The grandson has lots of Lego and really enjoys it but being quite young still there is only so much he can manage for himself. I bought this Mega Bloks CAT toy along with a dumper truck from the same range because I thought they'd be something he could build himself without help.
The bricks used to make up these toys are the same size as Mega Bloks mini and Lego Duplo so they're suitable for about two or three years and over. They come with the same kind of instructions as Lego toys do but they're larger and more simple. So this meant that my Grandson really could have a go at building his own models.
He found it a bit tricky at first but after the first time he'd built this from following the instructions, he was able to do it again and again. The bricks go together easily and they stay in place well for playtime after they've been built too.
This toy cost me just over £10 from Toys R Us and I got a smaller one from the same range for only £5 at the same time. The bricks are a lot lighter and thinner than Lego or Lego Duplo but Mega Bloks are a strong contender all the same, especially at these low prices and with the great easy instructions they include in the boxes.
