Build your own animal parade with the MEGA Bloks Elephant Parade toy. This comes with 25 pieces so that toddlers and preschoolers can build four different animals and pull them along on all sorts of adventures. Everything stores inside the elephant's circular body. Open it up to find red pieces for building a monkey, green pieces for building a toucan, purple pieces for building a hippo, and yellow pieces for building a giraffe. There is also building space right on the elephant body.
The hippo and giraffe are built on rolling wheel bases that can be attached together and then attached to the back of the elephant. When kids pull the elephant along with the pull string, they'll be able to pull their animals along with them and create their own animal parade. And the elephant body spins!
This is a cute way for the youngest kids to engage in creative building while also working on color recognition and fine motor skills. Little kids will like building and stacking the blocks to create some fun animals, and pulling the elephant along to take him and the other animals on all sorts of pretend adventures.
The MEGA Bloks Elephant Parade is for ages 1 to 5. It's a nice first block set for young kids, especially kids who like animals.
There are stickers to put on the blocks so they look like the animals. An adult will probably want to do that.
This is also available in a purple version, which is sold separately.
