Sweeties Review of the Mega Bloks Domino Build game

When I opened the box and saw this colorful game inside I was immediately excited. The company did a great job of creating interesting packaging that makes you want to find out what it inside. Kids will love the bright colors, big chunky blocks and sturdy cardboard domino pieces. The chunky blocks are perfect for the younger children at the bottom of the recommended age limit and the youngest child gets to start the game so it helps them get an edge up.

Each child picks 2 dominos from the pile of cards and the youngest child gets to pick 3. As each child places their tiles in front of them and matches up the animals they get to pick on of the chunky blocks that makes up their animal and build the animal. Each child is playing right in front of them and not in the center of the table so this helps them keep track of where they are at in the game.

I really like this game for the ages they suggest and kids will just love it. Not only are they building they are also learning about matching, colors, and shapes. An adult should probably help younger children but definitely let them place the cards together and build their favorite zoo animal.

The Mega Bloks game is also a perfect learning opportunity for parents and even the babysitter to do a little teaching by pointing out shapes, colors, showing how things fit together, and learning about numbers.

The Mega Bloks Domino Build Game is very affordable at $10.99 and is currently available (at the time of this writing) for purchase at Amazon.com, Fred Myers, Toys R Us Canada (Quebec only), and Wal-Mart Canada.
