Thanks to Team Mom we had a chance to review one of Mega Bloks new games- Mega Bloks Dominos Build Game
The premise of the game is to play a round of dominos and during the game be awarded Mega Bloks to build your chosen animal every time you are able to lay down a domino tile. The game is aimed to help teach children about colors, numbers, matching and motor skills.
For younger children this game can be a great intro to the game of dominos and great opportunity to teach matching skills with both colors and animals. The Mega Bloks Dominos would be a fantastic first game for a child and offers great opportunities for learning the value of taking turns during games.
Well.... the game states it is meant for age ranges 3 to 6 and I can say without a doubt the 3 should be the maximum. If you are lucky your 4 year old may be entertained for one round of dominos but the skills range is definitely more for the older 2 to 3 year range. Besides the lack of interest for older children my only other complaint is the domino tiles are cardboard- kids and cardboard really don't mix well.
I am sure Maddie and I will play a few more round of dominos this week and then once she is old enough I am sure Maddie will have lots of fun teaching Zoey how to play!
The Mega Bloks Domino Build Game (retail price $10.99) is available at Amazon.com, Fred Myers, Toys R Us Canada (Quebec only) and Wal-Mart Canada.
