Mega Bloks Barbie Toys

23rd December 2012

Hey last minute shoppers,

Are you looking for a gift for a little person who loves Barbie and loves to build things? Then these might do the trick.

Meg Bloks just released their new line of toys this month, featuring the ever popular Barbie. They’ve previously introduced lines with Hello Kitty, Smurfs and Skylanders, just to name a few. Yes, I’m naming what is all over my house right now.

My six year old LOVES the Hello Kitty line and she’s constantly playing with them and taking the sets apart and building her own creations. They really do amuse her for hours, so I knew the Barbie line would be a hit with her as well.

There are several Mega Bloks Barbie Build N’ Style sets available right now, with various price points, including:

The great thing about these sets is that they can be built and rebuilt a number of ways. Currently, my six year old’s Barbie sets are having a meeting of the minds with her Hello Kitty play sets, and her brother’s Halo set.

She also likes that the Barbie mini figures come with outfit options, and even hair accessories. Yes, some of these pieces are TINY and if you have normal sized hands or man hands (ahem, like me – I blame childbirth) then you may need to let the little ones take over with dressing the Barbies.

If you have a little fan who loves to build things AND loves Barbie, I think these would be a huge hit. The smaller sets would make a great stocking stuffer as well. They are geared to the 4+ age range and are available everywhere now!

Happy Holidays!

Mega Bloks Dragons Universe

30th November 2010

I recently hosted a party, sponsored by Mega Bloks Dragons Universe for my son and his little buddies (and his sister of course). Before the party, the majority of the kids had never played with these toys, including my own. When the huge box of toys arrived, my son was thrilled and very excited to try them out. We sat down together, and he helped me put the toys together (some really simple assembly was needed). We had the opportunity to try out the Deluxe Dual-Blast Dragon Hunter (#95213) and the Ultimate Action Dragon Destroyer (#95214) – both of which also came with dragons and dudes (at least that’s what my six year old called them).

They were HUGE hits all around – even my daughter had fun playing with them. There are many moving parts to each ship and sound effects that make playing with them “super cool mommy!”

We also received an assortment of Dragons Universe Eggs and Pods that were extra special loot for the attendees totake home, along with a Dragons Universe CD to play with. My son enjoyed the toys so much, he checked out the display at the local Toys R Us, to see what other components he could add to his birthday/Christmas list. I was also pretty happy with the toys – I thought both ships were really impressive, and easily amused the kids for a long time. I’d say that’s a definite win, if only for some precious me time.

To learn more about these products, check out the Mega Brands Inc. website, and find them on Twitter and Facebook.
