What our experts think

Children absolutely loved the bright colours and the huge number of tiles in the Pastel Mega Pack. Although even with 202 pieces, they still ran out! Our testers really liked the big tiles included in the set and had great fun building their own designs, from a house and a rocket, to a monster truck and London Bridge. The structures were strong enough to withstand pretend play too, with children adding figures to play in the house they had built.

The Pastel Mega Pack is a brilliant example of how children’s STEAM learning can be reinforced through creative play. Children played for a long time and used vocabulary they had learned in school such as transparent, repellant (magnet), and right-angles, all within a meaningful and practical context.

The models were lovely and sturdy but sometimes children needed help to take them apart again. When the model has a lot of pieces it can also be quite heavy, so you may need to remind your child to take particular care when deconstructing larger models, and suggest they remove the tiles from the top first.
