What Do Kids Learn About When Playing With Blocks?

As parents we often look for educational toys to buy as gifts for our kids, so they can learn new skills through play. Construction toys offer children many learning opportunities, such as building coordination and strength in the small muscles of their hands, while pushing and pulling blocks together. Construction toys challenge visual spatial skills, which is the art of following step-by-step instructions to create a structure that is the right size and shape. And, when children experience frustration and obstacles during the process which can lead to wanting to give up or destroying their build- they are learning valuable, life-long critical thinking, problem solving and coping skills, too! 

Over the past few months, as part of a collaboration with Mega Bloks and Mega Construx, I have had the pleasure of featuring some fun, new construction toys, which will make great gifts for kids of all ages, whether it be for a birthday party or holiday celebration.

There are different sizes and styles of blocks, which appeal to different ages. A range of price points makes it easy to find a set that fits within a specific budget, too.

When buying for toddlers and younger preschool aged children under 5, look for the Mega® Bloks sets which have larger blocks. They are easier for young children to hold and stack engaging kids in the building process as early as 1.  

Mega Construx™sets are recommended for older children. They are smaller and  arrive with beautifully illustrated, step-by-step,  color manuals to guide kids in the process as they construct scenes, action figures and vehicles, featuring their favorite characters like American Girl® dolls, WellieWishers™dolls, Pokemon toys and Minions.

A round storage tub, with a colorful, built-in stacking surface, holds 25 blocks, and rests securely in a sideways position on top of the wheeled base of the elephant.  Remove the tub, lift the lid to reveal the animal blocks. Then, stack the blocks in order to create towers and animals.  For busy kids who are on-the-go, the elephant has a string to pull, easily moving the elephant parade to another play area..
