Mega Blocks Lil Vehicles

Mega Bloks Lil’ Vehicles

There are a few things that W loves right now. Cars and trucks, balls, blocks, and Pocoyo. We  have Mega Blocks everywhere and I’m always stepping on one car or another. So when we got the opportunity to try out a few vehicles from the Mega Bloks Lil’ Vehicles First Builders collection, I knew they would be a great fit.

I also put on some shoes because I knew we would have blocks everywhere. Somehow W never seems to step on them but I do. And if you’ve stepped on one before, you know my pain! Oh, the life of a mother.

Sonny School Bus & Dylan Dump Truck

When the Mega Bloks vehicles arrived, I loved the bright, primary colors. Each vehicle had a friendly figure driving and W was thrilled to discover that the drivers could be removed. The dump truck included 6 blocks and the school bus included 6 blocks as well. The blocks are compatible with all Mega Bloks 1+ products. So they were a great addition to the Mega Bloks we already own.

W loved the size of both vehicles from the moment I got them out of the packaging. He is a fan of opening things and putting other things inside. So Sonny School Bus was great for him because the roof opened to store blocks. He also discovered that you can fill the school bus with other cars! The same is true for Dylan Dump Truck. W had collected all sorts of small toys and enjoyed driving them around in the back of the dump truck!

W plays with the Mega Bloks Lil’ Vehicles at least once a day if not more! I like them because they seem to be just the right size for him. He has a lot of smaller cars and trucks but not many that are on the larger side. I’ve found that is more challenging to find vehicles that are bigger and appropriate for younger children. The First Builders vehicles are designed for ages 1 to 4 so they are perfect for W.

I also like that they have a minimal amount of stickers on them. I’ve learned that the first thing that happens with new toys with a lot of decals and stickers is… W manages to pick (or lick/chew/who knows) them right off! Within a day, a new toy can look beat up. But that has not happened with these Lil’ Vehicles. Even after a few weeks of play they are in great shape! They are easy to clean and have proven to be durable so far!

Dylan Dump Truck and Sonny School Bus are great new additions to our home. And I haven’t even stepped on a block! You can learn more about all of the products by visiting Mega Bloks on Facebook.

    The safety of the toy. Bright colors. I make sure there are no small parts or anything to smash his little fingers. He love to be able to roll around his big brothers cars and trucks, so these Mega Blocks are awesome!

  4. I look for toys that hold up well, first. Then I love toys that will interest my younger toddler but that will grow with her (something she won’t lose interest in or grow out of quickly).

  5. I look for durable, educational, and dual purpose toys! (otherwise they don’t last very long before they’re in the goodwill pile)

  14. I look for durable toys that will last longer than a year. So far that is anything with wheels. I love it to have an educational aspect if possible as well

  15. Sherry Compton says:

    I look for toys that will be fun for the kids but made to handle their not-so-gentle playing. While it is ok to have some noisy toys, I also want to have quiet ones, too. Educational toys and colorful toys are always great.

  16. A toy that will allow them to play independantly as well as together.

  17. I look for toys that are age appropriate and durable!

  18. I look for durability and eco friendliness.
