What It Is
What It Is
The MEGA Bloks Lil Builder playset is a construction set for younger kids. With this 25-piece set, even a preschooler can build his or her own workbench and tools. There is even a pretend hard hat that is adjustable to fit kids ages 1—3. The hard hat also serves as the lid for the plastic container that holds all the pieces. Lil Builder comes with a construction-themed sticker set.
Why It’s Fun
This is a great first building set for kids, and the classic theme inspires all kinds of creative grown-up-style roleplay. The MEGA Bloks pieces are chunky enough for small hands to work with as their fine motor skills are developing, and they stay together really well. The set inspires a lot of creative play as kids pretend to hammer and screw in nails using the tools they've built. The included hard hat encourages children to pretend being builders—perhaps like workers they see in construction sites in their neighborhoods.
Who It’s For
MEGA Bloks Lil Builder is for ages 1 and up.
What to Be Aware of
While the workbench is easy for little kids to put together, mom and dad will need to offer assistance when putting the tools together.
We found that the hard hat lid doesn't stay on top of the plastic container very well, so always pick up the container from the bottom and not from the lid.
