For over 30 years, Mega Bloks® has helped parents everywhere nurture their toddlers’ curiosity and creativity.
We know play is an important part of how your toddler is learning to move, think and feel. And that’s why First Builders blocks are made just for preschoolers’ little hands and growing minds. We take pride in each toy we create and in the amazing things we can help your child achieve every time they play.
So, from the first block they grasp to each new step in your child’s development, Mega Bloks® will be there to help you Build Them Up™.Explore First Builders
Learn and grow with toys that promote early childhood development.
Hearing, seeing, touching. Through their senses, babies and toddlers first become aware of the world around them. In fact, their senses truly “light up” areas of their brains.
Huge physical milestones occur in the early years – stretching, walking, running. The ability to coordinate large muscles to reach those milestones – and more – gets refined as your child plays and grows.
From grasping a block to holding a pencil, developing control of small muscles helps lead to success in school and in life.
A mind that can imagine and ask questions is able to problem-solve, figure things out and make things happen; to remember what came before and, quite naturally, wonder what’s possible next.
From ABCs to reading, from numbers to counting and getting a handle on basic science and engineering principles, the early years of play help build a foundation for success.
Asking “what if?” Dreaming up new ways to see the world. Expressing oneself through imaginative play and storytelling. These are things great thinkers do, and they’re wonderful ways to open your child’s mind.
Taking turns, sharing, and getting along with others takes time and kindness; practicing while playing makes it easier. Plus, it’s bound to lead to your child’s first friendships!
A child can always benefit from being able to focus and be a good listener. The ability to understand and express – both verbally and through non-verbal cues – is just as important.
Identifying feelings and knowing that others may feel differently are skills your child develops naturally through play. Developing empathy and using self-control to express those feelings appropriately will come with patience.
We all want our children to have emotional connections, to feel happy and secure – now and when they’re all grown up.
