Mega Bloks ABC Musical Train

(Fisher-Price $19.99)

 

We note that an earlier version of a “Mega Bloks Learning Train” all the alphabet letter stickers had to be applied and consumers were not happy. Good News this season! The letters are printed on and the train is almost ready, although to get the wheels of the train to go round and round, an adult needs to snap them into place. It’s not a big thing and once they are on, they’re there to stay…the wheels are not part of the construction play. This musical train has a built-in button on the smokestack that plays the traditional ABC song in parts…not all the way through. The three train cars connect with ease and the alphabet blocks can be stacked on the cars. Use them to spell your child’s name or sort them with all the letters on red blocks and all the yellow ones. This is labeled 1+, but learning letter names is not really a game for 1s and 2s and may only slightly interest 3s. Ones will probably like filling and spilling the 50 pieces of this toy in and out of the box or a bucket in their favorite game of fill and dump. Treat this as a movable construction toy that will take some dexterity to do. Use the blocks (without regard to letters) for building towers, tunnels as they learn how blocks with pegs stay together and come apart. We think this is more like a 2+ birthday present
