Help your Children Build their Imagination with Blok Squad from Mega Bloks - Review & Giveaway #ShopaholicSanta

Some of my favorite memories from growing up was playing with my brother's Legos.  We built cars, buildings, animals, and anything else would could think up.  I was never very good but it was still a very enjoyable time for everyone.  


My son is a very imaginative little boy, in fact he seems to reside in pretend world most of the time.  He's one of those kids that can take a clothes hanger and turn it into a shiny sword that will help him defeat evil.  

We've tried Mega Bloks before and he had a blast with them but with the bigger blocks and smaller amount of pieces, he quickly got bored and has told me that that toy is now "for babies" and believe me, he's no baby. So when my friends at Mega Bloks contacted me about their Blok Squad series, we just had to try it out!



What is Mega Bloks?
According to their website, "Mega Brands provides stimulating, creative experiences for children and families through innovative, well designed, affordable, and high quality products that are marketed worldwide under leading brands such as Mega Bloks, Rose Art, Magnext, and Board Dudes."
"Our mission is to nurture creativity in every child and every family.  We are big in construction toys and our play sets are popular with preschool children and boys aged 5-12.  We offer a broad assortment of craft and activity products mainly for girls of all ages.  Our games and puzzles entertain the whole family and our extensive offering of stationary, pens, pencils, markers and crayons addresses every need, whether school, work or play."
My Review
We received the Blok Squad Fire Patrol Station for review.  This incredible play set was a step up from the last Mega Bloks product I reviewed as it is for children 5+ and contains 956 pieces!  The blocks are smaller than usual Mega Bloks so their easier to lose but if you're careful and make sure the pieces are put away you should have no problems.  When built, this kit contains a fire truck, ambulance, a helicopter, utility truck, and fire station.  It also contains the fire fighters, their tools and a bunch of other little pieces that add incredible details to this fun set.  Josh has been working on this for a couple days now and has finally finished.  This set is absolutely incredible and the attention to detail is really impressive.  Ashton and Josh have had a blast playing with this set!  
I very highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a toy you and your son can work on together and have fun at the same time.  
Shopaholic Rating: 5 out of 5 Shopping Bags - This is one of the most impressive sets we've ever owned with the attention to detail and easy-to-follow directions.  This product will be a quick favorite for any child that finds it under their tree or wrapped up this holiday season!


Where can you find Mega Bloks Blok Squad?
If you're interested in picking up your own Mega Bloks Blok Squad Fire Patrol Station simply head over to their website to find a retailer near you.  Or head over to your local Toys R Us or Target.  It retails for an astonishing $39.99!  An incredible deal for a 956 piece set, you just can't beat that!  You can also find all of the other products from Mega Brand by visiting their website.  For more up to date information be sure to follow them on Facebook & Twitter!
