Mega Bloks Play n' Go Musical Train and 3 in 1 Fire Truck Ride On Review

I have found that at 18 months, kids want to play with toys that may be appropriate for a 3 year old, but either are developmentally or physically too young to be able to play with a toy safely.  Safety is one of my main concerns and when it comes to Mega Bloks, I have no concerns.  The Mega Bloks are prefect for little hands!  They are also the perfect size not to be swallowed.  I have finally found a brand of toys perfect for my little guy that I feel comfortable letting him play with on his own.

Mega Bloks Play'n Go Musical Train  and Mega Bloks: 3-in-1 Fire-Truck Ride-On have got to be two of the cutest toys for the 1+ crowd this holiday season.  We LOVE Mega Bloks in our house.  Mason started getting into Mega Bloks about 2 months ago and he has been full steam ahead!  These are the first Mega Bloks play set I have introduced him to and I can honestly tell you that he has NOT stopped playing with them since I received them for review.  

If you are looking for a toy for your little one that is fun and can be safely played with, check out the Mega Bloks Play'n Go Musical Train.  This "farm-themed" railway has all the necessities any little budding farmer needs.  Included in this 28-piece buildable railway, you will find a train with 2 train cars attached, a Farmer, a Cow and a Sheep figurine, the railway track, archway and blocks to create a tunnel for the train to go through, complete with swing doors.  There are also special accessory blocks like bunnies, vegetables, and a duck crossing.

I set up the train tracks for Mason and he immediately pressed the smoke stack and off the train went!  He followed the train around the track wiggling to the song, "Old McDonald".  The train chugged around and whistled as it went.  I love the amount of possibilities possible with the Play'n Go Musical Train.  I can easily see Mason spending hours of imaginative play with the train and recreating the tracks over and over again.  He also took the train off the  track and let chug around on our hardwood floors.  It moved so it easily without the track too!

The Play'n Go Musical Train retails for $29.99 and is appropriate for ages 1 and up.

Have a cat stuck in a tree?  Your little one can imagine they are a real fire fighter while riding to the rescue with sirens calling all around the backyard!  With endless possibilities, the 3 in 1 Red Fire Truck will make any little kid happy. 

Mega Bloks: 3-in-1 Fire-Truck Ride-On is one of the best ride on toys we have come across for Mason.  This is a 3 in 1 Fire Truck toy that has a large sterning wheel, lights, fire truck siren sounds, and a "open-top bed" that can hold an array of toys, blocks, balls, or just about anything else.  Mason likes to collect stones from our backyard and push the truck back over to the patio to dump the stones all over. 

This Fire Truck also can be used  as a "push-behind walker" to help early walkers get around on their own.  Mason is a very steady runner these days, but he still love to push his toy truck around instead of riding on it.  He also loves to sit and ride on it, all while playing with the fire hose lever activating the lights and sounds. 

I love that you can play and build with additional Mega Bloks right in the bed of the truck.  This is a nice feature that offers even more play possibilities.  This fire truck is really a perfect size.  Little ones can easily climb on and off the truck by themselves.  This will definitely help develop and strengthen those leg muscles!

Mega Bloks: 3-in-1 Fire-Truck Ride-On is perfect for children 1 and older and retails for $39.99.  It includes 11 pieces in all.
