|Mega Bloks Play ‘n’ Go Table demonstrated by Boy Three|
When the rest of the world comes to its senses and puts me in charge I have a very long list of legislation I will enact. One of these things will be to ensure that every toy that comes with bits must have a suitable and durable container for the bits.
So when we were given the Mega Bloks Play ‘n’ Go Table to review it was already getting a ‘yes’ from me.
Boy Three, who has just turned three, loves it. He’s quite picky and will routinely turn up his nose at proper toys and spend hours playing with toilet roll or shoe laces. However, he has played with it from the beginning.
What we like:
- The bits all fit inside.
- It provides versatile creative play. There are lots of suggestions for things to build, but as far as I can see kids get on far better making up their own things.
- There are wheels – Boy Three is firmly in the vehicular phase of development. Brrrrm brmm.
- As a table it is at a good height for play.
- It folds away easily without reference to instructions or broken nails.
- It allows a couple of children to play together.
- You can buy extra blocks to add to it. Ours is already being Incorporated with a Mega Bloks farm.
What we like less:
- If you do buy extra blocks they won’t fit in the tray.
- The table is a bit wobbly. Possibly a problem around ‘cruising’ children or those with a tendency to climb things.
- Age suggests it’s suitable from age one to three. Boy Three is already three and loves it – I’d say it’s better from, say, two til four.
The ever helpful people at Mega Bloks have a Facebook page and Time to Build Twitter account full of fun things – competitions and suggestions about what to create.
In a nutshell:
A great ‘proper’ toy with hours of playing in it. Excellent storage. Good value for money at around £25 (Amazon).
