Such excitement when these Fisher-Price MEGA BLOKS arrived. Perfect for little hands, these big blocks fit together and come apart easily, helping to develop fine motor skills as little ones enjoy hours of creative, open-ended play.
Block play offers creative and valuable play and learning experiences. It offers children the freedom to explore, take apart and put back together any block-based creation they can think of.
We had hours of endless fun with these.
Learning through play
Play is a fundamental part of how your little builder learns, grows and develops! As part of the Fisher Price® family, Mega Bloks® building toys encourage toddler’s early childhood development with their vibrant colours, easy-to-grip shapes and innovative features that spark their senses and imagination.
So what can our children learn from block play?
Problem solving. Sometimes it is intentional: “I want to build X. How do I do that?” Other times it is in-the-moment: “To go higher and add to one side, what can I use?”—Peter Pizzolongo
Imagination. Children can follow their own plan, or they can share a friend’s vision and work together to create something they never dreamed of.—Karen Cairone
Self-expression. Blocks offer many ways for young dual language learners to explore, express themselves, and demonstrate what they are learning across languages.— Karen Nemeth
Mathematics. Important concepts and skills are practiced and strengthened through block play, including length, measurement, comparison, number, estimation, symmetry, balance.—Kristen Kemple
Continuity and permanence. Block play engages spatial sense and motor abilities; it can be a solo or a group effort; block creations can stand for an indefinite period of time.—Lawrence Balter
Creativity. Blocks and other loose parts can be moved freely by children, to be combined and recombined in countless ways.—Angela Eckhoff
Science. Blocks offer opportunities to test hypotheses and build scientific reasoning.—Gayle Mindes
Self-esteem. Children discover that they have ideas and that they can bring their ideas to life by creating, transforming, demolishing, and re-creating something unique.—Holly Bohart
Social and emotional growth. Blocks help children learn to take turns and share materials, develop new friendships, become self-reliant, increase attention span, cooperate with others, and develop self-esteem.— Kathleen Harris
Development in all areas. Block play requires fine and gross motor skills. Blocks enhance children’s problem-solving abilities, mathematics skills, and language and literacy abilities. And constructing “creations” builds selfesteem and feelings of success. —Linda Taylor
