I’ll be honest with you and say that when it comes to those “building stuff” kind of toys, I only know of the brand Lego. Typical, isn’t it?! I know there are others out there, yet I suppose I never needed to know any others. But then I heard about Mega Bloks and had the opportunity to review it and I thought it would be a great chance to see what else is out there.
At first, I thought it would be a good toy for the little ones, my godsons, but it’s geared towards older kids, ages 5 and up, so at least one of them could play with it even thought the little one did have fun with the figures that came with it. I was able to get the “Police Force Pursuit” set to try out and they loved it. It takes awhile to build the sets, as it would with any of these kinds of toys, but once everything is up, it’s a great toy. Albeit, my imagination isn’t what it used to be, but I had fun pretending to be a cop and “save the day” or have my godson “rescue me” from danger.
The pieces are small, so be sure to keep them away from babies or small children who might put them in their mouths, but they’re also quality pieces that I believe won’t break easily over time and use. We’ve only played with it a couple of times, but I can already see that there’s more to “building toys” than Lego, and I’m happy to know it.
