Mega Brands Blok Squad Construction Site Playset
My own kids are already teens, so I gave this Mega Brands toy to a good friend who just had a new baby last week but also has two older boys that will soon enter grade school. The very next day she told me that her sons, especially the five year-old, was already having a great time building various construction vehicles with the 395 pieces this Mega Bloks playset comes with.

The little boy I gave the Blok Squad Construction Site toy to this week will soon be moving into a new home that his family is building right now. For sure, he really had a blast opening his present and playing with all the construction workers and equipment -- including a 4x4, Track Loader, and Road Roller that he made with this set. I have no doubt that this young fellow and his brother will be occupied with this interactive non-electronic toy for hours creating and learning while building his motor skills while mom nurses and diapers the new baby. Come to think of it, for all those reasons and more that explains why this was so well received.
Talk about a toy or game that moms, dads and kids will all be excited about receiving!
