I don't think it was a gender thing, but our daughter has never been into playing with blocks. We bought her the Mega Bloks Build'n Learn Table, which came with a few blocks, a car and a little man, when she turned one. She barely used it. Our son, is so different. Dubz has just turned two, and has been actively playing with the table and blocks since he was 10 months old. So we were very pleased to be offered the chance to play with more Mega Bloks.
The weather has been great this week. We've spent hours playing in the garden and enjoying the sunshine and warmth. But we needed a break from the heat and enjoyed some quiet time indoors yesterday morning.
Dubz enjoyed having a big bag of blocks to play with (there were 60 pieces in the bag). He found them easy to use and to stack on top of one another. I have mentioned that I believe that we should let our kids play, so rather than advising what to build, we just let them get on with it. Dubz likes to build lots of tiny towers which he then breaks or pretends to eat. It might not sound very exciting, but he happily played for half an hour allowing me time to drink my tea in peace and quiet.
You have until the 22nd May 2014 to like the Mega Bloks Facebook page and enter to win one of four of their super cute Play n' Go Wagons. Good luck!
