Josiah absolutely loves building blocks and Mega Bloks have been a staple in our home for as long as I can remember. We first began with the bigger blogs that are easier to use, which are the ones Liam now plays with, but now Josiah has moved on to smaller, more complex sets. His eyes lit up as soon as he saw his new Mega Bloks Blok Squad Construction Set.
About the Mega Bloks Blok Squad Construction Set
All missions are possible when you team up with the three Construction vehicles of the Blok Squad Construction Site! Build the Construction Vehicle 4x4 - a worker’s truck with optional trailer designed to haul more than a truck alone. With your Blok Squad Construction Worker, easily drive from the street right into a quarry! Construct the Track Loader - a big canopy, heavy lifting tractor with a huge shovel and tracked wheels. Move across any terrain and hoist the heaviest stones with your Blok Squad Construction Worker at the controls. Assemble the Road Roller - a heavy compacting machine that instantly crushes dirt, gravel and asphalt flat. With the help of your Blok Squad Construction Worker moving it into position, assist in making new paths and roads for Bloktropolis!
Band together with all three Construction vehicles to square-off a construction zone, dig out a quarry and level out the area to make it secure for your next skyscraper!
Ideal for children ages 5 and up!
Josiah is 4 years old, so I was worried that he couldn't quite get the pieces together, but he did just fine. Instead of the blocks for younger kids, these actually build a variety of trucks. Both of the boys love construction vehicles, so this was perfect. Josiah went to work putting together his blocks while little brother watched and couldn't wait to play with the finished project. A few times I had to help him snap some pieces, but for the most part, he did it all on his own.
What I also love about this playset is the ability for kids to use their imagination. Josiah pretended he was on the construction site, building a house, hauling rocks, and digging for treasure. This is a great set, especially for only $19.99. Kids 5+ will enjoy the extra challenge this set brings and the fun they'll have after putting together all the vehicles!
