.   Blok Squad buildable playsets introduce kids to everyday heros with themes such as fire patrol, police and construction.  It is a great toy for kids who are outgrowing mini blocks and are ready for more detailed builds.  Kids can also collect and combine vehicles to complete missions.

For this review I received the Blok Squad Construction Unit, which includes a 4 x 4 Truck and a Front Loader as well as a couple of Construction Worker Figures.  The Construction Unit features 218 pieces and is made for kids ages 5 and up.   The set retails for $9.99, but is on sale at Amazon.com right now for $8.67.  Mega Bloks are also available at Toys “R” Us and Walmart.

My Nephew Logan was more than happy to put the Construction Set to the test and he loved it.  He is five years old and did require a little bit of assistance in the assembly.  The instructions are pretty detailed, but clear enough to understand.  There are a number of little pieces (as you can see), so be sure and keep everything separated before you start.  Logan was still an active participant in the process and was very proud of his new toy at the end.  He just loved the front loader!  He liked it so much that he took it to bed with him and played with it until he fell asleep.  I think these toys are a great idea.  Kids get to actually create their own toy, which is both fun and educational for them.

Mega Bloks has a Family Club where you can sign up for exclusive offers, contests, sweepstakes and other promotions on Mega Bloks toys.  You can also get news and information there about any new Mega Bloks toys for kids ages 1 to 6.   Be sure to check out Mega Bloks on Facebook and Twitter to connect with other Mega Bloks fans and as well.
