My kids are big fans of Mega Bloks, and my daughter Lucy absolutely loves Dora. So, when Mega Bloks created their Dora Playsets, and Team Mom gave me (andLucy!) the opportunity to review one, I jumped at the chance!
We received the Dora’s Bathtime Set. Lucy and I had so much fun putting it together. Her favorite part was adding the stickers on the blocks. The one bummer, though, was that Boots was just a sticker. Since Boots is our favorite friend of Dora’s, it was disappointing that he wasn’t an actual figurine. And I really didn’t get why the brush was a sticker on a block too. Even if Dora doesn’t have real hair, it still would have been nice to have a brush and not a brush sticker on a block. Lucy seemed to be ok with it, though, and she still plays with the set for hours and hours. She loves that you can change Dora’s skirt and hang up the one that she’s not using on a tiny little hanger. She also loved the little “rubber ducky” that came with it so that Dora can have a toy to play with in the bathtub.
One feature that I really love is that you can play with this set alone, or use it along with other Mega Bloks playsets. It’s very versatile, and it’s been tons of fun for Lucy.
At $14.99, the playset is a great value from Mega Bloks. Honestly? I would pay a bit more if the set came with a “real” brush and a Boots figurine.
There are several Dora playsets available from Mega Bloks, and you can check them out at the Mega Bloks Family Club website. (Be sure to join the Mega Bloks Family Club if you haven’t already.

The Dora playsets are also available at Toys “R” Us, Walmart, select Target stores, and on Amazon.com.
