First Builders Mega Bloks for Girls
My daughter received the First Builders Mega Bloks for girls for her first birthday and it was an instant hit. Right from the start she was magically drawn to these blocks and every day would ask to play with them.
The Mega Bloks Big Building Bag comes in two color schemes: Classic, a primary color scheme that is geared toward boys, and Pink, a pastel set geared towards girls. The blocks are designed for children between the ages of 1 and 5 and are really wonderful for stimulating creativity and developing fine motor skills.
None of the blocks are small enough to be swallowed which is really great for the younger kids who still put everything in their mouth.
What You Get:
The Big Building Bag contains an 80 piece set of beginner building blocks in a variety of shapes and sizes. The pink set includes five difference colors: white, lime green, purple, pastel pink and hot pink. All the blocks are stackable and come in a variety of sizes including singles, short doubles, tall doubles, tall triples, short quadruples, tall quadruples, short squares and tall squares. There is also a car base with four moving wheels so your child has the option of creating a variety of vehicles and driving them around. All the pieces store away neatly in the eco-friendly PVC-free storage bag that zips closed at the top and has a handle for carrying.
While there are no building instructions included with the set, there are a few images on the bag to help get the imagination going. There is also a free Mega Bloks First Builders app available with instructions for approximately thirty projects including dinosaurs, baby animals, a sail boat, a cottage and a jet airplane.
A Building Set That Grows With Your Child
One of the beautiful things about this building set is that it grows with your child. On my daughter's first birthday she was intrigued with the set and loved to play with it but it did require lots of active participation from either myself or my husband. At first my child found it to be a bit challenging to push the blocks into place but she was quickly able to manage building with the single blocks. Her manual dexterity, fine motor skills and coordination developed significantly between her first and second birthdays and I could see her playing with these blocks differently as she grew.
At the time of this writing my little girl is two years and two months old. She is a whiz at building vehicles by herself but still loves to have Daddy build her castles for her animals.
There are Many Add-Ons for the Mega Blocks First Builders Bag
While there are a large variety of different vehicles, animals and buildings that can be created with the First Builders Mega Blocks for girls, you may come to a point where you and your daughter want to build bigger and more advanced creations. The beautiful thing about the Big Building Bag is that it is completely compatible with all the other Mega Blocks First Builders sets. So for a future birthday or Christmas gift you can keep on expanding her building block empire.
For this upcoming Christmas we purchased one of the Mega Bloks First Builders tubs to expand our daughter's set and I can't wait to see her face on Christmas morning.
Any of these sets would make a nice addition to the Big Building Bag:
This building tub contains 33 pieces to build a pony stable with doors that swing. A pony and little girl figurine are also included with the set. All the pieces store away neatly within the tub.
The Mega Blocks Fairy table play set comes with thirty pieces including 26 pastel and sparkly First Builders blocks, princess stickers to decorate the play set, a princess figurine with pop-up tiara and a flying unicorn pony with removable wings. There is plenty of storage space for the blocks within the table. This set would certainly add a magical element to the Big Building Bag.
Add more sparkly towers and turrets to your Fairy table or Big Building Bag with this fun 30 piece set. This bag also includes a fairy princess with pop-up tiara.
