There are a lot more little boys in the family than girls, yet it seems that the girl toys overpower all the boys toys. It just seems that there are a lot more options when it comes to quality toys for girls, than for boys. Maybe I’m biased because I have a little girl and I’m never looking for boys toys until the holidays hit, but I also feel that when I am shopping for a little girl, I am faced with too many options, whereas when I’m shopping for boys I feel that I don’t have enough options.
Mega Bloks is always a brand name that I know has many options for both, boys and girls. I loved Mega Bloks before I had a baby, and the very first real toy I purchased for my little girl was a big bag of Mega Bloks! When we were asked to review some Mega Bloks sets for little boys, I thought this would be a great opportunity to see what else it out there in the world of Mega Bloks. I have plenty of nephews to review boy products for me, so I thought this would be easy! Little did I know they would have to fight my toddler for the pieces!
We received the Blok Squad Construction Site and I just want to preface this by saying this is NOT your typical Mega Bloks set. Although it is made up of interlocking pieces, these pieces actually make up bulldozers with moving pieces – totally awesome! My hubby had the most fun putting everything together with the kids and loading up miscellaneous items into the trucks. Included in the set are construction workers, so there is also room for some pretend play at this construction site!
What you get in the box: a 4×4 truck, track loader, road roller, and 3 construction workers. There are other pieces in the construction set that can be purchased separately, but I think this is a great toy all on its own! Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? Still looking for the perfect gift for a little boy (or little girl?) Mega Bloks has MANY items to choose from and this construction set is one of them! You can check out their other items at Mega Bloks, and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter to stay updated on their latest news!
