Mega Bloks!!! A Giveaway!!!

There is nothing my daughter likes more than big, chunky, colorful toys-----and she just recently learned to build with what she calls "bocks".  She loves building with blocks but as a young little one, she has a lot of difficulty balancing blocks without constantly knocking them down accidentally.

Enter: MEGA Bloks

They are big, they are chunky (perfect for little hands!), they are colorful (hello, great for teaching colors naturally!!), and oh, can we ever build with them!  MEGA Bloks are recommended for toddlers who are 1+ years old- mainly because a child needs to have some fine motor control when using these. That being said, at 18-months-old my daughter LOVES these!!!! At two-years-old, my niece LOVES these!  At 27-years-old, I LOVE these!!!

It says so right on the packaging (a durable bag with a zipper that can be used over and over again---great for taking to Grandma's house, too!), the possibilities are endless and I have to say, we have not yet come close to getting bored with our Bloks.  We build horsies, barns, characters from our favorite tv shows and books, family members, cars, even food!

These Bloks are perfect for boys or girls, which is always nice for play dates, siblings and family gatherings--they can ALL enjoy it!

Want to know something even cooler? MEGA Bloks is celebrating their 25th birthday this year with an amazing chance for families to win $25,000 for their children's future!!  Click here for the full press release which details the contest and how to enter!

How about more cool news??? Mega Bloks is giving you the chance to win an 80-piece set!!!!!! All you have to do is leave a comment here telling me your name, email address, and what you would do with an 80-piece set of Mega Bloks! This contest will run until Sunday, 10/24 at 11:59pm eastern time. Please leave only one comment, multiple comments will not be counted.  The winner will be chosen using, a random number generator, and they will be emailed Monday, 10/25.  Tell all your friends!!!!

All opinions are 100% my own. MEGA Bloks provided me with an 80-piece bag of "bloks" to help facilitate this review.

I would use these mega blocks to practice colors and fine motor skills. They also look like a great toy to take when traveling on vacation!

Great giveaway! I'd whip these out & make a pattern tower the boys have to replicate! Little miss would love to get in on the fun & knock someones tower down afterwards! ;)

Stephanie said...

All these great ideas! I would use them to build *houses* (aka car ports for Chuck and his friends, and anything else on wheels C can get his hands on!) We love to build!

Since my kids are older, it would be good to have something like this for when younger kiddos come to play.lings

My daughter and I would LOVE to build with these- houses, buildings, towers, horse barns. Although I'm sure whatever I could build she could find a way to destroy it!

My son and I would have a blast buliding towers and knocking them over. He would also probably tell me the color of each block he touches.

Zoey is at the age where she loves to build towers out of everything. These blocks would be great to help with color recognition and counting along with building her towers!

My son, Hunter, LOVES to build also. It would be great to have these for working on fine motor and balancing!

My almost-2-year-old loves to build things up and then knock them down, of course! Did I mention he's 100% boy? :)
