Mega Bloks Building Blocks Bag
Advantages: Chunky blocks, easy to hold and clean. Very stong plastic.
Disadvantages: None for me.
I bought this bag of building blocks not long after my first grandchild was born almost 4 years ago. Decided to buy it because I bought it on special offer at the time and thought they would be quite useful for the future. Building blocks are really good for any child to build things and learn how to stack blocks etc.
These blocks come inside a strong transparent plastic bag, the bag has a zip at the top to fold back as a lid. The zip has never let me down zipping it open and closing it etc. It also has a handle at the top of the bag so that it can easily be transported around the home or to take to another home if needed. The handle is made from a strong cloth material and anyone can easily place their hand inside the handle because there is a lot of room for larger hands.
There are 80 blocks in the bag, each being different shapes and sizes. They are really chucky blocks and made of a really strong plastic. They can easily be washed if they get dirty by just wiping them with a damp cloth. They are brightly coloured blocks too and attractive looking for the little ones. There are red, yellow, blue, and green colours.
Because these blocks are quite chunky and a good size, they are ideal for toddlers to build towers or anything they want to build. The blocks click into each other perfectly and remain in place. They are very easy to also pull apart when the child wants to build something else. They are easy for the child to hold in their hands and ideal for toddlers. Toddlers always place things into their mouths and these blocks are safe because they are large ones and the child would be safer using these blocks than the small type. I always watch my grandchildren when they play with these blocks because even though they are safer blocks you just never know if they would choke on them if left unattended. Safety should always be taken in my opinion.
My grandchildren have had endless days playing with these blocks. We like to build ships, houses, trains and lots of different varieties of things. I bought these blocks over 3 and a half years ago and they are just as new as the day I bought them. They have had a good old battering over these years and have washed very well. They are so light for my grandchildren to hold and my little granddaughter is now 13 months old and she can easily hold them comfortably in her hands.
My grandchildren love these blocks, after they have played with them, they just pick them up from the table or floor and place them back into the bag and I just zip the bag and they are ready to use again. Because they come inside a carrying bag, it means my grandchildren can always find the blocks and don't have to search in toy boxes for the blocks and none get lost.
I paid just £10 for these blocks on special offer at the time I bought them, like I said earlier in my review I bought them a few years ago. I think at the time they were priced at around the £15 mark. For the usual price, I think these are excellent value for money and even better value for the offer price. I have often seen these on offer around Christmas time or in the New Year. They are extremely good quality blocks in my opinion and well worth every penny.
These blocks I would say would ideally last for many more years to come and would be super ones to pass down the generations if looked after carefully. My grandchildren take very good care of their toys and so these blocks I am sure will keep for their children.
What I also like about these blocks is the base of them is flat and so they don't tip over while using them to build things. They sit nicely on surfaces and on carpets and hard floors.
I think these are a must have for every household with children. They are ideal for grandparents homes too. My little grandson has carried this bag of blocks when he has been with me to visit my mum, my mum doesn't have many toys at her home and my little grandson sometimes can get a little bored while visiting. So he just carries his bag of building blocks to have fun while visiting his great grandma. So ideal blocks for transporting from house to house very easily. The full bag of blocks doesn't weigh very much and are not heavy to carry. They easily can be placed in a cupboard or toy box or just in the child's bedroom or play room.
These are ideal and affordable to buy for a gift for a child for a birthday or Christmas present. They are suitable for both a boy and a girl too.
I am so pleased I bought these blocks, we have had hours of fun using them and building lots of different things together. They are an extremely good buy and worth their price.
I give these 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
