We’ve had the chance to try a variety of Mega Bloks toys from both the First Builders and Hot Wheels lines and we love that the toys are all very durable, they help develop creativity and keep children entertained for hours.
This time we received the new Mega Bloks First Builders Billy Beats Dancing Piano and the Hot Wheels Super Stunt Test Facility toys to review.
Mega Bloks First Builders Billy Beats Dancing Piano
This colourful little piano is great for dancing and playing along. It has three different modes of play: Dance with Billy, Teach Me and Free Play. Little ones press the light-up block keys to watch Billy dance and play one of eight different pre-programmed songs, they can also build their own songs and follow along or play different sounds including a Piano, Animal sounds and DJ/Party effects.
Billy Beats is a very interactive toy that keeps little ones entertained for hours and it’s lots of fun to play. 8 First Builders blocks are included and they can be securely stored away under his big red hat. With the blocks children can build and play/listen to music at the same time!
My son loves the little dancing piano and he really enjoys making his own “music” with the whacky DJ and funny animal sounds. He is already a big fan of Mega Bloks building blocks so having the blocks inside the piano adds to the fun and it’s an invitation to create and build.
- 3 modes of play: Dance with Billy, Teach Me and Free Play
- 8 colored light-up keys that can play single notes or 8 pre-programmed songs
- Sheet music on stickers included to build and stack a song to follow along
- Cool Piano, Whacky DJ and Funny Animal sounds with on/off switch
- Includes 8 First Builders blocks
- Requires 3 C batteries (included)
- Ages 1-5
The Super Stunt Test Facility from Mega Bloks Hot Wheels
The Hot Wheels Super Stunt Test Facility is recommended for children ages 5 and up. This fun buildable stunt facility is adjustable and it has a multi-mode ramp, Turbo Tire launcher, a”Bone Shaker” vehicle and two Team Red drivers.
The box comes with multiple little bags that contain all the parts needed to put it all together. It’s worth noting that this is not a toy for younger toddlers, there are a lot of very small pieces and it takes some time to finish putting it all together. I always build these with my son and I am also supervising the entire time.
My son and I have built several of these toys so we are very familiar with the process and he loves helping with the instructions and finding specific pieces to build. We really enjoy the process and he loves when he gets to play with the finished product.
The Super Stunt Test Facility is a lot of fun to play with after it’s built. The Turbo Tire launcher is really cool and my son loves having the car go up the ramps.
- Rebuildable Super Stunt Test Facility playset
- Adjustable multi-mode ramp
- Customizable Bone Shaker™ with chrome skull fender
- Cool Turbo Tire launcher for instant top speed!
- Two collectible Team Red action figures
- Ages 5+
