Oh my how I love Mega Bloks! They are so versatile, not only do they nurture creative play they also feed my need for organisation! No seriously Peanut and I have spent many happy afternoons sorting bricks into colour and size towers!
So I was totally over the moon to review a Mega Bloks First Buiders Big Building Bag and A Fast Track Raceway Set.

What We Say
We've grown quite a Mega Blok stash with the big two but it has been put away for a while now ready to be brought out for Termite to play with when she is ready so I was quite surprised when Peanut and The Golden Child practically ripped apart the packaging as soon as they saw it and got right onto building!
Termite loves how easy the MegaBloks are to hold and build with and at just over 1 year old I was surprised at just how quickly got the hang of putting pieces together. The blocks are brightly coloured and really hard wearing so they'll take quite a bit of bashing/throwing/dropping, you all know the kind of treatment I'm speaking of right?
The Raceway set is really versatile as it has instructions for lots of different ramp combinations to build or you can just freestyle and create your own masterpiece. It comes with two great cars that can be taken apart and built in different combinations. And it's loads of FUN. We all played for ages with it and even at 4 and 5 the big kids didn't get bored!
I can't offer any improvements on this set or infact the mega blok range at all, it's a perfect creative toy for all ages. My only complaint is that there's so much choice I want to collect all the sets!
