The Boy and Me – Get Building with Thomas

We got sent a few presents to review in association  with my tombola, I dont want my children to be that spoilt so I shared the prizes around with some other bloggers who I knew would love to help me out.

You can find the wonderful The boy and Me over here and this is her review below, obviously with the help of Boy.

The Boy discovered the wonders of Mega Bloks last Christmas when Nana bought him their 3in1 Play and Go table. It was a great success from the word go, with him taking the lid off and sitting in the table to watch Christmas Day television. Soon after he learnt how to use it to its full potential, building walls and towers.

When the lovely Tired Mummy of Two asked me to help her out by reviewing a product for her very clever Christmas Tombola, I of course agreed. She’s managed an amazing accomplishment in collecting the promise of 190 prizes for her fabulous competition, and I am in awe of her achievement. A Thomas the Tank Engine one of these has been donated by MegaBloks, and I have the pleasure of reviewing one of the sets.

The Mega Bloks Diesel Bucket is an incredibly nifty playset which is part of the Mega Bloks Thomas & Friends Collection for pre-schoolers aged 3years +.

Take a look more closely at the ramp that Diesel has just sped down. You’ll notice that it’s a two-part ramp. That’s because the green section is the box that all the Mega Bloks pieces are stored in, while the orange part of the ramp is the hinged lid. How clever is that? Nothing can get lost and it is easily tidied away afterwards. It also makes the set incredibly portable, the perfect toy to take to a relatives house for an afternoon trip or family meal.

When it arrived, The Boy was eager to break into it and he played with nothing else for a further hour and a half. Nothing! He sat pushing Diesel down the ramp, building the side-buildings, experimenting with the gates etc. He was completely and utterly captivated. That was over a week ago now, and of all the toys that he has (and he has a fair few) it is the one that he has repeatedly played with for a sustained period of time. He loves it so much that I have added one of the other sets which works in the same way (also a box that transforms into a playset) to The Boy’s Christmas list.

At £9.99 this is a perfect toy for any pre-school aged child and will provide hours of entertainment.
