This is racing set consisting of 50 pieces including 2 interchangeable racing cars (you can take off the bodies of these cars and swap them over so you can have a half red and half yellow car if you choose), you will also find a collection of stickers, 2 tracks and a picture instruction manual.
By following the pictures in the instruction book you will build up the race track brick by brick. You build one layer, then turn the page and you will find the layer you have made already is depicted in grey and you follow the colour bricks to build the next layer.
This is a simple track to build and it took less than 10 minutes including placing on all of the stickers.
The stickers make this set come to life as you will find race flags, Red, Amber and Green racing lights and even a winners trophy and spectators.
Both cars are placed at the top of the track ready for a race.
This set is aimed at children aged 1-5 years old.
I do find that Harry tends to press down too hard on the track of this one and breaks it in the middle, meaning I ten need to make it for him again, this has however become a game and he thinks it’s great fun to present me with broken track and shout ‘Oh No!’.
I personally would like the tracks to be a solid piece to avoid this happening but with older children from around 3 years this may not be an issue as they aren’t as heavy handed in general and could mend it themselves.
This is a nice toy for both Emmy and Harry to play with together as they can have a car each and have a race.
Mega Bloks First Builders Pony Palace
This is a very cute set consisting of 50 coloured and sparkly bricks, including swing stable doors, stickers, a Pony, a Unicorn and a fairy princess.
As with the other sets this too comes with a picture instruction booklet. By following the step by step guide you can easily make up a stable for the animals.
The great thing about these sets are they can be built in any way which creates new scenes every time.
Emmy like this one as she can have free reign in making homes for the animals – we have had huge hotel style homes and also lots of jumps for the animals to participate in an assault course.
The stickers are very cute and sparkly too which help to create a magical feel to this set.
The princess is able to ride on the unicorn’s back
Mega Bloks First Builders Bakery Bag (£19.99)
A tasty treat is contained in a large ziplock bag with this set – a perfect way to store the bricks and to help with an easy clean up after play too.
This set contains 70 kitchen themed bricks which you use to build your own bakery.
You can build an oven, table, till or even ice-cream maker, the possibilities are endless.
Create your on cupcakes, ice-creams and also add a variety of toppings to make your mouth water.
Emmy has really enjoyed ‘setting up shop’ and selling us her wares – infact she is turning into a proper entrepreneur and is trying to sell her cakes for 20p a time – just enough to pay for her favourite sweets in our local corner shop! Cheeky madam!
Harry also loves making cakes with this set and pretending to eat them, he has gotten a little upset that they aren’t real though.
