Mega Bloks Minions Castle Adventure Playset Review
Minions! Minions! Minions!
Yes, we have gone a little minions crazy at Saving Said Simply, and for good reason! The Minions movie is now in theaters and we are bringing all of the action from the big screen to playtime thanks to Mega Bloks. Want to know what fun we’re mischievously making? I have 7 reasons your kids will love the brand new Mega Bloks Minions Castle Adventure Playset, the hottest building playset of the summer!
1. It has 786 pieces. We touched ALL of them
You know that amazing feel you get when you get a HUGE set of building blocks? Where the box is almost bigger than you? That’s right, this amazing Mega Bloks Minions Castle Adventure Playset has a whopping 786 pieces. I don’t think I’ve ever had a set that big. And with over 300 different types of unique, interesting and exclusive Mega Bloks pieces, my son was so excited to literally touch, examine and build with each and every one of them.
2. Hours of building
2 instruction booklets. 114 steps. Over 60 pages. And hours of building bliss. My son could not have been more enthralled, engaged or excited about building a massive castle brick by brick. We love the Mega Bloks instruction books. Well thought out and easy to understand, my son’s little engineering mind went into full force as he turned the pages and imagined a castle being brought to life.
3. Accomplishment on a LARGE scale
Knowing the little hard worker well, I could see the pride on his face when the 114 building steps were done. A full 3 story castle before his eyes, all built by his own two hands and the help of Mega Bloks. Definitely NOT an easy feat, but the determination and dedication to such a big project made this accomplishment much sweeter.
4. Bring on the action!
This set comes with not one, not two but three minions! Kevin, Stuart and Bob are all here and ready for castle adventures with your little minion fan. Pose-able, moveable and even including cool accessories like a giant crown, ziplines and jewels, your kids will love bringing their friends to life before and after seeing the Minions movie!
5. Awesome Features for Guaranteed Playtime FUN!
Not only did we enjoy hours of bonding together as mommy and son built this amazing and intricate set, but now my son enjoys creating his own minion adventures. Not relying on technology or electronics to drive playtime, this castle is built with tons of amazing features that you’d expect from Mega Bloks.
- Open and close safe
- Roof trap door
- Swinging hammer
- Toppling walkway
- Laser beams
- Dungeon with security camera
- and more!
3 stories and 3 separate towers offer plenty of room for your child (and even a few friends) to come along for the adventure. Hoist the castle banner and watch as your children imagine and discover play in a whole new way. I love standing in the doorway and listening to the adventures my son dreams up for his little minions.
6. Easy storage
Ok, so not only do you have an impressive tower castle, but when playtime is done you can fold in for easy storage! The two side towers fold in to make the castle more compact and portable. A toy that stores easier? A dream come true for building blocks, right parents?
7. Cool Mom Status
And if nothing else, this amazing Mega Bloks Minions Castle Adventure Playset gives me “Cool Mom Status,” like for life. I cannot tell you how many thank you, hugs and kisses this boy has given me since this set made it home. He’s so so so excited to play, and it’s yet another activity where I can tear him away from screen time and into creativity and imagination.
I think the best part about this set is the pricing point. While normal 786+ piece building blocks sets can be upwards of $150-$300, the new Mega Bloks Minions Castle Adventure set retails with an MSRP of only $74.99. Seriously a great deal for this large of a set. Recommended for ages 5 years+, we enjoyed the hours of building and now hours of playtime this set has brought to our son.
Available right now at your favorite Mega Bloks retailer, you can enjoy the new Minions movie and create lasting memories thanks to Mega Bloks! Be sure to follow Mega Bloks via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube for the latest new sets, inspiration and more!
