Mega Bloks Scooping Wagon
( Fisher-Price $34.99)
Loaded with twenty big mega bloks, this tot-sized red wagon has a big easy grip blue handle with a build-able section. Toddlers can wheel their blocks from one place to another and enjoy filling and spilling them, often as much as building with them. This little wagon has a scoop at the bottom BUT it only sort of works sometimes, and not very well. You have to PUSH the wagon rather than pull it over the blocks for it to scoop the blocks up. The fact that it did not work in both directions bothered parents more than the kids who still enjoyed the toy. Parents also wished that it came with more bloks! That said, this is a big toy keyed into toddlers love of locomotion; their own and anything with wheels. Marked 12 months to 5 years, we would say-- a good choice for steady on their feet toddlers 18 months and up. Not likely to be of interest past 3.
Ages: Toddlers, Preschoolers
