OT Approved Toy | Mega Bloks

I LOVE building toys! They are great for pretend play, as well as for developing fine motor skills. I especially like Mega Bloks because the size and ease of connecting the blocks is great for a first building block set. I use these when babies are first learning the concept of pulling apart and pushing together. They are also great for practicing releasing objects into a container. As kids get older, you can sort by size or color for more educational activities.

Best for ages: 1 - 4 years

Skills addressed: 

  • fine motor
  • grasping/releasing
  • bilateral coordination 
  • pretend play 
  • eye hand coordination


If your kids are a bit older:

I recommend Lego Duplo Blocks for ages 3 -5 and traditional Lego Blocks for ages 5 and up.

Where to buy:

Mega Bloks can an typically be found anywhere that toys are sold. You can also find a wide selection on Amazon.
