Mega Bloks L'il Princess Review

You may have read my blog post the other day about how I think that Lara wasn't ready for Lego yet - the pieces are too fiddly and she doesn't have a long enough attention span. The thing is that Lara LOVES building things, especially castles and so we were over the moon to be asked to review the new L'il Princess Twinkle Castle by Mega Bloks.

The Twinkle Castle is just one of the sets from the new Mega Bloks L'il Princess range and it costs around £39.99. The set comes with over 60 pieces including two little princesses - Nova and Luna - and their flying pony friend. The building blocks come in different shades of pink and white, along with a few shaped green bloks.

There is a good mix of sizes of bloks for Lara to build with but to make the MOST impressive castles she mixes the bloks with her existing bag of basic Mega Bloks to build taaaaaall towers. Lara's favourite pieces from the set are the sparkly towers which are translucent with glittery bits - they make a brilliant finishing touch for any of her castle masterpieces.

Lara insisted that I build the castle courtyard exactly how it is shown in the instruction booklet and then spent ages playing princesses with her two little figurines. The two princesses have sparkly tiaras which pop-up when you place the princesses on a blok or on their pony.

As a mum with limited floor space the BEST thing about the Twinkle Castle is the big tub that it comes in! Not only is it a great starting point for building stable and sturdy castles but it is large enough to house our entire Mega Bloks collection which means that we can keep everything in one place and that Lara can build castles on a scale she never thought imaginable.
