If there’s one thing Tater loves to do, it’s putting together building blocks. He likes to build things and have us guess what they are. He has fun doing it, and always wants us to do it with him. Which is why Mega Blok’s Blok Squad Fire Patrol Rescue was a perfect thing for Tater and his dad to put together.
Although the set is geared for kids 5 and up, with his dad’s help, he was able to build the Fire Rescue Pumper Truck for the Blok Squad Firefighters to hook up their hoses to so they could put out fires and save Bloktropolis. They even put together the Fire Patrol ATV. The set has 190 pieces…and I’m talking very SMALL pieces, and it took the two of them some time to get it together.
Was it fun? Did it keep them busy? Did they spend some father/son time together doing something Tater loves? Yes to all three questions.
Do I want something with 190 very small pieces in the house? Absolutely not. Ethan ended up dropping the truck on the tile floor and it broke all over. Pieces scattered everywhere. I thought I got them all cleaned up, but I’m still finding the pieces in the girls mouths. I have no idea where they keep finding them, but they do!
I think the Blok Squad Fire Patrol Rescue is a great set and Ethan enjoyed putting it together. However if you have small kids in the house, you might want to steer clear of it for a few more years.
