Block Scooping Wagon

Block Scooping Wagon

Spring 2016 Toys
Ages: 1 - 5 yrs.
Manufacturer: Mega Bloks, Inc.
Price: $34.99

The cleverly designed colorful Block Scooping Wagon incorporates wagon play, building, and storing. We pushed and pulled the wagon, unloaded the blocks, built something, knocked it down, cleaned it up and put it away - accompanied by child-produced sound effects including vehicles, varooms, and vacuum cleaners.

In addition to the open ended play, we were pleased that the kids connected pretend clean up with tangible clean up. The lessons of cause and effect and the accomplishment of the task itself has made doing real chores a fun activity. The wagon comes equipped with 20 large "My First Builder" brick bloks that our two year old found easy to hold and manipulate.
