Why is the Mega Bloks First Builders Deluxe Building Bag a Smart Buy?
Built in the LEGO block and peg tradition, the Mega Bloks First Builders are called “mega” for a reason. LEGO blocks are wonderful building and educational toys, but are not recommended for very young children. Their small size simply makes them a choking hazard. Plus, young children just don’t have the fine motor skills and hand strength to be able to use LEGO blocks well.
Mega Bloks created the First Builders line to give children as young as 1 year old the ability to fine tune motor skill development, eye-hand coordination, independence and their own creativity, by creating building blocks which are larger than normal.
This allows easier manipulation for younger children but still provides enjoyment for those in the 5 to 7 year range as well, as attested by my own 7 year old. This Deluxe Building Bag includes 160 pieces, which are broken down into two different heights. Standard block and 1/3 standard block heights are included.
Also, the Mega Bloks come in different configurations. These include 1×1, 1×2, 1×3 and 1×4 blocks, as well as 2×2 blocks with straight and sloped fronts. These different widths and lengths are offered in both heights, providing for a truly limitless number of building capabilities.
Since all the primary colors are available, your child will enjoy making visually colorful and rewarding creations. Parents love the fact that these larger building blocks make for safe play, and children can sit and stack blocks for hours of quiet independent and imaginative creation.
For even the youngest children, stacking and building simple objects is rewarding in so many ways. Problem solving, eye-hand coordination and self-esteem are all boosted. Add those incredible rewards with the simple enjoyment your children will get from these brightly colored and easy to manipulate blocks, and you can see why the Mega Bloks First Builders Deluxe Building Bag is a smart buy for your young builders.
