Mega Bloks have been some of my kids' favorite toys ever since they had the eye-hand coordination to stack them together. These blocks are large, so they are easily assembled by little hands. Rylie and Bryce love to build super tall towers, and then have even more fun knocking them down. We have several bags and tubs of these great blocks, and my kids never tire of playing with them.
Mega Bloks recently introduced First Builders, their new line of preschool construction toys. First Builders products consist of the classic Mega Bloks, building sets like farms and castles, wagons, and cute Lil' Vehicles. We recently received two of the Lil' Vehicles to review - Dylan Dump Truck and Sonny School Bus.

Laugh and learn as you and your child wheel this bright yellow bus back and forth. Use the included First Builders blocks to build on and around the bus, creating a different and exciting toy every time. With Sonny School Bus by Mega Bloks, you and your little one will have loads of fun
Bryce was excited to start playing with his new friends! These bright colored vehicles with their friendly expressions will put a smile on any child's face. Of course Bryce had to first figure them out and quickly realized that Dylan will really dump out his haul, while Sonny's roof opens. Their wheels roll, and many trips have been taken around our living room.
Each Lil' Vehicle comes with six Mega Bloks, but Bryce decided that wasn't enough to build a "really big tower", so we had to get one of the many tubs of Mega Bloks out to add to the fun. Bryce decided to dump them out, and then Dylan helped him clean them up by carrying them back to the tub.
Even though Rylie is almost 5, she can't resist playing with these great blocks and joined in on the fun. They decided to build towers on top of Dylan and Sonny.
They picked their colors and went to work, seeing who could build the tallest tower. The trucks "talked" to each other during the building process, and it was fun to watch the imaginative play that these little vehicles sparked in my kids.
I'm not sure why my kids are obsessed with building towers, but I think it might be because they have so much fun knocking them down! Regardless, the tower building went on for a while, and then they would drive their towers around until they toppled over.
These Lil' Vehicles are great toys for little kids! They are easy to play with, and provide hours of fun! The recommended age on the First Builders toys are 1-4, which is right on. Of course big kids can join in on the fun too...I have been known to make a tower or two myself.
Dylan Dump Truck and Sonny School Bus retail for $9.99 each. They are excellent quality toys and are definitely worth that affordable price. These would make great gifts for both boys and girls! But you might want to pick up a bag of Mega Bloks to go with them...six blocks only build small towers.
