This is what the Amazing Spiderman and the Lizard Techbots look like.
We had the chance to build the Lizard Model.
(If you are scanning the store shelves, look for this packaging.)
In my post about Mega Bloks First Builders, I wrote about the endless possibilities for imaginative play. As children get a little bit older, they have new skill sets to develop. They also enjoy building recognizable characters for play and/or display.
In this post, I will take you on a photo journey through our build, and point out some of the secret, built in benefits that come along with these toys.
Here, Boy One is starting the project. He has opened the box, sorted the pieces, and checked to see that he has everything he needs.
Next he checks the directions booklet, finds the pieces he needs, and assembles them as instructed. Children often want to dive in and "just do it". My boys have learned the hard way that this often leads to tears, frustration, and most often, taking the entire model apart and starting from step one. Now they take their time, double check, and make sure their work is correct.
As an RN, I know very well the importance of checking and double checking. A mistake in my field could have a disastrous, even fatal end - but in all jobs, care is important. Ask a banker who put a decimal in the wrong place, or a contractor who measured improperly how much EXTRA work, severe stress, and lost time these errors created.
Here you can see how he uses fine motor skills to build the model. Children of all ages need to develop these fine motor skills, but this is especially important for children on the Autism Spectrum.
Finally, the project is almost complete! This is where my boys really have to resist the urge to hurry. It is so close to completed, and they are anxious to play with the finished product! In this case we did have one minor problem at the end, and he was perplexed as to why the tail wouldn't go on properly. When he asked me to look at it, I saw the problem, and it was a quick and easy fix. He just needed to move a piece down one space. Whew!
Finally, the Lizard Techbot is completed! A job well done is a wonderful thing, indeed! The sense of accomplishment and the payoff of having the thing that was envisioned before the box was even opened builds self esteem, and even better, opens the door to a lot of fun!
The Mega Bloks Lizard Techbot is ready to terrorize New York! He can launch that disc, too - with a little bit of help. Isn't he a fine looking model? I also like that the pieces stay together even if the boys play rough.
