My oldest son Zackary has always loved building with blocks and over the years, he’s developed from building huge towers with large Mega Bloks to putting together intricate sets of favourite characters. What I love about building sets is that they don’t just give kids a chance to build a fun model. The characters and models are also good for hours and hours of imaginative play once the building is complete!
Recently Mega Bloks Canada sent me three of its newest building sets to review. When I was younger, the only Mega Bloks available were the larger First Builders variety perfect for toddlers just learning to build or kids with larger-than-life dreams for their creation. But the company has changed a lot since then and now it has a variety of sets appropriate for all ages! My boys were so excited to see the Mega Bloks Fire Truck Finn First Builders set with the original building blocks I remembered from my own childhood and the Hot Wheels and Skylanders Giants Mega Bloks sets featuring small blocks perfect for older children!
