What It Is
MEGA Bloks First Builders Lots of Blocks! is a collection of 100 colorful blocks that kids can use to build whatever they want. These blocks can be added to other MEGA Bloks First Builders sets or used as a set of introductory building blocks for beginning builders. There are two versions available: one with a classic primary color scheme (red, blue, yellow, and green) and one with a pastel color scheme, which MEGA Brands intends to appeal to girls.
Why It’s Fun
The big blocks in this set 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 a child's imagination while encouraging discovery, fine motor skills, and open-ended play.
Who It’s For
MEGA Bloks First Builders Lots of Blocks! is for ages 1–5. Kids will, obviously, play with the blocks differently as they develop more cognitive and physical skills, and this set will keep kids engaged over time as they explore new ways to play.

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.
