Building toys have been my salvation since my first son was born six years ago. We have slowly collected many many building sets over the years, including this set of Mega Bloks for the bath tub!
It’s a new product, scheduled to hit stores this month (Happy New Year!), and my boys have had so much fun building and breaking down in a new place with the added fun of water.
The red octopus (pictured on the left) goes at the bottom – it has a few suction cups to secure everything to the bottom of the tub. All the other fishy friends stack on top. Some of the pieces have moving parts to create a very fun waterfall for the bathers to watch.
My two older boys are getting older and were not okay with me taking pictures of them in the tub – they’re so modest these days, which is a nice change actually…So we set it up and they played in the bathroom, which was just as much fun!
The purple octopus piece goes on top and the others fit anywhere in between. The octopus has a little hole for the water to trickle through and it hits all the other pieces on its way down. The starfish spins, the shark dips, and the fish catches the water.
This set can be combined with any other Mega Bloks pieces to make an even bigger, more impressive waterfall structure.

Happy New Year. May you and yours build many, many things this year!
