My son loves to build with blocks and will spend hours building amazing structures, that only he can imagine. The “Mega Bloks Take-Along Builder” allows him to let loose his creativity and imagination to create anything he puts his mind to, from race cars to animal friends…the possibilities are endless.
The “Mega Bloks Take Along Builder” is a small compact set. It comes with 16 blocks inside a wheeled carrier. The handle folds back and out of the way during playtime or storage. The wheels roll smoothly on both carpeted and hard floors. The red base plate can be attached to the outside for play. On the inside, there is an area where the base plate can be set so it doesn’t slide around, but it isn’t attached to the carrier.
I love this type of “Take and Play” toy. Everything is contained inside so you can grab it on your way out the door. They are great to have on hand to amuse little ones when waiting at appointments and other adventures. My son can play while he waits and then quickly pack it up again. I especially love that it is all plastic which means I can wipe it down to help keep it germ-free and clean.
Initially, we struggled to pack all the blocks inside. We discovered that we needed to put the wheeled piece in first, directly in the center and then the other blocks would fall into place. The blocks are compatible with other Mega Bloks sets, but you can’t really fit any additional blocks into the carrier.
The combination of blocks allows your child to create amazing creations. The size of the blocks is great for little hands. There is an easy to follow instruction booklet that guides little one in how to build trains and cars but you are not limited to building those designs. If you can dream it, you can build it.
When my son plays with his tablet, it is more of a passive type of entertainment. The tablet does all the “imagination” work for him. The “Mega Bloks Take-Along Builder” encourages imaginative play without the need to light up or zoom about. I love that it’s up to him to create his own fun.
When children learn new skills through play, the love of learning comes easily. The “Mega Bloks Take-Along builder” can help your child learn colours, shapes and size and are the perfect first blocks for little builders and learners.
