A very overpriced building blok
Member Name: gembaxter
Advantages: Bold, large and easy
Disadvantages: Very overpriced
Oh how we like mega blocks in my house!
The first thing you notice is at the shop and that is the price. Priced about £30 for a bag of 200 blocks I felt this was a little bit steep. It is of course the first part of the "collection" most parents would buy and I definitely think Megabloks cash in on this. Many of the accesories are expensive too. I particularly like the fact that you can get a compatible table and wagon though priced averagely at £30 and £28 respectively.
Chuncky blocks allow small hands to manoeuver the blocks around comfortably and with confidence. They do provide much joy in my house building just really tall towers which I think is probably all that is needed at a young age.
They do help to develope hand-eye coordination. Being in a bag I have found that my son enjoys tipping them out and tidying up again which I suppose also aids the development of responsibility.
To build anything substantial I would think you would need a couple of these bags but for short attention spans the bright colours and speed in which something developes before you eyes is really great. Definitely one of my sons favourite toys and it is definitely helping us to learn our colours too.
Summary: A toy my son loves but can you justify the price?
