Mega Bloks |The Blok Squad Fire Patrol Station Review

My six year old son will spend hours building with blocks so he was very excited to learn that Mega Bloks has the Blok Squad Fire Patrol Station. His eyes grew wide and he literally danced around the room clutching this 956 piece mega building set. He enlisted the help of his younger brother and sister and they all began the task of building the Fire Command 4×4 Truck, Fire Rescue Carrier, Fire Ladder Truck TL and Fire Rescue Chopper. This buildable set also includes 5 Blok Squad Firefighters so that the kids can play with their set once it has been built.

While a set this large may seem overwhelming at first, my children can’t get enough of it. Over the past few weeks, they have spent numerous hours dedicated to building and rebuilding their fire station and vehicles. It is amazing to watch them work cooperatively together and to see their imaginations at work. For example, each one takes on the role of a heroic firefighter to rescue civilians from dangerous situations and this building set really promotes creativity and imaginative play.

As a mom, I am very impressed with the quality of the pieces and overall set and the instructions that are included are easy for kids to follow with a bit of adult supervision as needed. My younger children actually manipulated the pieces without using the instructions and it was amazing to see what they created using their ingenuity. With other building sets typically being so expensive, I am also very appreciative that Mega Bloks® are very competitively priced and affordable. The Blok Squad Fire Patrol Station is only $39.99!

Mega Bloks® Blok Squad sets would make an excellent holiday gift idea and is perfect for hands on children who love to build. I highly recommend this set and plan to combine more Blok Squad sets like the Police Force Pursuit and the Construction Site for the holidays.

You can purchase Mega Bloks and Blok Squad building sets at Toys “R” Us stores and online, Walmart and Walmart.com and Amazon.com. You are also invited to visit the Mega Brands website to check out all of the fabulous building sets available.
