My almost 3-year-old son is completely obsessed with firetrucks, firefighters, robots, trucks and pirates, so you can imagine his excitement when we received a box from Mega Bloks with a cool looking Firetruck and a Hot Wheels Monster Truck to build. Happiest boy ever!
Firetruck Finn from the Mega Bloks First Builders line is a medium size firetruck that features a steering wheel, a ladder, a fireman buddy and thirteen colorful first builders blocks that fit inside it.
I love the fact that all the builders blocks fit inside of the firetruck to make clean-up easy and my son enjoys fighting pretend fires with his firetruck and then rebuilding towers and new buildings with his blocks.
He also likes sitting on the firetruck and riding on it around the house. I don’t think this toy was built for that reason but I guess he is light enough to ride on it o.k. I am sure most children would try it as well during play since the steering wheel makes it look like a small ride-on firetruck.
In general he has really enjoyed playing with the firetruck and I appreciate that the toy is durable and lots of fun for him.

Super Blitzen Monster Truck
We also received the Super Blitzen Monster Truck set from Mega Bloks Hot Wheels. This is a toy that is ideal for kids ages 5 and up because it comes in very small parts (blocks) that need to be assembled.
My son and I have built several toys that are similar so he knows that we sit at the table, follow the instructions on the guide and build the toy step by step. I usually build and he helps passing all the parts, it is something that we enjoy doing together and he is very patient.
The Super Blitzen Monster Truck set allows you to build a Super Blitzen car that you can then customize to become a monster truck or a cool race car. We love the fact that you get three different cars with the one kit and you get your own little driver that can go behind the wheel.
Building the cars was easy thanks to the clear step by step pictures and instructions. We had a good time building them together and my son had a lot of fun playing with the cars after they were built. I love toys that allow him to develop his imagination!
