My son has loved building sets since he was a toddler stacking wooden blocks and now that he’s seven years old, he has traded large, simple projects for smaller, more complicated construction toys. Last Christmas he received a KRE-O Transformers set that was one of his favourite construction toys for months afterwards. And when I heard about the new KRE-O CityVille Invasion sets, I knew in an instant that they would be a hit with Zackary. That’s why I was thrilled to be chosen as a KRE-O CityVille Invasion ambassador and given samples of the new line to build with my oldest son.
KRE-O CityVille Invasion provides the ultimate good vs. evil experience. With the destructive Dr. Mayhem at the helm, villains are swarming the city determined to gain control of the Sonic Power Generators. But luckily for the citizens of CityVille, the Special Ops Squad (S.O.S.) has been called in to save the day! The KRE-O CityVille Invasion sets all feature a combination of heroes and villains in situations that will keep children involved in hours of imaginative play after the construction is done.
The KRE-O CityVille Invasion sets also have all kinds of fun features that any young builder will love. Sonic Motion was one of the features that Zackary was most excited to test. We experienced it first with the Skyscraper Mayhem set. Once the construction of the vehicles and skyscraper was complete, Zackary was able to use the Sonic Motion base not just to add sound to his games, but also to trigger movement in various parts of the set! I especially loved the revolving helicopter blades on the KRE-O CityVille helicopter.
The other thing that I loved about these sets is that they left the plotline up to my son once the constructions were complete. Zackary is in a “bad guy” phase right now and so he often decided to take the side of the villains as he acted as the nefarious Dr. Mayhem and directed his team of evildoers. But I know from experience that over time, my son will create new stories in which he swoops in to save the day as the heroic leader of the S.O.S. Whether he’s putting the sets together or playing with the finished creations, he stays entertained for hours with KRE-O CityVille Invasion!
