This is not the first time I am writing about how much I love Mega Bloks for both fun, and developmental skill building.  Mega Bloks Toys Provide so many benefits!

Look at all the considerations that go into each First Builders Creation.

These special building tubs have a lot of room inside, and they have open handles, making them easy to carry.  On the left, is the Twinkle Castle, the Farm is to the right.

Here are the contents, unpacked and arranged by color.  Please note that there are stickers, special figures, and an instruction guide included.  There is also a textured top so little ones can stand up and build right on the top of the tub.

As a parent, I was able to appreciate the amount of communication required to get the set completed as designed.  There is also quite a bit of problem solving involved.   Thee communication includes a lot of very direct language.  "Let's look for a big pink block with four bumps." and some thoughtful questions as well. "Where should we put the pony?"

The final product came out fantastic, for both sets!  The stickers add a very nice touch.  The blue pieces on the castle are very sparkly and the tiaras pop up when each princess is put into her place on the set.

Here is a closer view of the farm.  you can see all of the stickers.  They look great!  Also included are the cow, sheep, farmer, chicken, and tractor.  It is a very bright and colorful set.

I thought both of these sets were fantastic, and would make a wonderful gift for little ones.
