My son loves to build amazing towers and race fast cars. The “Mega Bloks Build and Race Rig” combines his two loves into one great toy.
What does the “Mega Bloks Build and Race Rig” Include?
The 16 piece playset includes the Big Rig, 1 blue truck box, 2 flame stickers, 1 yellow ramp, 2 yellow connector pieces, 4 blue single blocks, 2 red single blocks, 1 grey 1×2 block, 1 yellow block 1×4 block as well as the car which comes apart into 3 pieces.
Your little racing fan can customize the car with additional blocks or simply use the two car pieces provided. The car takes 1 AAA battery and makes 5 different racing sounds.
The truck’s blue box and the trailer portion of the truck act as a base for ramp and block pieces. Reconfigure these piece to create exciting tracks for your little racing champ!
The blue box has pegs in different directions so you can use it as a high steep ramp, or a lower ramp. The yellow ramp can connect to the back, sides and even the roof of the truck!
What Do We Think?
The blocks are up to same high quality of other Mega Blok products and compatible with other Mega Blok playsets.
Designed for children between the ages of 1 and 5 the blocks are the perfect size for little hands to hold and build. They can easily be wiped down for cleaning, using warm soapy water being careful of the stickers.
The set is easy to pack up for storage. We have filled it in a variety of ways, but find that leaving the ramp on the top is the easiest way to pack all the blocks in it. I would like to see a way to lock the blue box down for carrying, several times I have picked up the blue handles only to have everything come crashing down onto the floor.
I have mixed feelings about the number of blocks included in this playset. There are 8 building blocks in this set to create your racetracks. This is a disappointment my son who is older than the recommended age and dreams of building “epic” racetracks. On the other hand, fewer blocks means less clean up time for younger children and it can be overwhelming when presented with a large number of blocks.
The wheels of the car roll easily and work equally well on both carpet and hardwood floors.
The “Mega Blok Build and Race Rig” is an exciting playset for your little racing fan!
