Enter the third dimension: Mayka Toy Block Tape Review

posted in: Reviews | 18

If there is one toy that I don’t mind buying (more of ) for my son, it’s Lego and building blocks. Because there is just so much one can do/ build/ create with them – from mini cities to the zoo to a park to the Batcave (!!!), the possibilities are endless. When Little Man is pre-occupied with his legos, I don’t hear the much-dreaded phrase “I’m bored”. Plus, I know he is using his imagination and igniting his creativity… win, win, win.

So when I was asked to review the new Mayka Toy Block Tape, that has recently been launched in the UK, I couldn’t be more excited. The colourful strips of wonder (as I call them) add that third dimension to lego and the like. Available in three sizes and nine colours, the Mayka Toy Block Tape instantly transforms almost any surface into a base for building blocks, cars to race on (as Little Man has made a racetrack from his tape) and go inside tunnels and figures to climb.

The top features a bendable, flexible surface that is compatible with Lego® bricks and all other leading toy block brands, while the bottom has a re-usable, adhesive backing that can stick onto most surfaces and objects, making anything from a cupboard to the underneath of a desk a base for little hands to build. The magical tape can even stick onto corners and curved surfaces to make 3D creations, leaving no stone unturned in the creative world of block building. Think horizontal towers and upside-down houses…

While the tape can be cut to any desired size, my excited son preferred to stick with the whole strip – first making it a long racetrack up his wardrobe which he later transformed into a runway for his Lego aeroplane. Needless to say, the Mayka Toy Block Tape kept him occupied through the afternoon, leaving me with time to write this review!

We later checked out the Mayka TV commercial together and got some more interesting ideas on where to stick the tape next (like to the window and onto the wall to make Spiderman’s web). Little Man however chose his little Thomas and Friends table to make an angular train. But the possibilities are endless.

As I mentioned, I love building blocks and Legos for my son, and what’s not to like about the Mayka Block Tape? It adds that something extra to building and creating, giving the whole process a little zing in terms of design and possibilities. A superb addition to your child’s toy collection indeed!

The small (1m 2 stud) tape is priced at £6.99, medium (2m 2 stud) at £9.99 and large (2m 4 stud) at £14.99.

      Yes, it is quite a unique and genius invention… as you rightly put it, hours of fun and creativity:)

      It is pretty cool; I dare say I was more excited with it than my son when it arrived:)

      It is a lovely addition to Lego. So much one can do with it…
      Thanks for reading:)

    What a great idea. I wonder how long the reusable adhesive lasts for. Unfortunately with Ben’s bedroom being carpeted I think it probably wouldn’t be idea for him.
    Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x

      It doesn’t need to be stuck to the carpet… the point is it can stick to the wall/ window/ table, upside down, basically anywhere… so I’m sure that won’t be a problem. Thanks for reading!

    What a fab idea! It really opens up new possibilities and I think my two little Lego lovers would be all over this. Great price too! Thanks for linking to #DreamTeam x

      Yes it does open up a new world of interesting creations! Quite unique, I must say…

    I’ve heard of this tape and I think it sounds fab! My eldest has just got into lego and it really is such a brilliant toy with so many possibilities. And this tape creates a load more too! #blogcrush

    This is very cool… My daughter prefers wooden blocks, but I’m sure that Wills will be a lego fan as he grows so I’ll keep this in mind for the future. #dreamteam
