I received a set of of Mega Bloks toys to facilitate this review but all opinions are 100% mine.
If there’s one thing I’m learning as a mom of two boys, it’s that boys love to build. My four-year-old is always putting blocks together to create all sorts of buildings, spaceships, cranes and garages. We’re at a weird stage right now, though, where he seems too old for his bag of Mega Bloks (he got those for Christmas three years ago) and a little too young for most of the more intricate building block sets that require lots of help from Mom and Dad. But, when we discovered the Mega Bloks First Builders™ Fast Tracks™ Raceway, all our problems were solved.
Mega Bloks First Builders™ Fast Tracks™ Raceway
This new set comes with four easy-to-build tracks, colorful blocks, two mix-and-match race cars and a sheet of stickers to customize your creations. All pieces are compatible with Mega Bloks First Builders sets, so having these pieces have given new life to our previously-owned Big Building Bag as we add extra blocks to create our own designs.
And, since it’s designed for kids ages 1 – 5, it’s perfect for both my boys. The toddler can have fun sending cars down the ramps over and over, and my preschooler uses his imagination to build endless amounts of different race track creations without stumbling over complex instructions. In fact, he’s used the photos on the box as a guide to build the two formations shown (I love the visual learning involved as he builds what he sees, instead of following step-by-step instructions) and then takes those apart and creates his own. He’s been in our playroom for hours, dreaming up new ramps and driving his race cars around. I love that these toys are fostering his social and creative independence — all while he’s having a blast! Even little brother loves to get in on the action.
