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!
Disclosure: I was given the Mayka Toy Block Tape to review and keep; however all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
