A Dragon Universe? It's Not As Scary As It Sounds

Once again, thanks to Mom Select and Mommyparties, I got to be part of some really big smiles and alot of laughs. Some lucky kids got a chance to get a free Dragon courtesy of Megabloks.
When I signed up to have this party I hadn't even really seen the dragons yet. I didn't even know what they were, but I knew that the Megabloks name was usually synonymous with a good time for my kids so I wasn't too worried. I was sure that whatever this "dragon" was, it'd be a great quality toy that the kids would love.
What I didn't expect was that it was going to be so hard for me to stay out of the toys myself lol. They just look so neat and the huge warships were all brightly colored and looked like they were going to be a blast! I managed to keep from opening the big warships but I did finally have to open and dragon egg and check it out. I just couldn't help myself! My boyfriend and I put it together, well okay, mostly he did but we played with it for almost half an hour. No kids were around either lol. It was just so cool!

I couldn't wait to present them to the kids. I wasn't a bit disappointed either! The boys loved them and put them together in short order. One of my nephews put together several of them and spent the next hour or so pretending the dragons were flying and shooting some bad guy from somewhere or another.

The toys were easy to assemble, especially thanks to the directions, otherwise it could be a little tricky for us adults. The kids of course had no such trouble. The ships offered a little more trouble but my nephew figured it out pretty quickly and he was off to the next step. Even my 2 nieces were intrigued with the dragon toys. They're a great way for the kids to use their imagination and just have a grand ole time.

I'm so glad I signed up to host this particular party. I loved seeing the smiles on the kids faces and the ways in which they used the toys to suit their personalities. Some Dragons flew fiercely across the sky and some were sweet dragons simply looking around looking for something to munch on. Imagination is a wonderful thing! Thank you Momselect, Mommyparties and MegaBloks for such an awesome product!
