MEGA BLOKS® Blok Squad Fire Patrol Rescue Review

Mega Bloks Fire Patrol Rescue


Both of my kids love building toys.  Whether it’s building a space station or fire station, they both enjoy it.  I think that’s pretty great considering they are 12 and 5 and a boy and a girl, respectively.

When I received this Mega Blok Fire Patrol Rescue building set to review, my son jumped on putting it togehter while my daughter rounded up her other ‘play people’ and got them ready for a fire drill.  Talk about a noisy afternoon in the Hagan house!

Blok Squad Fire Patrol Rescue

Mega Bloks thought of all the details with their Blok Squad play sets.  The Fire Patrol Rescue set comes with tiny little fire extenguishers and other tools that fit just right on the fire truck and inside it.  The doors actually swing out and the tools can be stored inside the fire truck.  How cool is that?  The set comes with a buildable Fire Rescue Pumper Truck and Fire Patrol ATV and includes 2 Blok Squad Firefighters.  There are 190 pieces in this set.

All missions are possible when you team up with the two Rescue vehicles of the Blok Squad Fire Patrol Rescue! Build the Fire Rescue Pumper Truck and roar through the streets of Bloktropolis with sirens blaring, carrying hundreds of gallons of water to help put out a fire. Have your Blok Squad Firefighters hook up their hoses and put out fires in even the most remote areas of Bloktropolis! Construct the Fire Patrol ATV and have your Blok Squad Firefighter ride through the toughest terrains to reach any country or city fire! Scout ahead to remote regions of Bloktropolis and help save trapped civilians in an emergency!

Our Barbie Princess Charm School DVD Party

Huh?  What?  Umm..

Sit up straight.  Set the table correctly.  Say please and thank you.

These are all things that we try to get our kids to stop saying and start doing by teaching them manners and etiquette.  It’s nice to have a creative way to present a lesson in manners and we hit the jackpot with our recent Barbie Princess Charm School DVD party.  We got together with some friends and had our very own Barbie Princess Charm School Party to celebrate the upcoming release of the new Barbie Princess Charm School DVD coming out in the Fall.

Each guest (aka princess) was given a Tiara, a manners checklist, a table setting placemat, and a certificate of completion of Barbie Princess Charm School.  At the end of the party, all of the guests were given a Certificate of Completion to keep for completing Barbie Princess Charm School!  The girls were so proud!

Moon Dough..both of my kids love this stuff!

Moon Dough is an out-of-this-world new molding dough that never dries out and is easy to clean up!  See my hint (*) below.

Hypo-allergenic and wheat-free, soft and marshmallow-like, Moon Dough does not stick to or stain material. Because Moon Dough never dries out, kids can use it again and again.  Just be sure to set up a mat for your kids to play on so you can wipe it all up and save it for next time.

Moon Dough is the latest and greatest new molding compound for kids ages 2-4 to sculpt into fun creations they will love to play with. The line also offers a variety of enjoyable play sets.

Molding the farm animals is a breeze for my 4 year old and my 11 year old finds it really funny to make his own shapes and ‘alien animals’ with Moon Dough.

What I love about Moon Dough:

  • Moon Dough is easy for kids to mold into shapes
  • Lots of colors & molds are available
  • It’s easy to clean up!  Just use a ball of Moon Dough to dab up other pieces.  You can even vacum Moon Dough up.

* Compress Moon Dough into a ball before giving it to your kids to play make it less flaky and more fun!

Buy the Moon Dough Magic Barnyard and other Moon Dough products here at Amazon.com.
