I must say a huge thanks to Mega Brands for giving me (my son) the awesome opportunity to review some of their *New fall toys, one of which being the “Hot Wheels Super Blitzen Monster Truck”
This toy is recommended for children 5 years of age and older so I did most of the building as my little one is better at destroying contruction toys than he is at building them, the little ones anyways 😉 I found that the instructions were fairly simple to understand although constructing it was a little more difficult as I haven’t put together one of these set in more than 15 years but after a few minutes it came back to me! This awesome toy can be made into 3 vehicles that are merely a few moved/added pieces making it very easy to switch vehicles once you have the main one made 🙂
One of the coolest vehicles I thought was the monster truck as there is a motorized piece that allows the truck to be pulled back and released to make it drive forward! I think my son liked that car best too as he drove it around forever lol. The kit also includes a Mega Bloks Team Hot Wheels micro-action figure who comes apart like the old ones but this ones is bigger so the pieces aren’t as easy to lose! I also really liked the fact that the pieces actually stayed together and nice and tightly too, so my son wasn’t having to ask for it to be rebuilt all the time 🙂
With Christmas soon approaching I recommend this product to anyone with a child that likes cars and likes to build. They will be overjoyed and amused for hours as well as to those of you parents that like to build, it is a great family activity! This product is sure to be a hit with any little boy whether he be a nephew, a son or maybe your kids friend. Some girls might like this also.. Hey who said Girls can’t play with cars & trucks?? 🙂
Look for Mega Brands *New Fall 2013 line in local retailers as well as through Sears stores and other outlets 🙂 For more information please visit their:
