What It Is
MEGA Bloks First Builders Big Building Bag is a set of introductory building blocks for beginning builders. The set features 80 different chunky, colorful blocks for simple builds. Sets are available in two colors: a primary classic color scheme and a pastel color scheme, which the company intends to appeal to girls.
Why It’s Fun
The big blocks make it easy for the youngest of builders to grasp and offer a great way to introduce construction play at an early age. The set will stimulate baby's imagination while encouraging discovery, fine motor skills, and open-ended play.
Who It’s For
First Builders Big Building Bag is for ages 1 and up. Kids will, obviously, play with them differently as they develop more cognitive and physical skills, but they'll keep kids engaged over time as they explore new ways to play.
What To Be Aware Of
Blocks can be stored in the eco-friendly PVC-free bag, which also features a handy strap for carrying.
Our Special Needs contributor Emily Vanek shares her thoughts on how this product might be a good choice for a Special Needs child.
Kids of any ability need to develop their fine motor skills, which are essential for intricate movements with the hand such as grasping or writing. Stacking blocks is a great activity to help kids develop and strengthen these skills. The size of the MEGA Bloks First Builders helps immensely with these skills. The large size coupled with the rounded edges of the connectors makes the blocks easy to stack. All kids love feeling successful, and these blocks provide a sense of accomplishment while playing and building vital skills.
